Places To Eat in Porto Cristo
So you’re wandering the beautiful streets of Porto Cristo, breathing in the fresh sea air and admiring the beautiful landscape. Your tummy starts to rumble and you’re on the hunt for one of the best restaurants in Porto Cristo. Well look no further!
Quince is a restaurant I go back to time and time again. Not only does it have arguably the best view of the marina in Porto Cristo but it serves delicious food as well. If you’re looking to eat like the locals with fresh seafood, pasta and paella then you’ve come to the right place. The waiting staff are also probably the friendliest people in the whole of Mallorca. Year after year I revisit this restaurant and no matter who serves us we always receive a warm and personal experience. The staff tell us about the food and the process of making their own apricot liqueur (and how they get the apricots inside the bottles after much debate between my friend and I). They make jokes and are more than happy to let us practice our Spanish.
The restaurant does get busy so it’s worth calling ahead and booking a table. Oh and order the mussels, they are to die for!
Vibes is another great restaurant in Porto Cristo but I do have a confession to make. It’s actually owned by the same people who own Quince. The reason we stumbled across Vibes is because we tried to get a table in Quince and they were fully booked all evening. But the waiter was helpful enough to call ahead to Vibes and ask if they had a spare table. He booked one for us and we walked on over, for an equally delicious meal, may I add.
The menu is similar but there are a few more options available at Vibes outside of the traditional Spanish cuisine. One of my favourites is the nachos with homemade guacamole but the seafood linguine is great too.
Fussio Lounge has a really great atmosphere right on the waterfront. Sometimes they have live music playing and the decor is very modern and stylish. So if you’re after somewhere with a bit going on, you should definitely check this one out.
Food is also great but I would strongly recommend going for something rustic like a pizza or a grilled fish. I can also claim the cocktails are fantastic. You know those strawberry daiquiris that have the consistency of a slush puppy? Honestly, they’re amazing.
Es Nautico is another great location if you’re after live music and a bit of atmosphere. When we last went there was a great duo doing covers of Ed Sheeran and John Mayer.
The food options are both traditional and yummy. The menu is typical of a Spanish street-side restaurant so from fish to meat, pasta and paella, they do it all. Even if you’re just after a drink they bring round little bowls of sweets and nuts, which is a lovely touch. Watch out though, the long island iced teas are strong!
