One of the highlights of the new Mediterranean-infused gastronomic menu at Atzaro Beach in 2014 is the locally caught Ibiza or Formentera fish,’rotja’, delivered fresh to the restaurant on a daily basis from trusted fishermen. Cooked slowly to perfection in the oven and served with potatoes, green pepper and avocado, it is a traditional style paying homage to the restaurant’s heritage.
Risotto has an undeserved reputation as a complicated dish to prepare. People say there’s too much to prepare, too much stirring, not enough time… excuses, excuses! When we found out The Giri Café head chef Xavier Doménech Moreno can whip up the restaurant’s delicious boletus mushroom risotto in just 18 minutes, we had to learn the secret. Because the result – a rich and creamy, perfectly fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth risotto – tastes very far from simple! Xavi assures us however, it’s very simple to prepare and in fact, even difficult to overcook! Read more
Traditional Lebanese Sambousek are one of the star attractions on the menu at Patchwork, the rooftop restaurant above Sa Punta and when you taste them you’ll know why… it’s love at first bite! A buttery pastry filled with deliciously flavoured ground lamb or melt-in-your-mouth cheese, perfect for dipping and sharing – the problem is, they’re so good, one portion isn’t always enough!
If plump and perfectly grilled scallops topped with green mango and shiso mayonnaise, served on a bed of fresh, vibrantly green asparagus sounds like a dream dinner to you, then Sa Punta Ibiza should be at the top of your hot list of Ibiza restaurants! Delightful, and deliciously decadent!
One of head chef Javier Fabo’s custom creations from the beautiful La Veranda Night Restaurant in Atzaro is the light and tasty monkfish, served atop of toasted homemade bread smeared with lush, ripe avocado, then topped with a citrusy lemon alioli before being placed under a grill for the finishing, crispy touch. A great starter to share or a light meal for a hot summer night.
One of the star dishes on the evening menu at stylish Ibiza beach restaurant Pura Vida is the roasted turbot, served with tempura pak choi, chunky sweet potato and vegetables stewed in delicious broth of rice vinaigrette with coriander and papaya. Exotic, delicious and very, very more-ish…
One of the star dishes on Es Vive head chef Juan Dechecco‘s modern Mediterranean menu at Deco restaurant is the ‘Secreto Iberico‘ – a cut of pork (shoulder) that is so sweet and tender, it’s unlike any other grilled meat you’ve tasted before. Grilled to perfection, and served up alongside baby vegetables that have been steamed and perfectly crisp roast potatoes, with a splash of ‘lemon air’ – a foamy sauce to give the entire dish a citrusy zing!
Beautifully presented in the form of two delicate roses, the luxurious Waygu carpaccio at Kyupiddo Ibiza is served with Parmesan foam and rocket sponge, adding salty and spicy elements to the lush beef slices in the most simplistic yet successful of ways. The perfect starter to share, as you watch the sunset over the mountains and the Mediterranean… heaven!
From the ‘Las Clasicas‘ section of the tapas menu at hot new Ibiza restaurant Estado Puro – housed within the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza – is Spanish celeb chef Paco Roncero‘s twist on the traditional Galician Octopus. While normally, the steamed squid is served atop a bed of steamed potatoes, Roncero prefers to slice it into tender, bite sized morsels on a skewer, served alongside a light and fluffy potato mousse.
Keeping true to their ethos of creating, fresh and healthy food that is as close to the source as possible, Atzaro restaurant La Veranda presents a delicious macrobiotic salad made with fresh root vegetables grown onsite in the garden, wakame seaweed, whole grains and a lush red curry vinaigrette. Light and wholesome – the perfect summer lunch.
