10 recommended places to eat in Soller (2023)

The beautiful town of Soller, on the edge of the Serra de Tramuntana, complete with its own narrow-gauge heritage railway and one of the oldest tram systems in the whole of Spain, is a popular tourist destination for those visiting Mallorca. With so much to see and its close proximity to Port de Soller it is no surprise that visitors make a day trip to the area in order to fit everything in. Obviously this will also include lunch or an evening meal so we have tried to provide details of some of the better restaurants available on offer whilst catering for different tastes and pockets.

La Casona Restaurant is located in Soller’s main square at Placa de sa Constitucio 2 next to the town hall and is a popular venue for breakfast, brunch and dinner as well as just a refreshing cold drink or cup of coffee. This family run restaurant serves a classic Mediterranean menu consisting of paellas, pastas, meat and fish dishes and is known for its welcoming and friendly service.

There is an outdoor terrace and the restaurant is wheelchair accessible. Used by locals as well as tourists this is casual dining where children are welcome. Closed on Tuesdays but otherwise open from 8.00am to 11.00pm Monday to Saturday and from 10.00am until 11.00pm on Sundays.

Restaurant Ca’n BoQueta is a mid priced Mediterranean styled gourmet bistro serving creative contemporary and international dishes using local produce. The restaurant is open for lunches and dinners and is closed in the afternoons from 3.00pm until 7.45pm except for Mondays when it is closed all day.

There is a 3 course set lunch menu for €15 which is excellent value and in the evening the restaurant serves a five course tasting menu for €33 or €55 with wine pairing. Again this is excellent value and the food is of an exceptionally high standard. Ideal for romantic or special occasions Ca’n BoQueta is at Gran Via 43 in the centre of Soller and holds a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Apart from weekends Ca’n Pintxo is only open in the evenings from 7.00pm to 11.30pm. On Saturdays and Sundays it opens from 1.00pm to 3.30pm and 7.00pm to 11.30pm. Located at Carrer de la Rectoria 1, Ca’n Pintxo prides itself on its quality and selection of freshly made pintxos. A pintxo can best be described as ‘finger food’ but unlike tapas which is generally based on being smaller portions of larger dishes, pintxo is smaller again and often served skewered with a cocktail stick.

Frequently these cocktail sticks are coloured differently and at the end of the evening the bill is calculated by counting the number and colour of the used sticks. Pintxo means spike or thorn (hence the cocktail sticks) and is normally eaten in bars and can be served cold, at room temperature or hot depending on the ingredients. It’s a fun and very sociable way to enjoy a light snack. Soller’s Ca’n Pintxo uses fresh local ingredients and prepares all its excellent dishes daily. It is a popular venue and worthwhile reserving a table.

Restaurante Luna 36 is a couple of hundred metres from Soller’s main square just up the road from the Art Museum at Carrer de sa Lluna 36. During the season 2017-2018 the restaurant was awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Luna 36 specialises in using fresh local ingredients and serves a mixture of Mediterranean, Spanish and European dishes as well as a separate Tapas menu.

Sometimes on holiday, no matter how good the local fare may be you can feel like a change from your normal menu and hanker after something completely different.

Ca’n Llimona is a tiny restaurant tucked down the narrow side street named Carrer de la Victoria 11 Maig in the heart of Soller, attracting rave reviews for its very limited but exceptionally tasty menu of homemade pasta dishes and beautifully prepared desserts. Small, friendly and welcoming best describes this restaurant which was another recipient of the 2018 TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence award.

Restaurant prices are a little higher than surrounding establishments but generally the food is of a superior standard and well presented.

There is a daily lunchtime menu consisting of salads, pastas, meat and fish dishes or sandwiches and baguettes if you prefer. The fine dining a la carte evening menu which is also served for luncheon during the weekends contains a selection of eight starters, seven pasta and risotto dishes, swordfish, roasted octopus or glazed turbot for fish lovers and veal or lamb for carnivores. This ensures there will be something for all tastes.

The Salvia Restaurant in the heart of Soller at Carrer Palma 18, is set within a 19th century mansion and gardens with a covered dining terrace overlooking the beautiful Serra de Tramuntana. This acclaimed fine dining restaurant serves a la carte lunches and dinners daily from 12.45pm to 2.45 pm and from 6.45 pm to 9.15 pm. The restaurant is closed on Mondays and Thursdays.

The tapas are excellent and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed. Closed on Mondays but otherwise open from 8.30am to 11.00pm Bar Molino serves Mediterranean, Spanish and European dishes. Why not pop in for a quick bite or simply to chill out with a cold beer during the heat of the day?

Serving Mediterranean, European and Spanish dishes in addition to tapas it is simple food cooked well, albeit there is a large choice of dishes which are all reasonably priced, particularly when you consider its location.

The staff are friendly and efficient and the restaurant is open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and after hours service, seven days a week from 9.00am until midnight.
