Ibiza restaurants: Cala Bonita
Just minutes from Ibiza’s buzzing town centre, down a bumpy camino on the outskirts of Jesus sits Cala Bonita – a little piece of paradise on the shores of the secluded and much loved S’Estanyol beach that is at once rustic, stylish and chic.
Pau Barba – highly respected across the island and the mainland – heads up the Cala Bonita kitchen. His passion for fresh, seasonal and local produce has helped create a menu brimming with Mediterranean deliciousness – think plenty of seafood and innovative takes on classic dishes. Absolutely everything is handmade, with no short cuts and a top-of-the-line charcoal and wood grill ensuring perfection when it comes to meats and fresh fish.
Tapas Bonita is a new addition to the beach restaurant concept, with an open kitchen and informal vibe presenting light bites and sharing plates from midday until 9pm. Luxurious lunches are served in the main restaurant between 12.30pm to 7pm and the Agave Bar sits between two enormous palm trees on the beach, where cocktail maestros shake and stir thirst-quenchers plus a wide range of artisanal tequilas and mescals all day.
Eat on the beach or the deck, under sun dappled trellises with the glistening Med right before your eyes. Add on a soundtrack of laidback grooves and you won’t find a treasure like this anywhere else on the island.
