Four-star superior Hotel El Coto’s restaurant is well known among gourmets – particularly German and Swiss. Located at the quieter end of Colonia de Sant Jordi, near the salt pans, the hotel has been owned and run by the Navarrete family for 21 years. With a bodega of some 400 different Spanish wines (200 Mallorcan), it’s known as ‘the wine hotel’.

The restaurant is at the back of the hotel, facing the swimming pool, garden, and attractive partially covered al fresco bar. Eat in the smart dining room or outside, by the pool. At night the terrace loungers are removed and well-placed soft lighting creates a beautiful romantic ambience. Gala dinners – with live music – are regular fixtures and open to the public. There are separate à la carte lunch and dinner menus. The latter includes the option of a visit to the buffet salad bar to start your meal, and a selection of meats and fish cooked on the outdoor grill.
Dishes we tried included: a cold starter of tuna tartar with ponzu mayonnaise and watercress salad; stuffed Mallorcan quail with celery mousse and port wine sauce; veal Cordon Bleu with home-made French fries; bavaroise of coconut with sauteed pineapple and chocolate crocant, and cocoa biscuit with dark chocolate cream and white chocolate mousse.
Renowned German chef Gerhard Schwaiger acts as culinary consultant here – an indication of the high-level of cuisine and presentation. Servers are amiable, helpful, and swiftly efficient, and overseen by José Navarette – whose encyclopaedic knowledge of wines can be called upon to assist in your choice. The astonishing wine list offers bottles ranging from easily affordable to connoisseur-level prices.
We love…the Navarrete family’s passion and professionalism.
