It is incredible how beautiful Mallorca is in September. The whole island is wrapped in that almost autumnal atmosphere with some still long and warm afternoons. You can enjoy until the last minute walks on these incredible routes in the Sierra de Tramuntana.
The leaves of some trees begin to change color and the occasional rain envelops us with that smell of wet soil. All this invites us to spend long talks in the afternoon with friends. Of course with a good meal in between.
One of the best ways to enjoy the island is undoubtedly the great gastronomic quality of the restaurants in Mallorca. We are incredibly lucky with the variety of places, atmospheres and chefs.
Depending on your taste you will find one type of cuisine or another here and besides the best.
If the other day we were talking about wines of Mallorca, what better than to accompany them with a good meal. There is nothing like sitting on an outdoor terrace enjoying your friends. Also, the best sunsets in the world can be found here and there are several restaurants in Mallorca where you can watch them.
One of the prides of this island is to have one of the best chefs in Spain and the world. Maca de Castro is a Michelin star awarded chef. She has her restaurant of the same name in Puerto de Alcudia and has just opened another one in Palma this summer.
It is called Andana and is her new restaurant in Mallorca. It is located in Plaza de España next to the old train station in Palma. Their dishes are simple and made with the best sustainable ingredients in Mallorca. All Andana‘s raw materials are seasonal from her own garden in Sa Pobla.
In the menu you can find typical dishes such as trempó, cocas, entrepanes, tamboril de cuchara. Her favorite dish is roasted eggplant with tahini sauce. Without doubt it is one of the best restaurants in Mallorca that will make you enjoy a lot
Another of the best restaurants in Mallorca is Béns d’Avall. It is located on the road to Deia near the village of Soller. No doubt you will live a unique experience there.
They have been in Béns d’Avall since 1971 defending the Balearic cuisine in a natural, healthy and very creative way. The chef Benet Vicens and Catalina Cifre welcome you to this magical setting in the middle of the woods in the Sierra de Tramuntana. In the Béns dÄvall you will enjoy some wonderful dishes on its elegant terrace. As I said at the beginning, in Mallorca we enjoy incredible sunsets, the one here is undoubtedly one of the best.
It seems as if the terrace joins the sea and the depth and colors wrap you up in a dreamlike sunset. The tasting menu is tremendous, all based on local products with a brutal creativity and combination.
