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...

I took a pill in Ibiza and it was an antacid by Jonathon Lipsin

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...

Sa Brisa Gastro Bar
 

With entrances on the Passeig de Vara de Rey and Carrer des Caló d’en Reial, this is a new, clean, interesting, lively and comfortable tapas bar.

They serve up an inventive menu, try

Croquetas (served in a visually stunning chandelier like structure, which holds each croqueta and their corresponding sauce in small glass bowls on different levels as though they were expensive jewellery)

Caesar salad (Their own our version of this classic that was invented in Mexico)

Squid with dried fish (films of dried fish flickering curiously, due to their reaction with moisture)

Dried local fish, sundried tomatoes...

COMIDAS BAR SAN JUAN 

24/7/2016

The owners of this unpretentious tapas bar remain impervious to Ibiza’s trendiness, refusing to change its wood-panelled decor and traditional Spanish menu. It seems to have barely changed its prices either and is one of the cheapest places to eat in Eivissa (Ibiza Town).

Serving classic dishes like whole fried fish (dorada, murluza, bacalao etc), calamari and paella. No reservations are accepted and be aware you will be sharing your table with others in the traditional workers way. 

Jonathon Lipsin was there today 23/7/2016

“Lunch in Eivissa, just before boarding the ferry to go ba...
