We say goodbye to the season at Can Pep: “Thanks for everything, see you in 2023”

One more season is coming to an end at Can Pep restaurant on Sunday, October 30. They have been months of work, enthusiasm, laughter and sharing with you love in each meat or fish served, affection in each dessert prepared and simplicity and closeness in each step that the service requires, from the kitchen to the customer’s table.

We have been very happy to receive you in our home. We saw how you enjoyed the fresh fish and the colorful salads; the exact point of our rice dishes and the soft aroma of the meat on the stone, the star dish of the season.

We have seen you smile with your family and friends while you toasted with the delicious wines from our menu or said goodbye to dinner savoring strawberries with cream and ice cream or chocolate cake.

The terrace, so beautiful and spacious in the Port d’Antratx, was your nighttime refuge after a day in Camp de Mar or Sant Elm.  It has also been your place to talk after enjoying the Nit de l’Art at CCA Andratx, always with interesting and innovative proposals.

Andratx has everything you need in Mallorca. Beach, sunsets, markets, lighthouses and the exuberant nature of Sa Dragonera. It has been and is a natural enclave that inspires writers and artists for its beauty and historical richness.

For a few months, we will miss you. But near spring we will meet again so that you can enjoy our products from the sea and the Mallorcan countryside and the simple and tasty recipes that characterize us.

We say goodbye until 2023. We will open our house more renovated and fresh, with innovative proposals and with the quality of service that you deserve. See you soon!

banco plástico reciclado andratx

Andratx unveils a plastic marine litter bench

Port d’Andratx is one of the ports participating in Coca-Cola’s Circular Seas programme. A project to clean up the coasts and seabed, raise public awareness and develop the circular economy in Spain and Portugal. In its fifth edition, it has focused on finding options to give a second life to marine litter. The aim is to find solutions to the dumping of plastics in the seas.

Andratx’s participation in this programme shows how it has managed to give a second life to non-PET plastic. This includes the remains of nets, bags or very degraded and mixed film, which until now it was not known how to recycle. The result is 15 benches, each one handcrafted from recycled plastic, 30-50% of which is non-PET plastic. The origin is the marine waste collected by more than 500 fishermen from 104 boats in fifteen Spanish ports.

One of these recycled plastic benches is already in Port d’Andratx. Specifically, it is located next to the Ports Illes Balears office in the municipality. Hundreds of kilos of rubbish have been processed to make it. “This material has been obtained thanks to the efforts of the fishermen. They are all volunteers who make a great effort to separate the waste on the boat, take it to land, dump it and ensure that the waste is properly managed,” says Estíbaliz López-Samaniego, project manager of the Asociación Vertidos Cero (Zero Waste Association).

In the elaboration process, AIMPLAS receives the plastic mixture from the ports, conditions it and grinds it, at which stage it is passed on to the NGO Plàstic Preciós, which transforms it into sheets and handcrafts a bank containing 30% of marine plastic, approximately 13.5 kilos. The bench has a QR code that makes it easy to follow the traceability of the material used.

The plastic bench in Port d’Andratx is an example of how to make the most of this waste and promote the circular economy.

the crown en andratx

The Crown is being filmed in Andratx

The popular series The Crown is being filmed in Andratx. Several locations have been chosen by the film crew to develop the plot of the sixth season of the Netflix drama. The actors who play Lady Di and Prince William – Elizabeth Debicki and Rufus Kampa – have taken a boat trip around the waters of Port d’Andratx. The images of the filming have been captured by the newspapers Ultima Hora and Diario de Mallorca, which have also focused on Dodi Al-Fayed’s character in the series, played by Khalid Abdalla.

Other locations chosen for the filming of The Crown in Andratx are Villa California and the jetty of the Villa Castillo de Mallorca. However, in the Netflix series these sequences will emulate being in Sainz-Tropez, where Dodi Al-Fayed’s father, Mohamed, will play host to the couple.

Andratx thus serves as a set to immortalise Diana and Dodi’s last months of romance in The Crown series. The couple took refuge in Sainz-Tropez, where they attracted the attentive gaze of the paparazzi before the fateful and well-remembered accident that took place in 1997. Although miles away from the real-life setting, Andratx perfectly evokes the original setting: the Mediterranean Sea.

