Chameli is the nickname of the founder of our restaurant, derived from the popular name of a small bird like a sparrow in southern Spain.
Times were hard, in 1967, when Antonio arrived at the Port of Palma with a wooden suitcase full of memories of his beloved Andalusia. Being a young man full of dreams, projects and ideas, he fell in love with Mallorca, its people, its climate and its way of life. The island stood out in the tourism boom and Antonio Chameli, nickname he received from his first job in Mallorca, saw it clearly from the beginning. With a trajectory of more than 50 years, a fighter, entrepreneur, innovator and avant-garde has managed to mark a milestone in his adoptive town, Portals Nous.
