Delicious & Gluten Free in Mallorca

I'm not being a very good food blogger here...


When I went to Mallorca I took only a couple of food photos and I forgot to note down the names of most of the restaurants we ate in, whoops. I don't know why I didn't take any photos of the food; its really unlike me! I'm usually always snapping away. 


I do, however, remember the name of one restaurant which was 100% gluten free, St Lorenzo Tapas. So if you ever find yourself in Palma de Mallorca, it is the place to go.


It is a traditional tapas restaurant and all the dishes are 100% gluten free and lactose free. As well as tapas they have gluten free pizzas and paella. The food was delicious and it was the first time I tried Padron Peppers, so good!




We also went to a restaurant near Port Calanova where we had gluten free pizza & Sangria, I can't remember the name though. I had actually nearly fainted earlier that day due to the heat which I think is why I can't remember that much of that evening. Lesson learned, always drink plenty of water!!


I hadn't been to the Balearic Islands before and it completely exceeded my expectations. I have been to many places in the Mediterranean but the water in Mallorca was the most amazing shade of deep blue I have ever seen, and crystal clear. 


We stayed in Illetes, which is a small upmarket resort just down the coast from Palma. It was so beautiful and I loved how you could jump straight off the rocks into the sea (above), so fun.


One of my favourite things was wandering around Palma after dinner at St Lorenzo. We looked at the stunning Cathedral of Santa Maria. The architecture is amazing the photo below doesn't really do it justice!


I would love to go back to Mallorca and also visit some of the other Balearic Islands.
