The Restaurant adds Hispanic flavours at the beginning of the year

The Restaurant by Pierre Balthazar is delighted to welcome Macarena de Castro from restaurant Jardin* in Alcùdia (Spain) amongst its chefs and international collaborators.

Pierre Balthazar will welcome the Spanish chef to celebrate this new distinguished collaboration and they will prepare 2 lunches (27 & 28/01) and an exclusive diner (28/01) together at The Restaurant*. Book this gastronomic experience now!

Macarena de Castro

Like her predecessors – Michaël Fulci from Les Terraillers* in Biot, Oth Sombatch from Aux Trois Nagas in Paris and Luigi Taglienti from Il Ristorante Trussardi alla Scala* in Milan (who she replaced) – who all followed Pierre Balthazar’s concept, Macarena de Castro has to use the same 9 basic ingredients and transform these with her expertise and Pierre’s help into an incredibly varied menu!

Macarena de Castro

The sensory journey through Spain and its gastronomic culture cannot be missed, whether it is for a business lunch for those who are in a rush, a 2- or 3-course menu for those who are curious or for a truly Spanish 6-course degustation menu for the Epicureans among us, whether or not accompanied by a matching selection of Spanish wines. Such a beautiful moment of sharing and conviviality is unfortunately only available to a limited number of guests, so do not hesitate and book now*. *By reservation only

About Macarena de Castro

This Spanish chef has been cooking from an early age and cut her teeth with master chefs. Her restaurant, Jardin*, was crowned with a Michelin star in 2012 and has become a successful family business as well as a true hotspot for foodies.

Macarena de Castro

The chef of the house

Pierre Balthazar, the chef and current “Culinary Director” of The Restaurant, has been on a bold and eclectic journey and he owes his open-mindedness especially to his 10 multicultural years at the head of Council of Europe’s kitchens.

He can draw from this experience to create a unique concept for The Hotel, by offering a range of the best culinary influences globally, in close collaboration with his international network of chefs, who have also become his friends.
