Expert review of Es Boldado

Ibiza's premier seafood restaurant overlooking the mystical island of Es Vedra.

This restaurant sits on the most prime piece of real estate in Ibiza, but don’t expect posh – this is authentic, rustic and simple all the way. I always book a table for sunset, to watch the sky change colours over the amazing mystical island of Es Vedra. It really does feel like magic is about to happen here… and then your dinner is served.

Food and drink: 

It’s reputedly the island’s very best seafood, cooked in a Mediterranean style, but there’s also a hearty selection of meat and chicken from the grill. All produce is sourced here in Ibiza.

Recommended dishes: 

The oven-baked John Dory is by far and away the best piece of fish you will ever taste in Ibiza, however the paella is a pretty good contender for best dish on the menu, chock-full of chunky seafood and served in huge portions.

Ambience: 

It’s very chilled and relaxed here, perhaps the effects of being in such close proximity to the famous healing energy and magnetism of Es Vedra. So relaxed there are families of smart-thinking stray cats living just outside who’ll come and sit on your lap, gazing at you adoringly, while seducing you into sharing your meal!

Service: 

Superb. They’ve been doing it for over 30 years and really know their stuff - nothing is ever too much.

Location: 

Simply breathtaking, Es Boldado sits high on a hill above the beach of Cala D’Hort with the most amazing view of Es Vedra you will ever see. You can walk up the narrow stairs from the beach by day, but I don’t recommend it after sunset as the tide comes in and you won’t be able to get back down to your car! Your best bet is to make the quick five-minute drive behind the beach and up the hill to avoid being stranded.

Price advice: 

The fish is charged by the kilo and paella is 26 euros per person, and needs to be cooked for two people. A dinner for two can range from 60 to 100 euros.

Tables to book: 

In summer, ask for a table on the terrace and in winter, request a table by the long window, designed to maximise the view.
