But Eivissa, the island's capital, hides many other treasures, both historical and gastronomic. The capital is the figurehead of the new culinary scene on the White Island, and the restaurants in the old town of Ibiza are the perfect starting point for discovering the new philosophy of the Ibizan chefs

Once past the fortified ramparts, you discover a veritable labyrinth of cobbled streets and stairways. Stroll through the streets, lose yourself in the maze of white houses. Follow the mood of the moment and explore our favourite tables to discover the inventiveness of old Ibiza town restaurants, they feel younger than ever.

For bohemian spirits: the trendy restaurants of ibiza

Formerly the destination of choice for hippy communities, the island of Ibiza is still imbued with this bohemian spirit. Strolling through the cafes and restaurants of Ibiza's old town is enough to recreate the light and friendly atmosphere of the sixties.

Plaza del Sol

Our favourite tapas restaurant is nestled in the heart of the citadel. Its evocative name alone is enough to take you on a journey. In the morning, you come and sit on the benches filled with colourful cushions, found in the island's hippy markets, to enjoy a fresh fruit salad and an iced coffee.

We come back at nightfall, when the terrace is lit by dozens of lanterns. On the menu: assortments of tapas to share, grilled lamb chops with herbs and the catch of the day. In short: a convivial and elegant menu.

Plaza del Sol: Plaça del Sol, 7, 07800 Eivissa, Balearic Islands, Spain


Climb up to the heights of the city and make yourself comfortable on one of S'Escalinata's ottomans, just in time to watch the sunset over the rooftops of Eivissa. This small restaurant in Ibiza's old town offers you a relaxed cuisine and an authentic atmosphere. S

itting along the steps of the citadel, you can share tapas and a pitcher of homemade Sangria. The music and laughter grows louder and louder as night falls. Here, it is not uncommon to end up sitting at a table with your neighbours, sharing the best places to visit on the island!

Es Mirador de Dalt Vila

Stop at the restaurant of the Hotel Es Mirador de Dalt Vila. Here you can enjoy avant-garde cuisine with a Mediterranean flavour, all washed down with the best wines.

The immaculate dining room, with its gilded oil paintings, immediately sets the tone: here, the cuisine is elegant. On warm summer evenings, you can sit out on the terrace and enjoy a refreshing cocktail accompanied by delicious home-made petits fours.

La Gaia

Go there to taste the refined and original "Japanese" cuisine of chef Oscar Molina. Blending great gastronomy, Mediterranean inspiration and traditional Japanese techniques, La Gaia's menu is reserved for those in the know.

Let yourself be charmed by the Posidonia menu, composed of twelve elegant and tasty creations, for the taste buds as well as the eyes. Our favourites? The oyster ceviche with its salmon egg caviar, and the lobster bisque delicately flavoured with vanilla. Ask for the food and wine pairing to multiply all the flavours tenfold.

With its turquoise waters and endless beaches, Ibiza is the ideal destination for a family holiday. After a scorching day on the golden sand, take your tribe on a tour of the Eivissa fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and stop off at one of its family-friendly addresses for dinner.

Can Guillemis

A trip to Ibiza would not be complete without an authentic paella. The old town of Ibiza is full of restaurants serving this typical dish of Spanish gastronomy. Our favourite? The "gastro-bar" Can Guillemis, on the Marina.

Don't hesitate to accompany the traditional paella with an assortment of Mediterranean specialities: patatas bravas, fried squid with aioli, a plate of Iberian ham and pan con tomato… We ask for all the dishes at the same time, to share them. And as a reward for wise children, the house serves tasty milkshakes made with fresh fruit.

Can Guillemis: Calle Enmig, 15, Eivissa, Balearic Islands, Spain


Los Valencianos

This address is not exactly a restaurant… but it has every imaginable flavour! Located in the Marina district, the Los Valencianos ice cream parlour is a real institution in Ibiza. You can come there at any time of the day - and at night, they stay open until four o'clock in the morning - to enjoy a good ice cream.

The most difficult thing is still to choose among the dozens of flavours of ice cream and sorbets available. Children will fall for the Speculos biscuit ice cream or milk jam, while parents will prefer the refreshing aromas of sour lemon.

Las Valencianos: Pl/ Antoni Riquer, 5, Eivissa, Balearic Islands, Spain
