Food and drink
A combination of modern Mediterranean cuisine, home style cooking and English classics.
The roast pumpkin salad sets a new standard when it comes to chunky, flavorsome salads but my all-time favourite (at least three times a month) is Friday’s fish and chips with peas and the deluxe roast dinner on Sundays.
Having lunch or dinner at Ocho reminds me of what Ibiza may have been like back in the 1970s. Celebrities dine beside locals who are mingling with DJs who’ve brought along their supermodel girlfriends and their dogs, such is the eclectic, bohemian collection of clientele. Buzzing, social and a place to see and be seen.
Owner Leah Tilbury is literally the "hostess with the most-ess", having grown up on the island and knowing everything and everyone. She runs the restaurant with a friendly, welcoming air that makes everyone feel like a VIP.
On the famous San Juan “Restaurant Road”, you’ll spot Ocho thanks to the colourful lights shining up in the trees at night, or the multi-coloured façade by day. The car park full of Range Rovers is a good giveaway too.
Main meals are between 15-25 euros in summer and, in winter, the prices drop dramatically much to the joy of year round residents - fish and chips is just 9.50 euros and the amazing Sunday roast is 16.50.
