Where to eat in and around San Antonio Town, Ibiza: high end to budget

Famed for jaw-dropping views of the sunset promenade and freshly caught seafood, San Antonio Town offers a little bit of something for everyone.

To those really in the know, there’s no doubt that this seaside fishing port has as much to offer as any other island location. Al fresco dining, with sea views, and a stunning variety of choice, from traditional homemade tapas to international cuisines, made with local produce and freshly caught fruits of the sea, this is a town that really deserves its place on the gastro map. 

One of the perks of San Antonio Town's small nature is that it's a beautiful place to just wander. Taking in the ever-changing scenery from long promenade stretches to bustling streets, you’d be surprised how you can get lost amongst the quaint cobbled side streets that hold the secret bars and tucked-away dining spots. 

Luckily however we’re in the know, so check out our recommendations for the best budget to high-end breakfast, lunch and dinner locations.


BUDGET

We begin our journey at the back end of San Antonio, at La Guay. This well-established home-from-home is a regular pit-stop for most locals. And who can blame them? With a coffee and topped tostada coming in at under €6, it’s top quality breakfast at great value prices. The extensive menu also now includes a fresh sushi bar which we are, chopsticks in hand, ready to delve into.

A few steps down the road and you’ll find Kick Ibiza, the health lovers', and gym-goers' dream. Its fully-stocked deli offers fresh salad and protein boxes to eat in or take away, along with a full menu of tasty tummy fillers, sweet treat protein snacks and fruit-packed smoothies.

Fancy visiting another corner of the world, then Mundo Street Food should be next on your travel list. With its mouth-watering twist on international cuisine, this newly established eatery has taken San Antonio by storm. Whatever you order from the menu - breakfast, lunch or dinner - just don’t forget a side of Massaman wedges. You can thank us later.

On the port side, Rita’s Cantina is a San An classic that, despite its unchanging menu, is often packed to the rafters with international guests. As the saying goes, ‘If it ain't broke, don’t fix it’ and although its menu offers mostly breakfast and Indonesian lunch options, it stays popular until nightfall.

For those craving authentic Italian pizza and shawarma then Es Mirai is your place. Close enough to - almost - catch the sunset at Caló des Moro, this excellent pizzeria has stunning garden dining, hosted by some of the nicest Italians in Ibiza.


MID-RANGE

A tough call as to whether it should go in the budget or mid-section, Tapas does exactly as it says on the tin and very, very well. The tapas dishes are all so beautifully made and reasonably priced. So why stop at one when there’s a whole menu to try? They’ve even got the vegans well covered - trust us when we say the vegan aioli and gluten-free bread is one worth swapping sides for.

Back portside, you’ll find The Skinny Kitchen. Serving breakfast, brunch bowls, burgers and a whole heap of goodness from morning to night. For those who like a side order of naughtiness with their nutrition, the cocktail menu is pretty fantastic too.

Savannah holds a prime spot for those stunning sunset dinners. Its long open terrace is perfect to enjoy its Asian-inspired menu which is incredibly reasonable, considering the stunning location. Dinner and views are best washed down with a drink or two from their epic cocktail menu. 

Monkey

Monkey Ibiza  feels aptly named, with its high terrace views that look out upon the expansive sunset vista. A recent addition bringing Parisien sophistication to this corner of Ibiza, it's making its mark with its simple yet stunningly executed menu, great music and staff that are just lovely. It's a newly discovered gem by the Ibiza Spotlight team and we’re loving it. 

In plain sight but often overlooked, La Cantina Canalla creates delicious Peruvian food and fantastic cocktails from its humble home at the foot of San Antonio’s notorious West End. It’s one worth making a beeline for, as is Rincón de Pepe. One of San Antonio's oldest tapas bars, where you’ll find authentic Spanish flavours in true authentic surroundings. 

You could always visit alone but the ethos of Es Gerret is to eat and share good times with friends. The generously-proportioned, modern tapas dishes are executed with stunning quality and finesse, making this restaurant a continuously popular spot with locals and holidaymakers alike.

Towering imperiously over the harbour road, Villa Mercedes makes its presence known before you’ve even stepped inside. Set in beautifully landscaped gardens overlooking the boats in the marina, you can dine on the delicious Mediterranean-fusion menu or chef's tasting menu, as live music sets the tone to a stunning sunset.

Set in a stunning rustic interior, almost hidden away from the bright lights of San Antonio, Es Ventall is a family-run restaurant that wows with every dish. Its menu offers a 21st-century twist on traditional Ibizan cuisine, created by a young chef at the helm who loves to develop innovative dishes from the island’s rich culinary history - one that’s leaps and bounds above the rest.


HIGH END

Housed in an unconsecrated 16th Century church just outside San Antonio, Sa Capella is dining in possibly the finest of Ibiza's interior locations. With a menu almost as established as the stunning stone walls of this beautiful chapel, you can feast on the fish of the day and fine cuts of tender meat. Feeling flush, then go for the Ox steaks, cooked to taste on a hot stone at your table.

Chinese food never tasted so good as it does at sophisticated new hotspot Chi Kee Wun, trust us on that! Light, imaginative and beyond delicious dishes, served in standout surroundings, this is exquisite high-end dining that's well worth the extra spend. 

Set in a pretty finca with a shady garden, Es Tragón is Ibiza’s first winner of the coveted Michelin Star award, on top of two Repsol Sol prizes. Consistently high standards of service and exquisite preparation are what keep this outstanding dining experience in high demand. The Es Tragón taster menus are an absolute must for holidaymaking foodies.

We’ll close in the most appropriate way, with the San Antonio showstopper 528 Ibiza. This, our hungry friends, is no ordinary dining experience. Not when the history of Ibiza is being performed before you, as you enjoy a selection of delicious dishes, prepared by internationally renowned chefs. Acrobats, singers and theatrics of all kinds will keep you entertained as you eat before you can show your own dancing skills in the inside club. An Ibiza experience like no other.
