Expert review of Sunset Ashram
Sunset Ashram leaves me (almost) lost for words. But it’s not just the beachside location or the drop-dead amazing view, it's the huge cross-selection of Indian-Thai-Mediterranean food, the Goa-meets-Balearic and the overall hippy-esque vibe of the place. Lounging around on the circular terrace instantly makes you forget all your troubles and feel like you haven’t got a care in the world… it really is something else, capturing the true spirit of Ibiza in my opinion.
The menu is a fusion of traditional – and very authentic – Indian curries, fresh seafood plucked straight from the Mediterranean and succulent grilled meats. And it works – everything is of the absolute highest quality, befitting its amazing location.
I always start with the beef satay skewers, with “gado gado” sauce and a small citrusy salad that is out of this world. The Thai flavoured mussels are a popular choice, in a steaming broth of coconut, lemongrass and coriander, as is the seared tuna with wasabi and pickled ginger – yum! For main, my favourites are the lamb shank tahali, the chicken curry and the top notch classic grilled steak, served on sweet potato gratin with mustard sauce. If the summer heat is making your appetite a bit too small for such hearty dishes, the carpaccio options are amazing light bites and the marinated beef salad with honey and soy is good too.
It’s very bohemian, free-spirited and hippy, from the swirling hand-painted walls and signs to the rustic-chic décor (the owner was originally the artistic director of Studio 54, so he knows how to make a statement!) and regular mish-mash of eclectic clientele from all over the world. Sunset is a ritualistic experience, as a collective hush falls over the crowd and dramatic music accompanies the view.
Surprisingly very good for a place that seems so bohemian and laidback. If you want food and drinks on the beach you’ll need to order from the bar window, but the restaurant’s table service is speedy and friendly too.
On the peak of the hill separating the two sides of Cala Conte beach with views straight across to neighboring rocky islands and of course, the point where the sun sinks into the sea.
A curry with rice averages at 15 euros, salads are around 14 euros and fish and meat dishes are between 20 and 25 euros.
While every table guarantees a great view, the booth tables around the perimeter of the restaurant are the very best for sunset.
