A taste of... Las Dos Lunas

A temple of fine homemade Italian cuisine and something of an island institution.

Now well into its fourth decade, Las Dos Lunas is something of an island institution. Cosy, welcoming and beautifully decorated, this temple of fine homemade Italian cuisine has been beloved by diners ever since 1981. After dining here, it’s easy to see why. 

Las Dos Lunas stands proudly on the main Ibiza-San Antonio Road, just a stone’s throw from superclub Amnesia. It’s a gorgeous setting: a beautiful, spacious terrace with terracotta walls, surrounded by bright pink and purple bougainvillaea, a palm tree and vines, and decorated with quirky art and a good deal of memorabilia. The ample space and large wooden tables with comfortable chairs make dining here a pleasure. 

On arrival, we were welcomed by hostess and family member (it’s very much a family affair), Luna. Our waiter for the night, Anna, showed us to a cosy nook beneath the shade of a lime tree. Throughout the meal she was attentive without being intrusive, warm without being over-familiar; in short, a total professional. If Spotlight gave out awards for service, she’d be a contender!

Within minutes, a plate of mouth-watering finest Italian mortadella appeared with springy, home-baked bread. For drinks, we opted for a Spanish white, a crisp Verdejo from its extensive wine list.

Next to arrive were the starters. The perfectly cooked baked aubergines Parmigiana style had us licking our lips, especially after sprinkling grated parmesan over it. The Caprese salad featured a generous portion of bufala mozzarella served on a bed of fresh tomatoes and aromatic basil from the restaurant’s kitchen garden. The latter provides many of the vegetables and herbs used in creating its fabulous fare. 

Our main dish consisted of two kinds of pasta. Farfalle ‘al telefono’ with fresh tomato, mozzarella and basil and veal ravioli in a rich sage and butter sauce. Both were very tasty.

Anna then brought out a tray of tempting desserts. We were treated to a full-flavoured tiramisu and panna cotta in a strawberry sauce. Best of all was the abanico (or fan) made of delicate chocolate wafers with scoops of wonderfully zingy mint ice cream that refreshed our palates. 

Our fellow diners ranged from small groups of friends to couples and entire families. It’s easy to understand why people come back here again and again, safe in the knowledge they’ll find the same high level of hospitality and gastronomy.

Consistency, professionalism, fine cuisine: these are the pillars on which Las Dos Lunas has built its well-deserved reputation. Add on atmosphere in abundance and you have the perfect setting for a romantic meal or the starting point for a great night out in Ibiza.

But don’t take our word for it; book a table and find out for yourself the recipe for success!
