Food and drink
Hearty, homemade dishes drawing on Mediterranean and South American traditions, cheap and cheerful wines and icy cold bargain beer.
Everything! Argentinian shepherd’s pie, orange-glazed roast chicken, pork loin with honey mustard sauce, warm goats' cheese salad, pan-grilled chicken breast with gorgonzola sauce… just to name a few, and none of that is more than 5 euros. My top tip: choose the mashed potato as your accompaniment, it’s flavoured with nutmeg and truly addictive.
It’s quite frenetic in Los Pasajeros, but fun, with pumping loud techno music, multiple languages being shouted across the tiny room and open kitchen, plus scores of people spilling down the stairwell as they wait for tables.
Fast, friendly and quite funny too – the staff here love a party as much as everyone in Ibiza and sometimes their moods can make the whole restaurant feel like a pre-party, particularly on a Monday, in between Circo Loco and Cocoon sessions.
You’ll find Los Pasajeros the thick of the port action, up a tiny staircase through a discreet little doorway between many of the typical tourist trap restaurants.
Main meals are between 4 and 7 euros while the house wine is a mere 4 euros a bottle.
Tables to book
The balcony table is quite possibly one of Ibiza’s most in-demand tables. It can’t be booked but I recommend arriving at early doors, around 8pm, if you want to score this prime position, then watch all the passers by below gaze up in envy.
