A TASTE OF WINTER DINING IN IBIZA

Updated: Jun 5

With the arrival of February, things are certainly looking peachy with spring just around the corner. For some, winter is prime time in Ibiza. A season to reset and recharge, whilst also make the most of the chill. Beckoning some of the island’s most spectacular sunsets and blissfully tranquil outdoor experiences, it’s a fantastic opportunity to also explore some of Ibiza’s greatest gastronomic delights and cultural events. From iconic institutions to cool newcomers, rest assured winter still breeds new life on the island. Read on for a taste of winter dining in Ibiza to savour this season…


Food at Overall Ibiza

Overall Ibiza

As perhaps one of the most exciting fine dining restaurants on the island, Overall Ibiza is a journey of flavour and taste exploration. The family-run establishment is located in the northern town of Santa Gertrudis and presided over by duo ‘flavour ateliers’ Mónica A. Patiño and partner Jorge A. Conde. Shrouded by a velvet veil behind a concealed doorway, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped into a dim-lit New York bar. Hosting just 22 bar-top seats, Overall Ibiza remains beyond unique and undeniably alluring come the colder months.



With no set menu, one of the culinary highlights is their Omakase experience. Offering three different tiers, including Basic, Pro and Expert, Omake starts as a four-to-five course journey of classic and unique small bites, fusing market ingredients from the very best local producers. From fermented to pickled, smoked to dehydrated, the assortment of flavours vary from Galician, Colombian and Asian influences across the menu. With a drinks pairing on offer, look forward to an equally immersive experience from the bar.

Hambre interior, bar

Hämbre

Santa Eulalia on the east coast of the island has made quite a name for itself in recent years. Lauded as one of Ibiza’s key gastronomic hub, local favourite Hämbre is a perfect winter warmer. Inspired by its coastal positioning, the restaurant is a showcase of local Mediterranean fare fusing flavours from the town’s local ‘Es Mercat’ daily farmers market.



Opened in 2019 by chef Matias Romano and partner fashion photographer Antía Pagant partner. The creative duo’s initial Ibiza venture was Siesta which would later guide the way to the opening of Hämbre a few years later; now bolstered by island culinary superstars, Miguel Lopez and Javier Vazquez. Entranced by the couple’s own love story, the restaurant has undoubtedly stolen the hearts of the town’s locals. 


Inside, a Mid-century aesthetic lures diners in with a sensual vibe soothed by live music and authentic service from staff. The interior evokes a cool seventies feel, abound with antique tiles, retro lighting and vintage decor. With a terrace perfect for the summer, in the winter it’s equally as beguiling.



The menu is ever-changing with new concoctions from the kitchen every couple of days. Expect artistic, high-quality cuisine matched with the finest selection of natural wines and kombucha for those who prefer something a little more saintly. Favourites include a vegan Caesar kale salad and mussels escabeche that will leave your mouth quite literally watering. Cool, slick and fabulous hideaway for the winter months, ensure Hambre is on your dining wishlist.
