• Hotel Rural Can Lluc proposes some experiences to discover Ibiza’s most maritime gastronomy this summer.
Ibiza is well known for its natural environment, beaches, leisure, art, culture, and heritage, but also for its gastronomy based on quality raw materials and local products. All these elements have generated an exceptional gastronomic heritage, which can be enjoyed in numerous taverns and restaurants on the island, two of them with Michelin stars, and several with Repsol Suns. Following the same culinary philosophy, Hotel Rural Can Lluc offers Mediterranean cuisine based on local products supplied by farmers in the area and agricultural cooperatives, as well as national products. Additionally, they produce their own extra virgin olive oil with olives from their harvest. What better way to start the day than with Can Lluc’s excellent breakfasts, surrounded by nature, listening to the birds’ chirping, and savoring high-quality products. Their wine list is also very appealing, covering the national panorama with Designations of Origin such as Rueda, Somontano, Rias Baixas, Penedes, Ribera del Duero, Campo de Borja, La Mancha, and, of course, the wines from the land of Ibiza and Formentera. They have specialized chefs for corporate events and weddings, and families and large groups can also enjoy the menus available at the agrotourism, prepared with much love, their most successful ingredient. On the other hand, the rural hotel adapts to the needs of its customers and pays special attention to families with young children. In summary, Ibiza offers exquisite cuisine from farmers and fishermen. Therefore, the luxurious Hotel Rural Can Lluc proposes some plans to discover Ibiza’s most maritime gastronomy:

1. La Gaia by Óscar Molina

Belonging to Ibiza Gran Hotel, it is the first Michelin-starred hotel restaurant, having just received this recognition in 2022. It also holds two Repsol Suns. This is due to its sophisticated culinary proposal that delves into the local products of the island, drawing inspiration from indigenous raw materials with a menu of unique flavors that enhances the quality of the natural resources of the environment. A sensory and immersive journey that appeals to the five senses and transcends gastronomy. An exclusive experience that values the land and sea products of Ibiza.

2. Port de Balansat

Located in front of the beach of Puerto de San Miguel, the Port Balansat restaurant has been offering travelers the utmost delights for over 50 years with its rice dishes and, above all, with Mediterranean Sea products. Fresh fish and seafood are their hallmark, as they continue to maintain their traditional cuisine, incorporating new dishes, and not neglecting their characteristic maritime cuisine. The “Bullit de Peix” (fish in brine) or the fish stew are essential to enjoy the traditional maritime recipes of Ibiza. Highlights include fish and seafood paellas, lobster creamy rice, or seafood rice.

3. El Chiringuito de Cala Gracioneta

In the municipality of Sant Antoni de Portmany is El Chiringuito de Cala Gracioneta, spacious thanks to the stepped terraces supported by thick stone walls that rise on the hillside surrounding the beach. The gastronomic offer is based on well-prepared grilling, Mediterranean recipes, creative appetizers, and rice dishes. Their most maritime recommendations: a plate of smoked scorpionfish (typical blue fish of the island) with Ibizan potatoes, cuttlefish croquettes, Andalusian-style calamari, seafood and cuttlefish paella, grilled octopus, or Ibizan fish “a la espalda” (grilled).

4. Restaurante El Carmen

Located in Cala d’Hort in front of the islets of Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell, this culinary paradise by the sea is situated. Its specialties are high-quality fresh fish and seafood rice dishes, fish, lobster, or crayfish. What better way to taste them than in a unique, pleasant, family-friendly environment surrounded by nature. The cherry on top is to contemplate a magnificent sunset.

5. Restaurante Es Xarcu

Another dreamy place to enjoy Ibiza’s cuisine is the Es Xarcu restaurant, located in a privileged spot in the cove of the same name. This ‘chiringuito,’ as the owners call it, owes its well-deserved fame after more than 30 years to the maximum quality of its products and a characteristic culinary method with its personal touch, simple but authentic. Now that summer is approaching, visitors can enjoy their terraces, which are located above the sea. The palate will delight in the authentic fresh fish of the island (rotja, denton, grouper, San Pedro) baked with a unique traditional method. Also famous for its fresh red prawn and hand-cut Iberian ham.
