Its chef, Tomeu Caldentey, has opened in the same place the restaurant Tomeu Caldentey where he returns to his roots as a cook with a menu proposal at € 50 highly recommended.
Recall that this is just a list, and how all lists each have their own, because “for tastes colors.” For us, a restaurant that should be there, without a doubt, is Dins de Santi Taura, where it offers traditional recipes with its particular style.
2 star Michelin restaurant Zaranda
Located in the 5 star luxury hotel Castell de Son Claret, the Zaranda restaurant is the only restaurant with two Michelin stars in Mallorca. This restaurant opened in 2005 in Madrid, and then moved to Mallorca, and finally settled in Capdella. In 2016 he got his second star.
His philosophy is summarized in this phrase on his website “To be universal, you have to be local.” The chef Fernando Pérez Arellano practices a kitchen with a clear influence of the local product that together with his magnificent technique gives rise to a tasting menu that does not leave you indifferent with dishes such as Majorica oyster, the brunette with crunchy skin, the all i pebre … All this complemented by an excellent wine offer conceived by sommelier Sebastian Longo.

In fact, they have their own garden with a countryman dedicated to providing the restaurant with quality products. Its menu is simply spectacular, with dishes with its own style, concentration of flavor and offering a unique experience. A dish that defines the aforementioned very well, is the dessert of peas on biscuit soaked in amontillado, a 3-star Michelin dish.

In fact, he spent almost 10 years in Russia, with great success, and for 5 years he opened this restaurant, with great Mediterranean and local influence, avant-garde techniques and high quality products. As indicated on its website: its menus are the summary and the essence of the experiences lived by a chef trained in Mallorca, London, Paris and Moscow with some of the best chefs on the international scene.

The Michelin Guide
The Michelin guide is a tourist guide that is published annually with great importance in the world of gastronomy, since it assigns Michelin stars (from one to three) to restaurants that stand out for their quality, creativity and cuisine.
- Three stars indicate an exceptional cuisine that justifies the trip itself.
- Two stars point to first class quality in their type of cuisine.
- A star designates a very good restaurant in its category.
Having one or more Michelin stars means that a restaurant is not only one of the best in the country, but also one of the best in the world. Currently about 2000 restaurants in all countries covered by the guide have stars.
There are a few restaurants that manage to get a Michelin star. They must be maintained year after year. Like any guide, its recommendations are just that, recommendations, which one may or may not share, but which enjoy great relevance and promotion.
