Majorca Restaurant near Lluc

Majorca Restaurant Guix : between Caimari and the Monastery of Lluc , near Pollensa, there is a mountain path on which travelers, pilgrims or locals can take a remarkable journey. In the old days people arrived by car at Caimari, there began the real journey, which was done on donkey or on foot.

According to Father Rafael, the archivist of Lluc, the Mallorcans who crossed the mountains to reach the monastery of Lluc as pilgrims or for work (collecting olives, charcoal burning, etc.) needed about three hours to reach the Vall de Lluc, if they knew the narrow ravines and the famous mountain passes. La Costa Llarga is the first of these passes, next comes Sa Llengonissa and the third pass is remarkable Alt d'es Guix, at this farm, just one hundred years ago, there was the gypsum quarry from which it takes its name. At the highest point of the path is the Coll de sa Batalla, or the pass of the Battle, which is said to recalls an episode from the conquest of Mallorca in the thirteenth century.

A hundred metres from here, below the crossroads where the road starts its descent into the valley, is one of the most important restaurants in the Sierra.  Surrounded by rock  outcrops and almost hidden among oak groves and wild vegetation, is a stone house set in a corner of unmatched beauty.

majorca restaurant es guix faithfully follows the traditions of the mountains.  A stone built terrace, where the silence is only broken by the songs of the birds, and a natural lake surrounded by trees complete this unique landscape. It is one of the few places named in the most important guides to Europe as a unique treasure of the island : Majorca Restaurant Guix

“Whatever your beliefs, it's an ideal place to raise an appetite for lunch at Es Guix, the splendidly isolated local restaurant, in a converted hunting lodge along a rough private road. With its renowned menu of mountain dishes and its own, bracingly cold spring-water swimming pool, it attracts foodies and families from all over the island.”   The Independent

Culture Vultures
While Palma offers an impressive array of galleries, museums and gothic churches, the rest of the island matches up pretty well. To the north, a blissful spot to visit is Lluc Monastery, high in the mountains (, where an austere but fascinating complex of 18th- and 19th-century buildings sprawl across a quiet wooded area. A nearby gem of a restaurant is Es Guix (, which has outdoor seating and serves delicious local food. To the north, beyond Alcudia, is Fundación Yannick y Ben Jakober (+34 971 549 880) a little-known haven of art and good taste. In the north, Pla, beyond Petra, is Ermita de Nostra Senyora de Bonay, meaning “Good Year”, and so-called after locals in 1609 prayed for water and broke a seemingly endless drought. And, in the west, in nearby Valldemossa, is where the composer Frederick Chopin and his lover George Sands spent a great deal of their time.”  EasyJet Magazine

”This restaurant is in the middle of the mountains on the street connecting Pollennça and Soller. It has a pool build into the rocks and if you go there in the summer don’t forget to take you bathing suit with you. At Es Guix you can eat the best suckling pig on the island. If you don’t like that they still have a big variety of things you can eat on their menu  .” Off-the-path. com top places to eat in mallorca
