The Balearic way of dining is all about the atmosphere and the company - enjoying the evening with your best friends, with euphoric red-wine filter over everything.

So, although you may think you can live off solar energy and sangria forever, there will come a point when you need to eat and you might as well make a meal out and visit to one of the Ibiza’s gastronomic gems.

From dining in an abandoned monastery to drinking cocktails in a bedouin tent, Ibiza has some of the world’s restaurants. So really, ditch the strip’s refried splodge, abandon the dreaded 5am kebab, grab what’s left of your friends, head out, and enjoy a long, indulgent meal together…

 

 

For the Fabulous...

KM5

Forget Gaucho Grill, head to KM5, Ibiza’s most stylish lounge-come-bar-come-restaurant-come-club. This is definitely the hottest reservation on the island, so book early. KM5 is one of the original hybrid restaurants of the 1990s and is more of a culinary multiplex than the humble converted finca it originated as. This huge, stylish, multifunctional location now boasts five bars, a restaurant, a nightclub, a boutique and an art gallery. After some indulgent food and several drinks and courses later return indoors to the lounge where you can dance those calories away with some of the island’s best DJ’s.

Location: CTRA. Sant Josep Km 5, 07830. Sant Josep de Sa Talaia Ibiza

Vibe: Chill Boutique Lounge

Food: Argentinian + Mediterranean + Sushi

 

 

For the Hangover...

David's

Smack, bang in the centre of San Antonio, moments away from Ibiza Rocks and Mambos, David’s is the perfect place to cure a hangover or line the stomach for a big night out. This restaurant is San Antonio’s holy grail of food and the family-run, friendly restaurant offers a huge, authentic Italian selection, gargantuan portions and amazing prices.

For the Paella...

El Carmen

You can’t come to Spain without having a traditional paella, a flavoursome and colourful staple dish of rice, meat, fish and saffron. Although there are plenty of tourist places offering untasty versions with huge price tags, to get the true flavour make sure you go local. For the best paella head down to El Carmen, a friendly family-run restaurant with breath-taking views of the mysterious Es Vedra. After a stunning coastal drive you’ll find this beach-front restaurant nestled next to the gorgeous Cala D’Hort beach. El Carmen is always buzzing and is a common port-of-call for yacht parties mooring nearby. All of the food is great but the lobster-based Paella de Langosta is our personal favourite.

For the Eat, Pray, Love Moment...

Sa Capella

If you’re a religious foodie, what better place to eat than in a 400-year-old monastery chapel? The unique, rustic surroundings of this intimate restaurant transports you to an ancient Ibiza, offering a romantic escape from the hectic clubs, bars and beaches.

Leading the sermon is Chef Agostine Royal, whose Michelin-worthy menu perfectly infuses modern and traditional recipes into mouth-watering congregation of meat and fish (often cooked in front of you).  An amazing restaurant with a great atmosphere.

Vibe: Romantic and Rustic

Food: Mediterranean

 

 

For the Meat Lover. . .

Chimmichurri

Steak, beer, German sausages, beer, burgers, beer: this Argentinian feasting ground is the perfect place to get your five-a-day. This villa restaurant is perfect for al fresco dining, with overhanging trees forming intimate canopies to dine under. The menu has the feel of an upmarket BBQ and with some courses, like the Chuleton, brought to you on a hot stove for you to cook yourself. The icing on the cake is their selection of 100 different global beers!

Location: Ctra.Cala Conta km 0.1 | San Augustin, 07839 Sant Josep, Ibiza, Spain

For the Quick Lunch . .

Ibiza Rocks Bar + Diner

It may not be as romantic or as adventurous as some of our other mentions, but Ibiza Rocks does one of the best lunch deals on the island. Right on San Antonio promenade, this iconic beachfront landmark makes the perfect mid-afternoon pit-stop. With loaded burgers and tapas-like sides of mouth-watering potato skins, onion rings, and hot wings - you might destroy several months of dieting in one bite, but god is it worth it. The best thing is that it doesn’t break the bank either!

Location: Calle Dr Flemings, 6, 07820 Sant Antoni de Portmany, Ibiza, Spain

Vibe: Beachfront Diner

Food: American
