There are some island restaurants that burst onto the scene with a bang, and there are others that enter quietly, slowly gaining a reputation as a result of exceptional food and setting; growing in stature thanks to word of mouth. Mikasa Restaurant falls into the latter camp. A favourite among locals and those in-the-know, the Ibiza healthy eating hotspot is located within the picturesque surroundings of Marina Botafoch – in the hotel of the same name, Mikasa Ibiza, where a plant-based kitchen, nature and sustainability are key to its mindful ethos.
Open to hotel guests and the public alike, Mikasa Restaurant specialises in the kind of nourishing cuisine that make you want to kick off your shoes, sit back and take your time. The perfect spot for Ibiza healthy eating, the menu here brings the best of Mother Earth to your plate, putting plants at the forefront. Only the highest quality produce is sourced locally to ensure perfection and optimum flavours on your plate.
Brunch is served throughout the day at Mikasa Ibiza, and features a range of freshly pressed juices – with names that pack a punch like Green V Detox, Beet It, Wild Energy, Strawberry Passion and more – plus linseed tostadas, quinoa croissants, colourful bowls, a choice of cacao or coconut pancakes, tofu scrambles and much more. Coffees, teas and natural, biodynamic wines are also available.
At dinnertime, this Ibiza healthy eating restaurant pulses to a different beat. Enlivened by the surrounding area that blinks awake by night, there’s an altogether different vibe and menu to experience at Mikasa Restaurant.

It’s Ibiza healthy eating, but not as you know it.
Sharing plates take the limelight at Mikasa Restaurant now, with dishes like chickpea tortillas and cashew cream, coriander pesto and crispy pumpkin; and crispy yucca served with green chutney on offer.
