Ibiza Restaurants and Where to Eat in Ibiza

Ibiza foodie guide: where locals eat and drink

Taste another side of island life with lazy beachside lunches brimming with artichoke and gambas salads, fresh-from-the-boats grilled fish and pineapple crema catalana

El Chiringuito

This rustic beach hut (chiringuito means a simple beach bar) on a tiny bay (Playa Cala Xuclar, near Portinatx) is reservation-only as it buys the day’s catch according to the number of bookings. Start with a tapas platter, move to the Ibizan tomato bread salad and have grilled fish with potatoes for the main. Perfect for a romantic dinner. 00 34 679 670 559


Es Torrent

On Playa D’es Torrent, enjoy old world elegance here as you dine with your feet in the sand, under gnarled ocean pines, overlooking a beautiful bay on the west coast of the island. Call ahead to order fresh-from-the-boat fish. Start with the grilled clams and finish with the indulgent pineapple crema catalana. estorrent.net

El Chiringuito

On Playa Es Cavallet, El Chiringuito delivers beachside glamour at its best: great people-watching plus fabulous food. The spaghetti frutti di mare for two makes an extravagant but delicious lunch. Start with the artichoke and gambas salad. elchiringuitoibiza.com

La Torre

Catch Ibiza’s most magnificent sunset view from this recently re-opened small hotel with restaurant and bar. On Cap Negret, outside San Antonio, it’s the latest venture from the Anadon family (of Café Mambo). Sip cocktails then order its signature steak with chimichurri and wrinkled potatoes. latorreibiza.com (pictured top)
