Cooking has always been more than pure craftsmanship. Since we also eat with the eyes great chefs are not only cooks but also creative artists. At Adrian Quetglas the negrito with greens already looked like a small sculpture and the desert, chocolate con pasión, reminded me of a modern art painting. The taste is no less delicious while the location states Adrian Quetglas’ vision to democratize haute cuisine.
Born in Buenos Aires with Mallorcan roots, Adrian Quetglas has been working with renowned chefs like Marc Fosh in London, Paris, Moscow and on Mallorca. His culinary handwriting reflects his experience with fine international cuisine and his passion for the Mediterranean. His efforts were promptly rewarded with the coveted Michelin star for two years in a row, now.
Other than most of the prestigious restaurants on Mallorca Adrian Quetglas chose a place at the very center of Palma. If the weather permits, you can sit outside on the wide arcaded sidewalk even at this time of the year.
I came with friends from France to celebrate our reunion and we relished every single course of the menu. Even though the price is moderate given the extraordinary quality, for an ordinary dinner I would recommend Burger Lab, an offshoot of Adrian Quetglas on Palma’s most beautiful boulevard El Born.
