Gastronomic specialties of the Balearic Islands

Culinary specialities of the Balearic Islands

  • The base of the Balearic cuisine is the exceptional wealth of its Mediterranean gardens, full of colour, aromas and taste, accompanied   by a historic farming tradition and touches of the sea in the main coastal villages. All in all, it offers healthy, light and fresh cuisine that is closely linked to the time of the year.
  • At the traditional cuisine restaurants, there is no lack of sucking pig, Majorcan fried fish, a fine bullit de peix (Ibiza), lobster soup (Menorca), snails or ali-oli. Rice, stews and fish dishes make for exceptional menus, ideal to give yourself a treat after a relaxing siesta. 
  • However, the typical dish that always accompanies the visitor from island to island is pa amb oli (bread with oil). Its simplicity is achieved by combining the traditional brown bread in llesques (slices) with extra virgin olive oil from the islands. Ramallet tomato is spread over the bread and you can add whatever you like, from Mahón cheese to sobrasada (spicy pork sausage), as well as tuna or camaiot.
  • Typical desserts: gató de almendra (almond sponge), robiols or Cardenal de Lloseta from Majorca; the bitter desserts, flan, fritters for All Saints’ Day or coca for San Juan in Menorca; flan and Greixonera in Ibiza and Formentera… Not forgetting the delicious and irresistible ensaimada from Majorca.
  • The freshest and most authentic summer salad in the Baleric Islands is trampó. From its simplicity, the result is surprising as it is full of flavours and delicious juice. The magic of this dish lies in using autochthonous products: ramallet tomato, pepper from Majorca and white onion from Majorca, oil and a pinch of salt. And that’s all.
  • In spite of the incredible Mediterranean coastline, meat is one of the essential elements on all menus of Balearic cuisine. On all of the islands and particularly in Majorca and Menorca, slaughtering gatherings are held and cold meats are prepared that are full of flavour and character: camaiot, butifarró, the legendary sobrasada...
  • Fish and seafood are less common dishes but are absolutely sublime: they are usually prepared in a natural way to conserve all of the flavour of the excellent ingredients. Cap Roig from Ibiza, red prawns from Sóller, Majorca and the lobster from Menorca are a luxury for the palate.
  • Wines of Denomination: due to the limited production and the few carefully tended vineyards, the wines of the Balearic Islands are considered to be a collector’s gem. Particularly appreciated and well known are the wines from Majorca, particularly Binissalem and el Pla, where the grape harvesting festival in September is a ritual in itself.
