Inca – best known for its leather goods – is also home to this restaurant named after its chef/owner Joan Marc Garcias Amer – who was born just a stone’s throw away.
Restaurante Joan Marc
Spanish, English and German
Joan Marc’s career has included working as head chef at Son Brull Hotel, alongside Marc Fosh at Reads, and at Sant Pau and the former El Racó de Can Fabes, on the peninsula.
The restaurant overlooks a large square, and has a light and contemporary interior, designed by Marga Rotger, with décor inspired by nature: the tree trunks are a talking point – as is the changing exhibition of local artisan jewellery (for sale) by D-Dues Joies. The place has a informal feel, enhanced by the ability to see the chef at work in his kitchen, but can be rather noisy when it’s full.
Joan Marc’s cuisine is his modern take on rustic Mallorcan recipes – based on simplicity, and quality local and seasonal produce. Ingredients may include suckling pig, snails, local sausage, tripe, pigeon, pork, lamb, and local fish.
Compose your own tasting menu of 3, 4, or 6 courses, from a choice of around five starters, three fish, three meat, and five dessert dishes. Each tasting menu includes appetizer, home-made Xeixa wheat bread, local extra virgin olive oil, and ‘fleur de sal’.
We love: Joan Marc’s passion for the island’s cuisine.
