One of the stars of the Palma dining scene, Cuit Restaurant, offers both excellent Mallorcuisine as well as spectacular views across the skyline of the city and should be on everyone´s `To Do´ list when visiting Mallorca.
Located in the Nakar Hotel on Avenida Jaime III, one of the most prestigious streets in Palma, a lift from the reception area takes you to the 8th floor where I guarantee you will be wowed as the lift doors open into this bright and modern restaurant and bar.
Open on one side but sheltered from the elements when the weather is cooler, it is one of the few (if not the only) restaurants in Palma commanding such a fine view of the city.
Then of course there is the food. Chef Miquel Calent, honed his skills in his home town of Campos in the south east of the island where he opened his first restaurant Ca’n Calent, which is renowned island-wide and he has become somewhat of regular on local TV.
But the time had come to offer his cuisine to Mallorca´s capital. Cuit Restaurant´s food is inspired by Mallorcan tradition and is Mediterranean in style – but with a contemporary twist. Much of the produce used in the kitchen is Mallorcan, including the pork from pigs raised by Miquel´s father and vegetables and fruit grown in his own produce gardens.
On the menu you can savour local delicacies such a as `Patates a lo pobre´(`poor man´s´ potatoes) with egg yoke and black truffles, Frito Mallorquin, a rich and comforting dish of meat, potatoes and vegetables chopped small and fried in olive oil.
There is a regularly changing 3 course `Menu of the Day ´which is excellent value at just €21.90.
With a good selection of homemade desserts for the sweet- toothed amongst us (and for those that have room!) you will not be disappointed.
So make sure you book a spot at Cuit Restaurant, at the Nakar Hotel , an oasis high above the hustle and bustle of the streets below.
