With many lush vegetable gardens in central Ibiza, there is an abundance of seasonal produce from olives, tomatoes, figs, and of course all varieties of citrus fruit, which is why most restaurants in the country insist on growing their own produce.
Here, we uncover tried and tested secret spots tucked away in the hills, beach front gems, and all-day cafes so you don’t have to filter through the vast choice of eateries.
Set within the Boutique hotel, Casa Maca is a destination in itself, dubbed one of the island hippest foodie hangouts. Positioned in a privileged hilltop location just outside Ibiza Town, this is a must visit place on your list for rustic al fresco dining.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as impressive cocktails from the Airstream bar. The space is hosted on a laid-back,expansive terrace surrounded by fragrant beds of lavender, with the perfect back drop over the hills.
The menu is a fusion of global dishes using local, organic ingredients grown onsite in their own organic farm. An impressive grill takes centre stage, where fresh meat, freshly caught fish and farm-grown vegetables hang over the open fire. Diners can relax with cocktails, listening to the sounds of live artists and DJs playing chillout music, under a blanket of twinkling fairy lights.
Open to the public all year, the cooler months offer spacious and stylish interiors at the heart of the hotel, with a seasonal menu cooked in open fire all year round.
