Since opening its doors in 1988 in an idyllic spot in a picturesque cove, Sa Caleta has been owned and run by the Pujolet family, and they take great pride in carrying forward traditional dishes from a family recipe book written by grandmother Catalina Puvil.
These days the restaurant is run by Jordi Cardona, son of original owner and founder Pepin Pujolet and his wife Victoria Baos. It offers guests a real taste of Ibizan cooking at its purest and most delicious. If you haven’t tried bullit de peix, this is the place to experience the island’s delicious traditional fish stew, served with rice and aïoli. Its lobster stew is a huge, indulgent sublime treat, and Sa Caleta is rightly regarded by locals and fans as THE place to go for seafood paella.
No visit to Sa Caleta would be complete without trying the Café Caleta. Invented by the family’s grandfather, it’s a gorgeous mix of flambéed brandy, sugar, cinnamon, orange and lemon, blended with coffee and served in a ceramic pot.
One of the few places on the island that is open every single day of the year, Sa Caleta is a must-visit for anyone wanting an authentic taste of island life. Hopefully this wonderful restaurant will remain a family-run affair for at least the next 35 years!
