Some of the recent restaurants in Palma are famous not only for their menu but for their stylish interior, the creative kitchen and the hip crowd they attract. Casa Maruka is different. It’s a rather down-to-earth place, but always busy at night, filled with laugher and storytelling across the long tables. A wonderful atmosphere that makes you part of it all while you relish the food.
Casa Maruka offers Spanish and Mallorcan cuisine with a modern touch, made from fine fresh ingredients. The menu is a great read of hearty classics: croquettes, frito de pulpo, or coca de atún, typical salads and rice dishes, plus entrées del mar and carnes. I fell for the millefeuille with apples, goat cheese and liver pate, followed by merluza with jamon on fennel – and it was exceptional. The servings are large, but some dishes also come in half portions. Specialty of the house is the tarta de manzana – to be ordered half an hour in advance, because it’s put in the oven just for you. And complemented by a cafe Salar the perfect closing of your dinner.
The restaurant hides beyond the avenidas close to Plaça Espanya on Carrer Reina Maria Cristina. Maybe you know the song by the Detroit Cobras that goes by that name, Maria Cristina? It puts you in the same high spirits. Casa Maruka is the perfect place to meet for lunch or dinner with your partner, with friends or your whole family and have a good time. Enjoy!
