Tucked away in a corner of the bustling square of Santa Gertrudis, Ibiza restaurant Finca La Plaza is a heavenly oasis of pure gastronomic delights, encapsulating the soul of Ibiza. A rickety wooden gate welcomes guests into the tranquil garden of the centuries-old Ibicenco finca, where swaying palms, ferns and banana plants mingle with ancient olive and orange trees, creating a Mediterranean jungle environment ideal for alfresco dining.
The menu is concise and beautifully executed with an emphasis on fresh local produce of the highest quality. Each dish is entirely honest in its interpretation, with no over-exploited ingredients and nothing to confuse or conflict the palate. Finca La Plaza is the Ibiza restaurant where purists come to eat, knowing that every plate served is a star in its own right. All ingredients are local and organic where possible, with something to satisfy all appetites and dietary requirements, starting with a selection of starters designed to share.
Grilled fresh artichokes with baby spinach and the subtle tang of fresh lemons, mint and rosemary is a tantalising option, alongside baby squid that’s been sautéed to perfection with a simple drizzle of parsley and garlic oil. The Josper grill offering at Ibiza restaurant Finca La Plaza includes corn-fed baby chicken, local lamb chops or premium cuts of beef fillet – a testament to what incredible flavours can be achieved when food is prepared with classic integrity.
Dusk is the hour when the Ibiza restaurant garden fills up, as the skies above the village turn pink and the fairy lights strewn from the trees start to glow. Nothing feels rushed within the secret garden ambience of Finca La Plaza – diners are invited to take their time and linger for longer, with carefully curated cocktails to accompany a homemade dessert. A completely charming village restaurant where the food deservedly takes centre stage in the delightful garden scenery.
