La Dispensa Ibiza

As the island slowly swings back into its vibrant groove, one by one our favourite venues are reopening their doors for the 2018 season. One of Ibiza’s most creative and mouth-watering culinary concepts, charming Dalt Vila eatery La Dispensa Ibiza is welcoming back its loyal following of guests for summer 2018.

  • La Belle Ibiza Sunday BBQ celebrates the opening weekend in style. The sun shone as islanders headed to San Rafael for the first La Belle Ibiza Sunday Brunch BBQ. With stalls lining the garden offering unique goods from Ibiza's artisans as well as some delicious crepes, a roaring BBQ, great music from talented island based DJs and theatrical performances, it was a welcome return for the celebrated French Kitchen.

  • Our friends at Smart Charter Ibiza invited us to travel to Cala Tarida on one of their yachts and needless to say we didn’t need asking twice. Leaving the harbour of Ibiza Town on a 16.5 meter Cranchi 50 named Sweet Dreams – a crisp glass of champagne in hand – we felt indeed on cloud nine as we floated past the picturesque Dalt Vila and out into the open sea. En route to Cala Tarida, we flew past the long stretch of sand of Playa d’en Bossa and Salinas beach before heading towards the mysterious rock island of Es Vedra, which is just around the corner from Cotton Beach. With the wind in our hair and the finest house beats in our ears, we had to pinch ourselves to make sure we weren’t dreaming.
