Review on The Village Cafe
The Village Cafe is set in the small coastal village of Deia, nestling amongst the olive and orange groves with the stunning backdrop of the Tramuntana mountains. The village is well known for its many musical and literary residents since the 1800's, including the English poet, novelist and scholar Robert Graves. The cosy stone cottage is very simple and rustic set on a side street off the main road, and there is nothing more idyllic than to sit on their quaint terrace surrounded by colourful flowers, whilst taking in the spectacular views.
Making excellent use of fresh locally sourced ingredients, dishes are simple in concept, sharply executed and bursting with natural flavour. The antipasto wooden platter with its selection of artesian cold cuts, cheeses and vegetables is a good choice or maybe a starter of peppered duck liver pâté served with fig chutney, date balsamic and toasted bread. Main courses take in forest mushroom ravioli served in sage butter and their homemade burger with foie gras is particularly recommended. If you still have room for dessert, finish with organic almond cake and almond ice cream.
There is a concise wine list featuring local wines, a lovely selection of cocktails and a very tasty gin menu. Service is laid back and warm and if you are visiting Deia, The Village Cafe is not to be missed.
