Ibiza joins an illustrious list of world cities – New York, Miami, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Venice, Abu Dhabi, Istanbul, Monte Carlo and Porto Cervo – to be graced with the presence of a Cipriani restaurant.
The brand is world renowned for its style, food and service and here's the reason why they've been so successful over the years;
“The secret of Cipriani isn't about what can be seen or touched, but what can be felt and sensed. It is intangible but palpable. It can't be patented, but even after seventy-five years it hasn't been duplicated by others.”
And they should know what they're doing as it was Giuseppe Cipriani who opened the most famous bar ever in 1931, Harry's Bar in Venice! Birthplace of not only a famous cocktail, the Bellini, but also a famous dish, Beef Carpaccio, the bar was the fruition of Poppa Cipriani's plan to create an establishment that was timeless and impeccably appointed where he would serve others as he wished to be served himself.
like royalty obviously worked as the guestbook at H's attests, brimful of signatures of the rich and famous; Arturo Toscanini, Guglielmo Marconi, Somerset Maughan, Noel Coward, Charlie Chaplin,
Valentina Schlee, Orson Welles, Truman Capote, Georges Braque
Peggy Guggenheim and of course Ernest Hemingway who had his own table in the corner.
So, Cipriani's have brought their Downtown restaurant brand to the east wing of the Five Star Ibiza Gran Hotel where 'simple luxury, relaxed sophistication and timeless elegance' can be enjoyed over two floors.
The main floor features a restaurant with an outside terrace where classic Cipriani cuisine is served and the upper floor, with spectacular views of Ibiza's cityscape across the harbour, is a less formal grill concept.
Open from 20.00 to 03.00 daily, you can contact them on +34 971599 050, or email@example.com
