Restaurants with a story behind that year after year have managed to forge the fame that only the oldest establishments on the island achieve. Enjoy any at time of the day their tasty dishes that these restaurants with years of experience will prepare for you, as they have always done: with care and tradition.


Ca n’Alfredo

In the heart of the Paseo Vara de Rey we find one of the most iconic restaurants on the island, Ca n’Alfredo, serving the best of Mediterranean and Ibizan cuisine since 1934, when it was known as “Restaurante Verner and Gertrudis”. Its new name is due to the eldest son of a German family who fled nazi Germany to run this establishment in 1936. Finally, in 1941 the Riera family took its place running it up until the present day. It’s been already three generations devoted to the business. And what is so special about Ca n’Alfredo? Essentially, everything that a great restaurant should aspire to: great service, great cooking of Ibizan and Mediterranean dishes and using the best products of the land. The three basic rules that Ca n’Alfredo has always believed in.


Es Ventall

In 1982 the Boned family opened a small Ibizan cuisine restaurant in the heart of Sant Antoni, Es Ventall. Their goal was to offer quality dishes from traditional recipes of the island. Flavorful dishes that delight even the most demanding gourmets of local cuisine. The big change in this iconic restaurant came in 2005, when the son of the family returned to the island after learning and training in top class restaurants in mainland Spain. Now their traditional cuisine fuses with the newest techniques offering sophisticated dishes but without losing focus on their traditional taste.


Can Berri Vell

A place full of history, established in the old house of Can Berri Vell, one of the most important families in the village of Sant Agustí who held this privileged location opposite the village church. This house with over 400 years of history, still retains the essence of Ibizan architecture, with its whitewashed walls, juniper beams and various old country tools that will teleport us to a more bucolic time. Dining on its terrace is a pleasure for the senses as, besides of having one of the most charming atmospheres, you can enjoy the outstanding cuisine that chef Bruno makes with care and love every night. Can Berri house has many architectural reference for riggers and appears in the “Architecture Guide Ibiza and Formentera” by Elias Torres.


Ca na Ribes

Bartolomé Tur Clapés founded in 1926 a restaurant with an authentic Ibizan cuisine taste in the heart of the town of Santa Eulalia, one of the oldest restaurants on the island still active. Today it is run by the same family, where even the great-granddaughter of the founder works at in the present. With the intention of maintaining the essence of its beginnings, they offer traditional recipes yet with a constantly renovating menu. Visit Ca na Ribes located on the lively street of Sant Vicent, where most restaurants in Santa Eulària are concentrated and enjoy their dishes either on their outdoor terrace, in its cozy dining room or in the wonderful inner patio, perfect for enjoying a dream dinner with more privacy.


Restaurante 2000

Restaurante 2000 is one of the most traditional restaurants in north of the island. At first glance it looks like a regular fish and seafood restaurant, but in fact here they’ve been perfecting the technique since 1979. So many years of experience! One of the secrets of its delicious seafood rice dishes resides in the high quality of the catch, freshly caught every day with two llaüts (traditional Ibizan fishing sailboats) of the Escandell family, the same family that runs the restaurant, exclusively supplying Restaurante 2000
