Can Salinas Manuel El Rey de la Fideuà
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 ingredients are small pasta noodles (usually like macaroni or fideo’s (thin, like spaghettini, 15cm long, which come in various small sizes), fish (firm fish, cuttlefish, squid), and shellfish (prawns, langoustines, lobster, mussels). It is seasoned mainly with lemon.
These famous paella and fideuà dishes are made in the traditional way.
Chicken, rabbit and vegetable paellas are also available.
It is always good to book in advance because they need the right time to prepare the food for you.
Paella de mariscos
This is a very characterful spot in Ibiza, under the trees and with a stunning sunset view of ses Salinas in the evening.
It is excellent for groups and kids (There is a play area). After eating there is an hammock to lie back on and chillout!!
It is a nice place to stop on your way to or back from the beach and very reasonably priced. (paella is €20pp).
If you have to wait there is a small bar area to have a drink, but there is no inside seating
My suggestion is to have dinner there slightly before the sunset just to enjoy the colour of the sun and watch the flamingos on the salt plains of Ses Salinas, opposite the restaurant.
Go past the church on the way to Salinas and it is on the left before the Platja des Cavallet turnoff before Salinas beach.
Wines are good but basic and the service is friendly and efficient but not over the top.
These dishes can be a little high in salt but that is the traditional way and, of course, you are opposite the famous Salinas salt plains after all!
Apart from the rice dishes there are
Great fried fish like sardines
Calamari frita (grilled squid)
Chipirones (small grilled squid)
Pulpo frita (fried octopus
Gambas al ajillo (garlic prawns)
Reservations are required.
This is Ibiza, this is life.
