Eating Vegan In: Majorca [Palmanova and Palma De Mallorca]

Depending on where you go, eating vegan food abroad can be tricky. Unfortunately, not all places cater for vegans, and this can be due to a lack of demand for vegan options; we are all aware that in some places veganism is not as prominent as a movement. However, over the last few years, there has been a rapid shift in the number of people transitioning to the lifestyle which is a great sign that times are changing, and maybe one day it will be easy to eat vegan everywhere you go!

Unfortunately, at this point in time, the area surrounding Palmanova, Majorca, is not a majorly vegan-friendly area. In the 9 days that I stayed there I did manage to find some places where I could eat. Thankfully, the city Palma De Mallorca is only a 30-40 minute bus ride from the resort and offers loads more places for vegans to eat.

Eating Vegan In: Max Garden Restaurant

After an hour of walking around on the seafront looking for somewhere that catered to vegans and having no luck, a kind lady who worked at one of the steakhouses we passed directed us to this cute little restaurant called Max Garden. It turned out to be only a 10-minute walk from our hotel, and we ate there repeatedly over our trip.

Max Garden is not exclusively vegan as it does sell meat and fish dishes too. However, they will ensure that if you are vegan, you receive 100% animal-free food. I have to say, I did not find or eat at any restaurant that was exclusively vegan.

The first meal I ordered from Max Garden was the ‘Vegetable Wok’, which was a bowl of rice and mixed vegetables. These vegetables consisted of peppers, mushrooms, bean sprouts, broccoli, carrots, and onions. I ordered this meal twice over my holiday. The second time I ordered it, it was spicier than the first. This could be due to different chefs making the recipe slightly different.

On one of the days, I decided to order something different and settled on tapas. I had two dishes, the Vegetable Gyoza, and the Sweet Potato Chips. Both of these were delicious, but I would recommend only ordering tapas if you’re not too hungry, as I thought that the portions were small even for one person.

I also have to say that the customer service here is amazing! The waitresses always recognised Tom and I when we returned and would ask how our holiday was going and give us lovely compliments. They also even made me a fruit salad special when there were no vegan desserts on the menu!

Eating Vegan In: Florida Cafe

Florida Cafe is also based in Palmanova and was less than a 10-minute walk from our hotel. Again, this is not an exclusively vegan restaurant. In fact, the menu is predominantly meat and fish dishes. There are a couple of vegetarian options, and from what I can remember, the Vegetable Spaghetti was the only vegan option on the menu.

Although the meal was tasty, I felt that adding some more salt and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil made all the difference. I don’t believe that the meal was made fresh either, but honestly, I was just grateful that I could actually eat a vegan meal in a restaurant in Palmanova!

The staff here were also very kind and helpful. The meals came quickly and the staff made sure that my meal contained no animal products.

Eating Vegan In: Bagel

We visited Bagel for brunch when we were out on our day trip to Palma De Mallorca, and I was not disappointed! Inside it was so Instagram-worthy, and the food was to die for. I ordered the ‘Big Breakfast Croissant’, which was a huge croissant stuffed with vegan cheese, avocado, onion, rocket, and beetroot.

Bagel is exclusively vegetarian and vegan, so you won’t find any meat or fish here! Like all of the other restaurants on this list, the staff were so kind and helpful, and they were so easy to have a conversation with. I definitely recommend going to this restaurant for breakfast/brunch if you visit or stay in Palma.

Eating Vegan In: La Nueva Burguesa

This restaurant in Palma was probably my favourite of the whole holiday, and I’m so sad that I was only able to go once! If you are staying in or visiting Palma, I highly recommend that you eat here at least once. As you can probably tell by the name of the restaurant, it is a burger place. It’s not exclusively vegan – the menu is small but has 2 different vegan options, as well as one extra vegetarian option. The rest of the items on the menu contain some type of meat.

La Nueva Burguesa is a fairly new place, and as far as I could tell was less than a year old. Despite its newness, the place was truly packed within an hour, to the point where the staff had to tell new customers to come back later when there may be more seats!

Everything – literally everything – at La Nueva Burguesa was made fresh and from scratch, even the tomato ketchup was freshly made on site. My boyfriend, Tom, wanted me to specifically mention the ketchup as he said he has never tasted better ketchup, and I have to agree. We would probably have bought a bottle of the stuff if they sold it!

I bought the ‘Ana’ burger (first pictures), and Tom bought the ‘Andrea’ burger (second picture), which were both the vegan options on the menu. The ‘Ana’ burger was made with sauteéd vegetables, falafel, and green pesto, whereas the ‘Andrea’ burger was made with ‘ecological’ seitan, sauteéd Asian vegetables, wasabi mayonnaise, and homemade barbeque sauce. We each tried each other’s burger and agreed that they were both delicious.
