They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we need no excuse to indulge in a leisurely brunch with uninterrupted sea views. We were excited to sample Kasbah Ibiza’s new breakfast and brunch menu and enjoyed it so much, we stayed for lunch too. Located in the quieter end of San Antonio’s Sunset Strip, near Calo’ el Moro, this boho styled beachfront restaurant is a cool hangout, perfect for easing yourself gently into the day. It’s attractive terrace with cushioned loungers and elegant turquoise and white décor attracts regular customers time and again throughout the season, popular with locals and tourists.

With locally sourced, fresh ingredients, we were keen to start with some light healthy breakfast options. The inviting Breakfast Sundae was a spectacle of layers including fresh greek yoghurt, seasonal fruit and berry compote, topped with homemade granola. The zing of a freshly prepared orange, carrot and ginger juice offered the perfect accompaniment. Hot options were also plentiful and included a delicious vegetarian breakfast made up of poached eggs, smashed avocado and perfectly grilled asparagus with toasted seeded bread and cress. It would have been rude not to sample the delicious Bloody Mary, although a virgin option is available, in true Ibiza style we opted for the fully charged tomato based cocktail – it does of course count towards your ‘five a day’.

Whilst relaxing on the blissfully chilled-out terrace, it is easy to lose track of time; breakfast, brunch and lunch soon merge together. Kasbah Ibiza’s expertly balanced lunch menu offers further light, healthy options such as the colourful ancient grain and feta salad. This concoction of wild rice, seeds and grains mixed with kale and pomegranate is a rainbow of flavour. For those in need of a serious recovery lunch, try the towering Kasbah burger. This feast includes a delicious homemade burger topped with smoked bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion rings, seasoned with a speciality homemade sauce. Accompanied with crispy skin sweet potato fries, this will set you up for the rest of the day.

In addition to a full cocktail and wine list, Kasbah Ibiza stands out from the crowd following its recent collaboration with Botink, a local producer of tonic water on the island. Offering a wide selection of aromatic pairings, even the most ardent gin expert will be impressed. Kasbah also works alongside Botink to offer Hierbas workshops for those interested to learn the history of this local spirit and mix your own blend to take home. Tempting as it is to stay for tapas and dinner too, we will be back soon to sample more at this perfect seafront hang out.
