La Residencia – Perfect Lunch in the Beautiful Surroundings of Mallorca's West Coast

by Anja

Our trip to Spain also led us to the beautiful island of Mallorca - a girls' trip with the only goal to relax and eat well. One day we took a beautiful ride along Mallorca's West Coast and ended up having lunch at La Residencia. This five-star hotel, beautifully located at Deià's hillside, is home to the well-established El Olivo, but also offers great food at their Son Moragues terrace. For our lunch we decided to pass on the outstanding El Olivo food, but instead have a simpler lunch at the terrace. It turned out to be the perfect decision.


We enjoyed the beautiful, serene setting and the food did not disappoint at all. Everything we ordered was truly delicious. The gazpacho not only refreshing, but full of flavor, and the tomato and avocado salad with smoked salmon was just right for this hot summer day. We also ordered the homemade beef burger and grilled fish of the day. Everything was simple yet savory. Of course, we could not pass on dessert and tried the strawberry cake and the wild fruit flambé with vanilla ice cream. Both were delicious!







So, if you ever make it to Mallorca and drive along the beautiful coast, make sure to stop in Deià and enjoy this beautiful terrace for lunch. Should you make it to El Olivo, let us know how you liked it!
