Expert review of Ca n’Antuna
If you’re seeking an authentic taste of Majorca, and local food cooked the way it used to be, look no further. This long established island eatery is the real deal. So much so that even the Spanish royals have been known to stop by for lunch while out walking.
The food in this restaurant is yet more proof that simplicity works best when you let the ingredients speak for themselves. I love the hale and hearty Majorcan bread and cabbage soup served, in season, with grapes plucked fresh from the vine, and perfectly pink and tender little lamb chops with a side of aioli.
Ca n’Antuna is in a pretty stone cottage with a vine-covered terrace, and has a reassuringly rustic feel. In short, it is everything a country restaurant should be.
The restaurant has a jolly, family vibe, but one with an immense sense of pride in everything they do.
What’s not to love: the fabulous views over the little village of Fornalutx and the deep green valley that surrounds it will keep you coming back over and over.
This is great value considering what you get. It costs about 25 euros a head for a couple of courses, dessert and coffee, plus a terracotta jug of fruity country wine.
If the sun is shining, I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be than on this vine-covered terrace. I prefer it as a lunch stop on a long walk, rather than a dinner destination.
