German chef Gerhard Schwaiger has always been associated with haute cuisine. In his early career, in his home country, he worked in restaurants including St Stefanskeller, Katzenbergers Adler, and Tantris.
Schwaiger Xino´s Restaurant
English, Spanish, German
But he became internationally known and respected here on Mallorca, at Tristán, where he spent 29 years and collected culinary accolades like some of us collect recipe books. For two decades his cuisine was awarded two Michelin stars.
Now, Schwaiger has left Puerto Portals for Palma de Mallorca, to have his name over the door of a new restaurant: Schwaiger Xino’s. Located on the second floor of the Son Moix building (above SuperCor supermarket), it has the useful benefit of a free car park across the street and elevator up to the restaurant.
Designer Virginia Pérez has totally transformed the interior, giving it a fresh, light, and contemporary style. Schwaiger has joined forces with Cristina Pérez Paino (formerly of Tristán, who looks after front of house and is the sommelier), innovative young chef Johannes Jobst, and four partners, including Xino’s Pedro Mesquida.
The new restaurant offers Mediterranean cuisine with international touches, and great importance placed on local produce. Schwaiger has reinvented some of his classics and introduced exciting new dishes to his repertoire.
Choose from the à la carte menu or, at night, there’s a set menu (with choice of main course) – four courses for 48,50€, or three for 38,50€.
The à la carte menu includes 13 hot and cold starters (ranging from 7€-20,50€) and ten meat/fish main plates (including a vegetarian dish), ranging from 14,50€-33€).
Fans of Schwaiger’s escalope ‘a la Vienesa’ and rösti potatoes will be happy. The dessert menu includes the renowned chef’s ‘Kaiserschmarrn’ with orange ragout and vanilla ice cream (preparation time of 20 minutes).
Schwaiger has brought with him some of his former colleagues from Tristan, so expect professional service and an interesting list of Mallorcan, national, and international wines to choose from.
We look forward to next summer, when alfresco dining on the terrace will afford views of the Tramuntana mountains behind the city. And of the home of Real Mallorca.
