Expert review of Shardana

Hidden in a grungey back street is this slick Italian restaurant attracting Ibiza's cool crowd.

An island secret I was almost too hesitant to share, Shardana is a breath of fresh air amongst the tacky tourist traps in the back streets of Bossa. But having built up a great local following in just two years with its fab Italian fare and cool weekly aperitivo nights, I think it’s too good to keep a secret any longer.

Food and drink: 

Fine Italian, based on Sardinian cuisine with a slight international twist.

Recommended dishes: 

If the free food at the aperitivo every Friday night doesn’t entice you (and let me assure you, it is seriously good food, for hours and hours on end), it’s all about the seafood pastas.

Ambience: 

The low-key location makes it feel even more special, like you’ve stumbled on a secret that’s almost too good to share. On Aperitivo In Music nights (Friday), the place changes to have an underground party vibe, with the world’s coolest DJs dropping in to play unannounced while at other times there’s a friendly relaxed atmosphere.

Service: 

Friendly and very knowledgable on every Ibiza topic you can imagine - from the food (of course), the language, music and parties - Oscar, Yohann and Loris have been on the island for so many years they have their finger on multiple pulses!

Location: 

Hidden away within the run-down back streets of Playa D’en Bossa, it’s really a seek and ye shall find mission to get here. Find the now defunct nightclub Masque and you’re on the right street – then peer through the gates of the old squash centre diagonally across the street and you’ll be rewarded!

Price advice: 

My advice is to go when the food is free on Friday nights, when you pay as little as 5 euros for a glass of wine and can eat all the bite-sized bits and plates of pasta you can fit in. At other times, the set lunch menu is just 10.50 euros and mains are between 16 and 25 euros.
