When the doors here opened in late June 2015 they revealed a new eating-out concept on the island, and superb renovation of an emblematic building. In just three months, more than 20,000 people visited to eat and drink from its 17 permanent ‘stalls’.
Open daily from midday until late, San Juan resembles similar European capitals’ gastronomic markets, and American mall food halls. Browse the stalls, buy what you fancy, and take a stool at the long central high tables. You could soon be chatting to the locals – the majority of the clientele so far. Alfresco dining is at conventional tables and chairs.
The variety of cuisine includes Thai, Japanese, traditional Mallorcan, German, Latin American (ceviches and tacos), Italian, Basque pintxos, gourmet hamburgers, BBQ meat, and tortillas and vermouth (on tap). In the café (open from 10:00h), enjoy coffee and cakes from well-known local patisserie La Madeleine de Proust.
San Juan also has a cocktail bar and upper-floor show kitchen hosting regular foodie events. Although not in central Palma, this popular place is on several bus routes and has a large underground public car park.
We love… The sociable ambience and the décor.
