Wine, dine, drink and dance at Ibiza’s top party restaurants.

Like to have your cake and eat it, too? Why not head on over to a restaurant that cranks it up a notch after and sometimes even during dinner. On Ibiza, everything is possible. You can easily find yourself making a night out of a dinner and beyond.

Here are eight of our favourite foodie havens that pump up the volume and transform into pre-party, proper party and after-party hotspots.


Cova Santa

Ibizan history relates that the cave on which Cova Santa was built used to serve as a refuge for pirates. A big part of the island's hippie movement, this restaurant serves island history with food. Experimental music fills the air, and art covers the walls since the 1950s.

An impressive selection of fine meat and seafood meals is on this menu. Check out their online menu if you fancy. It features mini videos of each dish. The enticement is too much to handle once those images have imprinted your brain.

The Cova Santa events are also something special such as WooMooN. Market stands of food, drinks and jewellery accompanied by ethnic music and local art turn into a rave as the clock strikes 00:00. Also, catch All Day I Dream and Shadows throughout the summer.


Café Mambo

Ah, the famous Café Mambo. A name that everyone drops the second the word Ibiza is mumbled. Starting as a beachfront derelict house, it has become a staple for all who visit the island.

Facing the iconic Ibiza sunset, this is one of the most popular party bars on the entire island. Known for its pre-parties for Pacha, you get to see A-list DJs play here daily and for free, too. From Martin Solveig to Hot Since 82, have your meal with the best of the best soundtrack to your sunset.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Cafè Mambo has mouth-watering menus. Fries topped with truffle oil and Parmesan sounds pretty delicious to me.


Nikki Beach Ibiza

Hidden along the stunning east side of the Ibizan coastline is Nikki Beach. Known globally for its stunning venues and top quality service, this venue will give you stunning views to match the mouthwatering international cuisine.

With a free-range chicken rotisserie, raw and sushi bar, as well as a wide selection of healthful options, the food at Nikki Beach can fit all. At the beach, you want nothing more than high standard seafood. Feast on succulent oysters and spicy tuna rolls here as well.

Rio Ibiza

One of the newer restaurants, Rio Ibiza is top of the San Antonio party restaurant game. Combining everything into one neat package, it spreads across three floors. Restaurant, bar, lounge and club look onto the San Antonio Harbour offering exceptional views.

Destino

Holding weekly events of techno bliss, but keeping its high-class structure that the high-flyers love. This open-air venue has breathtaking views of Talamanca Bay, Dat Vila and the island of Formentera.

Seven menus can seem overwhelming, but Destino simply caters to every taste. Choose from the juice menu, cocktail menu or wine menu. Across the range of pool, lunch and the Modest Restaurant you will find a selection of caviar, lobsters and sushi, only serving the highest quality products, of course.

Every week, Destino brings in a lively crowd for its parties. As Destino is a part of the Pacha Group, keep your eyes out for one-off cross over dates such as Music On, which happens several times throughout the season with Music On | Daytime. Four Destinomakers dates are also in store.

Join Lío Ibiza for a night of cabaret and beyond. This venue offers not only lush food and music but also an entire performance throughout. Be greeted and shown to your seat for a night guaranteed to be astounding.

Definitely playing the role of a high baller, you'll be putting that hand in your pocket for tonight, with a minimum spend of 150 euros per person. In exchange, expect lobsters served on slate vintage telephones, as well as exotic seafood that will entice your eyes and excite your taste buds.

The performers are also the stars of the show. Well, it's a two way battle between them and the gorgeous view of Ibiza Town's harbour and Dalt Vila.
