Concierge.com's insider take:
Few places offer a more charming, convivial way to spend an evening than with the Pan y Vino's hosts, Terry and Jill Cox. Back in London, he was a session musician, she ran nightclubs; and their island restaurant is one of those rare places where customers arrive as strangers and leave as friends. Tucked down an impossibly narrow, stone-walled lane about 20 minutes from Maó, the rustic dining room has a secret-garden feel. Jill's eclectic and accomplished home cooking spans the continents, and dinner tends to be whatever she feels like cooking that day. Dishes range from Pacific-style ceviche to local goat cheese with gooseberry sauce to Asian street food. Terry takes charge front of house, doling out welcome glasses of cava to a jolly crowd of loyal regulars and in-the-know newcomers. Past clients include Elton John and his mother, among other illustrious rock 'n' rollers.
Closed Thursdays and Fridays and from October through May.
