Ibiza restaurants: King Crab at Cala Bonita

Top quality seafood needs little adornment and if there is any restaurant in Ibiza that fully respects the natural flavours of shellfish, it’s Cala Bonita. This gorgeous seaside chiringuito at S’Estanyol beach is home to the most delectable plate of Alaskan king crab to be found on the island.

Cooked to perfection in a gentle emulsion of onion, garlic and olive oil, the aromatic flavours of the crab are kept as clean and natural as possible. Just a few slices of lime provide a touch of acidity to counteract the opulent crabmeat. Matched with a crisp bottle of white, good company and that awe-inspiring view, it’s all one needs to reach culinary nirvana.
