Michelin-starred restaurants in Mallorca
DINS Santi Taura
DINS Santi Taura is located in the emblematic Hotel El Llorenç Parc de la Mar, in the heart of the historic Jewish quarter of Calatrava. This establishment, under the leadership of acclaimed chef Santi Taura, has positioned itself as one of Mallorca’s most coveted Michelin-starred restaurants, where Mallorcan tradition is fused with a contemporary vision.
Santi Taura, known for his passion for rescuing the “historical memory” of Balearic cuisine, presents the “ORIGENS” menu, a tribute to the pure essence of the island. From its interpretation of classic dishes to innovation in every presentation, DINS offers a culinary experience that celebrates Mallorca’s rich gastronomic heritage. With a sophisticated ambience and sea views, this restaurant promises an unforgettable experience for any haute cuisine enthusiast.
Strategically located between Deià and Port de Sóller, Béns d’Avall offers unparalleled views of the southwest coast of Mallorca. This family-run restaurant, which has earned a Michelin Star, has established itself as one of the island’s most prized culinary destinations, masterfully combining the rich Mallorcan gastronomic tradition with innovative techniques.
Under the leadership of chef Benet Vicens and his prodigious son Jaume, Béns d’Avall presents a culinary proposal that highlights products from their own gardens, showing a deep respect for nature and the history of Mallorca. From delicious reinterpretations of classic dishes to avant-garde creations, the restaurant invites diners on a gastronomic journey that enhances the essence of the island. With a terrace offering panoramic views of the Mediterranean, Béns d’Avall guarantees an unrivalled culinary experience for lovers of fine dining.
A niche of culinary excellence in the prestigious Cap Vermell Grand Hotel, VORO stands out not only as the gastronomic retreat of acclaimed chef Álvaro Salazar, but also as the only restaurant in Mallorca with two Michelin Stars. This prestigious recognition speaks for itself, underlining the expertise and passion behind every dish served.
The menu, which varies between eleven and fifteen dishes, is an invitation to a sensory journey, an odyssey of Mediterranean roots presented in a free and avant-garde spirit. Álvaro Salazar’s creativity is palpable in every mouthful, and with the assistance of his expert sommelier, Cecilia, each dish is complemented by the perfect wine. All this, in the setting of one of Mallorca’s five Grand Luxury hotels, ensures that VORO is not just a meal, but an unforgettable gastronomic experience.
The Restaurant Adrián Quetglas in the capital, Palma, is a manifestation of its chef’s rich tapas culture. Born in Buenos Aires with Mallorcan origins, Quetglas brings to the table an exquisite fusion of Mediterranean and Argentinian flavours, seasoned with experiences from his decade in Russia. Every dish, from a deconstructed omelette to an innovative borsch, tells a story, making every meal a narrative experience.
Entering his establishment is like embarking on a culinary journey. With a Michelin star since 2017, the restaurant promises not only haute cuisine, but also a “democratisation” of it, offering affordable tasting menus that reflect its mission to bring quality gastronomy to all. It is a corner in Palma where tradition meets innovation, and where every diner can savour the passion and heritage of Quetglas in every mouthful.
Located in the heart of the luxurious St Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort, the Es Fum restaurant is a true emblem of haute cuisine on the island, proudly holding its Michelin Star since 2011. Under the guidance of renowned chef José Miguel Navarro, the Mallorcan essence is brought to life through innovative dishes that blend tradition and the avant-garde. Navarro, with his vast experience in elite restaurants, brings a unique vision that celebrates the richness of indigenous ingredients and presents a cuisine that delights both the palate and the eye.
The restaurant masterfully combines sophisticated décor with touches of yesteryear, offering a serene and elegant ambience. The terrace, with panoramic views of the Mediterranean, provides a romantic, almost magical setting, ideal for dinners under the stars. Beyond the food, Es Fum promises a complete experience, from the attentive and professional service to the small details that make each visit a lasting memory in the tapas of Mallorca’s culinary memories.
