10 Best Restaurants In Ibiza

For several years, the vibrant culinary landscape of Ibiza has come to attract almost as much attention as its club scene. Top-drawer hedonist pleasures can be found across the island, also with the more pocket-friendly fare. There are many things to do in Ibiza, from sunbathing on the beaches to hitting the nightclubs, but these top restaurants will offer you something more. Its innovative Balearic Islands’ seafood and Spanish fusion delight washed down with Iberian wine will make you want to indulge in more delicious cuisines. With the clubs and all-night parties’ global attention, Ibiza has a reputation for something else entirely. It will be a shame to leave without picking up a packet of Sal de Ibiza for home. Table turnover isn’t usually a top priority for many of the island’s restaurateurs, so forget about fast food and enjoy lingering a while.
