Definitive Dining At Restaurant La Casita.
There are some beautiful restaurants on Ibiza and one that certainly fits into that category is La Casita. Situated in Urbanisation Valverde, between Sta Eulalia and Cala Llonga, this restaurant is an oasis of calm and relaxation and it’s difficult to decide which is the most relaxing sound, the chirping of the crickets in the surrounding pine trees or the trickling of the fountains in the garden pond. When you arrive you are immediately struck by the beauty of this finca restaurant with its pristinely set tables and the tranquillity of the garden terrace, the perfect place for that pre dinner glass of wine or a House Cocktail. A full A La Carte menu is available offering some of the finest Mediterranean and International dishes you’ll find anywhere. Gastronomically inventive dishes are Austrian owner/chef Johannes’s speciality. Cream of green fig soup with green pepper and spinach. Salad with lobster, grilled scallops, with a dressing of mango and balsamic vinegar. Carpaccio’s of meat or fish. Crepes filled with spinach and shrimps on a leek sauce, to name just a few of his exquisite creations. If you are more of traditionalist then select one of the succulent steaks, perhaps the fillet steak in a raspberry sauce, served with gratin potatoes and fresh local vegetables.
There are dishes to share; the Chateaubriand is a must, or a Fondue, always an intimate way to dine. If you are a Pasta type you won’t be disappointed with the dishes on offer. The speciality ice creams and crepe confections are irresistibly superb. At the weekends you can opt for the “Menu de Desgustación”. This menu changes according to the season and availability of mainly locally produced ingredients. There is normally a choice of three “Wines of the week” priced at around 18€, or you can select your particular favourite from the extensive selection on offer. Johannes and his staff are efficient, friendly and always on hand to assist you with your selections should you need them. If you are planning a wedding, christening or any other special occasion then the purpose built pavilion with its central fountain is perhaps one of the most delightful venues you’ll find. La Casita also offers a catering service that will bring this same quality and individual flair to your private party anywhere on the island.
