Review on Can Cera Gastro-Bar
A little off the beaten track on the cobbled streets of Palma's Gothic Quarter, not far from the Cathedral, Can Cera Gastro-Bar is a hidden gem offering diners a tranquil respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. The restaurant is part of the five-star boutique hotel Can Cera, a former Mallorcan palace that can trace its history back to 1232, when Jaume I conquered the island with Catalan and Aragonese troops. Diners have the option of either eating in the restaurant or dining al fresco in a beautiful cobbled courtyard, under majestic arches and surrounded by lush plants.
Taking the helm of the kitchen is Tina Bestard, who showcases her Mallorcan and Mediterranean dishes with a focus on locally sourced ingredients, many of which are gluten free. Among the tapas look for handmade ham croquettes or maybe anchovies from the Cantabrian Sea. From the Market Garden section of the menu there's Caesar salad with chicken, Parmesan and croutons or Majorcan salad with tomato, vegetables, bonito fish and arbequina olives. When it comes to main courses enjoy a succulent roast shoulder of lamb with provencal style potatoes or from the sea grilled octopus with black eggplants purιe, paprika and anis. To finish there's sweet temptations in the shape of coconut pudding with rum raisins or a tatin apple pie served with vanilla ice cream.