The filming of The Crown in Andratx is yet another reason to visit the town and follow in the footsteps of the characters in the series.

At Can Pep restaurant we would be delighted to offer the best of our gastronomy to the British royal family, even if it is their fictional characters. Just as we have done with other famous people who have visited us, such as Shawn Mendes, Pilou Asbaek, Nacho Vidal… Famous or not famous, the truth is that at Can Pep, on the front line of Port d’Andratx, anyone can taste the best of local gastronomy with fresh and local products. Come and enjoy this incredible setting while we serve you the best dishes.

temporada llampuga can pep

The llampuga season in Mallorca: our recipes

The llampuga season in Mallorca begins for the island’s fishermen at the end of August. This means that days later, consumers can find this delicious product in Mallorcan fish markets and restaurants. The llampuga is one of the most prized fish in the local gastronomy. Its fishing coincides with the first storms that bring the change of season. In fact, this is one of the theories behind its name, according to which it comes from the Catalan ‘llampegar’ (to flash). In Spanish, it is also known as ‘dorado’, ‘pez limón’ or simply ‘lampuga’.

In the restaurant Can Pep in Port d’Andratx, as with the raor, the llampuga season means its inclusion in the menu. It could not be otherwise, as the kitchen is supplied with local products. And in Port d’Andratx fishing is a tradition, so this delicious fish could not be missing from the selection of fresh fish in the kitchens of Can Pep.

Recipes for llampuga in Mallorca

Can Pep knows a thousand and one ways of cooking this fish. Among the llampuga recipes on the menu are grilled llampuga, Mallorcan-style llampuga, pickled llampuga, llampuga with peppers… In short, diners can practically choose how they want to enjoy this local product. The photo in this article, for example, shows a spectacular llampuga tartare served at Can Pep.

Tasty and healthy, this fish inhabits both the Mediterranean and Caribbean waters. In the Mediterranean, they do not usually exceed half a metre in length, while in the Caribbean they can even exceed one metre. Thus, the dolphinfish is considered both a white fish and a blue fish, depending on its age. Those caught in Mallorcan waters contain between 2% and 5% fat and are a healthy and tasty product.

And for you, what is your favourite recipe for llampuga? At Can Pep we cook it to your taste. We are waiting for you in Port d’Andratx.

gastronomía de andratx frito

Typical dishes of Andratx’s gastronomy

The gastronomy of Andratx is rich and varied. From exquisite local products to irresistible delicacies from the sea. A Mediterranean cuisine that combines peasant and seafaring traditions. The latter is perhaps the most deeply rooted in the municipality, which has a marked history of fishermen and a passion for fishing in Port de Andratx.

Numerous fish and shellfish are present in some of the typical dishes of the gastronomy of Andratx. The restaurant Can Pep, in the heart of Port de Andratx, is well aware of the history of the municipality and its culinary traditions. That is why its dishes reflect the Mediterranean essence of a port located in an enclave of great beauty.

Typical dishes of Andratx’s gastronomy

Sopas mallorquinas (Mallorcan soups): The main ingredients are farmhouse bread and vegetables. Although it is called soup, the bread absorbs the broth and makes the presentation of this typical dish less liquid.

Arròs de peix: this is a fish rice dish. A dish worthy of the natural harbour of Andratx.

Tumbet: a dish made with different vegetables such as peppers, aubergines, potatoes… accompanied by tomato sauce. Traditionally cooked in an earthenware casserole or ‘greixonera’ in Mallorcan.

Frito de matanzas: pork is the main ingredient in this dish. This dish was created to make the most of the products of the traditional slaughter.

And to finish off, sweet dishes typical of the Andratx’s gastronomy.

Greixonera de Pasqua: typical of Easter. A dish made with milk, sponge cake, eggs, lemon and cinnamon.
Ensaimada: The sweet most associated with Mallorcan gastronomy. It consists of a sweetened, fermented and baked dough. Lard is used to make it.

Llet amb figuera: The fig tree branch adds a particular flavour to this recipe based on milk and sweetened with honey or sugar.

