Es Guix, Escorca

Es Guix is one of those places where once you arrive, you feel like you've just made a wonderful discovery. The restaurant is seemingly in the middle of nowhere - in the mountains, on the road from Soller to Pollensa. It's not far from a once-notable destination for pilgrimages, the monastery at Lluc, which has now become a popular tourist attraction. Without any previous knowledge of its location, you would likely never come upon Es Guix - it lies about 100 m down a local road that branches off of the main highway. Ensconced by a wild and verdant garden and 100-year-old trees, the restaurant is housed in an old hunting lodge; the surroundings are unbelievably beautiful, and just a few steps down is a lovely pool - hewn out of the rocky cliffs and fed by mountain springwater. Es Guix serves lunch only (till 4 PM), and despite its seemingly remote location, its terrace is usually overflowing with gourmands. This should, of course, come as no surprise - counter to the supposition that such an outlying place would only serve simple, local fare, the menu at Es Guix is incredibly copious, and everything on it is prepared in the tradition of only the best restaurants. The cod is fantastic, as are the dishes featuring baby goat; the salads and choice of wines are also superb.
