It’s easy to understand why this waterfront restaurant and bar, near Palma’s renovated Gothic building Sa Llotja, has been attracting customers for more than half a century.

Pesquero has the perfect position on the Paseo Marítimo to watch the fishing boats coming and going, and fishermen as they laboriously sort their nets on the quayside. Little wonder that it has long been an emblematic place in Mallorca’s capital for many locals.
A recent refurbishment has given Pesquero a more stylish contemporary look, with new parasols, outdoor heaters (for cooler weather), and drinks bar on the wood-decked terrace, and the addition of glazed panels on the seafront side of the terrace. The sliding glass doors on the terrace side of the restaurant can be opened fully to give an alfresco feel to almost the whole place.
The à la carte menu offers plenty of choice, and is written in several languages, including Russian. There’s a good choice of tapas and starters, salads, rice and pasta dishes, grilled meats and, of course, fish and shellfish. Vegetarians will also find suitable dishes.
We enjoyed a delicious vegetable paella topped with Sóller prawns (for a minimum of two diners), and perfectly cooked grilled butterflied sea bass. The reasonably priced wines are mainly Spanish and Mallorcan, with one or two Italian and French labels, and some smaller bottles on the list if you don’t want a full one.
A good-value ‘menú del día’ is offered for lunch from Monday to Friday, consisting of three courses (with a choice of dishes for each one) and a drink, for just 16 euros (including VAT). For the lighter appetite, a main course and drink costs 11 euros. On another recent visit, during the Boat Show Palma, we enjoyed a generous prawn salad, with a drink, for this price.
Pesquero is open all day from 08:00h until 01:00h, and whether you come for breakfast, lunch, dinner, tapas, drinks from the bar, or just a coffee or tea, you can enjoy the impressive views.
