This place is like none of the other ‘chiringuitos’ – beach bars – along Muro beach. People travel to the north of Mallorca just for the Ponderosa Beach experience, so booking a table well in advance is essential in high season.

If you drive to Ponderosa Beach, follow the sign off a roundabout for Ses Casetes des Capellans. Pass through this cluster of small holiday and weekend homes and leave your car in the parking area – which can be very busy over high-season weekends. You’re almost there. At the end of Ponderosa’s boardwalk, Alcúdia bay and glittering Mediterranean views greet you.
The simple but cool décor of Ponderosa Beach includes colourful wall-mounted old ‘persianas’ and white tables and chairs. Kick off those shoes and sink your toes into the sand beneath you. Great music – with DJ sets and regular live artistes – adds to the ambience. Local DJs include Ponderosa’s own Fernando Gullón; others come from as far away as London and Madrid. In the summer months, a ‘shop’ sells cool beach clothing and accessories.
In 2016 Ponderosa Beach raised its culinary game when it appointed three new chefs. Abraham Artigas was formerly sous chef at the trendy Bambhudda in Ibiza; Kike Martí is an award-winning ‘maestro arrocero’ from Valencia, and pastry chef Alejandra Cevallos came here from the Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa.
Ponderosa Beach sticks to the ‘0km cuisine’ concept. This means they buy high-quality ingredients (organic where possible) direct from local producers. The delicious and well-presented Mediterranean food has some tasty Asian touches. The à la carte menu offers starters, Kike’s highly recommended paellas, salads, pastas, fish, meat, and Alejandra’s superb home-made desserts. Moreish cocktails come in a trendy glass jar or cellophane bag with a straw.
If you can’t get a table reservation for lunch or dinner, how about breakfast? From around 09:30h daily you can feast on a choice of filled rolls, muesli and yogurt with fruit, pancakes, eggs, toast, and natural juices. Could there be a more pleasurable location to start your day?
All of this is only part of the Ponderosa experience. What makes Ponderosa Beach even more special is the people who work here. The servers may look cool and laidback, but they’re super-efficient as well as friendly. Their smiles are everywhere … but they are, after all, working in one of Mallorca’s best beach eateries.
In 2016, Ponderosa Beach’s season ends October 22nd.
We love…their social conscience: two of their dishes are ‘solidarity’ dishes, the sale of which supports two NGOs off the island.
