A veritable feast of foodie activities, wine encounters, and recommended restaurants reveals why Mallorca has gained a reputation as a great gastronomic destination. Our menu of gourmet goodies awaits you …
Mallorca’s burgeoning gastronomic scene has its heart in the cosmopolitan capital, Palma, which has seen an explosion in new eateries and exciting culinary concepts during 2017. The city named the best place to live in the world by ‘The Sunday Times’ has become a gourmet paradise. Three distinct areas of Palma are hotspots for dining out: the bohemian Santa Catalina (with a vibrant indoor market at its centre), the narrow lanes of La Lonja, and old fishing village of Portixol. But other parts of the city also have plenty to offer.
Some of our favourites include: Nuru, Duke, Naan, and Basmati, all in Santa Catalina. Local cuisine from Adrián Quetglas, Aromata and Casa Maruka. Fusion from Canela and Mar de Nudos. Quadrat at the five-star Sant Francesc Hotel Singular, and De Tokio a Lima at Can Alomar. Chez Camille and Forn de Sant Joan in La Lonja. Italian fans will love – Sandro.
Your guide to the best restaurants in Palma for 2017, including new openings, a Michelin-starred restaurant, and a variety of cuisines. […] Best Restaurants in Palma
Mallorca’s southwest is home to some of the most popular tourist destinations, with a wide variety of resorts along the coast offering an abundance of restaurants – with something for every budget and taste. For a helping of maritime magnificence as you eat, head for the jet-set favourite, Puerto Portals, or the swanky superyacht marina of Port Adriano – both these eating-out hotspots offer a host of restaurants with views of gleaming motorboats and yachts. Port d’Andratx – despite having plenty of restaurants – has surprisingly few that actually stand out.
Michelin-starred dining can be enjoyed at the famed Es Fum, discreetly located within a 5-star resort hotel, while a luxurious country house hotel near the inland village of Es Capdellà is home to the outstanding Zaranda. Arrels by Marga Coll is located in the 5-star Gran Meliá del Mar Hotel and offers a Mallorcan breakfast menu which consists of 5 different stages and, at night, a 7-course tasting menu. One of the most popular restaurants in the upmarket Puerto Portals marina is Ritzi which serves consistently good and Mediterranean cuisine.
The popular region of the southwest stretches from Palma to the west coast, encompassing glamorous hotspots & family holiday resorts offering great cuisine! […] Best Restaurants in the Southwest of Mallorca
This region has some stand-out restaurants offering a more authentic Mallorcan culinary experience for anyone venturing away from Palma and the coast. We recommend combining a meal atone of them with an excursion to discover the culture and traditions of Mallorca’s rural towns and villages. Much of the cuisine can be described as ‘new Mallorcan’ – individual modern interpretations of old recipes for dishes that the chefs’ mothers and grandmothers would have prepared in their own kitchens. The fertile land of the heart of Mallorca yields a rich bounty of produce, used creatively by some younger male and female chefs who have made a name for themselves on the island’s gastronomic scene.
Some of our favourites include: Santi Taura in Lloseta, Moli des Torrent close to Santa Maria, Bistro 19 by Livingdreams in Santa Maria, and newly opened last year Maria Salinas Restaurant in Mancor del Vall.
The centre of the island offers an authentic local food experience in small traditional restaurants in picturesque towns like Santa Marià, Lloseta and Selva. You’ll find some of the most talented chefs here. […] Best Restaurants in Central Mallorca
This region encompasses the beautiful Sóller valley, dramatic peaks and rugged coastline of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Serra de Tramuntana, and Mallorca’s popular northern resorts. Here you’ll find hotel restaurants open to the public and boasting some of Mallorca’s most spectacular panoramas. The area boasts two Michelin stars Es Racó des Teix and Jardín in Alcúdia. Port de Pollença now has a restaurant with a standard of gastronomy previously lacking here: Argos, in La Goleta Hotel de Mar, which was awarded with a Michelin Star for 2017. In the heart of Sóller, Luna 36 has a chef who trained in San Sebastian. The waterfront Sa Barca is offering a gourmet alternative to the many average establishments in Port de Sóller.
Some of our favourites include: Bens D’Avall and Agapanto both with spectacular seafront locations, Michelin star Es Racó des Teix and Restaurant Sebastian both in Deià, Sa Barca in Port de Soller and Cap Roig at five star Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa. Insider’s tips – La Celtika and Argos both in Port de Pollença.
This region offers hotel restaurants open to the public, lovely eateries at the beach and others in the beautiful mountains. Have a look at our guide! […] Best Restaurants in the Northwest of Mallorca
This region includes the resorts of Portocristo, Cala Murada, Portocolom, Cala d’Or, and Colònia de Sant Jordi. The south is particularly popular with German and Swiss residents and holidaymakers, which is reflected in the above-average number of German-owned restaurants. The market towns of Campos and Santanyí are found here.
Some of our favourites include: Es Pinaret – a hidden gem in the south, Sa Sal, Roland and Quince all feature in the resort town of Portocristo. Local cuisine at Sal de Cocó and the restaurant at El Coto Hotel in Colonia de Sant Jordi are certainly noteworthy.
The southeast of Mallorca is strongly influenced by its large German population, including many of the best restaurants. Es Pinaret, Sa Sal and Roland take their place amongst the best eateries on the island. […] Best Restaurants in Southeast Mallorca
The northeastern region of Mallorca offers a small but surprising variety of good restaurants, of which two hold a Michelin star – Bou and Andreu Genestra. You’ll find restaurants in and around the attractive hilltop towns of Artà and Capdepera, and hotels in coastal and inland locations offering fine food to diners who are not necessarily staying overnight there. The new 5-star Park Hyatt Mallorca includes a good restaurant; in addition it will increase interest in this often underrated but beautiful area of the island.
Some of our favourites include: Michelin star Bou and Andreu Genestra, waterfront located Vintage 1934 and Can Simoneta.
The north & east coast of the island is less known but offers an understated charm, with off-the-beaten-track restaurants, sure to create lasting memories […] Best Restaurants in the Northeast Mallorca
