Ibiza town's main square, the Vara de Rey, was the place to be for lovers of tapas this weekend

Ibiza town's main square, the Vara de Rey, was the place to be for lovers of tapas this weekend. A specially erected marquee was the venue for a veritable cornucopia of food and wine and with each tapa costing only €1, quite literally hundreds of people turned up!

The reason for the tapa-tent was the second annual Ibiza Gastronomy Week, when various restaurants and wine producers get together to show off the local cuisine of the island.


So popular was the event that many of the restaurants represented in the marquee actually ran out of food and had to ring up for emergency supplies. Many tourists from the mainland took advantage of the cheap prices to sample food they would not normally see in their regions of Spain.


What a pity that the Gastronomy Week takes place when so few foreign tourists are here. Still, with 2300 bars, cafés and restaurants on the island there's every chance to taste and try our delicious food and wine in the other 51 weeks of the year.
