Salicornia Restaurant Mallorca
Salicornia Restaurant is located on the seafront and you can dine outside with views of the harbor or in their beautiful indoor space. This is where you can enjoy a free breakfast buffet too.
For lunch and dinner, you can order delicious meals featuring fresh local fish or paella. During my stay, I tried a variety of dishes and everything I had was so good. Not only that, the presentation of the dishes was superior. Everything was locally sourced and the cocktails were also very good.
Some of my favorite things I tried was Fideuà, which is a traditional Spanish dish similar to paella. However, it is made with toasted noodles called fideos, cooked in a flavorful broth with seafood, vegetables, and spices. I also really enjoyed the clams and the fresh fish that was presented in a giant fish on wheels (like the picture below) which the chef opened up and served.
The TOP is located on the rooftop of Hotel Honucai. In the daytime, it is perfect for lounging by the pool and at night the area turns into an amazing vibe where you can enjoy fruity cocktails, dine out for dinner, and even listen to live performances. The food features a selection of raw oysters or Majorcan-style robata (Japanese grill).
