Hotspot: Restaurant Elements, Cala Benirras Ibiza

Grilled Fish we ordered at restaurant Elements, cala Benirras Ibiza

On Ibiza you have so many nice restaurants, some in the little villages or in Eivissa city and some on the beach. When we visited Cala Benirras, to see the famous drum players (see my blog about the drum players on Cakesandpumps), we were too early.

I mostly eat kellogg Special K with pure Chocolate every day, but that’s mostly because I’m lazy in the morning and for lunch, specially when I have to go to work.

It’s not that you have to sit next to the bread all the time, but you have to stay close to do some work now and then;-).
