Ibiza restaurants: The Giri Café
With dusk comes delight
Tucked within the quaint village square of San Juan, behind a subtle, ancient set of double wooden doors is The Giri Café, famed for its sun-drenched terrace and garden by day. It may say ‘café’ on the sign, but don’t be fooled – what goes down after dusk makes this a day-to-night dining destination like no other.
A gorgeously sleek cocktail bar is the perfect place to start your evening experience, sipping an expertly made bespoke cocktail, before being guided to your candlelit table by the maître d. Carefully curated music floats over the airwaves, as the vibe is sophisticated and stylish, with the moon and soft lighting illuminating the garden creating an ultra romantic atmosphere.
The after dark menu concept showcases the finest local ingredients, including freshly caught seafood, fruits and vegetables grown onsite plus exceptional cuts of meat. It’s a tantalising twist of modern Mediterranean cuisine laced with exotic spices and flavours; beautifully presented, decadent and delicious.
Star dishes include a corvina and octopus ceviche, a lusciously tender slow-roasted leg of lamb, the best-selling Angus burger and a selection of crunchy vegetables enveloped in a creamy, coconut, herbaceous soup while daily ‘catch of the day’ specials reflect the best at market that day. Coffees, cocktails and exquisite desserts complete the experience, before heading on out into the Ibiza night…
