Respected chef Jens Krumbiegel works his culinary magic once again this year in the heart of Port d’Andratx at Restaurant Urbano. Here, the chef has kept loyal patrons’ favourites on the menu, while expanding the concept each season, to become a beacon in the area’s gastronomical scene. Front of house is managed by Jens’ elegant wife Manuela Aichinger, who is also the sommelier. Her carefully-chosen list includes interesting wines from Spain and Mallorca.
The décor is classic fine dining; white tablecloths, candles and fresh flowers on tables that are intimate. A wonderful covered terrace provides much needed shade in the summer when the sun doesn´t set until late, and sea breezes blowing in from the Mediterranean are refreshing.
The service is knowledgeable and professional, ask Manuela to suggest a wine pairing for your main course! Jens and Manuela have honed their skills working together at their former establishment, the much beloved favourite, El Patio, before opening Restaurant Urbano. Their synchronicity and the seamless service in the front of house make for a relaxed and homely experience.
A memorable starter is the imaginative metre of tapas starter for two. The marinated pork belly with smoked sardines and cucumber hit all the expected flavor notes – it was delectable. Main courses of braised Iberico cheeks with beetroot duo and Dover Sole with nut butter and saffron vegetables, are original in flavor, craft and concept. Colourful and artfully plated, the use of technique is exceptional. Due to the restaurant’s proximity to the fishing port, the seafood on the menu is bountiful and fresh. Desserts are exquisite in presentation and a divine ending to an epicurean journey.
One of the better restaurants in Port d’Andratx, Restaurant Urbano is ideal for occasion dining, as much as when seeking a culinary experience. It’s also a wonderful place for groups or landmark occasions. The location near the water allows you the luxury of a stroll in the port before dinner for a glass of chilled cava as the sun goes down at one of the busy cafes, or a nightcap after your delicious meal.
