We went for lunch on Sunday. We chose the paella for two. The food was amazing and the service was very friendly but a bit slow. We definitely would return to try other dishes.

Excellent seafood here at Es Mercat. Tried the chipporones, sashimi style fish and also the shrimp quesadilla, all were extremely tasty, fresh and had clean distinctive flavours. The service was very friendly and the waiter very engaging. The menu of both seafood and meat was...More
