Eating  typically traditional in Palma at La Cueva

One thing to remember when embarking on a dinner mission in Spain - 'Most restaurants don't open before 8'. Freaken heck though, most westerner's don't like to eat after 8. It can be a tad bit of an adjustment. Seeing as how I am programmed to have dinner quite early in the evening, I always [...]
