Where to eat in Ibiza Town, local and international flavours
There is a vast range of restaurants to choose from in Ibiza. Ibiza has an almost infinite number of places, spread all over the island, where you can enjoy both traditional local dishes and gastronomic experiences so cutting-edge as to be almost unbelievable.
In general, good cuisine on the island is quite expensive; (its restaurants include Sublimotion, probably the world’s most expensive place to eat). However, while many restaurants may not suit everyone’s budget, there are also plenty of more affordable options.
Below, we present a good handful of eateries all around the island, something to suit everyone’s taste and, of course, to suit a range of budgets.

Restaurants in Ibiza Town
Among the many options available in Ibiza Town, we have picked out these particularly diverse restaurants:
(Lluis Tur i Palau, 22):
Although it only opens during the summer season, this is one of Ibiza Town’s most popular restaurants. Top quality cooking, and among the best service to be found on the island.
(Jaume I, 4):
Good Italian cooking, based mainly on fish and seafood. The freshest fish is served at this establishment with its own terrace, in a charming and relatively peaceful atmosphere, considering its location.
(Pere Francès, 21):
An extensive menu offering all kinds of Spanish and international dishes, to eat in or take away. In fact, they have a special menu for the boats that tie up at the island’s ports.
Ibiza’s best restaurants for dinner
Especially during the summer, it is a pleasure to find restaurants in Ibiza where you can eat outdoors. And even more so when it’s dinner we’re talking about. Here are a few suggestions for eateries in several locations around the island:
(Sant Antoni, 5, Sant Antoni de Portmany):
Many regard this as Ibiza’s best Japanese restaurant. As one might expect, the menu here specialises in exquisitely prepared fish in the form of sushi, sashimi and niguiri, to eat in or take away.
Jimmy & Bikini
(Dalt, 2, Port de Sant Miquel):
Creative cooking, a genuine riot of flavours, with a carefully selected combination of Spanish ingredients and all kinds of international dishes.
(Pº del Port, Santa Eulària des Riu):
This restaurant takes its inspiration from worldwide sources, and uses top-quality ingredients in its cooking.Moreover, it affords lovely views of Santa Eulalia’s marina, one of this area’s most charming settings.
This restaurant, in the heart of Ibiza’s countryside, offers a chance to indulge in genuine local cuisine. In good weather, this is, without the shadow of a doubt, one of the prettiest places to eat in Ibiza. And for evening meals especially.
Magical restaurants in Ibiza
Magical restaurants in Ibiza are many and varied. We recommend these outstanding examples:
(Buenavista, 92, Santa Eulària des Riu):
With its attractive décor and service to match, this is the perfect place to enjoy a dinner with views. Be sure to check out their menu of exotic meats (ostrich, crocodile, etc.).
(Venda de cas Ripoll, 34, Sant Joan de Labritja):
Its name alone evokes the exotic charm of travel in former times. But it’s also the ideal place to eat in Ibiza if you’re looking for fusion cooking.
El Bistró de Stephan
(Bisbe Torres, 3, Sant Antoni de Portmany):
A restaurant open only during the summer, and offering Mediterranean cuisine based on ingredients fresh from the market. This place oozes charm, and is a good choice for either lunch or dinner, or even for a more modest snack.
(Caló, 112, Sant Josep de sa Talaia):
With glorious sea views, this is one of Ibiza’s most popular restaurants. Particularly for its amazing bullit [Ibizan traditional fish stew].
Cheaper restaurants in Ibiza
As we’ve already mentioned, it isn’t easy to find places in Ibiza where you can eat relatively cheaply. But there are exceptions to every rule, and without sacrificing quality. These are our recommendations for cheap restaurants on the island:
La Frascheta Romana
(Antoni Marí Ribas, 13, Ibiza):
Informal Italian cooking, whether you opt for the paninis (rolls) or the pizzas. Despite this eatery’s small size and the high demand, the service from the kitchen is surprisingly efficient.
(Sant Antoni, 3, Sant Antoni de Portmany):
The burgers are the highlight here. However, even while they strive to keep the carnivores happy, they still offer dishes designed to please their vegan guests. Friendly, cheerful staff.
(Bisbe Carrasco, 4, Ibiza):
International cuisine to savour at the table, at an unhurried place, with substantial portions and fairly affordable prices. And it’s very near Ibiza’s port.What more can you ask?
Can Gourmet Ibiza
(Guillem Montgrí, 18b, Ibiza):
Many may be surprised at the inclusion of this establishment in the list of cheap places to eat in Ibiza. However, the price of its prepared rolls is genuinely reasonable, particularly when one considers the quality of the ingredients used.
