Mallorca (Majorca) menú del Dia Restaurants

Mallorca Food and Restaurants - Menú del Dia

Eating out on Mallorca is generally cheap. But if you want to grab a real bargain check out the low price "menú del Dia" that is often available in Mallorquin cafe's and restaurants.

Invented during Franco's rule as a nutritious, fixed price way for the workers of Spain to get a decent meal, the Menú del Dia is generally advertised outside the restaurant on a chalk board. The menú del dia is a three course meal, with wine and water included in the price.

Mallorca Food - Menú del DiaYou will general be offered a choice of food but this choice can vary from two to three dishes at smaller establishments all the way up to ten or more if you are really lucky enough to stumble upon a more popular place.

The menú often consists of soup, salad or a small portion of paella to start, followed by a simple meat or fish dish, with potatos, for the main course. The wine offered will always be a cheap red table wine, and the pudding will include Spanish flan, ice cream or fruit. The Menú del dia is generally served in Mallorca from Monday to Friday between 1pm and 4pm.

Some places serve a menú del dia on a saturday but be warned as these places tend to be slightly more expensive but offer a greater choice of dishes.

Celler Sa Premsa is like walking back in time, it feels like Spain in the 50s. Originally a wine press the huge oak barrels still line the back wall. The rest of the walls are covered with old bull fighting posters. Unusually for a menu del dia there is a large choice of dishes for each of the three courses. Wine (3/8 of a bottle for each person) and lemonade (gaseosa) come with the meal. The choice and portion size are good. Great value for money.
