What’s more, with the adjoining cocktail bar and chic chill-out lounge providing the ideal setting for the program of live music, you need not look elsewhere for your evening’s entertainment.
What is most remarkable is not the tremendously stylish venue. Nor is it the impressive line-up of live acoustic guitarists or the impeccable, friendly staff. What really attracts people to Villa Mercedes is, as it should be, the high quality food. Head chef Carlos Fernandez-Valdes uses his experience under the famous Santi Santamaria at Can Fabes in Catalonia to great effect, producing dishes comprising mainly of locally-sourced ingredients cooked to perfection. The modest pricing is merely a bonus that makes this place openly accessible to so many.
The menu here comprises of some classic Mediterranean dishes with the occasional touch of innovation and flair, such as tantalising Goats’ Cheese Salad starter where juicy-sweet strawberries offset the rich cheese perfectly. As a main course, the fish dishes come highly recommended and in particular, the Supreme of Hake, succulent and flavoursome, should definitely be tried. Leave room for dessert if you can; there are so many favourites amongst the myIbizainfo team that it would be unfair to single any one out.
Located on the waterfront with views across San Antonio’s marina, Villa Mercedes is within easy walking distance of the town centre, but far enough away from the hubbub of the West End to be able to create its own relaxing ambience. Unobtrusive music fills the terrace and indoor dining areas, which include sections upstairs and on the balconies that can be reserved for private parties. Furthermore, free parking is available for customers in the security of the nearby underground car park for up to 3 hours.
