The white island of Ibiza is an epicurean delight just waiting to be discovered by any fan of fine dining. Gourmet chefs travel from all over the world to base themselves in the heart of the Mediterranean and to showcase their skills to Europe’s finest foodies. Many of the island’s luxury hotel resorts feature exceptional restaurants with renowned head chefs. Or a short stroll around the atmospheric old town reveals fine dining treasures tucked amongst the centuries old castle walls. Fine dining restaurants can also be found settled in the rural countryside of the island, in renovated fincas with ambient gardens adorned with olive trees or enclosed by up-lit palms.
The abundance of locally produced high-quality ingredients is a main foundation for most fine dining menus in Ibiza. A wonderful variety of vegetables, fruits and herbs flourish in the humid summers and temperate winter months, and fresh fish or organically raised meat is plentiful all year round thanks to the wonderful island farms. The international mix of executive chefs then creates the most wonderful fusions, drawing in culinary inspiration from Korea and Thailand, France and Italy or even Japanese. The result is the most exquisite and memorable food choices, impeccably served in stunning surroundings whether town, country or resort.
Fine dining restaurants outside of town also provide so much more than simply a delicious meal. Beautifully restored traditional farmhouses host miniature art galleries, gorgeous and exclusive shopping boutiques with designer dresses, accessories and jewellery that simply cannot be found elsewhere, and friendly cocktail bars, just made for propping up against as the dinner turns into dawn. Finding a DJ and a small dancefloor around the corner from your table is not unheard of, as cocktails and a boogie after dinner is positively encouraged. The White Ibiza Fine Dining Restaurant Guide is the place to look for the perfect destination dinner.