Would you like to try the gastronomy of Andratx? At Can Pep we offer you the best of typical Mallorcan dishes. You can see the local suggestions included in our menu through this link. Bon profit!

excrusion barco port andratx

The best boat excursions from Port d’Andratx

Port d’Andratx is a very privileged port. It is the most important natural harbour in the western part of Mallorca. Its geographical location means that many visitors are attracted by its landscape, tradition and gastronomy. Moreover, the economy of this corner of Mallorca revolves around the maritime industry: fishing, water sports and above all the rental of recreational boats (yachts, catamarans, sailing boats, boats without a licence or programmed excursions). Restaurant Ca’n Pep recommends the best boat trips from Port d’Andratx.  Whether you are thinking of renting a boat, or if you prefer to hire an excursion, we offer you the best routes and boat trips from Port d’Andratx.

Boat trips from Port d’Andratx

Port d’Andratx offers a wide range of boat trips. From this port you can find some wonderful routes to spend the day and discover this area in the west of Mallorca. We always recommend that you check the weather forecast or consult with experts before going on any sea excursion.

  • Port d’Andratx – Sant Elm – La Dragonera: This excursion is designed to be done during a whole day in a medium or large boat, rented with or without a skipper. The ideal way to do this route is to leave Port d’Andratx early in the morning and moor at midday on the coast of Sant Elm and Cap Blanc. From there, you will be able to enjoy impressive views of the Dragonera Natural Park. Afterwards, you can take a route around the island of Dragonera. You will be able to admire the cliffs on the northwest face of the island of Dragonera and appreciate the Fer de Llebeig and the Far de la Tramuntana, which guard the island. On the way back we recommend that you stop at Platja dels Conills to watch the sunset.
  • Excursion to Dragonera from Sant Elm: If you are only thinking of visiting Dragonera, we recommend that you choose the Margarita Ferry option. It is actually a regular line that connects Sant Elm and Dragonera. This is the best option for those who wish to spend the day on the island and walk along its paths and then take a dip in its crystal clear waters. We remind you that there are no toilets at Dragonera, so you will have to take water and food with you.
  • Cala d’Egos and Cala en Basset: If you have a medium or large boat, this is an ideal route to spend the day. In the morning you can leave Port d’Andratx in the direction of Sant Elm. Passing Cap Blanc and leaving Dragonera on your left, you will reach Cala en Basset. A beautiful cove that represents one of the best marine conservation areas in the Tramuntana. It has spectacular views of the mountains and crystal clear waters full of life to contemplate with your snorkelling goggles. If the weather is not good, as the Tramunatana and Llebeig winds sometimes blow, preventing good sailing in this area, we recommend going to Cala d’Egos. It is very close to Port d’Andratx and almost always has calm waters, as it is sheltered.
  • Caló d’es Monjo and les Illes Malgrats: if you wish to moor in a magical cove, this is Caló des Monjo. Very close to Port d’Andratx, it can be easily reached in the direction of the coast of Calvià. After passing Camp de Mar, you will find a water inlet inland that forms this cove in the shape of a pond with a small rock in the centre. It is designed for small or medium-sized boats, as there is not much space in the cove. If you want to continue the day’s sailing, we recommend a stroll through the waters of the Illes Malgrats between Santa Ponça and Port Adriano. The sunset on these islets is spectacular.
  • Cala Llamp or Cala d’Egos for small boats or boats without a licence: If you have decided to rent a small boat and you want to make the most of the day, there is no need to go far away. In the area of Port d’Andratx you have some impressive coves. Cala Llamp is very close to the exit of Port d’Andratx and is ideal to visit with a small boat. You can also take a dip and explore the marine life in its blue waters, so take your snorkelling gear with you! Another good option for this type of boat is to visit Cala d’Egos, as it is a cove that is very difficult to access on foot. The ease of getting there by boat and the pine forest that surrounds these waters will make it an ideal option to go on this type of boat to enjoy the day.

You already know the best boat trips from Port d’Andratx that the restaurant Ca’n Pep offers you. We invite you to come and visit us after enjoying a day at sea to taste the best Mediterranean food.
