- Mallorca is one of the finest restaurants in Pittsburgh. The cuisine is typically ethnic Spanish and Portuguese, but they offer a wide variety of other choices. The service is very European with a team of attentive waiters responding to your every need. – USAtouristcom, Trip Advisor

Channeling the sights and smells of an Ibiza villa, Mallorca Restaurant posts a tuxedoed gentleman at the door to greet guests with continental flair. Owner and host Antonio Pereira outfits the upscale restaurant's four dining rooms with eye-catching adornments of carved archways, frescoed ceilings, and chandeliers that hang low enough to fix ailing hairstyles. Natural light floods into the dining room through decorated skylights, illuminating linen-topped tables buttressed by original Spanish recipes. Fresh seafood and generously portioned beef dishes have inspired the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to label Mallorca "one of Pittsburgh's most popular restaurants," and its rich, saffron-scented paella captured the eye and taste buds of Pittsburgh Tribune-Review writer Pamela Starr.
