A really good resturant in the Old Town on a busy pedestrian stree full of resturants and street performers. We ate here twice the food was so good. Dont leave it much later than 9.30 to sit down or you wont get a table.

A late night dining out experience to cap off the day. This resturant is situated in the most beautiful scenic area, with the atmosphere to suit. Lots of choices for eating out in this street, plenty of shops to browse and bars to have a drink at. We chose the resturant for it's location and more over it's menu. The table for seven was not available for ten minutes but during the wait we were spectators to the street entertainers who wowed the crowd with Latin folk songs and Brazillian street martial arts dance " Capoiera", drumming a beat to get the crowd charged.

Dining outside is recommended during hot weather and warm balmy nights as the heat from the kitchen fills the inside resturant and it is too warm for comfort. Our browse of the menu soon had our group "ooing & arh'ing" over the variety of choices. Prices are varied but there are some fairly expensive dishes for those who would enjoy a big night out celebrating or for those who like a indulgent treat.

We had bread, Ali aoli to keep our taste buds primed, wine was an easy choice (House Red) both for the price and the fact that any resturant worth their ratings won't put up a poor house wine. We ordered our mains, they arrived looking like culinary art forms that we could feast our eyes on and then our mouths. Everyone happy, all commenting on the level of attentiveness by the waiting team and how every part of the dining experience was top form. We saw the deserts arrive for other diners and they looked like mini sculptures of delicousness but by this time and already well fed we dicided to forego desert.
top tip!
Look at the pictures of the dishes to verify what I say about the location, ambience and the dishes, you will not be disappointed but you will want to experience.

Visited with a group of friends we requested a table and waited 20mins as advised, no problems until we sat down. Almost immediately the staff started squabbling over us giving us the impression they wanted the table back almost immediately which wouldn't have been a problem if they had said so. We ordered wine which was literally thrown at us and poured as much on the table as in the glasses which should have been a sign! The food was served almost as elegantly I had the steak which was ok tbh my friend had seafood risotto which was rather bland and disappointing another friend had salad which was fine and another seafood pasta which was again bland and disappointing we ate regardless and mentioned that the seafood dishes were a bit bland to which my friend was told it was probably as they had ruined it by adding chilli oil! We then mentioned that the service was pretty awful and the waiter said he'd be glad not to see us back again.. All this I could understand if we had been difficult but we really hadn't I just think they can afford to be rude and serve average food as they are on the main tourist strip. My advice don't bother walk a bit further up and find something less touristy.

There are many restaurants in the old town of Ibiza and this is by far the best. The food is exceptionally tasty and reasonably priced (compared to others we visited). We went for a romantic dinner one night and came back the very next night ordering the same dishes as we loved them so much! Highly recommend the chinese style chicken main course. The owner remembered us which we were very impressed by.

The tables are all outside along the beautiful Ibiza streets. In July there are street performers dancing and singing in the streets it's a real festival atmosphere. The staff were all very friendly and the service was just the right speed both nights we visited.

The restaurant is extremely busy in the summer so I recommend booking.

Couldn't recommend it more.

One fine night in Ibiza (my 3rd trip there) when we needed a break from all night clubbing, we walked up the hill in the old town part of ibiza and discovered this gem of a restaurant where the service was exemplary and the food was fresh and delicious. we liked it so much we came back the next night for dinner before flying out. I had the seafood lasagnia on the first night and the 2013 cod with shitake mushrooms and potatoes on the second night. For appetizers, they served some homemade spanish bread with a garlic and anchovie (sounds weird but a surprisingly good combination!) dip and olives. The desert called Dalt Vila named after the restaurant is a chocolate heaven and best to be shared as it fills you upto the brim. All this food was washed down with chilled sangia. The restaurant is ideally loacted on the hill to gave a good view of the performers that took to the streets later on in the evening. I would defnitely go back there again when in Ibiza next.
