The beautiful Balearics

Mallorca and Menorca have long been popular with tourists, but if you think it’s just bucket ‘n’ spade delights, think again. Mallorca’s capital, Palma de Mallorca, has a fascinating history, and the island’s varied landscape includes rugged mountains and a rural interior little-touched by tourism. Boutique hotels, delicious paella, and peaceful villages show there’s much more than the islands' beaches. The likes of Magaluf still supply cheap thrills, but in quiet corners of Menorca or Mallorca’s Tramuntana mountains, it all seems ages away.

This restaurant is located in the trendy, beachside setting of Portixol. At Can Punta, the talented Ronny Portulidis uses many Greek influences and ingredients to create a light cuisine with bold flavours. The restaurant offers affordable menus for lunch and dinner with a delicious brunch on Sundays where I’m told, you can get eggs cooked just the way you like them.

A great location, and the food is delicious. A fusion of Greek, Mediterranean, and local flavors.

A Palma seafront favourite Editors' Note

There are several seafood restaurants on the coast road beyond Portitxol in Palma but if you’re here out of season then Can Punta is slightly more sheltered when the wind is blowing off the sea.

The interior of Can Punta is bright and contemporary, although this restaurant has been a local favourite since 1925. Mallorcan pa amb oli and other light tapas dishes feature, but you can also enjoy something more substantial like juicy steaks or wok-fried langoustines with asparagus.
