During her time on the island of Mallorca Jennifer ate at Marc Fosh, Tomeu and Adrian Quetglas in Palma, Ca Na Toneta in Caimari, Es Raco de’s Teix in Deia and Restaurante Jardin in Alcudia.
Her visits to these six restaurants with their four Michelin Stars are encapsulated in the following quotes and photographs:
At Marc Fosh: “I firmly believe the environment of a restaurant is dictated by the Chef and how he directs his staff, so I must say “well done” and “thank you” to Chef Fosh for cultivating such a pleasant dining environment.”
At Tomeu: “I can see why Chef Tomeu Caldentey is so revered in Mallorca and look forward to returning to the island and trying his other restaurants.”
At Adrian Quetglas: “Chef Quetglas aims to bring high end cuisine to everyone through his dishes, which is quite clear not only by price point but also by the restaurant’s laid back ambiance.”
At Ca Na Toneta: “Ca na Toneta is very much a family affair, which only makes it more charming. I also want to note how powerful it is to see such a restaurant being run by women. The Solivellas sisters are a force in an industry dominated by men. I applaud and thank them.”
At Es Raco de’s Teix: “The simple but delicious meal ended with moist brioche with olive oil ice cream, accompanied by figs to add a hint of sweetness to the overall savoury finish.”
At Restaurante Jardin: “Upon entering, the very first bite one takes is in the kitchen, after meeting Chef de Castro and getting a view of the kitchen. This intimate experience before the meal cements the fact that the diners are about to be in store for a special night.”
