By Kelsey Llewellyn

While Ibiza may conjure images of watersports in crystal clear waters or of its famous and buzzing nightlife, this Mediterranean island has much more to offer its visitors. And what better way to become immersed in Ibiza’s distinctive culture than through its unique cuisine (especially when it tastes so good)? From fresh fish to sublime paella, Ibiza’s fine dining scene consistently dazzles guests. Need help narrowing down the search? These are the five best restaurants in Ibiza according to Elite Traveler.

Donde Marian y Miguel

Cooking with only the best Iberian meat and beef (brought over directly from the Peninsula), the chefs prepare plates (including ox fillet, young lamb chops and Iberian pork filet) on a charcoal grill. If you prefer seafood, the grilled clams and fresh squid are equally mouth-watering. Decide between three dining locations: an interior lounge, replete with a fireplace for chilly evenings; a spacious and relaxing porch, with a front-row view of the grill; and an outdoor garden terrace. Be sure to stop by the Chill-Out area after your meal, which offers cocktails until dawn.donde marian y miguel restaurant five best restaurants in ibiza fine dining

Es Mirador

Its intimate interior is lined with oil paintings, and if you look up, you’ll be greeted by a detailed fresco-painted ceiling. Connected to its five-star hotel, Mirador de Dalt Vila, this eatery is open to everyone, greeting guests with its luxurious accommodations and fine dining. Entering his seventh year at Es Mirador, head chef Juan Manuel creates creative cuisine from his ingredient-driven menu. You’ll understand our excitement as soon as you try the king prawn tartar richly blended with passion fruit, raspberry, peas and a subtle avocado dressing, all served in a stunning glass sphere. The nine-course tasting menu pairs fabulously with wine from La Enoteca, the restaurant’s wine cellar featuring a delicious selection of island and Spanish mirador food, ibiza, fine dining, five best restaurants in ibiza

Es Torrent Ibiza

While this seaside restaurant has matured since its past as a wooden beach house, its culinary culture and coastal charm have remained constant. Be sure to try one of the seafood specialties, such as the restaurant’s take on Ibiza’s signature food: lobster. Order the fish of the day for the most recently caught seafood from the Pitiusan Sea. Whether you’re served St Peter fish, sea bream, grouper or scorpion fish, it will be lightly cooked in the oven before being tossed delicately on the grill and served to you with potatoes.

Restaurant S’Espartar

You’ll be hard-pressed to find fresher ingredients, as the chef’s brother owns the boats that catch the fish for the menu’s unpretentious cuisine. Allow yourself to be dazzled by the restaurant’s signature dish, Bullit de Peix (an ancient island dish of fish, potatoes, and broth), made according to an authentic recipe from Ibiza. The seafood paella is another local favorite, and specialty of S’Espartar. Complement it all with a delicious drink from the extensive wine list.s'espartar food, restaurant, ibiza, fine dining, five 5 best restaurants in ibiza
