Guide to Luxury Eating Around Majorca
|January 22, 2014||Posted by under Places|
One of the best things about going on holiday is eating out and sampling the finest local delicacies. You and your partner are both free from cooking duties and, if you like, can be waited on hand and foot at first-class restaurants every night.
If you’re booking flights to Majorca (which you can do by clicking here), then a spot of research will show you that you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to fine dining on the island.
The number of Michelin stars in Majorca is impressive, with top chefs serving up everything from traditional paella dishes to experimental creations. The best luxury eating establishments include:
Es Moli den Bou
This Sa Coma restaurant was awarded a Michelin star in 2004 for its outstanding ability to breathe life into simple, authentic Spanish recipes and give them a modern twist. The philosophy of chef Tomeu Caldentey, who has run the show since the place opened in 2000, is to deliver culinary art based on tradition.
Enjoy the perfect blend of subtle and robust flavours, a visual delight with every course and fantastic service. If you’re holidaying with a large group of friends, then you should consider reserving the Chef’s Table, which seats up to eight people.
Try the tasting menu with paired wines for the gastronomic experience of a lifetime, but don’t expect to be able to get up from your seat any time soon after eating. The restaurant is open every night bar Sunday and Monday.
Situated at the five-star Sheraton Mallorca Arabella Golf Hotel in Son Vida, this restaurant is a must-visit for foodies who value original creations based on rustic, wholesome ingredients and truly appreciate the beauty of Mediterranean cuisine.
Plat d’Or received a Michelin star for seven consecutive years and is not just celebrated for its wonderful food – it also offers glorious views over the hotel golf course and has been recently redecorated to reflect the luxury of its menu. Like Es Moli den Bou, Plat d’Or is closed on Sunday and Monday nights.
You won’t regret ordering one of the many classic dishes on offer, including the pumpkin and wild mushroom risotto and fettucini with bolognese sauce, or choosing from the restaurant’s extensive tapas selection.
This eatery is located in the large port town of Puerto Alcudia in north-east Majorca, and received its Michelin star just last year. Head chef Macarena de Castro – the first woman to be awarded the hallmark on the island – has worked all over the world and is an expert in getting the best out of classic, strong Spanish flavours.
Expect to be wowed by the extensive wine list and sumptuous dishes, which you can enjoy whilst sat outside in the gorgeous gardens. The beauty of de Castro’s recipes lies in the underestimated cuts of meat she uses and traditional products that have been given new lease of life.
Restaurante Jardin – which is open Wednesday to Sunday – is committed to innovation and creativity, and consequently the food it serves up changes fortnightly. To get a real feel of the cuisine here, try the tasting menu, which features dishes including snails, wild mushrooms, sea bass and lamb shoulder.
