Pretty much the standard menu for local restaurants including lamb, pork and cod served in various ways. There are half a dozen tables downstairs which felt over-lit, and a dozen or more upstairs in a more traditional dining room - rustic/utilitarian rather than comfortable. The food was OK - nothing special - and the presentation was mediocre (my plate had... More

Very pleasant helpful staff in this old fashioned feeling (in a good way) restaurant. One dish stood out as an absolute must, the Seared Duck Foie Gras on hot caramelised apple slices. Probably the most tasty thing we have ever eaten anywhere.

Lovely location quite near to the cathedral, authentic Spanish and Catalan food, with genuine, great service. This restaurant has a very traditional design and layout. Not disappointed, had a really nice sirloin steak that melted like a fillet, lots of choices on the menu, very nice waitress. I can recommend this place if you want real authentic Spanish/Catalan food and... More

We ate here on new years eve 2016 into 2017. There were 6 in our party including two fussy teenagers but everyone was delighted with their meal. It was the friendliness of the staff that encouraged us to book when we went in to enquire. They spoke excellent english and were only too happy to help. The service was excellent... More

Intimate ambience, maybe different upstairs but never went there. The meny had several Majorcan dishes highlighted which made us choose three of them. Very tasty and well prepared. Though to us the (sliced) green pepper in the sea food mix came as a surprise, probably not all all for those not as sensitive as us. The staff was attentative which... More

Too many restaurants only offer different types of beef so when we had the chance in El Tunel we tried a Mallorcan speciality which was pork tenderloin with plum sauce etc. It was a perfect experience plus there was plenty of meet. Try it - it makes you feel that you are on Mallorca and not just in any restaurant... More

Quite near to the cathedral and in amongst many competing bars this bar is quite expensive when it comes to some of its tapas in my opinion but good value for money for some of its main plates. Both my partner and went for entrecote and it was cooked beautifully though quite luckily as we were never asked how we... More

Brilliant, authentic Spanish and Catalan food, with genuine and excellent service. It has a very traditional design and layout. Centrally located. We went three times when we usually avoid going back to a place twice. We can't recommend El Tunel enough!
