The new Park Hyatt Mallorca offers an elegant yet understated and social dining experience, treating guests to world-class cuisine, award winning chefs and restaurants that are unlike any other on the island. In keeping with the hotel’s design as a traditional Mallorcan hilltop village, all restaurants and bars are placed around the convivial village square, Plaza de la Torre, which becomes a bustling centre in the evenings for guests to explore.
Headed up by German-born Executive Chef, Felix Petrucco, who has worked in a number of Hyatt hotels since 2001 including the Park Hyatt Vienna, the new hotel boasts four exquisite restaurants where guests can expect European modern classics that reinvent local island dishes. The restaurants Balearic, Tapas Bar, Asia, and Café sa Plaça showcase Petrucco’s passion for using local produce and organic ingredients, from the natural honey at breakfast to the freshly barbecued pork and seafood, as much as possible is sourced on the island of Mallorca.
Breaking out of the typical ‘hotel restaurant’ mould, Park Hyatt Mallorca has created four exceptional dining venues, each with its own identity, that are already attracting visitors from all over the island. In keeping with the brand’s ethos of understated luxury, at Park Hyatt Mallorca the dining focus is very much on guests being able to enjoy delicious local dishes together with family and friends. Set against the stunning backdrop of the surrounding Canyamel Valley, Park Hyatt Mallorca brings together the perfect elements in stylish surroundings, to make this a truly memorable dining experience for guests to remember.
Offering a quintessential Mallorcan all day dining experience, Balearic is the culinary heart of the hotel where guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here, traditional gastronomy is rooted in the strong culinary values of the region, where dining is a social affair. Led by Executive Sous Chef, Manuel Pereira, in a large, open kitchen, Balearic offers Mediterranean cuisine with dishes such as paella, fresh local meat and fish, and barbecues. Made using only the freshest ingredients, much of the food is sourced from neighbouring farms and fishing ports, with a focus on all things local. Diners at Balearic can also enjoy local beer on draught and an extensive wine selection with many Mallorcan labels, all explained and recommended by the expert restaurant staff.
With a menu created by Michelin star Spanish chef, David García, previously head of F&B at the Guggenheim Bilbao for eight years, the Tapas Bar offers a sociable, lively dining experience and international atmosphere. Mouth-watering traditional cuisine meets modern on this impressive menu of small dishes, emphasising the quality and freshness of produce found in Spain. Sample dishes include tuna tartare, scallops abanica and the finest selections of local jamón, chorizo and cheese.
A wood fired oven and live cooking area take centre stage at this venue, around which lucky diners can sit and take in the show, whilst a lively cocktail bar with international mixologists, a large outdoor terrace and a fireplace create a cosy, comfortable and intimate ambience in which guests of Park Hyatt Mallorca can relax after a hard day by the pool, or exploring the island. With signature cocktails such as the Mallorca Mule to choose from, the resident cocktail bar is the perfect place to start an evening of celebrations. Guests can then move through to take a seat next to a floating bodega (wine cellar) featuring many rare and exclusive labels, and fridges filled with delicious local cheeses and meats.
Open for dinner only, Asia is an exquisitely designed private villa with a beautiful veranda with lovely views over the valley. Unlike any other restaurant on the island, Asia is proud to play host to Vietnamese chef Kim Pham as well as alternating resident chefs from southeast Asia, and offers a menu inspired by the cuisine of China, India, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia. The focus here is on sharing delicious Asian food and tasting plates with friends. Dishes are flavoursome and exciting, with visiting chefs occasionally lending an authentic touch to the current menu. The intimate restaurant features stunning interiors and exudes the genial atmosphere of dining at a well-travelled friend’s house.
Café sa Plaça
‘The village café’, Café sa Plaça, sits on the central square of the hotel village and serves delicious pastries and light meals throughout the day. The team at Park Hyatt spent six months sourcing the very best Mallorcan produce for its fabulous in-house bakery and guests are in for a treat! Whether purchasing a mid-morning freshly prepared cake or pastry, or picking up some locally produced olive oil or wine, Café sa Plaça’s shelves and cabinets are stylishly adorned with Mallorcan specialties. The large wooden, communal table at the heart of the café lends itself perfectly to a laidback dinner or relaxing coffee, whilst the terrace is the perfect place to sit back with a newspaper and watch the world go by.
Café sa Plaça is working with multi-award winning pastry chef and chocolatier, Oriol Balaguer, to create the very best croissants, pastries and handmade chocolates. Chocoholics take note – the café even features a special chocolate room where you can indulge in the sweet stuff to your heart’s content!
A relaxed and informal spot for those seeking shade and refreshment from the Mallorcan sunshine, Poolside offers a selection of simple, healthy bites, including fresh salads and paninis, handmade burgers, seasonal juice blends and smoothies. The ideal option for those looking for a lighter food option without having to miss out on prime sunbathing time.
Park Hyatt Mallorca is passionate about using only the freshest, seasonal ingredients. Chef Petrucco ensures that this is espoused in every single restaurant and bar offering at the hotel, allowing guests to indulge in delicious dishes and relaxing atmospheres that are at the heart of a Mallorcan living experience.
