A guide to the best restaurants in Playa d'en Bossa
Dozens of restaurants line the beach at Playa d’en Bossa, meaning it’s easy to get a table with a view. Many of Playa Den Bossa’s restaurants seamlessly fuse foods from around the world so you can sample sushi, Spanish and Mexican all from the same menu. There are plenty of pit stops for a quick bite pre- or post-party too as well as hangover cure foods like all day breakfasts. Also, it wouldn’t be Playa Den Bossa if you didn’t have a Sunday roast before you went to Space nightclub.
Fresh fish and salads at Atlantida Beach Ibiza
Also affectionately named ‘The Fish Shack’, this intimate restaurant serves the most incredible fresh catches of the day. On arrival you’re treated to a free appetiser of fish croquettes, after which the fish, calamari and salads are some of the freshest and tastiest around. The goat’s cheese is also a favourite. It’s a romantic spot, that’s also family-friendly, where sundowners from the beach sip glasses of Aperol spritz on sea-facing sofas while watching the sunset.
Summer terrace and winter fire at Clandestino
A restaurant for all seasons, Clandestino has a terrace for pre-club cocktails in summer – Sankeys is nearby – and an open fire for comforting meals in winter. They serve weekday dinners and weekend lunches that includes a selection of fresh daily specials, plus roasts on a Sunday. The prices are reasonable and they mix some interesting cocktails, such as ginger and spicy peppers in a gin and tonic.
A buzzing BBQ joint at Moorea Grill Restaurant
Located in the Jet Apartments complex, you don’t need to stay there to enjoy the tender grilled meat and large international menu. Choose to eat overlooking the beach or on the pavement terrace and you can watch your meat being cooked on the large open-air barbecue, or alternatively just grab a takeaway.
Quick and healthy at Chopstiqs
For those times when you just want to grab something quick to eat, you needn’t lose out on quality at Asian fast-food restaurant Chopstiqs. A fusion of southeast Asian cultures, it serves traditional cuisine from Indonesia, Japan, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. Chopstiqs is a fresh and healthy alternative to regular fast food but with the usual speed of service. Open Friday to Sunday until 2am, it’s the perfect place to stop for some post-party nosh.
Stylish supper at Nassau Beach Club
With a highly styled and tactile interior and dozens of loungers on the beach outside, this beach club and restaurant even has its own fashion boutique. As it sits away from the crowds it’s a very relaxed place to wine and dine. The restaurant experiments with molecular gastronomy cooking to produce unusual yet delicious dishes and there’s a more chilled-out Tepanyaki lounge serving tasty noodle-based grub.
Treat yourself at Asador Sissi's
One for a special occasion, Sissi’s has food for all tastes as they cover sushi, spicy Tex-Mex, pizzas and Spanish meats. There is a terrace or you can sit in the outdoor chill-out zones around the restaurant which give the place a relaxed ambience. If you book a private party you can dine in the elegant pavilion.
Breakfast and brunch at Buena Onda Cafe
A little way out of town, about a ten-minute walk from Space, Buena Onda serves fresh food to nurse you back to health after a long night of partying. Their all-day breakfasts are a particular hit and can be washed down with something from the juice menu. You’ll also find plenty of seafood, salads and brunch items on offer.
Cool and calm at White Eivissa Beach Club
In the heart of the action and yet remaining unpretentious, White Eivissa is clean, fresh and oozes chic. Being open all year round, it’s a local’s favourite and is also reasonably priced with three courses for around €14.50. As well as Mediterranean delights, they’re also masters of sushi here.
Trendy Japanese at Ushuiai Minami
A Zen-like Japanese retreat, stone and bamboo is used to create private dining areas in this Ushuiai nightclub restaurant. It serves Japanese food at its best, including delicate sushi, Japanese salads, tempura battered fish and vegetables and tangy Teriyaki. You can sit at a Tepenyaki table, where chefs wow you with their cooking show, and there’s also a minimal garden area.
British food on the beach at JD's Beach Bar & Bistro
Proudly flying the Union Jack, Joanne and Darren serve English breakfasts and a hearty Sunday roast from their prime location on the Ibiza Town end of the beach. This no-frills eatery has a TV inside showing the football or you can sit on shaded seats outside and watch the world go by.
