I have already become a bit slack about updating this blog. Recently my fiancé and I went on holiday to Mallorca and while I took several photos of our meals I have been very slow actually writing about them!
Anyway we stayed at the gorgeous hotel Melia de Mar in Illetas http://www.melia.com/hotels/spain/majorca/melia-de-mar/index.html
I would definitely recommend it, right on the sea, adults only (such a bonus!), modern, fabulous views, fantastic service & incredible breakfasts!
As soon as we had arrived & unpacked, we headed straight for a late lunch at the Gabi Lounge and Bar and sat on the terrace over looking the sparkling blue sea. The menu offered the usual fare of typical Spanish cuisine/tapas and then salads, burgers, sandwiches etc and there was a similar restaurant below called Le Pool (not surprising this was by the pool)!
For once we did not want to over eat as we were going out for supper a few hours later. We started with one of our favourite tapas dishes – pan con tomate y jamon.
It was slightly different to ones we had before as you spooned the tomato on the bread itself & the bread was pretty crunchy but it was all delicious – sweet tomatoes, plenty of garlic and olive oil, topped off with a bit of salt plus there was an abundance of ham.
We followed this with a wagu duluxe burger with caramalised onions for Pascal (he had already started before I took the photo!) and a prawn Caesar salad for me.
They were both very enjoyable but not the best we’ve ever had. The view and the setting certainly made up for it though and we knew we would be back for several more meals over the next week.
