Expert review of JD’s Beach Bar Bistro

Typically British bistro with picture-perfect beachfront location and a legendary Sunday roast.

I have to admit, I try and shy away from anything declaring too proudly to be British in Ibiza… we’re in Spain after all. But on the insistence of many English friends, I gave JD's (named for ever-so-lovely owners Joanne and Darren) a go… and now it’s my favourite place on the island for breakfast, hearty hangover meals and pre-Space Sunday roasts. Especially since it’s right on the beach and has WiFi.

Food and drink: 

As the Union Jacks flying outside will testify, it’s proudly British, with all produce and ingredients imported direct from "Blighty".

Recommended dishes: 

For me, it’s all about the huge full English breakfast. With extra hash browns. Then I can move onto the beer battered fish and chips. Or a hearty jacket potato with cheddar and baked beans. And of course on a Sunday, it’s all about the roast dinner.

Ambience: 

It can get pretty rowdy in here, especially if the football is on the TV inside, though if you take a seat out on the sunny terrace it’s much quieter and has a million dollar view. You’ll be rubbing shoulders with half of the DJs in town to play at Space, plus ex-rock stars, footballers and local heroes.

Service: 

Some of the wait staff can be a little ditsy at times but everything’s done with a smile and food is served up fast.

Location: 

At the far end of Playa d’en Bossa, just before Figueretes, right on the promenade. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Price advice: 

Breakfast is around 7 euros and the roast is 12.50 euros. Everything else is in between.

Tables to book: 

If you can’t bear to miss the footy while you’re on holiday, be sure to request a table in front of the telly, or if (like me) you couldn’t care less who scored a goal, ask for a seat under a shaded umbrella outside.
