Argentinian chef Facundo Presentado has owned this cosy restaurant, located by a peaceful viewing point in Valldemossa, for one year.
The charming old building has a couple of tables on the ground floor, in front of the kitchen, and a welcoming wood-burning stove in winter. Other tables are on the mezzanine floor. Simple décor includes Mallorcan landscape paintings, and nightlights and potted plants on the tables. Alfresco dining is at the front of the restaurant and on the small terrace at mezzanine level.
Facundo has worked in top South American restaurants and his fusion cuisine has been influenced by global travels. Along with the tapas and à la carte menu (changes every 2/3 weeks), there are daily market specials.
We tried a delicious starter of sliced scallops carpaccio with Japanese butter, then tender lamb ribs with quinoa couscous and two very good specials. The most expensive dessert was the wickedly indulgent chocolate lasagne with strawberries – sharing recommended.
Portions are good, dish presentation attractive, and service friendly. Mallorcan and Spanish wines are fairly priced, with some available by the glass. Open for lunch and dinner, with reduced opening in winter.
We love…seeing Cabrera from the upper terrace on a clear day.
