About Cor, Barra i Taula
Cor, Barra i Taula puts a modern spin on the traditional Mallorcan restaurant. It’s located in central Palma, close to the bustling fresh food market, Mercat de l’Olivar. The restaurant has a large bar area, as well as tables, where diners can enjoy an informal breakfast, lunch or dinner from Monday through to Saturday. Tapas, typical Mallorcan dishes, and local sandwiches known as ‘llonguets’, are the focus of the menu. Drinks include coffees, vermouths and wines.
Chef Santi Taura is well known across the island for his fidelity to local produce and innovative cooking style.
His Lloseta-based restaurant, which he ran under his own name, was awarded a Bib Gourmand by Michelin for ‘best quality-price relationship’ in 2017.
Such was its popularity that there was a waiting list of over six months. Restaurant Santi Taura has since closed, and Restaurants Dins located in the boutique hotel El Llorenç Parc de la Mar, and Cor Barra i Taula, are the talented chefs two new creative outlets. Cor, Barra i Taula literally means ‘heart, bar and table’, summing up the unwavering passion which Santi Taura feels for great gastronomy.
Anchovy and olive skewers, stuffed red peppers, Gillardeau oysters and cured cheese are some of the upmarket bar snacks available to pair with a cold beer or glass of wine. Alternatively, the full tapas portions are ideal for sharing. Traditional Spanish and Mallorcan favourites such as garlic mushrooms, stewed meatballs and spicy snails are featured on the menu. There are also sandwiches made with the typical crusty bread rolls of the island. The most popular is the ‘llonguet Cubano’, which is filled with succulent grilled pork. Local and seasonal ingredients influence the menu and consequently the availability of the dishes.
