Maria and Teresa Solivellas, the sisters behind Ca Na Toneta, grew up in Mallorca, Spain, and took over their family restaurant a while back with an aim of creating an ecological cafe, “re-creating the tastes of traditional Spanish home cooking.” A decade later, the restaurant is a destination for culinary travelers, and Teresa, who helms the kitchen, was recently named one of the “Top 10 Women Chefs in Spain” by travel guide Guia Repsol. Located in the small village of Caimari, Mallorca, at the foothills of Serra de Tramuntana, the simple restaurant offers a tasting menu that changes every week and features “eggs from happy chickens.”