Maca de Castro
Under the direction of the innovative chef Macarena de Castro, better known as “Maca”, stands the prestigious Maca de Castro Restaurant, awarded with a Michelin Star. This culinary space, located on the first floor of an elegant villa, stands out for its modern and avant-garde design. On the ground floor of the same building, we find the Jardín Bistró, a more accessible but equally passionate about authentic Mallorcan gastronomy.
At Maca’s restaurant, diners are treated to a Mediterranean-inspired tasting menu, meticulously prepared with the freshest seasonal produce Mallorca has to offer. Most of the ingredients come directly from the local fish markets, from artisan producers on the island, or from their own vegetable garden in Sa Pobla. As a gesture of welcome and to show their commitment to the land, visitors are presented with a delicate poetic book upon entering, which not only highlights their love for Mallorca, but also details the day’s harvest. Maca’s dedication to sustainability and reforestation is proof of his constant evolution and her passion for preserving the richness of his homeland.
The Marc Fosh Restaurant, located in the heart of Palma de Mallorca, is a culinary gem that blends Mediterranean tradition with a contemporary twist. Under the command of the british chef Marc Fosh, the first chef of his nationality to obtain a Michelin Star in Spain, the restaurant celebrates local ingredients in a historic setting of the Hotel Convent de la Missió, one of our favourite Spa hotels in the capital, with bright spaces and a charming central courtyard.
The essence of Marc Fosh’s cuisine lies in his ability to bring out authentic Mallorcan flavours, presenting dishes that are a feast for the senses. With seasonally changing menus, such as the signature Marc Menu, diners can expect innovative dishes that pay homage to the island’s rich culinary tradition, all complemented by a select Mallorcan wine list and a dedicated team that guarantees an unforgettable experience.
Restaurante Zaranda, since its debut in Madrid’s San Bernardino neighbourhood, has emerged as an emblem of culinary refinement. Despite starting out in Madrid and quickly earning a Michelin Star in his first year, his subsequent move to Mallorca and current location at the wonderful Hotel Es Princep established his reputation as one of Spain’s most prestigious gastronomic destinations.
Under the expert guidance of chef Fernando Pérez Arellano, Zaranda promises more than a simple feast: it is an odyssey of flavours, textures and traditions. With a team of professionals from diverse backgrounds, each dish reflects a passion for diversity and a commitment to excellence. The careful selection of the best local products and the unparalleled creativity of the menu ensure that every visit to Zaranda is a unique and unforgettable experience.
The year 2023 has enthusiastically welcomed the newest addition to Mallorca’s Michelin-starred restaurants: Fusion19. Earning its first Michelin Star earlier this year, Fusion19, located in Muro, distinguishes itself by masterfully combining traditional Mediterranean flavours with international culinary nuances. It is under the direction of renowned chef Martín González that this establishment has managed to captivate locals and travellers alike, establishing itself as an essential stop on the island’s gastronomic route.
Martín González, praised for his intrinsic understanding of Mallorcan cuisine and his innate desire to transcend culinary frontiers, presents his menu “Encuentros”. Throughout, diners are taken on a journey where Mallorca’s gastronomic heritage is intertwined with contemporary touches and exotic influences. Fusion19, with its refined design and spectacular views of the Mediterranean, not only promises an unrivalled dining experience, but also a celebration of what it means to be part of Mallorca’s Michelin-starred restaurants today.
Another Mallorcan restaurant almost Michelin-starred
Many of you may have been surprised not to find Andreu Genestra Restaurant among the award winners, or you may think that our article on Michelin-starred restaurants in Mallorca is out of date.
The renowned Mallorcan chef Andreu Genestra was awarded a Michelin Star at the time, but has now moved his restaurant to the Zoëtry Hotel in Llucmajor. This, according to the Michelin Guide, means that the new location does not automatically retain its previous award, so its new establishment will have to undergo a new evaluation by the Guide’s experts. Thus, we will have to wait until the next Michelin awards ceremony to find out if the restaurant manages to regain the prestigious distinction and re-enter the ranking. We guarantee he deserves it!
