Not a lot of lobster…DSC00725


El Cantal is located at number 16 on the grandly named Avenida Isla de Formentera which is the street leading down to the port of Calpe. The restaurant is modern and functional with stunning views.DSC00729


Their menu del día is priced at €16.90 but does not include any drinks.There were three starters, the first being a cold soup -cream of melon with port. It was so sweet that it could have been served as a dessert. This was followed by deliciously fresh calamares á la Andaluza and salad. The starters were accompanied by the reliable Rueda Verdejo called Menade (€14).DSC00732
For main course two of us shared paella with lobster, well, half a lobster. The others had grilled entrecote and two of the members were very satisfied with their choice, however the third luncher found his steak to be decidedly chewy and salty. Our generous host produced a Ribero del Duero 2011 Crianza called Romantica (€15) which certainly added to our enjoyment.
The desserts included profiteroles, brownies and ice cream and when the wines, coffees and brandies were included our lunch cost a hefty €33.40 p.p.
