This restaurant is next to the sea, in Cala de Bou, on a stretch of rocky coastline, at the far end of the bay of Sant Antoni de Portmany (San Antonio Abad) but is in the jurisdiction of Sant Josep de sa Talaia (San José).

I can't believe I ate the Whole Thing! by Jonathon Lipsin

Tonight, for my birthday dinner it was mixed paella finished off with a hierbas liquor from the Balearic Islands served "on la casa" by the friendly restaurant staff.

The place I chose for this orgy was Can Rafalet in Es Calo de Sant Agustí which boasts the prettiest views on the island.

Here the sea is at it's turquoise best and I like the paella here. Where as other places serve rice with "some things in it" this place serves a paella worth it's salt, studded with meat and seafood.

As soon as you sit down you get a delicious aioli loaded w...

The clientele was composed mainly of other fishermen from the area as tourism had not yet reached Cala d'Hort.

The beach, in fact, was so inaccessible by road that Joan had to bring suppl...

This perfect little hostal is in a delightful country setting, located just about 50 meters from the coast and the beautiful coves of Pou des Lleó and Canal d'en Marti where you can swim and sunbath.

 There is an outside terrace

and a indoor dinning room

 It has a lovely little swimming, so it's great for chilling out

and perfect if you have young children.

This hostal is simply a few rooms above a very traditional local restaurant but the location is wonderful. The staff are pleasant and helpful although they only speak limited English.

When you book, ask for one of the rooms on the top floor at...
