Captains International Tapas and Restaurant
Recently refurbished with still more to come, CAPTAIN’S Mojacar  is  now in its 16th year since Jonathan Eldred, “Jon” took it over, having  run several other restaurants in Mojacar during his 28 years here in  Spain.

CAPTAIN’S Mojacar  has had various styles from the time  Jon took over. A music bar; a sports bar, a bar/cafe and now it has  evolved over the last 3 years into a restaurant serving tapas, snack  meals and full a la carte with a reputation as one of the best  restaurants in the area.

The restaurant has obtained a certificate of excellence for the last 3 years from tripadvisor

Overlooking  the sea from its raised position, the terrace offers open air dining in  the summer while it can be enclosed during the winter.

The restaurant also has 3 tables outside for smokers.
Jon has been cooking since his days at school after which he went to  catering college in Buxton where he studied the full range of Hotel  Management and Catering. Via The Britannia Hotel in Manchester and The  White House in Prestbury, Jon then took over the Skillet Restaurant in  Hayfield for some years before coming to Mojacar where he had spent  holidays for 12 years.

Jon has a passion for freshly prepared food.

There are  no frozen or packet meals at CAPTAIN’S Mojacar!  Growing some of his own  vegetables and using fresh herbs and using local suppliers, Jon  produces dishes to satisfy all tastes. There is always a freshly made  range of 10 tapas which constantly change and the menu has 9 starters, 5  salads and 21 main dishes to choose from.

The restaurant  specialises in fresh fish bass, bream, plaice, salmon, langoustines.  whitebait, calamares and many more. His own special dish is Trois  Etoilles made with strips of fillet steak, chicken and prawns in his own  sauce. As Jon’s wife, Hind, is from Morocco, there is naturally a  Moroccan influence on some of the dishes and tapas like Black Eyed Peas  and with Jon’s travels to Istanbul, he uses spices and ingredients to  produce Turkish style tapas such as Dolma and Turkish Lamb but with his  own twist.

Hind  makes  the  apple  tart  with  cinnamon  and  raisins  which   is  many  customers’ favourite and soon there will be homemade ice  creams with flavours such as mango. This year Jon is helped in the  kitchen by Steve, and as usual out front Jon’s father Mike and Hind will  be serving the customers.
With menus in English, Spanish, French and German and with staff  speaking those languages, most customers are catered for. There is also a  special children’s menu including chicken, fish, meat and pizza.
With a varied wine list including wines from Australia and Germany,  plus a fine local red from the Alpujarras near Almeria, there is  an  extensive drinks menu with many premium gins, vodkas and tonics.
So why not enjoy a dining experience at CAPTAIN’S Mojacar overlooking the sea with good food and a relaxing drin
