Beach restaurants Ibiza

There’s no better way to start your day than with the beach at your feet, a freshly squeezed smoothie, huevos (eggs) and pancakes, so we head to one of the island’s incredible all-day beach clubs, such as Beachouse, Aiyanna or Amante.  With excellent food, live DJs, refreshing cocktails and sumptuous sunbeds, you’ll be settling in for an unforgettable day at the best restaurants in Ibiza. Read our guide to discover the best beachside breakfasts and most nourishing lunches – all with a healthy dose of vitamin sea.

Long, luxurious lunches

Salt-baked seabass, grilled octopus, garlic Ibiza red prawns – lunch in Ibiza is either by the sea, from the sea, or both. We love dining on traditional Ibicenco fare at family run establishments like Sa Caleta, Ses Boques and Es Torrent, but you’ll find the perfect place to while away the afternoon in our gourmet guide.

For one of the trendiest new places on the island that opened in 2021 make your way to Jondal on the Southern Coast for sensational seafood by celebrated chef Rafael Zafra.

Foodie Santa Gertrudis

We always recommend a visit to the picturesque Santa Gertudis, in recent years some exciting new restaurant openings have made it a culinary destination in itself. Both Can Mimosa and Olivia’s opened their doors in 2021 and have quickly established themselves amongst our favourite restaurants in Ibiza.

Dinner with a difference

From rich Italian food in the countryside at Can Domingo or La Paloma to the exciting Cotton Sushi Lab (new for 2022) in Ibiza town. We’ve unearthed the hidden tables, tasted the tapas, pigged-out on pizza and distilled our favourites into this year’s Niche Travel guide.

Michelin star Ibiza

Es Tragon has earned Ibiza its first Michelin star in 2020, followed by La Gaia by Óscar Molina in late 2021 – though, in our opinion, many of the island’s restaurants would be deserving of the award. If you’re craving a gastronomic adventure, make sure you read our guide before booking and make the most of your visit.
