Review on Millo Restaurant
Occupying a corner location on the leafy street of Calle Caro on the outskirts of the Santa Catalina area of Palma in Mallorca, Millo is an intimate restaurant serving Columbian cuisine. Inside it has a modern but cosy décor, tables are well-laid with crisp napery and smart red leather chairs offer a flamboyant splash of colour.
Taking the helm of the open kitchen is chef/patron Michel Guzmán, while his business partner Loic Villepontoux deftly takes charge of front of house. Michel honed his culinary skills at a number of high profile restaurants including Michelin-starred restaurants Arzak and Martín Berasategui in Spain, Richard Marco in France, and Andreu Genestra in Capdepera, Mallorca. Looking to his Columbian heritage he creates vibrant dishes based on Colombian products, alongside locally sourced produce. He also makes excellent use of his own flavoured vinegars and fermentations used in the traditional cuisine of his native country, known as cocina mestiza a unique fusion of Spanish, African and European influences.
The kitchen produces a concise menu that changes regularly along the lines of Sea bream ceviche with coconut milk, avocado, onion, limon, and green banana followed by a main course of Rabbit, creole sauce and suflee of yellow corn. Desserts are prettily displayed with a mousse of guava, guanabana ice, chocolate and coconut.
The Spanish and Mallorcan wines keep their prices in check and there's also a very nice gin list.
