Simply Fosh

Hotel Convent de la Missió, La Missió 7

Based in the upscale Hotel Convent de la Missió, this restaurant – home of acclaimed British chef Marc Fosh – was awarded a Michelin star in 2014. The seasonal menu offers Mediterranean cuisine crafted from the finest locally-sourced ingredients. The set lunch menu is incredibly light on the wallet and is the perfect tantalising glimpse of what to expect from the dinner service. Reservations are essential.

Es Molí d’en Bou

Protur Sa Coma Hotel, Calle Liles, Sa Coma

Although the rural charm of its original windmill setting has been lost, the decision by Tomeu Caldentey – another Michelin-starred chef – to move his restaurant to more refined surroundings is in keeping with the calibre of food on offer. Renowned for a highly creative approach to Majorcan cuisine notable for its innovative combinations of taste and texture, this one is definitely worth a visit. Once again, reservations are essential.

Lua

Calle Santa Caterina d’Alexandría 1, Puerto de Sóller

Whilst the food at Lua is obviously of a very high standard, of particular attraction here is the restaurant’s location. Positioned as it is in Port de Sóller, diners are afforded views of the picturesque harbour which contribute to an incredibly pleasant eating experience. With a menu comprising grilled locally-caught fish paired with a variety of exciting sauces, reservations are strongly advised to guarantee a place on that scenic terrace.

El Celler

Calle Hospital 46, Petra

Although this list primarily references fine dining restaurants, it would be remiss not to acknowledge that an equally enjoyable meal – and all-round dining experience, really – can also be had at one of the island’s many exceptionalceller restaurants. These establishments, popular in the island’s smaller towns and villages, are housed in converted wine or oil cellars with menus built around highlighting traditional Majorcan dishes, and El Celler is amongst the best of them. There are no reservations, and weekends tend to be busy with locals.

Buen Provecho!

These include crème caramel or gato de almendras which is an almond cake that is traditionally served with ice cream made from toasted almonds. Ensaimadas are another popular desert choice and are also often served for breakfast. They are pastries made in a spiral shape which are dusted with sugar and which can be filled with a variety of fillings such as jam or even sausage depending on when you are eating them.
