Best place to buy fresh fish and meat for BBQ?!?

Hi, we are travelling to Cala n Porter for the 1st time in August, and are staying in a Villa. We hope to be having many BBQ's and I love big prawns, steak maybe even a lobster!! Please could you tell me the best place would be to buy fresh fish and meats?? Also, after the BBQs we will be heading out looking for cocktails...any good cocktail bars that are recommended?!

Oh a daft question I know, but in general what is the weather like end of August beginning of September??

Thanks in advance :-)

The supermarkets in CnP are fairly well stocked with BBQ meats in the chillers but none of them have a butchers' counter. For fresh fish you would have to take a trip to the fish market in Mahon and, while you're there, the big market is just next door and has loads of butchers and fresh produce.

Aloha has a wonderful but lethal cocktail menu and most of the bars will do the usual cocktails, mojitos, daiquiris and such like.

I forgot about the big supermarkets in the polygon just past the airport but I still think the fish market in Mahon is more fun. The fish are so fresh that they're still moving.

Mahon fish market is brilliant-just time purchase and take a bag to hold ice to keep fresh in the heat. Sword fish steaks cut to size and prawns,crabs etc

Fresh meat market is 50 m away. Sant Lluis next village to CnP has a traditional butcher opposite the church. Spar in CnP sells Ses Tanques brand - which is the locally sourced meat -this is excellent quality and taste ,much better than anything I have tasted in UK for years.

Caroliner meant Poligno, The Binipreu supermarket on the Poligno (impossible to miss) has a fresh fish area and is a 15min drive away.

Sorry Sandstroller this looks like tit for tat but it's my turn to correct you. The next village to CnP is Sant Climent .
