If you want to stay open mouthed for a whole night, Lio is the place! I had never been to a restaurant where the show is so complete and the ambience is so spectacular. From the (about) 16 artists that acted that night, all 16 of them were fantastic! From dancing, to singing, from acting, to gymnastics, they did it all! The restaurant has a wonderful vibe in which the waiters dance with each other, with the artists and with the clients, and that makes you stand up and join everyone's party. Every two or three songs, there's a different artist doing something different!

In terms of the restaurant itself, during the whole dinner (from 23:00 to 01:00), we were attended by very polite and attentive waiters. The two starters that were ordered (ceviche and burratina) were well served and tasted wonderfully. The only negative thing to point out, was the main courses, in which the lobster penne and the mushroom/truffle risotto weren't fantastic. The risotto in particular was too strong and after the first couple spoons, the risotto became nauseating.
However, the meat tartar and the black cod were fabulous dishes! I guess it depends on the dishes you order - which isn't something a restaurant of this kind should affor (everything on the menu should be perfect)

As the night goes on, the clients start dancing with the artists, waiters, and other tables and as the show ends the disco starts pumping music (around 01:30). You get free entrance by being a client of the restaurant (''you save 40 euros'')

Warning : Get ready to get a BIG bill at the end, because the minimum price for an entrance is 30 euros and a main course can go up to 70 euros (with no IVA)! BUT..... If you take into account that you're 'paying' for an amazing view of the town illuminated at night, and an amazing show, then you won't have a heart attack when you see the numbers at the end. I advise it to anyone going to IBIZA on a big budget.

WOW. this dinner club is a work of art The show goes continuously with acts that would put Las Vegas to shame. such beauty and talent. The club is beautiful on the water with great views and the food worthy of 3 Michelin stars At first we were led to a table that was not good. I said to the front desk that we were going to leave, and did it in a nice way. They did not want me to go and created a beautiful table for us. The crowd was mostly Spanich and Italian with some big tables of Russians. It actually was a great mix, and everyone enjoyed themselves with people talking to each other. Some reviewers mention how expensive it was. Do not go to a place like Lio's if it is a concern. It was worth it you had excellent food and an incredible show with atmosphere. Worth every penny

So, I ate a poor dish and payed a lot, the waiters a really rude, also they charge with little things that never came...
The show is great, indeed, the dancers are awesome, however, after they finis and the club starts you can get kick out of you're table by rude waiters that bring in other customers that order a bigger drink than yours.
It's a wild world out here, anyway again a great show!

The most wonderful dining experience ever. If you want to be entertained non stop for four hours Lio is the place to go. And you can even stay on for a late night club experience. Pricy but well worth it. You would spend more if you had dinner in a five star restaurant in London then went to a show.
It's Iike having dinner in the middle of an eccentric variety show. The staff are part of the entertainment and so courteous, and the food - wonderful, and the backdrop of Ibiza old town is breathtaking. Well done Lio I hope to return again soon.

The setting is amazing looking out at the yachts and a lit up Dalt Villa. The service was so friendly and happy, the food very good and whilst very expensive once you take the show into account it is certainly the best night out in Ibiza. The dancers, singers, acrobats were phenomenal and it was such a happy fun night. Spoilt slightly by letting in anyone later so the place became a giant pick up joint and a bit seedy for the diners but all in all a great night oit
