Expert review of Sands Beach Restaurant

Buzzing beach bar with authentic Japanese kitchen plus Asian-meets-Mediterranean menu.

This is by far and away one of Ibiza’s coolest beach bars, great for chilling out by day then easing into party mode as the sun goes down. The food is truly outstanding – I go here at least once a week, if not more in summer and expats flock here for the hospitality of owner Jason Bull and his local team.

Food and drink: 

Classic beach snacks, burgers and Asian-influenced hot dishes, plus a popular Japanese kitchen serving hot and cold classics.

Recommended dishes: 

The Sands sushi roll is nothing less than incredible, as is the vegetarian roll (which surprised me to tell the truth) and the presentation of all the sushi is beyond impressive. The chicken yakitori is a melt-in-your-mouth taste sensation, the chicken satay sticks are as good as any you’d find in Thailand and two of my favourite quick beachside snacks. For more hearty mains, the chicken supreme is an amazing curry-fried chicken with a mango sauce that’s pretty darn special but my all-time favourite is the huge, almost bottomless bowl of goodness, known simply as Thai-style chicken-fried rice. It’s so good I eat it at least once a week.

Ambience: 

Sunshine, smiles and sangria pretty much sums it up! By day, there’s a relaxed vibe over lunch, whether in the shade of the restaurant or out on the sun loungers, and as the sun goes down the vibe picks up as local and international DJs spin party beats to get you in the mood for the night ahead.

Service: 

It can be a little lacking on busy days, due to being slightly understaffed in my opinion, but the actual service is super friendly, from the well-known local waitresses to the über-polite new Japanese chefs who personally bring your sushi to the table.

Location: 

Right on the beach at Playa D’en Bossa, Sands is behind the huge Fiesta Don Toni hotel and pretty much directly across the road from Space, as the crow flies. The view is unbeatable.

Price advice: 

It’s not your average beach bar, so the prices are more of a restaurant standard, think mains from 14-25 euros and sushi platters at around 25 euros.

Tables to book: 

There’s a super cool four-poster Balinese VIP bed that can be specially reserved and a cordoned off VIP area too, should you request it.

Other useful branches: 

Sands is part of the successful group that also own Hotel Es Vive and Base Bar.
