This post is in a similar vein to my london brunch guide. A continually updated guide to eating out in Ibiza. Unlike the rest of Spain, it's very easy to find vegetarian/vegan food without having to live off patatas bravas and queso, delicious though that is.
L to R: Dalt Vila, Passion Cafe, Amante, La Paloma Cafe
Cappuccino in Marina Botafoch. Beautiful, unobstructed views of Ibiza town and Dalt Vila.
Passion Cafe Lots of salads, juices and smoothies. There are several passion cafes on the island but I think the best spot for lunch is probably Santa Eulalia. Highly recommend the salads, the turmeric lassi and the coffee & walnut smoothie.
La Paloma - I'm featuring this place twice. It's equally beautiful by day and night. It might just be my favourite restaurant of ALL time. Incredible mediterranean food served in the most picturesque garden, it's ACTUAL heaven. The food is really fresh, they grow some of their own ingredients and make everything on site including freshly baked focaccia 😱
I'm still mourning the loss of Menjabe in San An, I hope one day it returns. The best hummus and falafel I have ever eaten.
Can't do a guide and not mention the Heladeria in San Jordi. It's always a mystery as to if it will be open or not but it serves the best gelato on the island
L to R : La Bodega, La Paloma, Experimental Beach
La Bodega hidden away down the cobbled streets of Eivissa, I return to this little bodega every trip for plates of tapas and chilled rose wine. Book in advance and ask for an outside spot. The padron peppers, provolone cheese and patatas braves are a must. Finish with a shot of herbias, a Balearic liquor
La Paloma just as magical at night as it is by day. They bring the menu over on a giant easel board, the dishes vary seasonally but always feature incredible the best quality ingredients.
Es Verges best pizza on the island. Super chilled vibes, great spot for a casual dinner.
Amante stunning beach restaurant in the secluded spot of Sol den Serra. Fresh, mediterranean dishes a plenty. I don't know where they get their goats cheese from but it is insanely good
Experimental Beach So many choices here, tapas dishes plus lots of fresh starters and mains. Get the watermelon & feta salad and the burrata (obv) with heritage tomatoes.
