Mallorca has been awarded a total of nine Michelin stars at this year's ceremony for the Spain & Portugal Michelin guide.
The new chefs and restaurants being added this year include:
- Santi Taura for his DINS restaurant within the boutique hotel El Llorenç Parc de la Mar in Palma
- Father and son, Benet and Jaume Vicens of Bens d’Avall restaurant in Deiá
On the Mallorcan Michelin stars list already are:
- Voro, located inside the luxury Park Hyatt hotel in the Canyamel Valley. Voro opened its doors in March 2019 and it only took chef Álvaro Salazar a few months to regain the star that he had in his former restaurant. Traditional Spanish and Mediterranean food, made with local and seasonal produce, are at the heart of Voro's culinary offering.
- Mallorca-born chef Maca de Castro in Port d'Alcudia, offers a modern take on traditional Mallorcan cuisine, whilst paying particular attention to the local suppliers and resources of the island
- Adrián Quetglas, in the centre of Palma, aims to democratise haute cuisine, with market produce and bistro-styling to create a welcoming feel
- Andreu Genestra, near Capdepera, serves up authentic flavours of the island, with traditional recipes revisited by the most modern techniques
- Marc Fosh, housed in the 17th century building that is Hotel Convent de la Missio, creates tasting menus highlighting the best local produce sourced from across the Balearic islands
- Es Racó d'es Teix by Josef Sauerschell in Deia, this family owned restaurant offers classic cuisine in a rustic setting, having been pioneering Mallorca's gourmet scene since 1999
- Es Fum, set in the lush gardens of the St Regis Mardavall Hotel, enjoy modern creative dishes clever combinations of textures, all made from the best locally sourced ingredients
We still have a question mark regarding Zaranda and its two Michelin stars, as the restaurant remains currently closed and, whilst their site has not been updated to say otherwise, they longer feature on the Michelin guide's list.
Alongside these Michelin-starred restaurant culinary highlights, Mallorca continues to be a creative hub for gastronomy and with it's myriad of superb restaurants, and remains a Mediterranean destination of choice for all foodies and lovers of fine local produce. ¡Buen apetito!
