Ibiza is the place to be when you’re hungry. You could spend an entire month on the island and still only experience just a taste of the best restaurants in Ibiza.
Local and international chefs have created a diverse and thriving foodie paradise – so much so, that it’s harder to decide where NOT to go. Good thing we’ve compared the paellas, views, cocktails and tapas to create our very own gourmet guide. Ready your tastebuds, they’re about to go on quite the adventure…
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 full beach club guide to discover the best beachside breakfasts and most nourishing lunches – all with a healthy dose of vitamin sea.
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, and 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.
We always recommend a visit to the picturesque Santa Gertudis (you can read our full guide here), in recent years some exciting new restaurant openings have made it a culinary destination in itself. Can Mimosa opened their doors in 2021 and have quickly established themselves amongst our favourite restaurants in Ibiza. For some of the most exciting food and cocktails on the island, OVERALL is an experience not to be missed.
Es Tragon has Ibiza its first Michelin star in 2020, followed by La Gaia by Óscar Molina in late 2021, and more recently in 2023 Etxeko by Martin Berasategui – 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 to make the most of your visit.
