Hotel Cort’s restaurant is a must-visit on Palma’s iconic square, Plaça Cort. In the heart of the city’s old town, the area is rich in history and culture. Just off the Paseo Borne and close to the best of Palma´s famous sights, the location is one of the prettiest in the Gothic city.
Lázaro Rosa-Violán – the renowned Barcelona designer behind the city’s Tast Club – created the stylish interior here, with its attractive tiled floors, black-and-white wall tiles, wooden panels, some curved banquette seating and ceilings of Mallorcan blue-and-white ‘cloth of tongues’.
Hotel Cort is owned by Ramón Andreu (Tast Group) and the Swedish owners of Hotel Tres (La Lonja). The hotel is sophisticated and cosmopolitan, and its restaurant is a classic brasserie serving international cuisine. Whether you want a café con leche with Eggs Benedict or a glass of cava and tapas, they serve meals and snacks throughout the day.
The terrace of the restaurant spills out into the cobblestone plaza, and it is a wonderful place to dine al fresco and people watch over the summer months. Plaça Cort is famous for the enormous olive tree – the Cort Olive – that serves as a landmark and a symbol of the island’s heritage.
Head chef José Rodriguez and his brigade create the dishes for their menu of Mediterranean cuisine, mixed with international flavours and dishes – particularly in their Raw Bar which offers oysters, tartares and ceviches.
There are salads, snacks (some offered in two sizes), pastas, and meat and fish dishes. The complimentary appetizer (ours was crab salad on toast) makes a promising start. Well-presented dishes we enjoyed included oregano-dressed baked goat’s cheese on roasted tomatoes with black olives.
There are Mallorcan, Spanish and international wines. Service is slick and friendly and led by food and beverage manager Nuria Casas. Recommendations include sharing a few dishes (so you can try more) and reserving a table in advance.
We love… going with friends so we can share several dishes.
