Ibiza may be famous for being the clubbing capital of Europe, but there's so much more to this sophisticated and enchanting island than just techno beats and foam parties. For food lovers, the best restaurants in Ibiza serve culinary masterpieces that delight even the most discerning palate. With over a dozen Michelin-starred restaurants and plenty of excellent eateries for those mid-morning snacks or afternoon coffees, good food is in abundance on this sunny island.
If you're staying at one of our exclusive villas in Ibiza this summer and want to try the best food in Ibiza, we've collated a list of Ibiza's best restaurants for you to sample.
The Balearic islands have a rich cultural heritage, including their food. Fresh fish and seafood from the warm waters of the island's coastline form a key part of the cuisine of Ibiza. But like many islands, Ibiza has its own specialities and unique dishes, including copious use of fresh vegetables and salad ingredients, herbs, and locally-produced produce. Whether it's a formal evening taster menu or a leisurely lunch stretching out in the afternoon warmth, Ibiza’s fine dining scene is a wonderfully rich and varied experience.
As well as seafood such as wild seabass, red tuna and lobsters, exclusive restaurants in Ibiza expand their culinary offerings to include a wealth of fusion flavours, ranging from Japanese wagyu beef and caviar to exquisitely presented regional dishes such as Iberian Bellota cured ham.
Traditionally, pork and lamb are the main meat dishes on offer, and a wide selection of soups, stews and casseroles that pack in plenty of flavour. The soil is quite arid apart from the central areas of the island, where much of the food served in Ibiza's best restaurants is grown. An abundance of wild fennel, herbs and mushrooms ensures that the flavours are complex and interesting.
There is a strong Japanese influence in many of the best restaurants in Ibiza, with extensive tasting menus on offer so that guests can sample a wide range of dishes, each one created with exceptional care, passion, and flare. Accompanied by fine wines from across the world, including New World offerings alongside classic Chardonnay and Burgundy, Ibiza’s best restaurants offer as much versatility as any you'll find in European culinary epicentres such as Paris or Madrid.
As with many Mediterranean and Balearic locations, evening meals are served a little later than in northern Europe. That gives you the perfect opportunity to enjoy a leisurely sunset before taking your seat and lingering over the entrées or beginning with a selection of amuse-bouche temptations. A classic Ibizan starter is allioli, an emulsion made from crushed garlic, salt and olive oil, served with pa pages, a dense artisan bread unique to the island.
Don't expect to rush a meal – the whole point of fine dining in Ibiza is to take your time, savour each flavour for its unique properties, and enjoy the experience with friends and family.
If you’re staying at one of our onefinestay villas in Ibiza this summer, part of your Balearic experience is to seek out some of the best restaurants in Ibiza town and beyond. We’ve put together a list of some of the most exclusive eateries on the island, many of which are Michelin-starred while others have a reputation for both the exceptional quality of their food and the exemplary level of service.
Sant Antoni de Portmany
This exceptional restaurant received its first Michelin star in 2009 and was the first on the island to gain the accolade. Es Tragón is surrounded by an exquisite garden and close to the tranquil village of Sant Antoni de Portmany, it presents each dish with a story to enhance the experience. A strong combination of sustainability and tradition is the driving force behind one of the best restaurants in Ibiza, with two tasting menus and a fine cellar of wines to accompany each dish.
Bay of Paroig
On an island, you expect to visit the odd beachfront restaurant or two as part of your itinerary. However, they don't come much better than Es Torrent, a Michelin-starred restaurant in the Bay of Paroig in the south of the island. This unique setting lets you completely relax in enchanting surroundings, enjoying the 'beach hut' ambience while tasting some of the island's freshest, most delicately prepared lobster.
