I started the blog in October 2009, while living in Milan which I definitely consider to be one of the food capitals of the world. I was in touch with food since my early childhood (as my father is a former chef). Whenever I can, I travel the world to discover new places, to meet people but mostly to try local dishes and to find hidden gems! If you know a place worth going, please drop a line to: info@thediningexperience.org.
Currently, I am a member of the following food-related associations: Chevalier @Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Zurich-Ville; Membre Gourmet Dégustateur @Ordre Mondial des Gourmets Dégustateurs [OMGD]; Gesellschafter @Goldener Fisch and Member @Slowfood Convivium Zurich City.

The perfect place for large tapas: Restaurant La Bodeguilla (25. February 2020)

The perfect place for large tapas: Restaurant La Bodeguilla (25. February 2020)

La Bodeguilla is yet another recommendation by the Guide Michelin app 2020 and I must say, a good one. The restaurant is basically offering a selection of tapas. One thing in advance – please keep in mind, that “small portions” in Spain are much much larger than in Northern European countries. I went for the […]

Great drinks location with a harbor view for sunset: Almaq Rooftop Bar (25. February 2020)

Great drinks location with a harbor view for sunset: Almaq Rooftop Bar (25. February 2020)

The Almaq Rooftop Bar in the Es Princep hotel offers what it promises – a nice view over the city/harbor of Palma de Mallorca and some nice drinks. I went for the “mojito fresa” (EUR 14.00) which was actually surprisingly good as the drink had freshly cut fruits in it and the alcohol amount wasn’t […]

After this experience – not a deserved Michelin star: Restaurant Marc Fosh (24. February 2020)

After this experience – not a deserved Michelin star: Restaurant Marc Fosh (24. February 2020)

The Marc Fosh sounded incredibly promising when I read about the place on the Guide Michelin App 2020 but it turned out that it isn’t as promising as it reads. I went for the “Marc Fosh” tasting menu (EUR 92.00 if you take all the courses) which started with a “wild mushroom and truffle cappuccino” […]

Resort experience in every aspect: Restaurant La Terrassa @ Marriott’s Club Son Antem (24. February 2020)

The La Terrassa is a simple restaurant in the Marriott’s Club Son Antem which also acts as the golf restaurant of the resort. There is a little terrace (as the name of the restaurant would suggest) where you can sit outside but it kind of lacks atmosphere. We were able to order, as we were […]

An exquisite lunch offering with great service: Restaurant Quadrat & Garden (23. February 2020)

The Quadrat was a recommendation from the Guide Michelin 2020 app and I must say, a very good one. For lunch, they offered the “menu arroces” (EUR 24.50) which was basically three small bites, a rice dish of your choice plus a dessert. The starters were “fish fritters with vegetables in Mallorcan style” and “smoked […]

Decent option in Son Antem: Restaurant La Finca Son Antem (22. February 2020)

Decent option in Son Antem: Restaurant La Finca Son Antem (22. February 2020)

The La Finca Son Antem is located in the Marriott Vacation Club and can only be accessed through the main gate – security isn’t really tight though. Once you’ve arrived, you are welcomed by a nice building which emits somehow a kind of antique feeling. The waiters were friendly and super swift although we hadn’t […]

Great business lunch offering in a nice setting: Restaurant Smith and de Luma (21. February 2020)

Since I’ve recently been to the Smith and de Luma for an event (MEAT Academy), I decided to give it a try again for a regular lunch. And I must say that it is a place I can absolutely recommend. They offer a lunch menu for CHF 32.00 starting with a “cauliflower soup” which was […]

Great location but overpriced omelets: Restaurant Bohemia (20. February 2020)

Breakfast for champions is what you get at the Bohemia – but for Swiss prices! I went for the “Havanna omelet (chorizo, tomato cubes, cheddar, sour cream, home-made bread)” (CHF 22.00) which was quite a large omelet and which was also rather tasty all in all. However, CHF 22.00 for an omelet (I mean, it’s […]
