Fresh from the Lebanese grill at hot new Ibiza rooftop restaurant Patchwork – atop the famous Sa Punta by Rita and Rodolphe – is the delicious, traditional Chich Taouk, served with tabouleh and rice with sliced almonds. Succulent chunks of chicken served on a skewer, seasoned with garlic and lemon and served with a savoury sauce, it’s one of the star dishes from the main menu, and pretty much love at first bite!

Marinated for 24 hours in tandoori spices, this intensely flavoured dish is served with Umeboshi onions, romanesco cauliflower, and a velvety puree of sage and quince. Savour every last bite…

Cocktail hour: Kyupiddo by B.For, Dalt Vila

kyupiddo-cocktail-hourSurrounded by history, enveloped in the rich, warm, Mediterranean fresh air and boasting one of the most picture perfect views in Ibiza, Kyupiddo by B.For – found in the cobbled laneway at the very top of Dalt Vila, behind Hotel La Torre del Canonigo – is the most recent jewel in Ibiza’s gastronomic crown. However, the restaurant is not reserved solely for diners, with a beautiful vintage-style bar set to one side of the stylish space – perfect for sundowners, aperitivos or simply refreshment after you’ve hiked up the hill!

The bespoke cocktail list fuses classic cocktail traditions with modern methods and Mediterranean and Japanese ingredients – we love the Kojiki – a fusion of a Mediterranean and Asian sour with amaretto, black pepper, yuzu juice and sugar and the awesome Dalt Vila – a secret whisky infusion with a citrus touch served in a cute silver hip flask alongside refreshing apple juice. Walk-ins and reservations accepted.
