Famous worldwide as a clubbing hotspot, Ibiza is also an island full of delicious restaurants (guaranteed DJ-free as of 10 a.m.). Here are three examples.

White walls, wooden tables and candlelight: you’ll feel nice and cosy at Taller de tapas, a restaurant tucked away in the cobbled streets of the fisherman’s neighbourhood. Here, chef Boris Buono (who trained at Noma, voted best restaurant in the world) whips up traditional Spanish cuisine – think tapas – but with a Danish twist. Each dish is centred on an ingredient: sardines, tuna belly or calamari, served with local wine.

The philosophy behind Jul’s: “to use high-quality ingredients from all around the world with a Greek twist.” Chef Christos Fotos is at the helm of this roadside restaurant, where he concocts refined Mediterranean dishes. His star creation? Lobster risotto, squash and truffle. As for desserts, you can count on the whimsy of pastry chef Giannis Kaldanis. Before you leave, be sure to stop at the lounge bar for a last cocktail.

In Ibiza, anyone serious about food must stop here. Set in a large garden, in total harmony with the nature (and beauty) of the island, this restaurant is one-of-a-kind. On the menu, by chef Prasuna: simple and tasty cuisine, 100% housemade from local ingredients with Mediterranean influences at lunchtime and Italian flavours in the evening. As for the mood, it’s laidback, welcoming and kid-friendly. What more could you ask for?
