Hi.

Welcome to my blog. Here I document our adventures with some style, interiors and food thrown in!

Lunch at Es Guix

Lunch at Es Guix

I have been travelling to Mallorca since I was 2 years old and there have only been a couple of years since then that I haven't visited. It holds such a special place in my heart and I felt quite emotional bringing Bella for the first time. Some of my best childhood memories are in Mallorca and it's wonderful seeing her enjoying it with my parents and Grandma just like I did.

Anyway enough mushy stuff, as I said I've been to Mallorca a lot but there is so much of the island I haven't seen. A couple of years back our good friends went to Mallorca for their mini-moon and came across an amazing little gem hidden up in the mountains : Es Guix . A beautiful, traditional Mallorcan restaurant up in the northern hills. We were lucky to be able to leave Miss B with her grandparents which was such a treat, it really felt like such a luxury and a proper day off

What makes the place so memorable, maybe even more than the delicious food is the beautiful setting. With a freshwater pool in the grounds this place really is a one off...

It's a pretty relaxed vibe and the waitress that looked after us was lovely. As most diners use the pool after you don't have to be dressy which is ideal in the heat. Although we didn't take Bella with us it is very family friendly, there were a few children there who obviously loved the novelty of the pool.

We feasted on tomato and mozerlla salad with jamon to start...

 Followed by the infamous suckling pig and lamb shoulder

All washed down with an ice cold sauvignon blanc...

Afterwards we couldn't help but dive into the refreshing (pretty cold) pool....

If you are in Mallorca I would highly recommend taking a trip up to Es Guix. Make sure you book to avoid disappointment, we saw a lot of people get turned away on a Wednesday lunchtime. It's a bit of a climb up into the mountains, but the views are pretty spectacular so try and pull over for a look if you can!
