Marc Fosh is probably the only British chef working in Mallorca, Spain. He started there in early 2001 and in 2009 opened his first restaurant and earned a Michelin Star.
To be honest, Marc Fosh was not our first choice for our last night in Palma the Mallorca, we initially wanted to go to the restaurant Zaranda (**), but they considered our almost eight year old son to be to young to sit through the whole dinner quietly and thus would not take our reservation. So our option B was Marc Fosh where they kindly accepted a seven-year-old.
When we looked at the menu, we found their “Menu Natural” very appealing, it was indeed true for the first three dishes : the savoury goat milk yogurt with compressed apricot, granola, curry and pickled red onion; salt baked beetroot tartare with wild fennel pollen; and probably the best Tortellini dish we ever had, cooked Tajine style with tomato and a smoked garlic emulsion.
But the four following dishes were a let down, a disappointing finale not up to the first three dishes. The two desserts were downright distasteful.
How could a menu go from high to low in seven acts? How could Marc Fosh score so high and finally lose so big? One reason, we suspected, was that the Menu Natural was not thouroughly thought through by the chef and his team, plus the dessert should be more refined and subtle.
Overall, our dinner at Marc Fosh was so-so and left us wondering whether he really deserves a Michelin Star when there was such an enormous gap between all the dishes.
The wine list was mostly Mediterraneen (Spain, France and Italy) with great local wines from Mallorca. They also had a great choice of cocktails.
The service by our hostess was impeccable and in English.
