Michelin Guide Spain has announced its new list of restaurants and two new Michelin stars go to two local Mallorcan chefs bringing the total to nine on the island. A first Green Star for the island was also awarded to local chef Andreu Genestra for the sustainable operation of his restaurant at Hotel Predi Son Jaumell in Capdepera.
The past ten years or so has brought about big changes as the island’s gastronomy scene has completely turned around with more local chefs achieving this high level and promoting the fabulous local produce with style.
The new Michelin stars were awarded to local Mallorcan chefs, Santi Taura for his DINS
restaurant within the boutique hotel El Llorenç Parc de la Mar in Palma, and to father and son,
Benet and Jaume Vicens of Bens d’Avall restaurant in Soller/Deia.

Marc Fosh, long term Michelin star chef who was first awarded a Michelin star 18 years ago said; “When I first won a Michelin star in 2002 I was one of several foreign chefs on the island with a Michelin star,
now local Mallorcan chefs are really coming to the fore bringing their own island flair and
producing amazing food with local produce”.
