El Bungalow, by the beach in Palma's Ciudad Jardín, is another long-established restaurant that is threatened by a Costas Authority order. Famous for its paella and popular with both residents and tourists, El Bungalow has been operating with a restaurant licence since 1983. A family business, Maleni Bonet explains that her great-grandfather originally bought what was a bungalow in 1943. It was a wedding present for her grandmother, and it was her mother, María Pinya, who obtained the licence 39 years ago.

environmentalist organisation GOB THIS establishment NEEDS to keep it’s GOB firmly shut and concentrate in counting the rubbish and grains of sand on Es Trenc beach along with the turds in the sand dunes behind following it’s involvement in driving chiringitos along with their facilities and subsequent tourists off THAT beach to the detriment of Euro Income from people who enjoy visits to the beach environment. Have visited El Bungalow several times over tha last 15 years or so. It’s a quality restaurant next to the sea and similar to plenty along the coast. Attracts customers, keeps business viable, staff employed and taxes paid. El Bungalow is in keeping with other buildings within the vicinity, is not offensive by any means. NOW , Ms Aregeddon, do the job you are paid to do. Support the business which attract Euro income and subsequent taxes and tell these environmentalists to go pick up damp posidonia with tweezers and deposit it on agricultural fields as fertiliser or even add to that fertiliser with the effluent that comes out of the environmentalists gobs
WHY IS IT BEING CLOSED? My suspicion is the Councils or Authorities are not getting a slice of their money, or income. Classic Autocratic Greed!!!. So close it down.
The Costa Nostra seeks to strike again! Two of my favorite beach shacks are already gone, destroyed by an unfathomably stupid group of people who have NEVER had a grain of sand on flip-flops desperately searching, in the hot sun, for a sandwich and a beer. Their entire existence is to orbit a map of these islands and make squiggly lines and X's on shores they've never ever touched. They must be, indeed, miserable people.
