Located within the 5-star Iberostar Playa de Palma Hotel, Marea is set in a cosy contemporary designer space, inspired by the light and intensity of the Mediterranean.
Marea is open for lunch and dinner, serving cuisine based on unique Mediterranean flavours, intended to delight even the most discerning palates.
The emphasis is on quality, with premium meats from Bodega El Capricho, the freshest of fish, and other produce sourced locally.
Wines are Spanish, including a few Mallorcan labels and some carefully selected reds to pair with the premium meats.
In addition, Sundays offer the perfect plan: a brunch from 11:30 hrs – 15:30 hrs, with the option of eating out on the terrace. Guests choose between a full cold buffet and hot dishes made fresh to order.
In addition to the à la carte menu, there are two 5-course tasting menus: Mar y Tierra Menu and the luxurious Capricho Menu, which includes a roast ox dish followed by an El Capricho premium ox T-bone steak.
Marea is the only restaurant on Mallorca offering meats from Bodega El Capricho – renowned as supplier of ‘the world’s best meat’.
The beef cow is of the Limousin breed, weighing in at between 600 and 800 kilos when they are slaughtered. The premium ox meat is of the Minhota breed, which can achieve a weight of 1,500 kilos, and they produce what are considered the world’s best T-bone steaks.
Both breeds graze freely in fields of thyme, lavender, and holm oak, eating vast amounts of food and drinking as much as 100 litres of water a day.
Example à la carte dishes:
Home-made ham, prawn, and wild mushroom croquettes
Potato and ‘butiffara’ sausage bombs with rouille sauce
Seed, sprouts, tender leaf, and dried fruit and nut salad
Matured Premium Ox T-bone steak
Roasted octopus with caramelized tomatoes, green leaves, and seeds
Red tuna with ‘tumbet’
Crispy caramelized suckling pork with roasted peppers
Chocolate mousse with walnuts and raspberry coulis
Marea is one of two restaurants located within the 5-star Iberostar Playa de Palma, which enjoys extensive sea and bay views from its front-line position on Calle Marbella. The luxury hotel was totally renovated in 2016.
