We drove up the mountain on a family pilgrimage to Es Verger which is renowned across the world for its no nonsense rustic cooking and specifically, the lamb and incredible views across the Island. We would have hiked to get an appetite but that wasn't...More

There are not many places you can go and be happy sitting in a farm yard (sheep, hay, and poo included) and enjoy one of the best meals. As everyone has pointed out the menu is basic, but when cooked so well it can be....More

The restaurant is an old rustic place but a wonderful experience especially if you are planning to see Castel d'Alaro. The lamb was very good and one of the best I have tasted in a very long time. I would start with a soup "Sopas"...More
