About Oleum Restaurant
With its name taken from the Latin for oil, Oleum is the main restaurant of the luxury Son Net Hotel, and alludes to the huge 17th-century olive press that still inhabits its wonderful dining room. The menu is haute Mallorcan-Mediterranean cuisine, where traditional cooking is given innovative twists with creative flair.
The five-star hotel the restaurant occupies is perched on the crest of a hill, with the majestic backdrop of the Tramuntana sierra and overlooking the small village of Puigpunyent in the island’s northwest.
Food and drink
Chef Sergio Olmedo and his team create a menu that integrates traditional Mallorcan cooking with flavours from all over the Mediterranean, with a real focus on local ingredients. Their philosophy is based on using the best locally grown products as much as they can, some even from their own organic vegetable garden. Other house products include their own olive oil, wine grown from the surrounding vineyards, and even beer.
Meal options include four- or seven-course tasting menus, with or without wine pairing, or guests can simply choose from the à la carte menu. Highlights include Beetroot Carpaccio to start, and Seabass in Salt Crust is one of their signature main courses. To finish Salted Caramel Eclair is always a popular choice.

The choice of dining settings include the large inside dining room, which despite its size still manages to maintain a romantic and intimate ambience, with its tall stone walls and candle-lit tables. Alternatively, during warmer months diners can enjoy their meal alfresco, on the outside terrace and accompanied by wonderful views over the picturesque surrounds.
Also, for a genuinely unique dining experience, the hotel offers a treehouse in which guests can enjoy a private meal in an elevated setting.
