Restaurants And Food in the Balearic Islands
The traditional Cuisine of Balearic Islands surprises with a variety of original and sophisticated recipes. It is of course of Mediterranean tradition and has gained a great reputation in all Spain. It is extraordinarily varied – but reflects the cuisine of Catalonia, with its combinations of sweet and savoury. Pork is a main ingredient, and vegetable dishes and soups are also typical fare.
Restaurant hours are quite varied, with the norm being from 1:30 to 3:30pm for lunch and from 8:3′ to 11 or 11:30pm for dinner. In summer, these hours are often expanded, with many establishments offering continuous service and still other serving food into the small hours of the night. Bars are usually open all day and close late at night.
