About Restaurant Can Marques
The Restaurant Can Marques opened with its adjoining luxury hotel, Palacio Can Marques, in the autumn of 2018 in Palma’s historic La Lonja district. The whole property underwent a meticulous renovation project lasting several years, to retain all the original 18th-century splendour and historic charm.
The bistro-style restaurant is housed under the grand palazzo’s vaulted ceilings which – combined with comfy leather seating, terracotta tile floor and delicate ceramic wall art – creates a cosy yet sophisticated atmosphere to enjoy a menu of classic French cuisine.
The food and drink
Lunch can be taken in the restaurant or the hotel’s leafy, secluded garden, and includes such Gallic gastronomic standards as Quiche Lorraine and Salad Niçoise. More international dishes take the form of Chicken Tandoori Club Sandwich and Russian Salad with Lobster.
For dinner, an amuse-bouche is recommended, two fine examples being Gratinated Oyster Florentine and Vichyssoise with Herring Caviar. Continue with the likes of baked Burgundy snails with garlic butter or their outstanding onion soup. Mains highlights are the Chicken Vol-au-vents, Cocotte of Beef Bourguignon and Skate with hazelnut and caper butter. Desserts range from Red fruit Pavlova to Îles flottantes with custard cream.
The wine list offers a wide selection of French and Spanish vintages, including an impressive choice of champagnes. There’s also a cocktail bar for an aperitif or post-dinner tipple.
Belgian-born Cédric Lebon is the masterful chef behind the cuisine, who can boast experience as the Executive Chef of around dozen hotels around the island and beyond. While his beautifully presented dishes features plenty of culinary flair, he sticks to classic recipes and flavours, using only fresh and authentic local and French products and ingredients. He is so committed to reproducing the flavours of authentic French cooking, if quality Normandy butter can’t be sourced directly from France then the chef makes his own.
