Roca Tranquila Restaurant is full of light and culinary energy

R0013060  I had a power lunch at Roca Tranquila on the Costa del Sol last week-end and swore I would be back with lots of time and an empty stomach. This place is one of the best restaurants I have been to in a long time.

I loved the location high up in the hills, with stunning views of the Mediterranean sea. When one enters one stumbles into the Andalucían kitchen where the food is prepared in front of your eyes by the Danish chef Kasper Nielsen.

Kasper has been living on the Costa del Sol for several years and is passionate about Spanish food. But Spanish food for Kasper's comes with a twist, for example the scallop which was superbly fresh and perfectly cooked came surrounded by a vanilla flavoured olive oil, which provided a very interesting contrast. The flavour from a desert in a starter is a surprise anytime. I also had a wonderful salmon soup, where the soup part was so light, lean and tasty it was like tasting milk with massive amount of flavour, with perfectly cooked chunks of salmon. It was a superb soup.

R0013090 What I loved most was the light, this was probably due to the fact I had been starving for it all winter and when I saw it coming through the big windows in the old farmhouse with 60cm think walls, breaking and creating shadows, I was sold. The place opened in the summer of 2008 and is being discovered by locals as well as visitors, I hope it soon will be discovered by the folks of Guide Michelin, as this one is worth a detour, with that I do not mean two stars, for that they still need to push, but it has potential.

If you are in the area, do stop by, and take lots of time, it will not be wasted.

Hey Christian,

Didn't know we had the honour of you visiting our sunny coast.
Roca Tranquila is one of our best restaurants here, so you made the right pick!
I am a resident here, and if you come to Costa del Sol, then give me a call, it would be great to sit down and talk about the old Nokia days!

Take care!

"Roca tranquila" means "calm rock" a curious name for a restaurant.
