Tonight in Santiago de Compostela, Michelin announced the restaurants in Spain and Portugal awarded stars for 2016.
Mallorca did well: it still has the same seven restaurants recognised by the famous red book – but Zaranda, at the 5-star Castell Son Claret, has become one of only 23 restaurants in Spain and Portugal to be awarded two stars. Congratulations go to Fernando Pérez Arellano, Claire Hutchings, Itziar Rodriguez, and all the team on this well-deserved accolade.
I was also pleased to see that the following deserving restaurants have again been awarded one star:
Bou (for the 13th consecutive year) – formerly known as Es Molí d’en Bou
Es Racó d’es Teix
I imagine there’ll be a little partying on Mallorca tonight . . .
