Regardless of whether you’re a casual diner or the ultimate foodie, you’re bound to find something to meet your tastes and budget in Majorca. With restaurants galore (more than 5,000 in total), the island is a food-lover's paradise, and while not every eatery can be rated as high-quality, there are plenty of great value places to satisfy you during your stay. Mediterranean countries have long been renowned for their emphasis on fresh, high quality produce, and Majorca is no exception. With delicious, locally caught seafood making a show in the staple dishes, you’re in for a real treat. Traditional Majorcan cuisine is always tasty, and has been referred to as ‘peasant food’ due to its simplicity. Popular breakfast dishes include Emsaimada, a coiled sweet pastry that dates back to the 17th century and has a light and flaky texture. The pastry is sometimes filled with fruit or, as a savoury option, with sobrassada sausage - another local speciality.
