Last updated on May 14th, 2024 at 03:40 pm

There’s a lot more to the beautiful island of Ibiza than its partying reputation. The crystal waters that are the Balearic Sea, offer a thriving underwater world, swarming with fresh fish. The lush landscapes and warm temperatures make for fertile lands.

Locals pride themselves in using locally-sourced ingredients, grown from the lands. With a variety of unique restaurants eager to share the tastes of the island, Ibiza has become a hot-spot for foodies around the globe. There’s so much to do on the island, trying the local cuisine is an added bonus!

Below is your guide to the most authentic restaurants in Ibiza.

L’atelier nº74

In the charming town of Santa Gertrudis, L’atelier is a farm-to-table café, with the freshest ingredients locally sourced from Ibizan farms. The whimsical space is a haven for creatives and nomads, with part of the interior serving as an art studio and store. The menu offers a variety of fresh foods for all. If you want a large portion of healthiness in a bowl, try the Falafel salad.

As far as restaurants in ibiza go, Ses Escoles is both tradition and uniqueness combined. Savor the true tastes of the Ibizan countryside from the beautifully decorated patio, with views of the Can Miquel Guasch.

With an extensive menu full of cold and warm dishes, Ses Escoles is known for including the soul and flavors of Ibiza in all. From land to sea, some favorites include the suckling lamb chops and the wild sole with a hint of chardonnay.

Chezz Gerdi Formentera

Sail across the crystal-clear waters to the island of Formentera. Chez Gerdi Formentera is more than a beach-side restaurant, it’s an all-encompassing experience, filled with impressive views, a surfside vibe, and the best seafood you may taste on the island.

The Paella and Octopus dishes are a must. The Paella is prepared table-side and served. The restaurant combines the unique flavors of Italy, Spain, and Formentera, turning them into mouth watering dishes for all.

Ocean Brasserie & Bar, Hotel Riomar

Relax at the end of your day, with views of Santa Eulalia Bay, and immerse yourself in your favorite dishes. Hand-picked local produce can be found in all dishes, offering a culinary feast in itself. Favorites, with an Ibizan twist, are on the all-day menu, ranging from seafood to juicy burgers.

The Ocean veggie burger is a delicious alternative for non-meat eaters, while any of the fresh, seafood dishes are a must-try.

Bar Anita

Bar Anita is local restaurant in Ibiza full of locals. Its quaint outside seating area has beautiful, low-hanging plants, and the menu is extensive enough for everyone to find something they enjoy. Pizzas, salads, pastas, meats, eggs, fish, you name it, they have it.

Bar Anita has mastered the classics, while adding traditional, Ibizan flavors. 

Lugar Barri San Carlos, s/n, Islas, 07850 Sant Carles de Peralta, Balearic Islands, Spain


Perched on the edge of a cliff, the luxurious setting overlooks the beautiful Sol Den Serra Bay. Modern Italian and Spanish dishes are brought to life with a selection of natural fish and meats, grilled on the Josper Grill. My advice would be to share a few plates to try as many as possible; the tartare and scallops are some favorites.
