Cellar Supremsa (Suprema?): "Superb Palma Restaurant missing from your list" Palma de Mallorca Restaurant Tip by CaptainJim

Palma de Mallorca Restaurants: 81 reviews and 83 photos

In the center of Palma about a 15 minute walk from the cathedral is (or used to be) a wonderful local restaurant that had as many - maybe more - locals than tourists. Cellar has a Bodega theme with huge dark wood sherry or wine aging casks embedded in the walls. Tables are basic bench type with typical chequered table cloths. Tapas, other appetizers, and entrees were all reasonably priced and wonderful each time I visited and ate there. Do not, do not, miss the gazpacho - best I've ever had, bar none; and, believe me I've looked, tasted and compared elsewhere. I made it a don't miss stop during the several visits I made to Palma over a 27 year US Navy career with numerous ship visits to this wonderful island. Something for everyone from young teenagers to seniors who remain young at heart. Hope that restaurant is still there - it is a do not miss type.

A safety tip as well - Sadly, last two visits were marred by a purse snatcher-thief in restaurant-bars visited at night. Ladies need to keep thier handbags close by and attached to their persons. Modus Operandi was to take advantage of a distraction - loud band, celebration, etc. and next thing you knew, the purse had gone missing. Local authorities were sympathetic, but could not offer much.

Simply a matter of maintaining situational awareness and being careful in a strange - even if wonderful - place.

Palma was and will always remain one of my favorite places to visit, relax and enjoy the slower pace of Mediterannean life and culture.

All the best for adventure, new places and experiences.

Thanks for a sounding board and hope someone finds this restaurant still open - believe me, you won't be disappointed.
