Opened in April 2017, East 26 is the vision of local real estate queen Lucie Haurie who has spent more than 40 years promoting the high-quality of life enjoyed in the south-east of Mallorca.

East 26 is Lucie’s passion project together with her two partners and construction team, who reformed the building over a four year period to create a Mediterranean lifestyle space for art, décor, food and real estate under one roof.
Peppo (Josef) Mayer is an experienced Viennese restaurateur – who is well-known in his Austrian homeland. “We want to offer our guests a charming crossover of Mediterranean and Asian cuisine,” says the chef.
Peppo and his wife Melanie are delighted with the early success of East 26 having been fully booked most nights throughout the season. Their eatery is fast becoming ‘the meeting point in Santanyí,’ for both foreigners and locals.
Open all day; you can relax over a hearty breakfast, taste local tapas, or try light snacks or the daily changing lunch menu, as well as coffee and cake served in the afternoon. In the beautiful garden behind the inner courtyard, the Mayers also organize private events on request.
We sampled two starters – the red tuna tartar with avocado and wasabi mayonnaise and the exotic street food marinated raw fish dish Poke Bowie made of tuna and salmon a specialty from Hawaii which comes in two sizes – I would recommend the small if you have a main course. We shared the fish of the day – sea bass cooked in the Josper grill served over potatoes and artichokes. Leave space for dessert because the apple strudel is perhaps the best on Mallorca.
We love the philosophy of the restaurant – fresh products prepared with love, to enjoy in a beautiful environment with friends. See soon you at East 26!
