Both Palma's historic centre and the newer part of town are lively areas indeed, and you'll find great places to eat throughout both. But if you're in the mood to enjoy some superb local food in a quieter setting while gazing out at the big blue Mediterranean, head instead down to the Passeig Maritim, where among the many eateries you'll find one that looks almost like it's tied up amid the the boats: El Pesquero Tapas Bar. This place has two terraces over the water, sheltered under trees and umbrellas. The prices aren't cheap but the quality is outstanding, and so are the views of the harbour, the boats, and of course beyond it all, the sparkling expanse of the sea.
