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.

Mallorca's first steakhouse Editors' Note

The history of Sa Farinera is intimately linked to the history of nineteenth-century Mallorca: a clear example of the transformation suffered by the island and its society due to the tourist boom in the 1960s. Originally a mill, the family business was eventually transformed into a restaurant.

Sa Farinera’s mill wheels became tables, the machinery was integrated in the interior decor of the restaurant, as a reminder of the past. And yet, there was something new, unique to look forward to: the first steakhouse of Mallorca.

Since 1962, Sa Farinera lives up to its pioneering roots, and continues to be one of the best places for meat lovers on the island.
