It has become our family tradition to spend our last day of the summer holidays at the chilled out Mango’s Beach Bar in Cap d’Agde. We sit with our feet in the sand, gazing out over the Mediterranean Sea, and enjoy gorgeous food and freshly shaken cocktails. Followed by a dip in the sea of course! School always seems so far away when we’re in this relaxing spot!
Mango’s Beach Bar is one of a kind. The bar and restaurant is completely decorated in an eclectic Cuban style. The many colourful corners immediately invite you to sit down and relax. So that’s what we did. While the kids played on the beach, Chéri and I ordered some drinks and food. The simple but delicious menu had an enticing choice of salads, quesadillas, tapas and Mango’s signature dishes.
Blink of an eye
We decided on a decadent Niçoise salad, along with two tapas platters. The first platter had a wide variety of well-known tapas (i.e. tortilla, chorizo, olives, chicken wings, gambas, salad). And the second platter offered a tempting array of seafood including tuna rillettes, smoked salmon, gambas, marinated anchovies and more. We all dove into the food, and the platters were empty in the blink of an eye.
The kids went back to the beach after our feast, but Chéri and I both ordered a dessert to top off our lunch. And I can tell you that the creamy banoffee pie style panna cotta went down very well as well. If you’re into partying, then you might also want to keep an eye on Mango’s agenda, as they know how to throw a fiësta. It’s especially worth adding these dates to your calendar: the 21st of June for the famous Fête de la Musique and the 15th of August for L’Assomption. And then of course, there is Mango’s end of summer closing party. This epic event is always held on a secret date at the end of the season, revealed a few days before on their Facebook page.
