mmm… Monday! Utopía, Cala des Moltons

9 Jun

Utopia - Cala des Moltons_26We’re back from our holidays in Ibiza. That’s sad. Sigh! But we are full of energy and have lots of things to share with you, so this blog is coming back to its normal schedule! Let’s start with one of the highlights of our trip: a hidden restaurant in a tiny cave called Cala des Moltons. We were exploring the North of the island when we found this little foodie paradise.
Utopia - Cala des Moltons_2Placed next to Port San Miquel, a beautiful beach which has been taken by thousands of really obvious tourist hotels, shops and restaurants, to find this cave you will have to hike a little bit and follow the white and turquoise signs which will lead you to Utopia, this tiny beach restaurant with only three tables with a passion for local organic produce.

Utopia - Cala des Moltons_3Utopia - Cala des Moltons_5The hike takes no longer than 10 minutes, but it will transport you far away from the loud music, the hoards of families looking for cheap meals and all the tourist parafernalia. The views along the way will make you want to stop and breath. The scent of pines, the sound of the water rocking the boats… That’s the Mediterranean allure at its best.

Utopia - Cala des Moltons_4Utopia - Cala des Moltons_1Suddenly you will see this little haven, both for boats (one side of the cove is full of the typical constructions to shelter llauts, Ibiza’s traditional boats) and for thirsty and hungry travellers. Utopia is white, turquoise and vibrant pink. It mixes the laid back Ibiza style, some Greek touches (those white chairs!) and a menu with delicious Moroccan influences. The place is simply beautiful. It gives you that euphoric feeling that only comes with those unexpected discoveries when travelling.

Utopia - Cala des Moltons_15We finally went for the plate of squids and sardines and a fantastic cous cous with pollo payés (that is local organic chicken) that was on the menu just for the day! Both were truly amazing. Utopia - Cala des Moltons_29The fish plate was tasty, seasoned with a subtle garlic touch that didn’t hide the original flavours.
Utopia - Cala des Moltons_23The cous cous was the best one we’ve ever eaten. They served it beautifully. The chicken was as tender as they get. Everything was juicy, cooked perfectly and… just delicious. Every ingredient had its own flavour and it mixed perfectly with the others.
