Hidden within the walls and gardens of a beautiful 19th-century farmhouse located on the edges of the petite pueblo of San Mateo is a sanctuary designed to inspire a new generation of island freethinkers. Juntos House is a fascinating venue that transcends the boundaries of the conventional ideas around farm-to-table-eating, enveloping the concept in a singular philosophy where the spirit of collaboration and creative freedom reigns supreme.
Flourishing like a mighty tree, its roots firmly embedded in the soil of Ibiza’s heritage, Juntos House has branches reaching all corners of the island via its culinary offerings, eclectic boutique and endless opportunities for creative connection. As the sun sets, embrace the magical colours of dusk with aperitifs beneath the tranquil Pergola before embarking on a gourmet adventure on the starlit restaurant terrace.
It’s here where you can savour dishes prepared with ingredients sourced from the restaurant’s regenerative farm, local small producers and island suppliers. While the Juntos House menu changes according to the season, starters might include delicious morsels such as baby beetroot with local organic bufala blue cheese and caramelised pecan; or dry-aged cecina with gremolata and preserved lemon. It’s hard to resist the pretty-as-a-picture Juntos Farm salad with edible flowers – about as KM0 as you can possibly get. Continuing onto the mains, diners will find melt-in-the-mouth line caught amberjack with cucumber, aguachile and fermented tomato; or organic pork katsu with beurre blanc, wild salmon roe, dill, kale, apple and celery.
If you’ve got a hearty appetite, order the local lamb shoulder, served for two people with baby potatoes, green mojo, fennel and pomegranate, or tuck into the speciality, meloso rice made with cuttlefish and Ibiza red prawns; or ask about the fresh catch of the day. As your meal concludes, indulge in delectable desserts – think chocolate ganache with pistachio and raspberry, or the addictive matcha and white chocolate coulant with Ibiza almond gelato – before retreating indoors to the heart of Juntos House, where a cosy bar is home to specialist mixologists crafting libations reflecting the spirit of Ibiza.
Dip into the Juntos Boutique where a thoughtfully curated selection of treasures includes botanical skincare by Rassa Botanicals, exquisite artisanal jewellery inspired by the energy of Ibiza and handcrafted by Elisa Pomar, plus silk scarves and kimonos created by Figtree Collection, using plant-based tints sourced from the surrounding land. Every product bears the stamp of quality craftsmanship and environmental consciousness, reflecting a commitment to excellence and authenticity.
Throughout the year, Juntos House hosts special events bringing together like-minded people on a quest to explore creative, philosophical and purely fun pursuits. The programme comprises panels about ecological living, earth skills workshops, art exhibitions, game nights and so much more. This charming farmhouse is a year-round playground, where warm summer evenings foster easy connections between locals, artisans, farmers, and guests during convivial gatherings on the enchanting terrace. In the winter months, lunch sees the terrace still bathed in sunshine and as the sun dips find a cosy dinner spot within the ancient walls of this stunning hacienda where friendships flourish around a crackling fire, nurturing a sense of belonging. All of this, and more, is available for private events and special celebrations.
The word juntos means together in Spanish and, at its core, Juntos House embodies the true spirit of its name. It all began with a pioneering vision to revitalise the surrounding farmlands through innovative earth-friendly practices and blossomed into a celebration of the vibrant community inhabiting these shores. Beyond its culinary delights, Juntos House has evolved into a bohemian clubhouse, where locals and visitors alike come together to breathe life into extraordinary dreams, in classic Ibiza style.
