Cala Mastella gives birth to both the location and the name of one of Ibiza's most famous and unique restaurants. Perhaps more commonly known as El Bigotes, the venue's exterior looks like nothing more than a rustic fishing shack whose owner has tried their luck in turning over a small business.
It is a commonly held assumption that the success of any restaurant is partly down to its location, amongst 'other factors'. Well, El Bigotes certainly has a stunning position, embedded into a tranquil cove with views out over the lucent waters. What is more impressive is the manner in which these 'other factors' arguably manage to outshine its striking location.
El Bigotes is packed with Ibiza charm and character. Long wooden benches line the decking that stretches out over the sea. The menu consists of one dish, guixat de peix, a traditional fish stew containing the morning's catch by the owner's son-in-law. Whilst this bubbles away over an open fire in the corner, diners slowly arrive at the restaurant for the only sitting of the day at 2pm. The fantastic fish dish is accompanied with local wines that are drunk from a 'porron' - a traditional Ibiza jug with a spout. The food, ambience and setting all combine to provide a thoroughly enjoyable experience that will not be forgotten in a long while.
El Bigotes provides one of the most authentic Ibiza dining experiences that the island has to offer. Located up the coast from Santa Eulalia near Cala Llenya, the restaurant is a must for any fish lovers eager to experience something a little different. However, do note that they have no telephone so bookings must be made in person at least one day in advance, if not more, to avoid disappointment.
