Celebrity sightings are common in Ibiza during the baking hot summer months. The A-List descend on the island’s shores for the same reasons as other tourists — to bask in the sun, swim in the sparkling sea, and to feast on exquisitely prepared meals at the best restaurants. Even so, with such an incredible array of venues on offer, the coveted celebrity seal of approval can be a rarity. That’s why when jet-setting Hollywood royalty Eva Longoria decided to celebrate her birthday with a group of friends at STK Ibiza, the event set tongues firmly wagging.
An internationally renowned brand with restaurants scattered all across the USA’s biggest cities, as well as in buzzing metropoles like Dubai, London, Mexico City, Toronto and Milan, STK Ibiza is the perfect blend of modern steakhouse and chic, exclusive club-lounge. Adored by the glitterati and quite often, stylish groups who gather for celebrations within the restaurant’s sleek surroundings, this is where exquisite food, world-class entertainment, and an unrivalled convivial atmosphere collide. More than just a place to wine and dine, it’s an entire dinner-disco experience, which means dancing on tables is never far away.
STK Ibiza in Marina Botafoch is adored by celebrities and anyone looking for an excuse to celebrate in OTT style Ibiza.
Suitably, STK Ibiza is located in Marina Botafoch, one of Ibiza’s glitziest destinations. Superyachts glimmer atop the water, the world’s most glamorous jet-setters saunter back on to terra firma for bundles of land-based fun, and the dazzling lights of Ibiza town’s iconic skyline twinkle in the distance. The same shiny aesthetics are mirrored within the restaurant itself, where sophisticated decor meets spectacular costumes and disco balls spin beneath multi-coloured lasers. Meanwhile, staff deliver cocktails alight with sparklers to every table, ensuring that even a simple sip of a drink comes with an added side of sass.
Before the party really gets started however, we eat, because that’s what STK Ibiza is about first and foremost – exquisite quality produce that’s prepared with precision excellence. And although it may seem like STK Ibiza is carnivore heaven, there’s something available to suit every taste. Start the meal’s proceedings with milky burrata served with roasted vine cherry tomatoes and basil pesto; bite-sized Lil Brgs, made with prime Wagyu beef and truffle mac’n’cheese and served on a sesame seed bun; or crispy oysters, with pickled vegetable salad and citrus mayonnaise. Tasty quinoa kale salad or creamy beetroot hummus with feta and oranges tick the box if you’re on a health kick.
Over at the Raw Bar, there’s plenty of encouragement for indulgence. Plump oysters are served with Champagne mignonette and a wedge of lemon; a silky selection of ceviche is hand-picked and sliced by the chef each day; succulent lobsters are served with a simple accompaniment of dijonnaise; and of course, it wouldn’t be an STK Ibiza celebration without Calvisius Prestige Caviar, which can be piled high on buckwheat blinis alongside whipped sour cream and chives. For a taste of all of that, dive straight into the decadent seafood platter, which offers a sample of every course.
To the main courses now, where more delights await for every kind of palate requirement. Seed-crusted salmon with citrus and curry sauce is fabulous for fans of the freshest fish; peri peri jumbo prawns with hot sauce and charred lemon are perfect for seafood lovers, while sweet-as-you-like butternut squash ravioli with butter sage, grapes and aged balsamic, or the juicy Beyond Meat burger with confit tomatoes, roquette pesto and plantain chips are the ideal fit for vegetarians and vegans. Nevertheless, what many diners head to STK Ibiza for is its unparalleled selection of prime steaks, and here, they won’t be disappointed.
The sleek Ibiza restaurant offers prime cut steaks and exquisite food alongside an upbeat atmosphere and world-class entertainment.
Showcasing a menu of the highest quality USDA steak cuts, this is a celebration of all-things American cuisine, enlivened with a dash contemporary flourish. Tuck into the flavoursome rib eye; the butter-soft Chateaubriand; or the dry-aged tomahawk, so tender that it melts in the mouth. STK Ibiza classics like sirloin and fillet options are a given, naturally, but for something truly memorable, don’t miss the speciality cuts, including Snake River Farm American Wagyu NY Strip, or the Gold Label Marbling, both chosen specifically for their intense taste, flavour and texture.
Add rich lobster butter; spicy chimichurri, or a traditional Béarnaise sauce that’s been whipped to perfection, then pair with bountiful sides like truffle and parmesan French fries; sweet potato fries with cajun spices; creamed spinach with crispy shallots; or comforting mashed potato with a delicious parmesan crust. No STK Ibiza feast is complete without dessert, so plunge into the strawberry cheesecake with sorbet, almond and basil; the chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream, or the fresh fruit platter with boozy sorbet, all served in typically spectacular fashion.
Once dinner is dusted, it’s time to ramp the evening up to the next level. Start with a signature STK Ibiza cocktail like the Black Beauty, made with Tanqueray Ten, cucumber, lime cordial and activated charcoal; an XO, made with Hennessy, cherry heering, orgeat and cynar; or if you’re really in a party mood, a supersized version of unbeatable classics like espresso martinis, frozen fruit daiquiris, and pornstar martinis, available in 1.5-litre glasses designed to share. Drinks sorted, turn your attention to the incredible array of international performers, DJs, and live artists igniting the venue every week.
Singer and songwriter Mimi Barber delivers a spectacular live show every Monday at STK Ibiza, showcasing talent that’s seen her perform alongside Laura Pausini and Barbara Tucker in the past. Spanish-born vocalist and natural-born performer Rebeka Brown takes centre stage every Wednesday throughout summer with her powerful voice bringing new life to popular house classics, while the high-energy revelry of the instrument-toting Disco Bandits can be experienced every Thursday and Sunday. A sophisticated dining experience that erupts into a vibrant after-dark party, a night at STK Ibiza is best enjoyed in the company of your very best friends (and whatever celebrity happens to be passing through that night).
