About Bistro y Restaurante La Pérgola
Located at the quieter end of the popular resort town of Colònia de Sant Jordi, the El Coto is a family-friendly, four-star superior hotel and restaurant positioned overlooking the town’s ancient salt flats.
After many years managing hotels over 20 years ago, Mr and Mrs Navarrete, decided to buy their own in order to realise their vision of an ideal hotel. Part of this vision was to open a ‘wine hotel’, and today boasts an impressive collection of over 400 wines.
Quality Mediterranean cuisine
The hotel’s La Pérgola Restaurant is a destination in its own right. Renowned German chef Gerhard Schwaiger, who previously held two Michelin stars, has acted as culinary consultant here for over four years, and the quality of the food reflects his acclaimed reputation. Only top quality ingredients are used in a menu centred around Mediterranean flavours.
The restaurant is also recommended by the Michelin guide.
Menu highlights include Sirloin of White Veal with Puntalete Risotto, Shrimp Ravioli with Tomato and Basil Sauce, and Marinated Scallops with Chive Cream, Beetroot and Apple. Diners can eat in the smart dining room, on the alfresco terrace poolside or on the terrace looking out to the salt lake. Around a quarter of the cellar’s 400 wines are from the island, ranging from affordable to connoisseur-quality.
The restaurant opens for a breakfast buffet, lunch and the evening dinner à la carte.
