Puerto Portals has several well known restaurants with Flanigan's being one of them. It has been there since 1987 and has a prime position on the port with fantastic views of the magnificent boats. I had been there before so decided to book this for our first night in Mallorca, we were not disappointed.

We turned up at 8.30pm and despite our reservation having got lost (!), we were shown to a fantastic corner table looking out to sea. The restaurant is big with plenty of staff and has a buzzy atmosphere.

As soon as we sat down we were offered drinks and so ordered a jug of sangria to drink while we studied the menu. The restaurant is famous for it's apple pie which you have to order at the beginning - we didn't indulge but several other tables around us tucked in - it looked yum!

The menu ranges from spanish tapas and local dishes to freshly cooked fish and meats and a variety of sides. We wanted to order about 6 different starters but managed to restrain ourselves to just 3 - a portion of ham iberico, calamari and toasted country bread with tomato (our fave)!

It was all absolutely delicious - typical spanish tapas - my only complaint was I could have done with some tartar sauce or aioli with the calamari - I guess I should have asked but was too busy eating! 

For main course we decided to continue with spanish cuisine and share a black rice paella.

O.M.G. This picture does not do it justice - it was absolutely delicious - we couldn't stop eating it even though we were fit to burst! The rice was cooked to perfection, the squid absolutely tender....we didn't even need a squirt of lemon - it was divine. 

This was all washed down with a lovely bottle of Domaine Ott - the meal was fabulous - (I wish I could have it again now)!
