Friday 11th June 2021 – CARLOS LÓPEZ with Mike Smith
The geographer and climatologist Jonathan Gómez Cantero who presents the weather on TV in Castilla la Mancha has predicted that it is “a matter of time” before the new restaurant in Segundo Montañar de Xàbia is destroyed from maritime storms, due to its proximity, along with the homes that surround it, to the water’s edge.
Gómez Cantero spent this weekend in Xàbia, and left this ominous message about the future of the restaurant on his Twitter account, together with two images from the rocks: “In Jávea (Alicante), after several storms that have destroyed the coastline, a newly built restaurant intends to defy everything by settling where the waves have reached several times. The promoter says he complies, but come on, it’s only a matter of time before it is destroyed“.

El promotor dice que cumple, pero vamos, es cuestión de tiempo verlo destrozado. https://t.co/PE4xPBy7Z9 pic.twitter.com/FNT4QVnaK9
The presenter is also an expert in natural risks and climate change, and visited Xàbia and the region in search of “national gastronomic experiences”. And as he could not otherwise, one of those experiences was enjoyed in the two Michelin star restaurant of Xàbia,Bon Amb. There he met the team led by Pablo Catalá and Alberto Ferruz as well as the award-winning sommelier, Enrique García Albelda.
Meanwhile, at the “endangered” restaurant on the coast, workers are busy completing the last details of the place, which already has a name. It will be called – or so it says at the entrance – Thalassa.
