The Palma tourism board – Palma 365 – has unveiled its new gastro tourism strategy, and it is looking very tasty indeed.
The Balearic Island capital is continuing to strengthen its position as a fantastic, year-round city break destination. It’s new campaign, Passion for Palma, is continuing to encourage and drive urban tourism, focusing on culture, gastronomy, shopping and sports.
On the gastronomic-side of things, there have been some fantastic innovations and developments, including:
- New ‘Buy and Cook’ restaurant Mercat de l’Olivar – the restaurant offers a one-of-a-kind dining experiences that allows visitors to bring fresh fish and other locally-sourced ingredients from the market to the restaurant, where the chef will prefer a delicious meal.
- Vandal, Santa Catalina – the trendy barrio of Santa Catalina has welcomed a fine-dining restaurant which serves food from around the globe, combining flavours from Asia and South America.
- Fulla d’Ostra moves from Barcelona to Palma – after several years of having a restaurant in Barcelona, Claudio Gutmann and Hector Marcelo have opened a restaurant which combines an intimate space with a bistro style offering from an a la carte menu. The food is a fusion of international cuisine with Mediterranean flavours, brining a whole new dining experience to the city.
- Katagi Blau – an Asian restaurant has recently opened above the streets of El Arenal on the top floor of the five-star Hotel Llaut Palace. The Asian-inspired dishes, such mixed sushi rolls and sashimi, are created with locally-sources Mediterranean ingredients and paired with an uninterrupted view across the bay of Palma from the rooftop.
For food-lovers, this is a great place to visit with everything from fine-dining experiences to traditional tapas bars. For more information on what to do, see and, most importantly, eat in Palma, visit: www.visitpalma.com/en
