Eating out while on your holiday is a big part of its appeal. You are, after all, taking a holiday from the mundane things in life. A couple of weeks in which you don’t have to worry about cooking, or indeed the dreaded washing-up, is one of the many pleasant bonuses of being away. While many people opt to get all-inclusive deals these days, it’s still worth going out of your way at least once or twice to enjoy something a little extra special.
We’ve taken a look at some of the best rated and highest ranked restaurants in Majorca and come up with this guide to some of the tastiest eateries on the gorgeous Spanish island. So, in no particular order, here are our recommendations for fine-dining while on holiday:
Head chef and founder, Joan Marc has had his cooking described as ‘alchemy’, so you should expect something quite impressive. The restaurant offers a range of four course meals at a reasonable 30 euros per head and pretty much every meal looks like a work of art. Many of the specialist dishes are seafood based, such as the herb crusted baked cod with creamed spinach – just one of many dishes that has gained this place rave reviews.
Heading towards the lavish and expensive side, this restaurant is the work of Mark Fosh, a British chef and can be found in the busy capital city of Majorca, Palma. A thoroughly stylish and classy place, expect to be surrounded by the city’s A-list tourists as you browse the most elaborate menu on the island.
Serving dishes such as Foie Gras, duck terrine and spiced quince puree, you know you are eating at a real world-class restaurant. The desserts on offer are truly something else. Why buy an ice-cream cone at the beach when you could have a caramelised pineapple or ginger lasagne with coconut sorbet instead? As mentioned, this is on the expensive side, but if you want to eat out in style, this is the place to go.
A far more traditional option, this restaurant in run by the Solivellas Sisters and has a focus on organic food – much of which is grown on site. Offering traditional dishes and a tasting menu of no less than six courses, it’s a great place to get a real taste of the authentic cuisine of the island. The six course taster offers two starters, one fish dish and one meat dish followed by dessert, all in keeping with a traditional Majorcan meal.
We are back to the high-end again with another world-class restaurant owned by Gerhard Schwaiger. The restaurant offers stunning views across the Mediterranean Sea as well as offering a diverse and highly regarded menu. This is another of the island’s more top-scale businesses, so expect to pay a fairly high price. But for style, comfort and amazing cuisine there are few better. Why not treat yourself to an unforgettable meal?
