Diners remark about the incredible ‘wow’ factor they experience when driving through the front gates of Encanterra for the first time. They talk about the gorgeous golf course, the majestic palm trees, and the romantic entry fountain. It’s a true transformation of arrival when you come upon the gorgeous resort, and it excites you for the truly unique dining adventure that awaits.
It’s this emotional connection and the feeling of being on vacation that led us to explore new names for our restaurant. And Palma Kitchen + Tap was the clear winner. Not only is “Palma” Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese for “palms,” the design is also reflective of the Mallorca Islands of Spain, often referred to as “Palma de Mallorca.”
While the atmosphere is sophisticated, it also blends beautifully with the Mediterranean architectural theme of La Casa at large. The upscale design gives you a warm and comfortable feeling that easily transports you to Europe. The open layout design segues elegantly to the outdoors, offering diners the opportunity for casual intimate evenings under the palms.
Join us at Palma Kitchen + Tap as Chef Josh Goetz and his culinary team prepare fresh farm-to-table entrees that will that make you smile.
Palma is open to both Encanterra Members and the public. We’ll see you under the palms.
