From the original celebrity hangout in NYC to the sandy shores of Talamanca bay, world-renowned restaurant Nobu is a culinary game changer on the Ibiza fine dining scene. Set within the stylish surrounds of Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay and open for dinner, Nobu offers quality Japanese-Peruvian cuisine from morning to night.
Founded by master sushi chef and restaurant namesake, Nobu Matsuhisa, the Ibiza Bay outpost is the latest in a global operation spanning over twenty years and five continents. Combining South American and Japanese flavours and techniques reflects the chef’s personal journey and is a wonderful addition to the Ibiza fine dining scene.
While it maintains a fine dining status befitting its global reputation, dinner at Nobu in Ibiza feels as relaxed and unpretentious as its island location. Sturdy high stools line a discreetly-lit bar for prime views of the sushi prep and open kitchen, or you can opt to take a table outside on the alfresco terrace beneath the romantic twinkle of the stars and moon.
There are certain signature Nobu dishes that have become as iconic as the fine dining restaurant itself; take the Black Cod miso for example – marinated and then grilled to perfection. The Yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño is another much-imitated classic that must be tasted to be believed. Meanwhile, padron pepper crispy rice sits alongside salty edamame taking inspiration from Ibiza, while Formentera prawns and locally sourced seabass make the most of the island’s surrounding sea.
The Ibiza fine dining restaurant is also a sensational destination for evening cocktails; its wooden stools and tables evoke a city-centre hot spot, with the showcase kitchen providing the entertainment. Sizzling with stylish glamour, the innovative and exciting dinner menu is cleverly paired with the finest of South American tequila, bespoke sakes and an expertly selected wine list that serves elevate the overall sensory experience.
