Forn de Sant Joan: Gastronomy with its own history


The Forn de Sant Joan Restaurant is located in La Lonja (the old fish market) in the historic centre of Palma. This emblematic place dating from the XIX century was formerly a bakery and was turned into a restaurant by its founder, Joan Baqués, in 1992. Recently refurbished by his children, FORN is the perfect restaurant in Palma de Mallorca to celebrate a special occasion with your friends and loved ones, a business lunch or an unforgettable evening with your other half.

The restaurant has four different areas where you can enjoy four different experiences. There is the Main Room, casual yet elegant; the Sala Cristal, small and intimate; the Sala Roja (the Red Room), perfect for a romantic dinner and the Bar-Lounge, with its modern, low-key design, ideal to have tapas in the centre of Palma or a drink before or after dinner.

The excellent service is without a doubt one of the reasons why the FORN is so successful and is offered by first class professionals who leave nothing to chance. The restaurant offers a varied and well thought out menu, an excellent choice of wines and some creative and delicious desserts. Everything comes together to make the Forn de Sant Joan one of the best known restaurants in Palma.


About us

Forn Projects is a group of restaurants in Palma de Mallorca formed as a direct result of the success of Forn de Sant Joan, a gastronomic reference in the island opened in 1992 thanks to its founder, Joan Baqués, whose sons Carlos and Christian Baqués refurbished the restaurant, formerly a bakery, to continue with the family business.


The Forn Projects group also comprises Ombu y Koa.

A passion for creative gastronomy, hard work and innovation on a daily basis have contributed to our consolidation as one of the best known restaurants on the island and our motivation for moving forward each and every day.
