This restaurant has been here for a couple of years now, and is hidden away from the main town area of Sant Antoni de Portmany (San Antonio Abad), near the end of Cala de Bou, overlooking San Antonio Bay.
After our two of visits in 2018, we returned in July 2020, just after the slight easing of Covid Lockdown. You were allowed to remove your masks to eat, which would have been quite difficult, otherwise!
Masks at the ready.
We popped in for a light lunch, (do we really have light lunches!) and tried the following.
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).
It started, as a small snack bar over thirty years ago.
It is nan,a no-frills restaurant, serving superb seafood.
With an open kitchen you can see all the chefs at work.
There is a live tank, where you can choose your lobster if you wish.
You must try El Bullit de Peix con Arroz a Banda de Can Pujol, which is the house classic.
The dish comes in two courses: A soup-like, firs...
On our return to Hostal Marino in July 2020, after a couple of years of absence, we came across a few changes.
The outside of the hostal had completely changed.
This, I believe, was for local legislation regarding balconies being made more secure and slightly higher.
But inside was the biggest change, the swimming pool was not there anymore!
This is because, the hosta, are building a new 27 room 4-star hotel in the space next door, which is taking part of the area where the swimming pool was. The new hotel will have a swimming pool on the roof and guests at Hostal Marino will be able to use it. There...
Often described by people in the know and the many famous celebrities who visit the Island, restaurant Sa Capella, is thier favourite in Sant Antoni de Portmany (San Antonio). It's not actually in the lively and much maligned town itself, but a few km outside, on the way to Cala Salada and Santa Agnés, in the lovely Ibicencan countryside.
It is one of the most delightful restaurant's on the island with a great decor and fantastic ambiance, it is situated in a converted late 16th century chapel. Inside there are small booths around the main cavernous room which has low lighting and candles. I...
This review contains three different trips to Es Boldado
When driving from Sant Josep to Cala d’Hort, before you get there, take the last right turn to Cala Truja, after abour 3 km you will see the sign for Es Boldado on your left.
Turn into this road and drive down the dusty camino (dirt track) for around 1.5km and you will come upon the best view in Ibiza. If you are looking for a restaurant with a view, this is the one for you.
Restaurante Es Boldado is situated on a precipitous cliff, facing the mystical Islets of Es Vedrá (supposedly the third most magnetic place on earth!) and...
Wonderful Valencian style paella and fideuà are served at this family run restaurant away from the busy summer crowds of Ibiza on the way to ses Salinas beach and its famous chiringuitos like Sa Trinxa and Jockey Club.
Start with the local pan y aioli
Fideuà is a dialectal pronunciation of the Valencian or Catalan word fideuada (which means a large number of noodles) it is a seafood dish originally from the coast of Valencia which is similar to paella (paella is actually the name of the pan it is cooked in) and even more to arròs a banda, but with noodles instead of rice. The main...
After meeting Jonathon Lipsin and Bernadette Mundy on Facebook through our joint love of Ibiza, Formentera and music, I invited them over to Ibiza for a days tour of the Island for food, fun and frolics each year.
This was to be our second trip and we met at our usual meeting place outside the Café Mar y Sol in Ibiza Town after their short sea trip from Formenter, we were joined this time by my friends from London, Danny and Pankaj.
Once settled in our hire car I gave them a CD I had made of their favourite music (this had become a regular tradition) and we set off for our tour. Leaving the busy Eivissa (Ibiza town) w...
