Juan y Andrea, Formentera

This weekend, I went to Formentera with a few friends. We arrived late Friday night and stayed until yesterday afternoon. Everyone has told me that Formentera is the one place in the Mediterranean where the water looks like the Caribbean, light, turquoise blue. And it is just as beautiful as everyone says!

We went to the beach next to Juan y Andrea, which tends to cater to the Ibiza crowd that takes boats over for the day. The food is good, fresh, and the atmosphere is quite fun. We ate like kings!

We started off sharing some fried calamari and roasted padron peppers.

Then everyone branched out…

My seabass was delicious, perfectly cooked and seasoned with a little salt and pepper.

And Alicia got the jamon iberico and melon

After a little espresso and a shot of limoncello, we were ready to go back to the beach chairs and sit in the sun.

After the beach, we headed to a certain beach where everyone sits on the rocks and quietly watches the sun set. Amazing!

For dinner, we headed to Chezz Gerdi. A friend had recommended the restaurant… and it was perfect. It is just outside the town of Es Pujols. To get there, you have to walk along a dark boardwalk for about five minutes… at night, you can see the stars, hear the surf – it’s magical. And the food is great as well.

More jamon iberico for everyone as a starter, along with a delicious fritura mixta (mixed fried fish and seafood – lightly fried and not greasy at all).

I then had the seafod gnocchi, which was served with prawns and langoustine in a light tomato sauce. Delicious!
