Expert review of Zab

Enjoy gentle Thai flavours in mellow surrounds.

This place doesn’t seem remotely Thai when you walk into it - there are no polished wooden Buddhas and little by way of hanging lanterns. But the softly lit stone dining room, white linens and intimate vibe make it a great spot for something different when you tire of more traditional island cooking.

Food and drink: 

Don’t come expecting blow-your-head-off curries or stir-fries liberally spiked with chillies and peppercorns. This is a mellower kind of cooking, more universally appealing, but still filled with bright flavours and aromas.

Recommended dishes: 

Try the satay chicken with lemon grass dipping sauce and the sweetly spiced king prawn curry.

Ambience: 

Softness is the word that springs to mind here. Décor, music, chatter - all is hushed and tranquil. This is not a place to party, but a great place to chill.

Service: 

All is kindliness and gentle; this is the kind of place you feel looked-after and cherished.

Location: 

Zab is in pretty much the last house as you drive through Calonge en route to Porto Colom.

Price advice: 

The restaurant is pricier than it really should be. Expect to spend around 50 euros for three courses and a bottle of wine.
