Whether you’re moored in the harbour or simply craving a gourmet shoreside dinner, Palma de Mallorca offers an extraordinary culinary landscape that’s as luxurious as it is diverse. From Michelin-star dining experiences to chic waterside eateries, here’s a guide to Palma’s most delicious and elegant culinary havens.
Situated on the Moll Vell marina, Mar de Nudos offers stunning views and a chic ambience. Boasting two kitchens—one dedicated to Japanese cuisine and another to Italian—the restaurant is a treat for the senses. Be sure to try their exquisite sushi and truffle pasta. It’s an ideal choice for families and groups seeking an elegant but relaxed atmosphere.
For Michelin-starred elegance, head to Zaranda. Relocated to Palma’s Hotel Es Princep, this two-star Michelin restaurant offers a balanced blend of professionalism and charm. Expect modern takes on traditional Spanish dishes, like oysters with pickled pearls, horseradish, and caviar. It’s sophistication without pretension.
Nestled in a quaint alley in central Palma, Fera is a fusion of Mediterranean and Asian cuisines. Head chef Simon Petutschnig’s tasting menu is a symphony of textures and flavours. For a quicker dining experience before a night on the town, opt for the à la carte menu.
Romance blooms at Periplo Portixol, especially during sunset. For a more laid-back atmosphere, its sister restaurant in the Born, La Bodeguilla serves upscale tapas. Both provide ideal settings for a lovely evening out.
Tucked away in the city’s old town, Forn is a labyrinth of vibrant rooms and bold art. The restaurant elevates traditional tapas to an art form—think ceviche of sea bass and langoustines with coconut foam. For after-dinner cocktails, head to the nearby bar Abaco
For a trendier vibe, visit Spot in the hip district of Santa Catalina. Its eclectic menu features everything from truffle pizza and beef tacos to Asian-inspired dishes like tuna sashimi tortillas. The space itself is Instagram-worthy, punctuated by hot pink sofas and oversized palm trees.
Offering an intimate dining experience, El Camino is a no-reservations tapas bar where chefs and waiters work opposite diners. The locally sourced sharing dishes and daily specials are an authentic culinary delight, complemented by a fine selection of Mallorcan wines.
Experience renowned chef Martín Berasategui’s culinary prowess in this trendy locale. The menu is a mouthwatering selection of tapas and elaborate dishes, with the scallop and prawn roll being a must-try.
Former Nobu chef Bernabé Caravotta’s Vandal takes you on a culinary globe-trot with its inventive small plates. Highlights include smoked whisky sour oysters and Patagonian squid with squid-ink sand.
So, when the sea calls you back to your yacht, make sure you’ve relished Palma’s extravagant culinary scene—a perfect pairing to your luxurious maritime adventure with the Mallorca Marine Group.
