Charming owners Anna Fiehn (front-of-house) and husband Germán de la Fuente (chef) – who both once worked at L’Hermitage Hotel in Orient – have run their homely restaurant on the edge of Felanitx for 15 years, building a loyal clientele.
Located on a quiet square (easy parking) next to the municipal park, Estragon’s welcoming décor includes agricultural and domestic artefacts, handsome pendulum clock, copper pans, and framed old photographs.
In winter, the log-burning stove provides warmth and a cosy glow. A round table, under the staircase, makes an intimate dining space. Unobtrusive background music and subtle lighting add to the ambience. Seasonal alfresco dining at the front.
Open for lunch and dinner, Estragon offers Mediterranean cuisine: à la carte (changes twice a year) and weekday set lunch menu. Starters include onion soup, and Roquefort, walnut and pear salad. Roast shoulder of lamb and duck are specialities, served with sauté potatoes and decently cooked vegetables.
Main courses all less than 20€ and include fillet of turbot in champagne sauce. Desserts are few but home-made, and Spanish and Mallorca wines are reasonably priced. It’s no wonder people return.
We love…eight wines also available in half bottles.
