The 5 most amazing places to eat in Ibiza

places to eat in Ibiza

So this week was our 7 year anniversary, we’ve known each other for 7 years and achieved more in those 7 years together than either of us did in the 30 years before we met. So to celebrate we went for a nice evening meal and we were absolutely blown away by our experience, so much so that I thought it would be a great idea to write a blog not only about how amazing that meal was but to also highly many of the other amazing places to eat in Ibiza.

Before I give you the rundown on the 5 most amazing places to eat in Ibiza I should warn you that in Ibiza there are many very expensive places to eat, that really aren’t very good at all. Many places have a lot of style or a very expensive menu, but a high proportion of those places are massively overpriced and hugely overhyped. Sadly many places to eat on the island are expensive for what you get, but such is the price you pay to live in paradise.

So what I thought I would do is put together the 5 best places to eat that aren’t just overpriced and have slapped caviar or truffles on everything to make the price seem worth it. Of course, these are our personal favourites and you should know that we are very lucky to be able to eat nearly anything edible on the planet. Neither of us has allergies and we pretty much will eat anything, we’re not fussy like some, so if you don’t eat fish or can’t take a bit of spicy food you might not agree with some of our choices, but this list is based on our ability to eat anything, love seafood, and enjoy a good experience, as not all of these places in our list are just about the food. In fact, several aren’t the best food, but the location is what makes them amazing.


The 5 most amazing places to eat in Ibiza



  1. Hotel La Torre – A hotel on the west coast of the island with the most amazing restaurant, the food is very typical Spanish tapas, done exceptionally well, and not too expensive either. But the reason this restaurant makes the list is for the stunning sunset views. If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of downtown San Antonie and the drunken party goes then this is the best option for a meal at sunset you will find on the island, with tables looking out over the ocean so you not only enjoy some very delicious food but you can also expect breathtaking views without interruptions.
  2. The Mariner – Situated next to the marina port of Ibiza’s main town the Mariner has a wonderful fish and cocktail menu. The food was simply divine and we loved every mouthful, especially the king crab sushi roll. This is definitely one of the restaurants on the island that charges a little more than the rest but has the calibre of food to justify the price tag. The location is nicely situated by the marina, but also close enough to the main town centre just outside of Dalt Villa so that once your dining experience is over you can take a nice relaxing stroll around the local bars and late-night shops.
  3. Bambuddha – Tucked away from the main towns halfway between Ibiza Town and Santa Eulària, Bambuddha is a beautiful restaurant that offers a menu of Asian fusion dishes that are quite frankly the best on the island. There are many different Asian restaurants but Bambuddha not only manages to have the best food, but a fantastic ambience, and the cocktails are pretty special as well. Not exactly expensive but by no means a cheap meal Bambuddha is definitely recommended for special occasions, and if you want to really get a sense of the food the tasting menu is simply exquisite!
  4. Amalur – Another treasure of a restaurant Amalur is hidden just south of the central town of Sant Gertrudis and is by far one of the best restaurants we’ve been to so far on the island. Not only is the food utterly delicious but the service is unrivalled on the island. Something that is quite common in Ibiza is the terrible service in restaurants, it’s not uncommon to wait for a long time before a waiter even appears let alone takes note that you need something. The service at Amalur is nothing short of excellent, with the food prepared and delivered efficiently, but if you need anything you only need to raise your head and a waiter will be of service. A good 3-course meal for two people including a bottle of wine will set you back just €250, so not overly expensive either.
  5. Marytierra – We just so happened to stumble upon this little gem on our first outing to the island were so glad we did. Nestled among the marina restaurants in Sant Eularia marina this unassuming little restaurant has a simple but fantastic menu, but what also makes this place first-rate is the Italian husband and wife duo who run the show, always so warm and welcoming and make every guest feel like an old friend, a true taste of what life is like in Ibiza. The Sangra is also highly recommended.



We hope you’ve enjoyed our recommendations for the best places to eat in Ibiza. Of course, there are hundreds of restaurants on the island and we still have many yet to try, many so far are ok but not great, but it’s often those that have been hyped to be amazing that fall short, possibly not by being a bad place to eat, but by simply not living up to expectations. With that in mind remember that these are simply the places we’ve enjoyed the most, with the most welcoming and wonderful food we’ve enjoyed, but there are plenty more to try on the island and we can’t wait to start ticking them off on our list of great places to eat!



If you are coming to the island do be sure to book your restaurants before you even arrive as many will be booked two or more weeks in advance, especially the good ones.

Nicole Shields, the visionary behind Holistic Serenity, orchestrates these sessions with a profound understanding of the interconnectedness of our sensory experiences and their impact on healing.

