HIP IBIZA RESTAURANT IN HISTORIC VARA DE REY
Set in the iconic main square of Ibiza town, a cool café vibe flows from the stylish interior of La Cava Ibiza onto its bright and sunny terrace. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to a young, hip and professional crowd all year round, the buzzy atmosphere makes it the perfect Ibiza restaurant to grab a bite, a business lunch or some after work tapas in the island’s capital city.
Inside the urban-inspired Ibiza restaurant – part of the legendary Mambo Group – rattan lampshades cast intimate pools of light down the long seating space, while distinct black and white tiles on the bar add a city ambience. An open-kitchen offers a snapshot of the creativity going on behind the scenes at La Cava Ibiza, while out on the terrace, colourful pots of cacti are complemented by huge leafy trees.
If you’re popping in for breakfast, the menu is Ibiza town’s best. Toasted bagels with salmon marinated and smoked onsite, ham or scrambled eggs are a must-try, but the typical tostadas are also a classic. From midday onwards, tantalising pintxos line the La Cava Ibiza bar, such as brie and locally sourced sobrasada (Ibicenco sweet sausage) or foie topped with homemade onion marmalade or caramelised apple. This is the kind of attention to detail that makes this Ibiza restaurant so unique and loved by locals.
Tasty tapas – classic and contemporary – are also on offer, but for a more substantial meal, try the chicken shawarma – the meat is marinated in 15 spices overnight before slow-cooking on the Ibiza restaurant’s own kebab rotisserie – or the classic ox burger. The cream of Burrata with pickles and that home-smoked salmon is another favourite, while more exotic flavours pop up in curries, tataki and lamb skewers. Whatever your taste, whatever your appetite, there is always something to please at La Cava Ibiza.
