Who would have guessed that such a great little restaurant would be found in this small street just off the busy Via Alemana? Definitely an insider tip for lunch and dinner, Casa Maruka (56 covers) is owned by the chef, pastry chef, and a silent partner.
The restaurant has several intimate dining areas, and looks onto a pretty terrace (shared by the building’s other occupants, so there’s no al fresco dining).
Although the exterior hasn’t changed, the interior has had a welcome makeover since our last visit. The lighting is more subtle, there is attractive new tiled flooring, and cheerful modern art on the walls. The authentic homely ambience, friendly super-attentive service, and high-quality, great-value-for-money Mallorcan cuisine remain.
We had a welcome of gazpacho and pâté from the kitchen. The à la carte menu offers traditional favourites as well as seasonal market cuisine. From the latter we had a juicy scallop topped with pancetta ‘ibérica’ accompanied by an artichoke heart and scattered with brunoise vegetables. From the day’s recommendations, we ate suckling pig, which was tender, slightly pink, and with satisfying crackling.
The unmissable dessert is their renowned made-to-order (it takes 30 minutes) apple tart, served with vanilla ice cream. Great for sharing . . . or not!
We love… the welcoming and caring attitude of the staff.
