Yemanja beach restaurant in Cala Jondal opens all year round, that means 365 days, offering a fantastic view from one of the island’s picture-perfect bays. There’s nothing better than enjoying a long afternoon lunch in the winter, with the water lapping against the shore. This festive season, the popular eatery offers three special menus to help you celebrate, starting between December 23 and 26, when it will offer its Christmas menu. From December 28 until January 2 the New Year’s menu and finally January 4 to January 8, with a special Rayes Magos menu.
It’s the perfect end to what has been another big year for Yemanja, a restaurant that boasts a strong local following as well as a steady stream of tourists throughout the summer season. One of the best locations on the island is a strong foundation, but it is the mouth-watering menu and the genuine hospitality that everyone who visits is shown that keeps people coming back time and again. While it has become famous for its Mediterranean flavours and use of locally sourced ingredients, the popular a la carte menu takes a back seat over the festive season but, fear not, you are still in for a treat when you drop in.
The Christmas menu is the first to land, taking over from December 23 and including a choice of starters ¬– seafood platter on salt, duck salad with mango and mixed berry vinaigrette and lobster bisque. A light but flavoursome opening if ever there was one. For the main courses, the philosophy of offering a strong choice continues – sole fish, stuffed with prawns in clam and cava sauce, turkey stuffed with pumpkin purée, glazed carrots and peas and, finally, cuttlefish ink rice with red prawn and piquillos peppers emulsion. Make sure you’ve left some space for the sweet treat to end the feast – roasted chestnut lioneses with nougat ice cream and chocolate. It’s the perfect balance for Christmas and means you can return on more than one occasion, to make sure you get to try everything!
