Thanks to Mallorca’s family friendly appeal you’ll find it’s very easy to eat out with kids here, as Mallorquins love to make a fuss of them! The island’s 300 days of sunshine per year mean most restaurants have outdoor eating spaces, gardens and even play areas for the kids, so you needn’t worry about them causing chaos trailing around a posh restaurant.
Diners can enjoy excellent value for money in terms of quality of food – adults can feast on local delicacies like octopus, suckling pig and snails, whilst children’s menus often feature simple dishes like grilled chicken and pasta. The local appetiser you will find in almost all restaurants is pa amb oli (bread with olive oil , tomatoes and cold cuts of meat), a great filler for hungry tummies.
BabyBreaks has researched the best child-friendly restaurants in Mallorca so you can plan your mealtimes with ease.
