Enjoy unforgettable moments at the one-Michelin Star restaurant Es Fum and let yourself be captivated by the culinary art of the Chef José Miguel Navarro and his talented brigade. Dine indoors (25 covers) or on the terrace overlooking the gardens, and savour the sunset over the Mediterranean Sea at one of Mallorca’s best restaurants, located on the ground floor of the 5-star St Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort. First awarded a Michelin star in November 2011, Es Fum has retained the star every year since.
Restaurant Es Fum
English, German, Spanish
This seasonal restaurant serves dinner only (Thursday to Monday) and has an intimate ambience and elegant décor, with attractive works of art by Nils Burwitz, and appreciated touches such as small stools on which ladies can place their handbags.
Chef José Miguel and his brigade produce exquisite cuisine for Es Fum’s tasting menus (no à la carte). The menu descriptions of these gastronomic treats include only the key ingredients, so each dish arrives as a surprise. Stand-out dishes we tried in 2017 included a tartar of red prawns with crispy beetroot ‘bread’ and ginger vinaigrette.
The service is slick but and professional from unstuffy, knowledgeable staff, including an excellent sommelier. The extraordinary cuisine and impressive choice of wines – including Mallorcan – are priced to reflect the Michelin star.
