Do you enjoy Sunday brunch? It’s the perfect meal for those occasions when you’ve woken up too late to face your usual breakfast, but can’t wait until lunchtime to eat a proper meal.

That wasn’t the case when we went to the St Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort last weekend. It was simply that the 5-star hotel in the southwest of Mallorca had launched a Sunday brunch – open to all – and we wanted to try it.

The hotel has two restaurants: the Michelin-starred Es Fum and main restaurant Aqua. The new Sunday brunch is offered in Aqua, which was stylishly renovated over the winter. This spacious restaurant has plenty of natural light, and offers great views over the gardens and grounds, down to the glinting Mediterranean at the far end of the property. In warmer weather, eat alfresco on the large terrace.

What’s on offer?


Brunch is buffet style, and there was a generous choice of local and international dishes to tempt us – including half-lobsters in the shell, oysters, choice of roast meats, fish dishes, salads, vegetables, and a lot more. We ran out of hunger to do justice to the large selection of desserts and cheeses, so plan to return on another Sunday.

Smooth jazz was the music for the first event.

For the first brunch, smooth live jazz (with a good singer) added to the informal ambience; different genres of music will be offered each Sunday. Check the hotel’s Facebook page for details of the music at the next brunch.

One of the things we like about this hotel is that, although it’s undeniably luxurious, service is professional and courteous – but never stuffy.

What does it cost?

There are two options for adults: 49€ per person including food and soft drink, or 63€ for food, wine, and soft beverages. For children up to the age of 12 it’s 24,50€. For the food, music, setting, and service, it’s a good-value treat . . . especially if you take a hearty appetite with you.

Prices were correct at time of writing.

St Regis Mardavall Mallorca’s Sunday Brunch takes a break for the summer. #Brunchdavall is on offer again from the autumn until the start of the next summer.
