Tucked away in San Lorenzo, this fine-dining experience fashions the contemporary out of Ibiza’s bounty.

Markus Chef’s Kitchen entices diners with its diverse menu of fresh local ingredients, often sourced by Gelman from markets that morning. Begin with tiger prawns from the local fishmonger served with asparagus and a lemon dressing. Move onto a Middle Eastern classic, with the carefully crafted Kebab Lebanese.

A restaurant guide to Ibiza wouldn’t be complete without a doffed cap to the much-loved La Paloma. La Paloma’s openness and bohemian charm has lulled locals and visitors into an easy sense of contentment. This family-run restaurant has been rustically pieced together over time with colourfully painted wooden furniture and lanterns dripping from trees.
The simplicity of the food and the laid-back ambience has got us itching to go back to simpler summer times in La Paloma’s beautiful garden. The menu consists of Ibizan and Tuscan ingredients; fresh fish and charcuterie, pastas and light salads grown from their own veggie garden.
Immerse yourself in the scents of summer by dining amongst the blossoming trees in the languid evenings. Or, cosy up in the intimate embrace of the old finca house. This restaurant is a must on all fronts when visiting Ibiza.

Bambuddha incorporates into its theme the Tantric philosophy that spirituality and sensuality are linked. Emerge through a bamboo forest, meandering among stone statues, into the forest-like restaurant that is Bambuddha.
Bambuddha’s spiritual philosophy does not end at its theme. The restaurant uses organic, sustainable and local produce and opts for wild-caught fish where possible. In collaboration with the House of Herbs, a local ecological farm, Bambuddha is able to grow its own produce.
The splashes of colour from the lighting and the tropical Indonesian layout give an atmosphere like no other on the island. Bambuddha’s appeal lies in its ability to put on a show without losing a feeling of authenticity.
