About Salicornia Restaurant
On the frontline in Mallorca‘s lovely seaside Colònia de Sant Jordi, Salicornia Restaurant offers contemporary Mediterranean ambience with a menu of classic Mallorcan cuisine. Colònia de Sant Jordi in the municipality of Ses Salinas is in the south of Mallorca, and the fishing-village-turned-coastal-resort has been famous for its salt flats since the Bronze Age.
Today, swathes of white sand beach in front of Salicornia Restaurant offer a perfect locale for lounging in the sun before wandering into the dining room for a cocktail and a leisurely Spanish lunch…with sand still between your toes.
Salicornia’s interior is turquoise blue and white beach-shack chic; cosy rattan chairs with shibori and llengues textiles are where you settle under collections of coral and glass lanterns. The decidedly casual eatery serves a menu of Mallorcan specialities with a sophisticated palate. For starters, they serve the local lunchtime favourite of coca de trampo – a pizza-style base topped with peppers onions and anchovies – alongside brandadilla of bacalao with cauliflower pickle and smoked paprika, or tuna tartar with egg and salicornia.
For meat enthusiasts, there is a steak tartar with Paris coffee butter and suckling beef tenderloin. Salicornia specialises in Spanish classics such as arroz brut and fideus, with succulent langoustines and mixed seafood options.
Cocktail bar Salicornia and roof terrace The TOP
After 12 noon, Salicornia’s terrace becomes a buzzing social scene of locals and tourists as it transforms into a cocktail lounge serving Salicornia sours, margaritas and mojitos.
Also in the evenings after 7pm, the hotel’s rooftop terrace The TOP opens and is a perfect destination for watching the sunset over the glittering Mediterranean sea, imbibing in a chilled copa de cava aperitif, and drinking in the incredible view. Live music is often a draw.
