On a beautifully warm Thursday night in June, the Ca n’Eduardo team threw open its doors to welcome the great and good of Palma. The red carpet was rolled out and we were prepared to be entertained. The champagne was free flowing, the laughter loud and the music even louder.
It was a wonderful testament to the history and reputation of the restaurant to see so many people come out to celebrate it reaching three quarters of a century. The restaurant, which has been a constant presence on the site since the Paseo and all of its elements began to be developed, was taken over by Gabrielle and Toni in 2008, and they were soon joined by Johnny as head chef in 2009. The team have worked hard to renovate and modernise the space and the result is a large restaurant with a cosy feel, and views and food to die for.
The party was a raging success, enjoyed by hundreds of people, with live music, a dj, an enormous five tier birthday cake and a fully stocked bar of champagne, wine and beers. The restaurant’s specialty is fresh fish and seafood, bought directly from the fish market below, in addition to paellas, stews and rice dishes, and a selection of these were offered up tp the discerning crowd of foodies, disappearing in a blink of an eye. Especially good were the fresh oysters and ceviche which had people crowding round for a taste. No one was leaving this party hungry.
The terrace really came into its own that evening, with stunning views over the bay as guests soaked up the last warm rays of the day. As the sun went down the music went up and the dancing started. Old friends and new coming together to celebrate a true Palma institution. We took a moment to reflect and then raised a glass in a toast to 75 more golden years.
