Expert review of La Vineria

A hidden gem of an intimate wine bar serving deluxe Italian tapas in amongst Ibiza's suburbia.

I love La Vineria all year round – for special occasions with big groups of friends, for a quick snack before clubbing in the summer, for a late night romantic dinner with my boyfriend away from the hustle and bustle of Ibiza’s social scene. The Italian style tapas is great for sharing and the wall-to-wall wine cellar ensures I try a different drop every time.

Food and drink: 

It’s fine Italian food, designed to share in a tapas style, though there is also a selection of dishes that are big enough to eat as a main meal on your own. As the name suggests, there’s also an incredible wine list with over 200 choices to work your way through.

Recommended dishes: 

My suggestions for the best selection to share are very cheesy: aubergine parmigiana (a melt-in-your-mouth flavour sensation), crispy cheese croquettes, fried calamari, mozzarella caprese, beef carpaccio, parma ham and mozzarella and the mushrooms with chilli and cherry tomatoes. And that’s just the beginning…

Ambience: 

There’s a lovely cosy atmosphere in La Vineria no matter when you visit. In winter, it’s protected from the elements and the walls of red wine just tempt you to take cover for longer yet on a balmy summer night. It’s busy, social and fun, with the open terrace a lovely place to kick-start your night.

Service: 

Super attentive, highly knowledgeable and multi-lingual.

Location: 

La Vineria is in a cute little village called Jesus, just outside of Ibiza town, about a five-minute drive away. It’s what I think is Ibiza’s answer to a cool suburb!

Price advice: 

Most of the tapas dishes are an average of 5 euros each, while mains are around 15 euros. Wines range from 10 to 200 euros, depending on your taste and budget.

Other useful branches: 

La Vineria is the baby sister of Marina Botafoch’s premier Italian restaurant Trattoria Del Mar. See the website for links.
