Sa Caleta first opened its doors in 1998 and has never closed a day since. Offering the island a year round, traditional option, the family run eatery is understandably popular with locals and those in-the-know. It occupies the clifftop above charming beach of Es Bol Nou, the rustic restaurant boasts a simple design, in keeping with its authentic vibe, with nautical paraphernalia dotted throughout, hinting at some of the strongest dishes on the menu!
It’s very much a family affair, run by Jordi, whose parents Pepin Candona and Viki Baos founded the eatery, it boasts recipes that have been handed down through generations of the family and utilises the finest fresh produce and ingredients from around the area. As a regular all-rounder, Sa Caleta has a strong local following, which adds to its unique atmosphere, busy, no matter when you drop in. No matter how hard you try however, you can’t keep something this good a secret for long and Sa Caleta enjoys a tourist clientele that travels from all over the world to sample its delicious food and jaw-dropping view. It is arguably one of the most romantic dining spots on the island.
The location, metres above the ocean, added to the nautical theme of the décor indoors gives an indication of some of its most popular dishes. This stunning seafood restaurant offers a wide range of fare from the ocean, all prepeared and cooked by a talented kitchen team that is steeped in island tradition. One of our favourites on our last visit was the Bullit de Peix, or fish stew to you and I, containing grouper, cuttlefish, John Dory, monkfish and potatoes, which tasted every bit as good as it smelled! It’s hearty dishes such as this that has been a staple in the winter diet of islanders and has translated to one of the most popular island menus! Paella is another must try, with Sa Caleta adopting its own unique recipe for the much-loved Spanish dish. There is a stack of fantastic fare to be enjoyed, all of which will put a heat in your belly out of season. No meal is complete without finishing with Greixonera cake. Another local tradition, it’s the perfect desert, especially with a scoop of ice cream! For those days where the weather is not playing ball, or every time you visit, depending on your preference, make sure you complete your experience with a pot of coffee. It’s another family recipe, with brandy, cinnamon, orange peel and other spices added. It will leave you rosy cheeked, with a warm and fuzzy feeling. Sa Caleta is a genuine Ibiza gem and one that has to be experienced and with 356 days to choose from, there’s no excuse for not visiting!
