Ports have always been places of longing and wanderlust. Suculenta, the new restaurant on the marina of Port de Sóller, is located directly on the pier where the yachts and fishing boats are moored. You can hardly be any closer to the sea. And Suculenta’s cuisine combines the best of Mediterranean sea and garden.
The succulent dishes created by chef Javier Bermudo stand out for the freshness and quality of their ingredients. We started our meal with a simple plate of tomatoes, garnished with capers, onions, olive oil and salt. Tomatoes from the waiter’s own garden nearby, grown with plenty of sun, and tasting heavenly. The grilled turbot needed nothing but a dash of chili pepper, some fried garlic and a light sauce of lime and herbs. And the lemon semifreddo was the essence of countless summer days by the sea.
As much as I love the cool interior design of Suculenta for me the best place is on the terrace. With its views over the bay of Sóller it is worth a visit alone. If you rather feel like a drink, check Suculenta’s rooftop bar. While the masts of the sailboats are slightly swaying in the wind you can watch the Tramuntana mountaintops glowing in the light of the setting sun.
