I’ll be honest, it’s been years since I ventured to the sunset strip to watch a sunset and I can’t recall ever choosing to dine there but our recent trip to Kasbah was a delectable surprise. Perched on a relaxed stretch of coastline just a couple of minutes north of the madness at Cafe Mambo, Kasbah’s location alone is reason enough to stop and have a bite or a refreshing cocktail. We call ahead and reserve the best table in the house for 8.30pm just in time to kick back and enjoy a nice glass of wine with the stunning sunset.
The atmosphere is relaxed and the little touches in decor and presentation (dishes served on driftwood, a collection of shells at the centre of the table) complement the overall chilled nautical vibe Kasbah have cultivated. There are both a la carte and tapas options on the menu so we decide to do a mixture of both and opt for a selection of tapas to start followed by a couple of mains.
The food here is hearty and tasty, taking classic tapas and mains and adding a Kasbah flourish. We order deep fried brie, the Galician style octopus, chicken and chorizo skewers and a plate of stacked patatas bravas. For the main course we share the grilled salmon fillet on a bed of beetroot rice drizzled with a citrus and mango dressing, and the recently added fillet steak served with chunky chips and roasted cherry tomatoes.
The desserts at Kasbah are all homemade and no trip to dine here should end before you’ve at least shared one. We take two! – a delicious raspberry New York style cheesecake and (my favourite) a white chocolate mousse on a biscuit base.
Good food in a relaxed corner of San Antonio’s sunset strip. The Kasbah team have also branched out with a second restaurant in Cala de Bou. For reservations at either call +34 971 96 08 93.
