Ibiza's best restaurants to dine and party in one night

Where to start the party after the dessert has gone down

You're out for a great dinner - the last spoonful of dessert has been licked, the complimentary chupitos have been chugged, and everyone is feeling frisky. But, what next? Where can you go to get the party started? Well luckily, in Ibiza, the answer is "not very far...!"

This island is the place where top-quality gastronomy and world-class DJ's collide. So, it's inevitable you can combine both a good meal and a proper shindig all under one roof. 

Here is a roundup of our favourite spots to get you up and dancing once the dishes have been cleared away. 


CAFÉ MAMBO

San Antonio

A permanent fixture on everyone's island bucket list, Cafe Mambo is now an Ibiza institution in its own right. From its humble roots as a derelict beachfront home, the stunning setting has grown into a world renowned brand with its own stamp on sunset.

With four areas to dine, dance and drink it offers both foodies and music lovers a place to meet. Open from 10am to 3am and with an international menu as big as its cocktail list - the strawberry daiquiri is a favourite of ours - you can while away the hours in this sun-drenched spot.

Of course, it's those sunset hours that really are the cream on the cake - you can experience world famous DJs serenading you as you watch the sun dip beneath the horizon. Then the tempo rises, as the pre-parties begin, and you never know who might take the controls.


STK IBIZA

Ibiza

Marina Botafoch plays host to some of the most glamorous venues, and international Steakhouse brand STK Ibiza sits at the top of this glittering list. Don’t be fooled however by the simple Steakhouse title, because this luxury venue is really anything but.

Its American heritage can be seen in every offering. From steaks to seafood, the menu is big and brassy, accompanied with a supersized cocktail list and bottle menu to boot. Fancy something a little different for dessert? Then why not take a look at the flavour filled shisha menu.

This unique venue bounces with pumping House tunes and high-octane performances and is definitely NOT for a quiet night out! With events running throughout the season and collaborations with world-class DJs and exotic performers, STK is the perfect place for dinner to turn into a full-blown party.


LÍO

Ibiza

Well established as the Cabaret Queen of Ibiza, Lío truly does reign supreme from its port side setting of Marina Botafoch. Open every evening, bar Monday, Lio offers a decadent experience where the dress code reflects the elegant surroundings.

Its glamour all the way, so prepare to be dazzled as the stage is lit up with a different but equally captivating show every night. It's not just the cabaret that’s next level, the menu and the views are also something quite special. The Mediterranean menu is served with an innovative twist, that's accompanied beautifully with a stunning view of Ibiza Town's marina and old town Dalt Vila. 

When the show stops the night doesn’t end there. After dinner the stage becomes yours as the venue transforms into a nightclub until the early hours.


528 IBIZA

San Antonio

After a fantastic opening season in 2021, San Antonio’s dining and cabaret extravaganza, 528 Ibiza, delivers even more in ‘22. The venue now sports a new indoor theatre, extra dining space and a fully revamped, high-octane show, that evolves into a full-on nightclub as the evening unfolds

528 Ibiza is the west coast’s most complete multi-sensorial dining experience and a place where audience participation is completely embraced. Learn about the history of the island by way of the dynamic stage performance and the carefully-curated cuisine, before getting your rocks off for a full night of clubbing to the sound of top resident and surprise guest DJ’s. The atmosphere is electric!


Beachouse

Playa d’en Bossa

Beachouse is a little slice of tropical shorefront heaven, located upon the sandy stretch of Playa d’en Bossa beach. With its stunning views upon the sun soaked beach, this really is the decadent beach destination the Ibiza chic call home.

With talented chefs behind the helm, you can enjoy a menu bursting with flavoursome Mediterranean delights as the waves - almost - lap your toes.

Although every night invites you to dine and dance, Thursday nights are the shimmering peak to the week. Here Camilo Franco’s wonderful BOHO events offer the ultimate dinner experience, where fashion, music and art all come together under one starry sky. We couldn’t think of a better way to end the week, when music and moonlight meet.


NIKKI BEACH IBIZA

S'Argamassa

As a world renowned resort, Nikki Beach Ibiza showcases this established brand in its finest light - with a little Ibiza attitude on top! 

This piece of paradise is hidden away from the mainstream masses, offering a taste of luxury along the Santa Eulalia coastline. Its mouthwatering international menu, with an added Spanish twist, is there to indulge in, night or day. Dine al fresco in the beautiful restaurant or take it to the daybed and relax poolside, as guest DJ’s and musicians serenade you with the latest Balearic beats.

Watch out for their regular special events throughout the summer, including the notoriously lively Sunday Brunches and several unique dinner and dance experiences, all to be enjoyed with stunning, beachfront views. 


