Often described by people in the know and the many famous celebrities who visit the Island, restaurant Sa Capella, is thier favourite in Sant Antoni de Portmany (San Antonio). It's not actually in the lively and much maligned town itself, but a few km outside, on the way to Cala Salada and Santa Agnés, in the lovely Ibicencan countryside.
It is one of the most delightful restaurant's on the island with a great decor and fantastic ambiance, it is situated in a converted late 16th century chapel. Inside there are small booths around the main cavernous room which has low lighting and candles. I...
This review contains three different trips to Es Boldado
When driving from Sant Josep to Cala d’Hort, before you get there, take the last right turn to Cala Truja, after abour 3 km you will see the sign for Es Boldado on your left.
Turn into this road and drive down the dusty camino (dirt track) for around 1.5km and you will come upon the best view in Ibiza. If you are looking for a restaurant with a view, this is the one for you.
Restaurante Es Boldado is situated on a precipitous cliff, facing the mystical Islets of Es Vedrá (supposedly the third most magnetic place on earth!) and...
Wonderful Valencian style paella and fideuà are served at this family run restaurant away from the busy summer crowds of Ibiza on the way to ses Salinas beach and its famous chiringuitos like Sa Trinxa and Jockey Club.
Start with the local pan y aioli
Fideuà is a dialectal pronunciation of the Valencian or Catalan word fideuada (which means a large number of noodles) it is a seafood dish originally from the coast of Valencia which is similar to paella (paella is actually the name of the pan it is cooked in) and even more to arròs a banda, but with noodles instead of rice. The main...
After meeting Jonathon Lipsin and Bernadette Mundy on Facebook through our joint love of Ibiza, Formentera and music, I invited them over to Ibiza for a days tour of the Island for food, fun and frolics each year.
This was to be our second trip and we met at our usual meeting place outside the Café Mar y Sol in Ibiza Town after their short sea trip from Formenter, we were joined this time by my friends from London, Danny and Pankaj.
Once settled in our hire car I gave them a CD I had made of their favourite music (this had become a regular tradition) and we set off for our tour. Leaving the busy Eivissa (Ibiza town) w...

It was a perfect day really.
Bernadette and I drove to the ferry and boarded an 8am boat to Ibiza. We landed at the old familiar dock and made our way down the street to Mar y Sol Cafe. This has been the spot to grab a good coffee and breakfast and watch people and meet people since the twenties when it first opened. "Meet you at Mar y Sol" is the standard reply for a discreet or otherwise rendezvous.
It was also the favoured place for the Nazis and t...

If you fancy something big and meaty in the evening, (sorry vegetarians but this is probably not for you!) drive up restaurant road, officially known as Carretera San Joan de Labritja, (it‘s the second to last restaurant on the left, on the stretch of road going to the village of San Joan de Labritja from Eivissa (Ibiza Town). If you count down the kilometre roadside posts, it is at 15.4km.
Here, you will find Camí de Balàfia, which is set back off the main road opposite Ca Na Pepeta, which is also good.
This restaurant represents the real Ibicencan (even hippy) spirit of Ibiza. You eat...
