Q&A: Yolanda Torres, Aubergine Ibiza
Beautiful new Ibiza restaurant Aubergine Ibiza is the perfect choice for a healthy, wholesome and delicious Ibiza gourmet experience. The epitome of Ibiza rustic chic, the restaurant boasts a farm to table menu with an emphasis on organic and locally-sourced ingredients. Located on the road between Santa Gertrudis and San Miguel it is surrounded by acres of countryside, and here you can while away the hours feasting on delicious, home-grown food, browse in the shop, and enjoy a variety of fun activities for all the family.
After 30 years away from Ibiza, successful business woman and born and bred islander Aubergine owner Yolanda Torres decided to swap her high-flying PR career in Barcelona to return home armed with an amazing concept and a great plan to put it into action! It’s all about getting back to nature…
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am from Ibiza but I moved to Barcelona to study. In 1996 I opened my own PR agency, Equipo Singular, which became the largest in Barcelona with over 80 staff. In 2010 I did a Masters in Digital Marketing with a view to coming home to Ibiza to be closer to my family and I was working with my lifelong friend Atzaró owner Victor Guasch on his rebrand, which inspired me to create something of my own, and which Victor is also a big part of. I’m a passionate foodie and I care about organic food and local-sourcing, and I wanted to open a beautiful restaurant in the heart of the Ibiza countryside that focused on delicious, honest food.
