Food festival fetes earth and sea

Ibiza Sabor pays homage to local produce featured in specially priced menus and tapas.

Ibiza Sabor, the bi-annual food festival returns for its spring edition from today until 28 May 2017, with over 50 restaurants across the island taking part in this celebration of local produce.

Menus are €25 for a three-course menu held over many restaurants with other eateries offering delicious tapas dishes.

As usual, the event pays tribute to products that are emblematic of Ibiza; this year the colour red is prominent of produce taken from the earth and surrounding seas.

Local lobster will be making a big mark on the menu as will red Ibizan prawns, crimson pimentón infused sobrasada sausage and earth-red potatoes - all as local as you like.

Royalty restaurant in Santa Eulalia, one of the tapas venues

Among the many restaurants taking part is El Restaurante (Pacha Hotel), Ca na Ribes and Surf Lounge for the fixed-price menus. Then, two legendary places, Royalty restaurant and Bar Anita will be offering tasty tapas.

More local products like the prized rockfish, peix fort as well as gorgeous local lamb is on offer. All will have other local ingredients mixed in like local salt, olive oil, organic vegetables, wild herbs and the famous local liqueur, hierbas.

Local Ibizans until recent times ate hyper-local, taking everything they ate from land and sea and making their own wine at home. Their estimable diet was based mainly on fish, vegetables, seasonal fruit, nuts and bread.

Foodies, local food lovers, amateur chefs or just the plain greedy - all of you will adore this event so make sure you get local on the foods of Ibiza.

A complete list of participating restaurants including menus is available here.
