This dreary (Mon)day, let’s all escape to sand dunes, salty hair – and some sexy AF new openings on the party island of Ibiza. Our guide? Aiste Miseviciute aka. @Luxeat. As a model working in New York, Aiste was introduced to a fascinating lifestyle which prompted her to capture and share these experiences on her blog in 2004. Having no idea that gastronomy would someday become her lifeline, the blogging became a fun and practical way of sharing experiences with friends and relatives.
She is now an influential connoisseur in the foodie world and splits her time between London and in St Gertrudis, Ibiza. Jealous? Us?
Today she’s sharing her 10 favourite spots in Ibiza so get planning your next trip.
Casa Jondal : The new seafood spot on Cala Jondal by one of Spain’s best chefs, Rafael Zafra.
El Bigotes : Rustic chiringuito on the picturesque Calla Mastella serves traditional fish soup cooked over a wood-fire (bullit de peix) from the catch of the day. Book in advance for the second service at 2 pm when the two course dishes are on available.
Es Xarcu : Authentic beach restaurant right to the water’s edge, serves traditional seafood and rice. Their oven baked fish, especially the John Dory, is excellent.
Es Boldado : Traditional seafood and rice restaurant with the stunning view of Es Vedra and it’s even more beautiful for sunset.
Ses Boques : Simple, laid back restaurant on a very charming beach in Es Cubells. Make sure you are a good driver, as the road down is dizzying, but totally worth it. The restaurant serves traditional seafood and rice
Bar Costa : Best jamón and bocadillos in the charming village of St Gertrudis. Love going for an aperitif there.
Cana Pepeta : Modern Argentinian grill and Mediterranean dishes served in a beautiful renovated space. Josper grill nights on Thursdays are a must.
Can Balafia : Wood fire grilled meat institution. Chicken, lamb chops, potato chips as well as the fresh aioli made daily: a must.
Macao Café : Best Italian on the island with gorgeous tree-shaded terrace. Place to be on the hot summer nights.
Can Domo : Revisited traditional cooking from the very best what the Ibizencan sea and the land has to offer.
La Paloma : Family owned Italian – Mediterranean institution with Middle East influences in the shade of a beautiful garden in Sant Lloren.
If you are thinking of visiting Ibiza in the near future, consider flying from London City who have got all the safety precautions down so you can enjoy your break from the moment you arrive at the airport.
