Where to grab a great burger on Ibiza

From meat-lovers to vegans - who doesn't love a burger?

Few things satisfy a growling appetite like a succulent burger.

Whether you really want to indulge or are looking for a quick bite to grab on the go, the burger is a versatile all-rounder. There's just something that panders to our primal urge about a slab of something delicious sandwiched in a bun, accompanied by garnish, sauce and extra toppings.

Whilst Ibiza might be an island known for its traditional Mediterranean cuisine and fusion styles, there's still plenty of room for the humble (and the not so humble) burger.

Without further ado, here are our top picks to grab a great burger whilst on Ibiza. For a complete list, head to our burgers home page.


Kitchen 62

Cala de Bou in San Antonio Bay

Kitchen 62 - Peter Young - 2021

Anywhere the locals descend en masse, you should probably pay attention to. That’s as true of Ibiza as it is anywhere else - and Kitchen 62 in Cala de Bou in San Antonio Bay definitely ticks that box. It’s small, outdoor terrace is heaving with families, couples and groups of friends every evening.

Your meal comes served on a wooden paddle with a traditional newspaper replica and the fries, which are made from Ibiza-grown potatoes, are served in a miniature fryer - cute! If you like a little kick, then either the cajun or Mexican burger are big on flavour.

The staff will ask you how you like your meat cooked. If you’re feeling a little bit daring, then request your pattie rare!


Hard Rock Café

Ibiza Town

Hard Rock Café is almost as famous for its burgers, as it is for its haul of Rock N' Roll memorabilia. Since 1971, the global franchise has been big on its burger range. Its restaurant in Ibiza Town is no exception, with an emphasis placed on this true American classic.

The Surf & Turf Burger is a colossal stack of steak, deep-fried panko-battered prawns, topple-down spring onions, coleslaw bed and spicy Marie Rose sauce. Equally filling, the bulging Original Legendary Burger comes with a whopping onion ring and rashers of bacon.

Those with insatiable appetites might fancy the challenge of limited edition Messi Burger. It comes with two seared patties, a fried egg, provolone cheese, chorizo, red onions, Hard Rock's tangy signature sauce, lettuce and tomato inside a brioche bun. It is, well, messy!


Es Birra

Es Caná, near the hippie market

Es Birra - Peter Young - 2021

Located next to the famous Punta Arabi hippy market in Es Caná, Es Birra is a big favourite, famed for its great but affordable food. After an afternoon trawling the market stalls, its laid back and welcoming vibe is just what you’ll be looking for.

You can't go wrong with any of the half-dozen burger choices. Each comes with a chunky 200 gram pattie of meat or plant-based alternative.

We wager you'll "umm" and "ahhh" over the picana BBQ and crispy chicken, but we're partial to the Frenchie with its raclette cheese, tartar sauce and pickles. It's the kind of burger you won't find anywhere else.


Pennsylvania Burger

San Antonio

From the outside, Pennsylvania Burger in the small streets right in the centre of San Antonio doesn't look like much. If you didn't know it was there, you'd be forgiven for walking straight passed. Yet every evening you can guarantee a queue to be forming, even before the shutter is open.

Pennsylvania Burger may only open from 19:00 in the evening onward, but it makes its short opening times count. For the modest price of €6.50 you get a whooping cheeseburger, with lettuce, onion and beef tomato freshly made to order.

That's half the price you'd pay at one of the franchised fast-food chains. It's an Ibizan institution for a reason. So order, grab a caña and sit while you wait for your delicious burger.

Vinyl

Sant Jordi

What does the name Vinyl mean to you? It probably conjures images of 12-inch records being spun by DJs - are we right? But when we hear "Vinyl", we instinctively think of food and more specifically, burgers.

Even the thought of the vegetarian, with its seitan, lentil and carrot pattie, tomato relish and salad garnish has us drooling. With a fine selection of craft beers and regular programmed entertainment, there are plenty of reasons to give Vinyl in the village of Sant Jordi near to Playa d'en Bossa a spin.


202 Hamburger & Delicious

Ibiza Town

Thriftstore-chic meets American diner with a dash of Italian magic - welcome to local favourite in Ibiza Town, 202 Burger

We tried a couple of its specials, the 202 with a delicious beef pattie, perfectly cooked, melted cheese, the best brioche bun we've ever had, topped-off with caramelized onions. Then the Kickass, which adds chicken, onion rings, crispy bacon and its special ranchero sauce. Just wow!

The portions are generous, the sides are delicious (shout out to the onion rings!). Highly recommended.


Can Garage

On the road to Santa Eulalia

Can Garage

The barbecue and motorcycling enthusiasts at Can Garage near Santa Eulalia are the next contenders to throw their hats into the best burger ring. They're passionate about flavoursome meat cooked to perfection and this is no more evident than in their luscious burger range.

Can Garage's meat is smoked on Can Garage's custom cooker - an impressive piece of kit. Don't get kitchen envy! The process gives Can Garage's signature flavour that can't be replicated anywhere else.

Can Garage

Juices flow from the Tipsy Texan, with its slow-cooked pulled pork and lashings of BBQ sauce. Take a deep breath of those aromas. Even the "classic" hamburger is extra here, coming with crispiest of bacon and bags of flavour from the pickles.

Usual dining etiquette goes out the window when burgers are on the menu. Which is good news when it comes to some of these towering burgers. So put your knife and fork down, get a pile of napkins on stand-by and grab boldly with both hands.

Get stuck right in, we won't judge.
