Joan Marc Restaurant in Inca

One evening just before Christmas, I went to meet Joan Marc Garcias Amer, a Mallorcan Chef I had already heard a lot about, at his newly opened restaurant in Inca.

Joan Marc is well known for being a creative Chef who is at once very true to the local produce available on the island; he supports the slow food movement and gained a brilliant reputation whilst working at 3|65 Restaurant in Pollensa.

He always knew he would eventually open his own establishment, so when one became available on the square in Inca he grew up on and played on as a child, he jumped at the opportunity.

Joan Marc has the support of a loving family and together they have refurbished the restaurant following a very natural and welcoming design. Key features are the real tree trunks which line the walls from floor to ceiling, and which make you feel at one with the trees in the centre of the square, and the handmade menus which have been made by a traditional basket weaver.

The menu changes according to the season and the produce available. Specialties include authentic Mallorcan dishes which have been recreated with Joan Marc’s personal touch and with home-grown produce from the family’s vegetable garden.

We think Inca was in need of a restaurant like Joan Marc, and we are sure you will agree that’s it’s worth a visit.
