Vegetarians used to get a pretty rough deal eating out on Mallorca, but things have improved immensely for those who choose not to eat meat or fish (and also for vegans). It’s a far cry from our first experience – in 2004 – of taking some island-visiting veggie friends out for dinner.

The 12th Tast de Vins de la DO Pla i Llevant in Manacor, Mallorca, was another great success. We’ve lived here eleven years and seen the annual event grow from its original location in the Museu de Enegistes on the outskirts of Manacor, to its current venue in the Sant Vicenç Ferrer cloister. We don’t remember much about the wines in our first year at this event, as we were still to learn about the […]

Of all the people who come to stay with us, Duncan and Kristina’s gastronomic tastes are the closest to our own and we make a point of taking them to places we enjoy – because we know they will too. Dinner by the sea […]

The Boss and I recently celebrated our anniversary and marked the occasion with a stay at the rurally located Son Brull Hotel & Spa, near Pollensa in the north of Mallorca. It was the third time we had stayed here, and each stay has been off-season. One day we will get to swim in their large outdoor pool and relax afterwards on the surrounding terraces with a long cold drink, wearing one of the Son Brull straw hats they […]
