Hostal La Torre – This Is Where I Long To Be

      A truly refined and memorable supper for those who worship taste and quality above all else. I noticed a plaque with Madonna’s La Isla Bonitas lyrics whilst walking around the hotel. No wonder she reportedly changed them from San Pedro to Ibiza during her recent visit. This is where I long to be, La Isla Bonita.

      “It’s All Gravy” Sunday Lunch @ Mariposa, Cala Llonga

      As we were enjoying the afternoon you couldn't help but notice the succession of puddings pass by to other less patient patrons. Apple Pie created with an outlook of ‘now that’s an apple pie’. Syrup Sponge Pudding smothered in creamy custard that had been created with an outlook of ‘now that’s a childhood memory’.

      The All New Mumak

      Welcome to the all new Mumak - new, different, professional, and most of all very tasty.

      Bondi: A Winter’s Tale

      A fair reflection of Bondi’s fresh approach is in the diversity of plans for the winter season. But how can I cover so many different topics in one article?

      Mint: Superb Food, Incredible Price – Part 2

      Never yet has the ridiculously good value menu—13.50€ for three courses—failed to live up to expectation, and nor did it today. But remember, this isn’t one to put on the wish list—you only have until October 31st to get along before the shutters come down. The menu changes weekly, so that’s 2 menus left. Be kind to yourself, try them all, it’s been a long hard summer and you’ve earned it.


      Donnegans has been a San An Bay institution for many a year. 15 years in fact. I know that because I went down to the anniversary celebrations this week just gone for what is known in Irish circles as Craic. For those who are unaware of Donnegans and why it is an institution, I’ll give you all a little background.

      Relish-ious, No Surprise They Are Tripadvisor No1

      Just how good does that look? And in addition to the quality cooked ham, salamis and top quality cheeses including Manchego, Stilton and some sumptuously soft Brie, the Relish-ness came by way of a red onion marmalade, salsa, mozzarella and sundried tomatoes, olives, bread and ali-oli.

      David’s Pizzeria

      With its stylish French-Italian cuisine David’s Restaurant/Pizzeria located in the heart of San Antonio is always a popular choice for those in the know. David’s has been consistently ticking all the boxes for the last two decades—great food, excellent service, a lively atmosphere and prices that never dent the wallet too badly.

      Café Bondi

      It seems that the whole western world is getting a little health conscious lately, and Ibiza is no exception. You only have to look at the excessive amount of gym bunnies in swimsuits and musclebound lads in their little orange shorts to see how important it has become to look good.

      Playa Bella – Best of British

      The promenade fronting Playa Bella hotel terrace has always been a popular choice for good food at very good prices and for many is Ibiza’s spiritual home for bingo and hotel cabaret nights. They have now added a traditional Sunday Roast to their menu.

      Relish Restaurant & Pool Lounge

      It's on days like this that you just want to sit by a pool all day, eat good quality light snacks and frequently dunk your head under the water. Never fear, for we have the perfect spot to cool down in the sun.


      Just a few hundred metres north along the coastline you’ll find the laid back area of Cala des Moro which has exactly the same sunset, albeit from a slightly different angle, and far less hustling and bustling. Head up the wooden steps by the promenade and you’ll then find Kasbah, an Ibiza institution that has been providing fresh quality food and drinks to ‘those in the know’ for the last couple of decades.


      Clichés are clichés for a reason and every so often you manage to find that special somewhere that deserves them. I lounge on an outdoor sofa and soak up that sweet sweet breeze whilst taking in the marvellous aromas coming out from the kitchen.

      Steak ‘n Shake Playa D’en Bossa

      Steak ‘n Shake is now firmly established throughout America and is currently expanding into Europe, more specifically into Playa d’en Bossa.

      Sol y Sombra – The Garden

      Sol y Sombra used to do amazing food on the grill, and then they closed. Now the grill is back in business and, thank the Ibizan gods, the food is just as tasty as ever!

      Ocean Beach Restaurant

      Some real kitchen talent has resulted in some very nice touches – the Salmon has a layer of sesame seed crust and includes a piece of crispy skin on the side, and both have crunchy textured twirls and crisps included.

      Bucanero & Donnegans

      An Irishman and a Pirate walk into a bar ... We review two of the best spots in the bay of Sant Antoni.

      Relish Cafe

      It’s hard to believe that there was a time when the bay of San Antonio wasn’t on the culinary map of Ibiza. Relish Cafe is one of the new batch of restaurants which is changing that.

      Tulp.. Tulip.. Tulipan.., a tulip by any other name …

      It is relaxed but stylish, cool without trying too hard, it has the high tables, typical of a Dutch bar that encourage communication instead of TV gawking, it has an interesting but unpretentious menu, it has every type of seating possible from hammock to sofa to dining to oil drums. All of these quirks come together to make it a special place, one of that limited number of places that you have a certain mood for.

      Cotton Beach Club

      Overlooking the bay of Cala Tarida in the south-west of the Island, The Cotton Beach Club was quite the hit last year with islanders and jetsetters alike.
