Rating: Excellent, and right by the beach
You’d think that restaurants right by the port and the main beach wouldn’t be up to snuff — but far from it.
Located right next to the main church at the edge of the beach.
The extra story gives it a nice view and a great atmosphere. Of course up the hill are far better views, but who wants to hike up there in the middle of a beach day?
Caprese. Fresh local buffalo mozzarella and tomatoes.
Fried zucchini blossoms stuffed with ricotta cheese.
Crudo. Italian sashimi. Certainly a bit of Japanese influence (soy sauce, wasabi), but with Italian touches too like the fruit and olive oil. Very nice fish with bright flavors.
Seafood ravioli. Housemade ravioli stuffed with fish and covered with shrimps in a gauzetto sauce. I love this tomato, garlic, white wine reduction sauce.
We didn’t have an extensive meal at La Cambusa, but everything we did try had a really nice polish to it, above average for sure. If I get back anytime soon I’ll have to go for dinner. Or if I finish inventing my Star Trek Transporter, then I’m all over it.
