Minami Japanese Restaurant

A fine dining restaurant situated in the heart of Playa d’en Bossa, Minami Japanese Restaurant bridges the gap between East and West fusing Japanese techniques with Mediterranean flavours.

Words: Charles Stockton

The expansive Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel resort dominates the bustling Playa d’en Bossa strip with its iconic dancefloors, luxury accommodation and premier dining destinations. Taking the crown for the most exotic menu on offer within the resort is Minami Japanese Restaurant. Serving up Japanese Mediterranean cuisine with a flamboyant Teppanyaki twist, this Ibiza fine dining restaurant is a favourite place for Ibiza’s VIP community to congregate for pre-party meals.

A subtly lit, sleek and sophisticated interior with exposed bamboo features, living walls of green foliage and dark wooden tables create an intimate atmosphere perfect for romantic date nights and larger celebrations with friends and family. Situated immediately behind the shell-shaped Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel main stage, the shift from Ibiza fine dining to dancing is a mere hop, skip and a jump away at Minami Japanese Restaurant. It also means you’re likely to rub shoulders with the world’s finest DJs as they fuel up on the highest quality cuisine before their gigs.

The undisputed highlight of this Ibiza fine dining destination is the exclusive Teppanyaki menu. Served at private tables by your own personal chef, this interactive experience fuses theatre, skills and the very finest ingredients, all coming together in-the-moment to create memories to last a lifetime. While your chef is, quite literally, centre stage, it’s the food that’s the star of the show at Minami Japanese Restaurant. The dynamic culinary experience takes locally sourced produce, then expertly whips them into classic Japanese dishes. A variety of pescatarian and carnivorous options are available at these communal tables, and sharing and caring with the rest of your party is encouraged.

If theatre isn’t your thing, the extensive Minami Japanese Restaurant menu delivers more than enough to keep all tastebuds tantalised. From Kamado-style grilled meats and fish; to traditional sushi, sashimi, gunkan and hossomaki, or more contemporary bites like usuzukuri and nigiri (don’t go past the red prawn with Imperial Oscietra caviar and jalapeño, or the smoked eel with grated chocolate), chef Ismael Fernandez’s expertly curated and beautifully presented Ibiza fine dining menu is filled with Japanese delights. You’ll also find international favourites like black cod, silky gyoza, udon noodles and fluffy bao buns – just be sure to leave room for dessert where tropical flavours meet sumptuous textures for the perfect end-of-meal sweet treat.

There’s an east-meets-west influence on the drinks menu at Minami Japanese Restaurant too. Sake sits alongside Champagne; Kirin and Asahi beers share space with locally loved Cruzcampo, while Hakushu and Macallan offer a take on traditional whiskies from opposite sides of the globe. Fusion cocktails like the Spicy Bird, made with mezcal, lime, sugar, chilli and raspberries, or the Tiki-Nami – a blend of Brugal Extra Viejo, Luxardo maraschino, lime, cranberry juice and Angostura – will have you spinning out of the Ibiza fine dining space and straight onto the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel dance floor. A culinary trip around the world, without having to leave your favourite hotel.
