The four major Balearic Islands have always felt like family and with the opening of K·OBA by UM, the bond between Ibiza and Mallorca becomes even stronger. Created by Mallorca-based hospitality establishment UMAMI Group, K·OBA by UM is a sunny, cool and casual Ibiza beach restaurant on the shores of Santa Eulalia. With views stretching out across the sand and sea, and a menu imbued with Mediterranean flavours and Japanese traditions, K·OBA by UM is set to be a new meeting point for locals and travellers alike.
The beach chic vibe at K·OBA by UM takes cues from nature’s colours, textures and tones. Organic fibres, wood finishes and artisanal fixtures create a laid-back ambience – the perfect place to indulge in summer holiday feels. Sip on signature cocktails like the zesty Ibiza mule featuring passionfruit, red fruit gin, lime and ginger beer, or go for a fruity, cross-cultural concoction like the Santera – strawberries, Volcán tequila, lime, ginger and grapefruit soda. If classics are more your style, don’t skip the Ibiza beach restaurant’s selection of thirst-quenching frozen cocktails: daiquiris, coladas, margaritas and more, available by the glass or jug.
At K·OBA by UM, starters are social and sharing is encouraged. Iberian ham served with crystal bread and tomato is a Spanish classic, enhanced by the Ibiza beach restaurant’s light, seaside atmosphere. Try the creamy burrata salad with tomato slices, basil oil and pine nuts for some summer indulgence or bite into the chicken crunch with Japanese mayo. Vegans will enjoy the freshness of the K·OBA salad made with Kamado braised avocado, yogurt and herb sauce, fresh vegetable crudités, baby spinach and pistachio pesto.
Mains traverse the Med and Japan with a healthy dose of inventiveness. Be sure to sample the standout K·OBA by UM burger, made with juicy American Angus beef, bacon, cheddar cheese, K·OBAsauce, lettuce, tomato and fries. Elsewhere, try the tasty snapper with kimchi mayo, healthy salmon with sautéed edamame or the more-ish Iberian pork cut with apple sauce. The Ibiza beach restaurant also boasts a sushi and sashimi menu, packed with uramaki, tempura, nigiri and sashimi plus signature rolls like the ebi panko with prawns, avocado, flambéed salmon and kimchi mayo.
Laid-back music sets the scene for relaxed sunny days and star-filled nights at K·OBA by UM. With a rotating selection of the island’s best resident DJs spinning Balearic beats that fuse funk and soul with a touch of disco and a dash of classics like jazz, afro-beat and more, a feeling of freedom floats over the Ibiza beach restaurant‘s airwaves – perfect for daytime dates, romantic dinners or celebratory meals with groups of friends. For culture, tradition, liberty and fun, there’s no place like K·OBA by UM.
