Expert review of Vintage Lounge
This hip bar and restaurant is perched high above the pink rocks of the sinewing coastline, amidst the tall pines in the woods which cloak this stretch of the Costa around Aiguafreda and Sa Tuna. Inside it’s all 1950s retro chic with DJs playing cool brasilia and acid jazz in the evening, but the real star is the terrace with its 180 degree views of the sea. The restaurant is part of the Vintage Hotel.
Rather than traditional three courses, they do what they call platillos here or ‘little plates’. They’re bigger than traditional tapas servings but the idea is similarly that you order a selection to share between you. I like their grilled tuna and they do platters of jamon iberico and local cheeses although none of the portions are huge.
This isn’t somewhere for a cheap night out and you’ll certainly find cheaper tapas and drinks elsewhere but the views are magnificent. It's perfect for watching the sun set.
It's hip but not oppressively so as this is still very much about a laid back, holiday-type vibe. Your fellow drinkers and diners are likely to be cool, glamorous locals with a sprinkling of holiday-makers.
It can sometimes be a bit laid back but young, hip and friendly. The waiters all speak excellent English and the owner is Californian so she obviously does too.
The restaurant and hotel are at the end of a long winding mountain road with the dining area amidst the pines on the cliff-face terrace.
Platillos cost 7-12 euros each.
