So let’s look at what’s on offer at Cone Club, where dessert seems like the perfect end to an evening that’s been spent sipping sangria, chatting with friends and looking out on the dusky pink horizon. Here, it’s true that the atmosphere is shamelessly relaxed, but that attitude doesn’t extend to the dessert menu where sugar and spice and all things nice are taken very seriously indeed. There are five desserts listed on the Mediterranean-inspired menu (alongside some daily specials) and each one has its own, unique merits.
The fruit panaché perhaps sounds like the most simple option available – but not at Cone Club, where freshly sliced, seasonal and juicy fruit is elevated thanks to the inclusion of a watermelon mint soup – two flavours that perfectly complement one another. Next, there’s the deliciously creamy baked cheesecake (what menu is complete without one?) served with a rich and zesty red fruit coulis. Moving onto trickier executions, there’s the almond panna cotta – notoriously difficult to get right, we think ours is perfection, thanks to the addition of toasted Ibizan almonds (entire orchards of them grow on the island in spring) and the citrus kick provided by the confit lemon.
