Roots. History. Product.

Chef Santi Taura's cooking is about delivering a gastronomic journey through the lens of history, customs, recipes and products, with respect to each and every season. At the same time, it is about discovering Majorcan cuisine from a current point of view, while considering the past and roots of the cuisine.

Many cultures landed on the island leaving an indelible gastronomic trace. Through various records one can see the preferences of ancestors from the Roman Empire, while Arab cookbooks and Christian texts reveal their cooking methods and secrets. This is a rich tapestry of a gastronomic history unlike anywhere else. It is fitting that Chef Santi Taura continues to create a gastronomic journey based on the rich tradition of the neighborhood which is characterized by its inimitable history and architecture of Christian, Jewish and Islamic influences.

Commitment to the Best Products

Surrounded by the sea, land and mountains, Mallorca provides a dazzling array of products, and Santi maintains close relationships with small producers who help create a link between nature and cooking. It further reinforces our idea in support of using organic materials which help link us to the environment, a recipe of product that's best for the environment.

The Beginning

In 2003 Chef Santi Taura had established his restaurant in the heart of Lloseta and then in 2010 he moved to the former home of his grandmother. It was an unlikely village to find such extraordinary cuisine, but the restaurant has been consistently named as of the island’s top restaurants and it has one of the longest waiting lists in all of Spain. Sixteen years later, he is relocating his restaurant to the heart of Palma’s historic center he will continue to create an exceptional cuisine based on the islands traditional recipes and local products.
