La Boca


We have found here in Spain, and in particular Torrevieja, a new appreciation for the simple life. A lifestyle, that is Torrevieja. Our day may be sitting at an outdoor cafe enjoying a Pulpo al Ajillo and a glass of Rioja for our mid day snack. It is simple food. Octopus, Olive Oil, Parsley, Garlic. Nothing more. It reflects the quality of life we live. That is why the quality of the ingredients become the art. Not all garlic is created the same.

La Boca has the perfect location. On the promenade of Los Locos. Families and friends walk by for the paseo on the promenade every night, it is a parade of happiness, a parade of Spain. Sitting on the edge of the Mediterranean with a southerly view we can watch the moon travel across the sky as we enjoy a multi-course meal. This evening was also the one year anniversary of living here in Torrevieja.

Restaurante La Boca is a beautiful place for a romantic meal and even though there is a street front with cars, the atmosphere here works. You get the peacefulness of the environment, the view, the Sea, but then too you get the energy of the city around you. And as you can see they have an appropriate decanter for a good wine. There is also a very nice and elegant inside dining room.

Escalopines de foie de pato
Salmon Ravioli

These were the first two dishes. The evening has possibilities! We both enjoyed the first course options.

Duck Breast / Sweet Potato puree / Asparagus / Croquettes / Sherry port wine sauce

The duck was delicious in every way and the flavors all worked well together. As you can see this dish featured a variety of texture as well as tastes.

Sous Vide Rolled Leg of Lamb / rosemary and garlic roasted new potatoes / parsnip puree / caramelized shallots / cranberry sauce

The lamb was excellent, cooked perfectly medium rare and the fruit sauce paired wonderfully with the gaminess of the meat.

And now onto the desserts.

Crepe con arandanos y salsa vainilla
Helado mixto

La Boca is a good choice for a nice romantic evening looking at the sea while enjoying well prepared thoughtful food. I like the fact that they change their menu on a regular basis so on each visit there is always a new adventure waiting for you.

About XPLORE FILM and Sip & Stay

The Art of Life

Tony and Terri-Lynn met in 1987 as teenagers. In 1991 they were married.  Tony has been a professional musician his entire life and spent the 90’s touring and releasing albums.  In 2001 the couple left the cities and moved to a small community on the Oregon coast. This is where they fell into television production and film making. In 2004 Makai Ohana Productions was founded and the couple produced advertising and creative content for hundreds of tourism related businesses and government entities in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Realizing the industry was evolving towards the internet they re-branded the business in 2012 to Xplore Film.  This company would now be an international business producing films world wide as well as an NGO in West Africa where the couple provides clean water boreholes, scholarships and even a prosthetic hand project.

In 2018 Tony and Terri-Lynn with their dog Bisque Kitt packed the belongings they could carry on their backs and flew to Spain. They bought a home and planned to spend equal time between the two countries running the business.  Then Covid hit and the world closed.  By 2020 they realized Spain, and specifically Torrevieja was now home.  They bought a sailboat and started to create a life on the Costa Blanca of music, film, events and community.