Here, in the embrace of sound and sensory harmony, lies the path to true inner peace and rejuvenation.   The Science Behind Sound Healing The principles of sound healing are rooted in ancient wisdom, acknowledging the profound impact of vibrational frequencies on the human body and psyche. Scientific studies have shown that sound healing can lower stress levels, improve sleep, and decrease anxiety, creating a foundation for deeper emotional and physical healing. Ancient cultures utilized chants, drumming, singing bowls, and a variety of other sound instruments to promote healing and spiritual connection. These practices, passed down through generations, were based on the belief that the universe and everything within it, including our bodies, are in a constant state of vibration. Sound healing, at its core, is about restoring the body’s own vibrations to their natural harmony and balance. In recent years, the resurgence of these ancient practices has been bolstered by a growing body of scientific research. Studies have delved into the mechanisms through which sound and vibration affect the body’s systems, offering fascinating insights. For instance, certain frequencies and rhythms have been found to influence brainwave patterns, leading individuals from a state of alertness to one of deep meditation and relaxation. This shift in brainwave state can decrease stress hormones like cortisol and increase the production of endorphins, the body’s natural pain relievers.   The Power of Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls are at the core of our sound healing practices. Crafted with a blend of pure quartz and precious gems, these bowls produce resonant frequencies that promote healing from within. Their unique compositions correspond to different chakras, facilitating energy flow and balance throughout the body.   Ibiza’s unique energy Ibiza, renowned for its breathtaking landscapes and mystical allure, holds within its embrace a network of energy vortexes, natural phenomena that amplify the island’s vibrational essence. These vortexes, areas where the earth’s energy is concentrated and magnified, intertwine seamlessly with the practices of sound healing to create an environment ripe for profound transformation. The interaction between the resonant frequencies emanating from sound healing instruments and Ibiza’s vibrant energy enhances the therapeutic impact of each session. Participants who journey into sound healing within this magical setting often report experiences that transcend the ordinary, attributing a deeper sense of connection not only to their inner selves but to the universe at large. This unique confluence of sound and place facilitates a clearing of mental fog and an awakening of inner tranquility, granting individuals a heightened sense of clarity and an unparalleled serenity. It is this extraordinary synergy that makes Ibiza not just a backdrop, but a dynamic participant in the healing journey, offering a sanctuary where the soul can explore, heal, and flourish.   Your call to experience Sound Healing in Ibiza Whether you are looking for a private group session, a 1:2:1 session that focuses on your own personal needs, or a group session, you are invited to embrace the opportunity experience the power of sound in one of the most energetically charged environments on earth.

What is a Shamanic Fire Ceremony?

The shamanic fire ceremony is a traditional practice that is performed by many different shamanic practitioners around the world. There are many different ways in which the fire ceremony can be performed each with their links to the history of the region they originate. James has studied the traditional fire ceremony of the Q’ero people from Peru. It is a ritualistic process that involves building and lighting a fire in a specific way to connect with the natural elements and the spiritual realm. Fire is seen as a source of energy that can cleanse, heal, and transform those who participate in the ceremony. What’s involved in a fire ceremony? The ceremony itself involves several steps and rituals that have been passed down through generations of the indigenous Q’ero people. First, the shaman will build the fire. This fire is seen as a sacred space that protects the participants from negative energies and entities. The shaman will then invoke the spirits of the four winds, mother earth and father sky. Opening space for the natural elements to join and empower the spiritual space. Then complete the processes by offering sacred plants, oils, herbs, and other elements to the fire. The participants will then enter the circle and offer their own prayers, intentions, and offerings to the fire. This is done to release negative energy and to connect with their inner selves and the divine. The participants will often hold their hands around the fire and place offerings into the flames. This is in the form of two sticks. One is highly decorated to call forth that which they desire in their lives, their dreams, wants and passions. The other stick is plain, which symbolizes the release of negative emotions and energies. The fire is seen as a gateway to the other side, a place where you can call forth the spirits to help you on your journey. A fire ceremony allows you to call forth that which you desire. To offer to the fire a blessing that is in total gratitude for the future you wish to have. This gratitude prayer asks the great spirits to help you to manifest your goals, wants and desires and is a very powerful tool for abundance. A fire ceremony is a time for cleansing, healing and manifesting The shaman will then perform a series of rituals that involve blowing smoke or misting Agua de Florida over the participants, using feathers or other sacred objects to cleanse their energy fields, and performing healing work. The ceremony involves chanting, drumming, and rattling to create a trance-like state in the participants, using a traditional Ikaru from Peru to call forth the water spirit so that the medicine space may have balance. The benefits of a shamanic fire ceremony are many. It is seen as a way to release negative energy, to connect with the divine, and to receive guidance and healing. It is also believed to help with emotional and physical healing, to clear blockages and obstacles, and to promote spiritual growth and transformation. Where can I take part in a fire ceremony?

Many shamanic fire ceremonies are performed as part of a larger retreat or workshop, which can offer a more immersive and transformative experience. A shamanic fire ceremony is a powerful and transformative practice that has been used by indigenous peoples for centuries.
