The 3 best gastronomic routes in Mallorca

The 3 best gastronomic routes in Mallorca

Mallorca stands for sea, warm climate, relaxation, inspiration for many artists and especially, for good food. The Mediterranean cuisine is one of the most traditional ones and with a wide range of products, where local and high quality products elaborate the most surprising dishes in the whole island. From traditional cellers hidden in the most picturesque villages of the island, to kitchens with Michelin stars in the most sought-after streets in the cosmopolitan city, today, from Smart Renting Mallorca, we want to offer you the best gastronomic routes in Mallorca.

Tapas Route 

One of the best tapa routes on the island is hidden in the heart of Palma's old town, one of the best known areas of Mallorca. We head to the main streets of the Sa Gerreria quarter to enjoy one of the most popular routes: the Martiana route. If you are looking for good and cheap food, this is the perfect place to taste the best tapas in the city. We recommend visiting the quarter on Tuesday nights as there are many bars which have joined this route offering special prices and times, such as Barfarina, Ca la Seu and L'ambigú. This is without a doubt, the perfect plan to enjoy food in good company.


Majorcan food

Typical food in a rural atmosphere and surrounded by wines, these words define exactly what a celler is in Mallorca.  The food represents the most traditional side of the Mediterranean cuisine, always closely linked to the land and agriculture of the island, in order to produce the island's most exquisite dishes, such as frito mallorquín, arroz brut, or a delicious gató de almendras for dessert. These cellers can be found in any town on the island, where you can immerse yourself in the culture and traditions while enjoying a unique gastronomic experience. Since we know that there is an endless list of cellers throughout the island, we have prepared a list of our recommendations where you can enjoy the Majorcan cuisine:

  • Los Patos, Puerto de Alcudia
  • Celler Ca’n Amer, Inca
  • Celler de Sa Premsa, Palma
  • Celler Can Font, Sineu


Avant-garde cuisine 

As we have already mentioned, Majorca offers something for everyone, even when we are talking about the gastronomical offer. Dishes inspired in the island, with unique creativity that transmit the flavours of the Mallorcan essence and modern elaborations with local and seasonal products, there are many places where you can enjoy the avant-garde cuisine in Mallorca.

There is no doubt that you will find numerous Michelin star restaurants in the island's capital, but the rest of the villages also offer an exquisite selection. In Inca you can enjoy a tasting menu at the Sa Fábrica restaurant, in Alcudia you will find the Jardín restaurant, where you can see the first female chef who won a Michelin star in Mallorca cooking. On the other hand, we recommend you to book at the Clandestí taller Gastronòmic in Palma, an exclusive and intimate place with a maximum capacity of 12 people, while you watch the chefs in action in a modern and elegant atmosphere.
