RESTAURANT CAMI DE BALAFIA
If you fancy something big and meaty in the evening (sorry vegetarians but this probably not for you!) head 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 on the way to the village of San Joan de Labritja from Eivissa, slightly set back just off the main road).
Here you will find Restaurant Camí de Balàfia. Is is opposite Restaurante Ca Na Pepeta, which is also good.
This restaurant represents the real Ibicencan (even hippy) spirit of Ibiza. You eat under the stars in a beautiful hacienda courtyard covered by orange and lemon trees.
There is indoor seating in the unlikely event of a freak thunder storm. This place is frequented by the famous (Mick & Jade Jagger, Kate Moss et al) and not so famous faces of Ibiza.
Start with fantastic aioli, which is utterly gorgeous (and strong, vertualy raw garlic!)
With olives and home made bread
Next is a side dish of sensationally sweet, locally produced tomato and onion salad
There is no menu as it’s the place for big chunks of meat and in particular, steak.
Great big succulent slabs of it are cooked on a hugh outdoor grill.
over a combination of three kinds of trees, almond, carob, and olive.
They also grill :
Chorizos (Spanish Sausages)
Pollo de corral (free range chicken)
Chuletas de cerdo (pork chops)
Chuletas de cordero (lamb chops)
Entrecôte (sirloin steak)
You can try all of these meats in a mixed grill if you wish.
They come with the most delicious chips (they say they are expertly hand peeled by the grandfather).
Flaó (homemade cheesescake with mint)
Graixonera (a local cinnamon based bread pudding)
There is also an decent wine list including Rioja and Ribera del Duero and many local wines such as Tinto de Pais from North West Ibiza (good if you like big unfiltered reds)
Finish with a chupito or two of home made hierbas (local liqueur made with herbs from the island) on the house.
The place is run by a great local family with friendly and informal service. Do not expect a sophisticated ambiance with live shows or fashion catwalks.
Always busy in summer, you need to book.
Like a lot of places in Ibiza, no credit cards, cash only
