Lovers of gastronomy will be happy to know there are some restaurants that keep their doors open also off season. While the weather turns colder here on the island, you’ll be after comfort and warmth – and not just from food and drink but from roaring fires, candlelight and cosy interiors.
Here’s our top pick of cosy winter restaurants in Ibiza. These restaurants do not only offer delicious winter warmers but also provide a cosy ambience – the perfect combination to enjoy dining in the colder winter months.
San Carlos. Experience the history of Ibiza in the oldest bar on the island. As soon as you enter you find yourselves surrounded by old wooden mailboxes and you can really feel the atmosphere of the 70s here, and way back beyond then. Great for a drink and a coffee, but also there is a restaurant hidden in the back that serves up tasty and well priced traditional food.
Set in a 200 year old finca this traditional Spanish grill restaurant is located on the road to San Juan. Its cosy dinning room is perfect for the winter season and the ideal dinner will end up listening to live music or having a drink in its fantastic cocktail garden, surrounded by orange trees and lit by hundreds of candles and lights that create a magical atmosphere.
You’ll have no trouble feeling snug and warm at this beautiful traditional Ibicencan restaurant, just outside the village of Santa Gertrudis. The indoor is full of places to cosy up in and the restaurant features roaring fireplaces. There’s a strong selection of Mediterranean style dishes to keep you fed – we recommend the seafood and the meat on the grill, if you are up for some sharing then order their delicious paella.
Santa Gertrudis. Sit down on one of their low stools and order a caña with a tapas plate full of Spanish ham (jamón) or local cheeses. The large central fireplace and cosy inside perhaps makes it a perfect spot to enjoy one of their delicious baguettes.
