This restaurant has changed hands as the original owner moved to a new – so far, untested – location. Es Castell is now not very highly rated.
Named after the hilltop castle that dominates Capdepera, this attractive restaurant is very popular with foreign and Spanish visitors.
Italian Stefano di Mauro has been at the helm for less than a year, but he and his hardworking team have already achieved TripAdvisor’s top ranking for restaurants in Capdepera.
They offer a three-course menú del día (12,50 €), Mondays-Fridays and, at night, a weekly-changing five-course tasting menu (30 €).
There’s also an à la carte menu, which changes every three-four months, and includes typical Mallorcan cuisine, pa amb oli, tapas, pastas, salads, as well as more creative dishes, such as fillet of seabass with courgette ‘spaghetti’ and cauliflower puree. Portions of the superbly cooked and well-presented food are good, and can be accompanied by a Mallorcan or Spanish wine from the reasonably-priced small list.
