Expert review of Sa Capella

A classic 400-year old (allegedly haunted) ex-monastery serving magnificent Mediterranean fare.

Whether it’s haunted or not is beyond me, but nothing could scare me away from Sa Capella after I’d experienced my first taste about four years ago – now I visit the ancient monastery at least once a season religiously - excuse the pun! The dramatic setting combined with the Mediterranean menu that just seems to just get better with age explains why this is a fave with many Ibiza stalwarts.

Food and drink: 

The menu showcases the best of the Med – fresh seafood, prime cuts of meat, lush, locally grown seasonal veggies and an extensive wine list to impress the connoisseurs.

Recommended dishes: 

I love their take on tomato soup – more like a melted caprese salad, with the ripest pummeled tomatoes blended with buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil. For mains, the ox steak, which you cook at your own table on a sizzling bed of rock salt, is legendary as is the whole fish of the day, baked inside a bed of salt and the amazing roast suckling pig, so popular it sells out every day. I love it all!

Ambience: 

While the setting itself looks very grandiose, once you’ve settled in you’ll realise it’s a very relaxed affair, with a great mixture of locals, globe-trotting DJs and party promoters plus tourists hailing from all over Europe. In fact, after a few tables have tucked into the homemade Hierbas (Ibiza’s locally produced liqueur) it can get quite raucous in the echoey space.

Service: 

There’s a family-like atmosphere among the staff and loyal clientele and nothing is ever too much trouble.

Location: 

Set up in the secluded, leafy hills behind San Antonio, literally worlds away from the tourist traps of the town.

Price advice: 

Mains are between 20 and 35 euros.

Tables to book: 

For a romantic dinner date, ask for the intimate balcony table inside or for a larger group, the tables outside on the paved terrace are ideal.
