Popular for weddings and other celebrations, this spectacularly located luxury boutique hotel (a member of Relais & Chateaux), is close enough to Palma – around a 25-minute drive – to come here for a special lunch or dinner in the restaurant.
Valldemossa Hotel & Restaurant
English, Spanish, German, French, Russian
The hilltop setting, combined with the light interior décor and good food should make any meal here memorable. Whether you dine indoors or on the romantic terrace, you’ll be drinking in glorious views of the Tramuntana and the Real Cartuja (where Chopin famously stayed). Classic elegance, superior quality and a high appreciation for all things traditional is how one can best describe the setting. This is, after all, a restaurant in which the at-the-time-heir to the Spanish throne, Prince Felipe, and his glamorous wife Princess Letizia ate.
The chef Ricardo Rossi and his brigade offer innovative cuisine and tempting menus, based on fresh seasonal local produce. At lunchtime there’s a bistro menu, including grilled fish of the day, home-made burger, and salad; at night you can dine à la carte.
The restaurant also offers a good children’s menu and in the summer they organize entertaining jazz lunches. DO wines from Mallorca and Spain are on the extensive wine list. The prices reflect the location and its many attributes.
The Valldemossa Restaurant offers top-class food and warm friendly service in an intimate romantic environment, with breathtaking views over the village. One can’t help but think that if the Valldemossa Hotel and Restaurant had existed in the late 1830s, the writer George Sand would have been reminded of the glamour of her life in Paris – and written a very different account of her winter in Mallorca!
