Ibiza is famed the world over for its breath-taking sunsets, and while the majority make a beeline for the island’s west coast to catch a glimpse, those in the know head south to Ibiza beach restaurant Experimental Beach, where the kaleidoscopic sky at dusk is matched in splendour by a tantalising Experimental Group cocktail list and mouth-watering menu.
Situated on a coastal spot called Cap d’es Falco, among the glass-still salt flats of Las Salinas, Experimental Beach Ibiza is located at the end of a dusty, winding track, and it’s well worth the ride – arriving at this secluded seaside Ibiza beach restaurant is a bit like stumbling across paradise, where music, views, drinks and food all converge to create something truly special.
Part of the Experimental Cocktail Club (spanning Paris, London, New York, Menorca, Venice and Verbier), Experimental Beach Ibiza buzzes with activity at every hour. By day at the Ibiza beach restaurant, reserve a luxe bohemian sunbed facing out towards the sparkling Mediterranean, all the while sinking cocktails served in tropical-inspired conch shells; by night line up for nature’s most spectacular evening show before tucking into a delectable locally inspired menu on the alfresco terrace.
Choose from starters including beef tartare, artichoke salad, and white asparagus, and mains ranging from grilled turbot and octopus a la plancha, to prime rib steak served with French fries, of course. All this is accompanied by an extensive yet accessible wine list with many nods to Spain, and a cocktail menu devised by the expert Experimental Beach Ibiza mixologists – some of the finest in the world. Throw in a soundtrack spanning the sweet sounds of jazz, bossa nova and reggae and this Ibiza beach restaurant is a recipe for Balearic bliss.
