Casa Piedra Restaurant, Cala Llonga, Ibiza

casa peidra, ibizaCasa Piedra is an innocuous but beautiful little restaurant, just 100 metres from the turning into Cala Llonga, on the old Ibiza – Santa Eulalia coastal road past the golf course, has emerged from the Spring like one of those June explosions of butterflies.

The dozen or so tables are tastefully set out in the fresh air of a lovely garden featuring a central mature olive tree, orange and lemon trees and even a grapefruit tree. It forms the perfect location to enjoy fine dining in a lush sunset environment.

casa peidra, ibizaThe tables are resplendent amongst the greenery with their pristine linen and the raison d’etre for all of this is the cuisine of new chef, Matt Hatton. Matt, from Yorkshire, cut his teeth in the multi-cultural Australian melting pot and soon became an afficiando of international cuisine.

Subsequently he honed his skills working alongside a Michelin star cast, at the Volvo Masters Golf tournament and an inspirational service at the Michelin three starred La Pergola in Rome.

casa peidra, ibizaThe couple behind this coup, and the restaurant’s unique ambience, are Ken and Louise Wells who retired to Ibiza in 2007 after 28 years running pubs and restaurants in the UK. A well earned retirement beckoned, but when Casa Piedra, their favourite local restaurant, became available they couldn’t resist the temptation of taking over such a little gem.

Almost coincidentally, they have been regular holiday visitors for the past 27 years. So smitten were they by the island that they bought property here 15 years ago. It all goes to show that distant dreams do sometimes come true.

casa peidra, ibizaTheir comment on the new venture: “We’ve created an evening eating experience for all nationalities to join our multi-cultural clientele in enjoying a truly international menu in the ambience of the garden, or the terrace overlooking the lemon grove.”

Bookings are encouraged as it is restaurant policy never to hurry people from their tables…
An extremely satisfactory evening can be acquired simply by ringing 971 196 558

    Just returned (Fri 19th June 09) from a delightful week in Calla Llonga. We had a few ideas of where to eat whilst there by reading on-line reviews, but we had no idea of the absolutely fabulous little restaurant just outside Cala LLonga which is Casa Piedra (Stone House).
    We drove by a few times and just thought it looked lovely and rustic, (NO!! plastic chairs here) we ate there the next night arrving at around 8pm to a very warm welcome. Beautiful, Spanish greenery and surrounding olive trees, we sat outside till 10.30 pm, but it was equally lovely inside and on the terrace. The service was friendly and food was out of this world, nothing was too much trouble and they were in no hurry to chase you on for the next customers arrival If you go to Calla LLonga be sure to make the effort to go to Casa Piedra. You might want to walk or take a taxi but the extra little bit of effort will be well worth it. Don’t miss out on this special part of your holiday.

    Wow!! What a fabulous restaurant just on the corner as you drive into Cala Llonga. Beautiful garden & Terrace. Excellent ambience. The staff were very friendly,helpful & professional in many ways.The bar was well stocked & spotlessly clean. The Menu is outstanding with plenty of choices, the food was freshly prepared mouth watering to the eye,beautifully presented & served efficiently.
    Highly recommended well worth a visit if you go to Ibiza!
