We find someL q -estimates for the spherical functions on Cartan domains. As an application we prove that if the rank of the Cartan domainD is greater than one, then for any 1<-q<∞, the invariant mean-value property forL q -function onD does not imply harmonicity (the converse is known to be true even in the context of general non-compact Riemannian symmetric spacesG/K).
