3.5

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.
