Opened in 2011, Trespais has its name because the chef Domenico Curcio is half-Italian and half-German, while Jenny Terlers – front of house – is Austrian.
There’s a great mix of warm Austrian hospitality with strong culinary influences from the three countries. Although it isn’t on the seafront Trespais does have an attractive courtyard garden for alfresco dining. They serve dinner only and close Mondays.
The cuisine is mainly Mediterranean with some discreet Asian touches and some typical German dishes also available. The menu changes every 2-3 months and offers several different meat and fish options as well as starters and seasonal specialities.
How would you describe your cuisine (what style)?
My style of cuisine is seasonal – it´s European-Mediterranean with an Asian touch.
What are you hoping your clients feel when eating your food?
I hope they will remember the special tastes in a way that they cannot wait to eat the dish again.
What do you think makes a restaurant successful?
The best product quality, good service and a nice atmosphere.
What is your personal favorite dish to eat?
A good pizza with buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil, and great olive oil. I can have that for breakfast, lunch and dinner – I grew up in my father´s pizzeria.
TripAdvisor: friend or foe, and why?
It´s a love-hate relationship. I think TripAdvisor has to work on its rating methods, I don´t really understand how it works.
How do you try to achieve work/life balance?
That´s near to impossible with a baby of 19 months old.
What are your thoughts about the restaurant scene on Mallorca?
The quality is much better than ten years ago; now there is much more variety and different types of cuisine. The quality in general in the restaurants has gone up.
