Lovers of fresh octopus should make a beeline for hot new Ibiza beach restaurant Cotton Beach Club where head chef Marcelo Eufrosino Rodrigues brings his mother’s secret recipe for ‘pulpo mari mar’ to the Cala Tarida shores. Marinated and cooked in a luxe blend of high quality olve oil, coriander and white wine, then served atop perfectly crispy roast potatoes, it is the simplicity of the dish that allows you to really appreciate the fresh flavour of the squid.
Year after year, one of the consistent bestselling dishes at beautiful Ibiza restaurant La Oliva Ibiza is the grilled cod fillet, served on a bed of creamy asparagus risotto. The beauty of the dish lies in its simplicity – fresh and light flavours that complement each other perfectly and aren’t too heavy for the hot summer nights.

White Ibiza recommends: Pan-fried sea bream at Aura
The almost-stifling August heat in Ibiza can sometimes mean it’s difficult to satisfy your appetite. Light, fresh dishes are the order of the day and we love the simple yet delicious sea bream at Aura before a night on the dance floor (like Guilty Pleasures tonight!) Lightly pan-fried in a warm chive dressing, it’s served with a refreshing watercress and pink grapefruit salad, not to heavy, but not too light… as Goldilocks would say, it’s j-u-s-t right!
