A fish and rice restaurant on an isolated pebble beach.

This off-the-beaten path fish restaurant has been around since 1969. It’s been popular with anyone prepared to make the effort to get there ever since: trekkers, intrepid motorists, sea kayakers to name but a few. But shhh… just don’t tell everybody.

Food and drink

A proper fish and seafood restaurant with some lively salads and good quality tapas.

Recommended dishes

My vote goes to the grilled fish and sumptuous paellas washed down with a cold, crisp bottle of Verdejo (the Spanish equivalent of Sauvignon Blanc).

Ambience

Es Port is old fashioned with a warm, inviting atmosphere. A brutal wind can blow up in these parts so, with the best will in the world, the terraces (ground and first floor) aren’t always ideal.

Service

These guys are full of enthusiasm for their pristine little corner of the world and it rubs off. Sitting here you feel very privileged, like you’ve been let into some great and wonderful secret.

Location

Talk about the ends of the earth - you need nerves of steel to drive the steep, hairpin bends that lead down to the Port de Valldemossa, but boy is it worth it for a quick dip off the pebble beach followed by a long leisurely lunch in Es Port.

Price advice

Starters cost anywhere between 3.50 euros for a pa amb oli (bread, aioli and olives), salads around 8.50 euros and main fish or rice dishes anywhere between 12.50  euros and 21 euros.