LA LLAMA

Santa Eulalia

The gastronomic centre piece of the infamous W Hotel, La Llama is located along the scenic promenade of the sophisticated Santa Eulalia Bay. Behind it's secret door - where the finest cuisine, wines and cocktails lie - a truly immersive dining experience awaits.

For the best experience, start off your night at the hotels inviting Bridge Bar, with a cocktail tailored to your taste buds, before, following the alluring narrative into La Llama itself, where flames from the open kitchen will ignite your passion. An array of delicious, Eastern Mediterranean inspired dishes will blow you away with the intricacy of each plate and the exotic palette of flavours you may not have experienced before.

An alluring space, perfectly designed for captivating audio-visual events, it is the town's only true nightclub. Below boasts both an incredible sound system as well as hypnotic lighting apparatus, to give you the ultimate dine and dance experience.


D Lounge - Destino

Cap Martinet

We can only nod our heads in agreement with the Destino Pacha Resort's self titled status, as the ultimate adult playground. Perched upon Cap Martinet, with views of the glittering Ibiza town and Formentera, this stunningly elegant venue plays host to hotel, pool, restaurant and nightclub.

Its al fresco, palm fringed D Lounge however, is one of the island’s most opulent day-to-night dining experiences. Here you can enjoy a delicious menu of fresh island produce, meat and fish or an astounding array of sushi, while you sip on delicious cocktails and watch the lights in the city come alive.

D Lounge is Pacha baby after all, so the night could only be completed with top name DJs and infectious dance tunes to accompany the night sky. If you're lucky, you might catch one of the big summer events when the likes of Solomun or Marco Carola are on the hotel's main stage - an experience you’ll never forget.


Pamelas at Pikes Hotel

San Antonio

Homage to a long lost love and muse of the hotel’s famous founder Tony - Pamelas restaurant is the beating heart of Pikes Hotel. However, this passion pink, al fresco dining space is no ordinary dining room!

Dine under the stars as the night falls on their decadently delicious menu. Or feast on the famously sumptuous Sunday Roasts. Either way, the famous Pamelas cocktails are perfect anytime of the day but there’s something more intoxicating to them, as the night falls and the moon rises above. 

Music is always the theme here, and one they have down to perfection at Pikes. With the Pikes House Band warming up Saturday nights, or the riotous Sunday Sessions by the pool, you’ll soon be up out of your seat shimmying and singing along. Find out what surprises await you in the infamous Freddies until the early hours.


RIO IBIZA

San Antonio

Located on the San Antonio harbour front, Rio Ibiza offers a swanky setting in this west side island spot. With a restaurant, bar and lounge across three floors, this multi-level venue is leading the way in the dine and dance revolution for San Antonio.

The ground floor open plan restaurant offers the perfect location to people watch, as you sip on one of the lush house cocktails. It’s from here you can also enjoy the international a la carte menu, or head upstairs to catch the night from a different vantage point.

From the rooftop terrace gaze out to sea and the sunset as you tuck into their grill barbecue menu, complemented with locally sourced fresh steaks and seafood. After the sun goes down, join the crowds on the dancefloor on the middle level and you’ve got the perfect night.


COTO IBIZA

San Rafael

COTO has fast become one of Ibiza’s - not so secret anymore - little gems. Fusing Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine, it offers a mouth-watering menu to set the taste buds alight. Priding itself on its authenticity, its reverence to both cultures can be seen in the detail, such as using only 100% original ingredients in its dishes. You’ll also see this in the beautifully decorated inside and outside spaces, with the garden a shrine to Eastern Asia.

While these are reason enough for its growing island popularity, they can’t take all the limelight. Its post-dinner DJ nights on Fridays have certainly got Ibiza talking - as once the dinner has gone down, everyone joins in the dance. Here you can fiesta till the early hours, in a party that weaves ethnic, Afrotech sounds with Deep Melodic House to get the diners up on their feet. 


WOW Ibiza

Santa Gertrudis

Like a lush oasis for the cool crowd, WOW Ibiza is a beautifully embellished and adorned space that has fast become home for the island's who’s who.

WOW has worked hard to create a home-from-home feel, and this can be fully experienced in its beautiful gold trimmed, jungle terrace. From morning to night you can relax here with friends whilst enjoying its brasserie-style, locally sourced and supported menu. Don’t forget to take a look over the cocktail menu, which can be in hand as you shimmy the night away.

A big fan of supporting Ibiza talent also, you’ll find the latest island DJs filling the floor most nights of the week. With an adjoining boutique you could even fit in an outfit change. Well why not, you’re in Ibiza and this is island living at its finest!
