At Mallorca, Mediterranean flavors come to you without leaving the country. Located in Pittsburgh’s South Side, the owner Antonio Pereira brings the best Spanish dishes to the city and has for more than 25 years.
The menu is extensive and so is the wine list. For starters, try an appetizer or small plate. Perfect for sharing and getting to know the menu. There are mussels, peppers and onions in a red wine sauce, Portuguese sausage flamed in brandy served tableside or shrimp in a garlic sauce. Tapas are available in the bar only.
There is chicken, beef & veal. Or, wait to hear the specials like the Oxtail or Chilean Sea Bass. All dishes are served with a complimentary salad, rice, vegetables, and potato chips.
Highlights include Pollo Mallorca – chicken breast stuffed with spinach, raisins, pine nuts, fresh tomato, and mozzarella cheese finished in a house-made cream brandy sauce; Ternera Romana – veal cutlets breaded, pan-fried and served in a lemon white wine butter sauce; 8 oz. filet mignon finished in a white pepper cream sauce.
Swordfish, salmon, trout, and monkfish are available under the seafood section. For $43.95 you can order twin 7 oz. lobster tails boiled, stuffed with crabmeat and shrimp, or in a white cream sauce.
Yes, they have Paella three different ways.
Gluten-free and vegan options are marked on the menu.
Save room for dessert. This bread pudding with homemade vanilla bean ice cream (below) was delicious.
What makes this place special is the service and personalities. The service is over the top in a good way, with a team of employees who seem genuinely happy to help you. The owner is fantastic, knows and personally greets patrons. Very much appreciated.
