The Dins Santi Taura restaurant was recently awarded a Michelin star. The head chef demonstrates his culinary skills and the gastronomic experience with three things: authenticity, perspectives and exclusive ingredients.
Santi Taura has dedicated itself to the study of the origins of Majorcan cuisine and the preservation of traditional recipes. The Michelin distinction is the culmination of his many years of work. “When there is a story surrounding the dish, the guest appreciates it much more”, according to the head chef.
He produces dishes that manifest his passion for old recipes. To the delight of the connoisseurs. Santi Taura does not invent anything and only cooks things that are anchored in gastronomic history. He gets his products from the region and consequently presents his guests with the richness of Majorcan island.
One of the characteristic dishes is “Panada de Peix de roca”, a traditonal rock fish pate, which many consider to be one of the oldest recipes on the island. “Porcella amb Anfós”, another unique dish, fuses the sea and the mountains and uses the finest cuts of pork from Can Company, one of the most esteemed producers of black pork and yellow sea bass on the island. The talented chef opened the DINS in 2016 in an old carpenter’s workshop, offering unparalleled tasting menus. Success was not long in coming and a move to the five star hotel El Llorenç Parc de la Mar was on the agenda. The patron of island cuisine conjures up unique, culinary experiences with his crew.
The El Llorenç Parc de la Mar lies in the heart of La Calatrava, one of the oldest districts in Palma. The modern hotel opened in 2020 and offers 33 exclusive guest rooms and an Infinity Pool on the multi-level rooftop terrace with a cocktail bar. Whether relaxing on the deckchairs in Balinese style or dropping in for a drink, the guests can enjoy the sweeping view of the bay of Palma, the cathedral and the charming rooftops in the old city. The spa facilities offer treatments with the Spanish luxury brand Natura Bissé and an indoor pool.
