The very best variety of regional cuisine…

We specialise in bespoke tours for a gastronomic golfing experience like no other with the best courses and best regional cuisine.
Like the Beluga caviar or Kobe beef, Jamon Iberico is the ultimate of its kind. Jamon Iberico hams are marbled with rich golden fat, infused with the flavour of its favourite food, the acorn. Sliced paper-thin, it has a rich nutty flavour and tender texture. Jamon Iberico is the pride of Spain and Spaniards consume the vast majority of these hams in their own country.
Fish and vegetables with generous use of garlic and olive oil is hearty peasant fare steeped in tradition and rooted in local ingredients. Paella is not specifically a Majorcan dish but it is widely available. Paella ciega (blind man’s paella) comes without bones. The local equivalent is arros brat, saffron rice cooked with chicken, pork and vegetables. Lobster, prawns, sardines and sea bass are all good. The latter, baked in rock salt, is a Mallorcan speciality.
The city of Palma de Majorca offers the very best variety of regional restaurants and bodegas as well fine dining and contemporary restaurants. Steeped in history with its beautiful cathedral, old town, modern Marina and extensive shopping area this beautiful city can meet all needs. A day spent in Palma is never long enough but is a must on every visit to Majorca.
We believe that once you have experienced the marvellous Majorcan golf courses, restaurants and the friendliness of the locals, you will come back time and again.
