BAIBEN | Restaurant | Portals Nous | Tel. +34 971 675 547
In 2016, the only two-star chef on the island, Fernando Pérez Arellano (Restaurant Zaranda Son Claret) opened his restaurant Baiben which used to be the former exclusive restaurant Tristan, which features an outdoor area, and the Baiben bar. With coloured glass and bronze elements, an ambience was created that combines minimalistic charm with Art Deco elements. Arellano has thus created an atmosphere that also explains its kitchen concept, namely Mediterranean cuisine with Latin American and Asian elements. In addition to sensational tapas, there are homemade pasta, seafood and meat specialities – all with Arellano’s signature. With a selection of 700 (!) wines.
SPOON | Restaurant | Portals Nous | Tel. +34 971 677 225
SPOON restaurant is a popular meeting place for yacht owners and for an international, but predominantly German audience. The menu is varied and offers delicacies from pasta dishes, Sushi and Asian dishes to Mediterranean and Northern European highlights. From the starters I can recommend salmon tartar with cucumber carpaccio and the rocket salad with king prawns. For the main courses, Spoon can score with the bison filet with roasted potatoes, fresh fish dishes and the always popular Wiener Schnitzel with its famous potato salad. A good selection of wines and a low key, but excellent friendly service, always make an evening at the Spoon restaurant an unforgettable experience.

FLANIGAN | Restaurant | Portals Nous | Tel. +34 971 679 191
For 30 years now, FLANIGAN in Puerto Portals has been a prime location for sophisticated Mediterranean cuisine, in short: a classic. For the small appetite the Flanigan hamburger or the Steak Tatar are very popular as well as tapas, gambas, chipirones, fish & chips, ham and pasta dishes. Regular guests particularly recommend the fresh fish at market prices in a variety of preparations, e.g. sea bass baked in salt. Flanigan is also well known for its apple strudel with ice cream, which is baked especially for the guest and should be ordered when ordering the main course because of the preparation time of 30 minutes. From the inviting terrace you can enjoy a beautiful view of the harbour.
