This little gem is hidden in a very modest road in Sant Esteve de Palautordera, a town at the Valles Oriental county (the Eastern side of Montseny park). Sant Esteve is 55 kms away from Barcelona city but still in the Barcelona province limits. There are plenty of rural activities at your disposal in this town first documented in history back in IX. As a matter of fact Can Marc is not only a restaurant but a rural farm or "Mas" in Catalan with attractive and comfortable rooms devoted to fans of nature, hiking and horse riding.
But let's go to the main course, the exquisite cuisine of Oriol Sabé with his team led by Sergi Planas
I will give you some examples with pictures. All dishes were part of the 28 Eur menu of the day although you can go A la Carte of course.
A delicious mellow rice with all the subtleties of fresh seafood, especially the famous Blanes shrimps adorned with this delicate foam.
A fresh marinated cod and clams with crisp flavors although not too strong accompanied with apple slices.
A succulent portion of roasted suckling pig with mushrooms and asparagus.
An attractively presented mushroom sautee on egg and bacon.
And for dessert a great tatin sided with what tasted like mint or rosemary, I couldn't tell but the combination was surprisingly good.
