Summer 2016 in Ibiza was the summer of La Torre, a secluded cliff top restaurant and bar on Cap Negret, just north of San Antonio. With the crew from Mambo having recently taken over the helm, it’s little wonder La Torre is successfully delighting Ibiza locals and tourists alike.

Walking through the arch, seeing the view for the first time, it’s pretty hard not to be swept away. The venue is laid over a rocky plateau, bordered with thick pines on both sides and stark cliffs just several metres walk from the front door. The precipice position provides an uninterrupted, sweeping 180 degree vision of the Mediterranean. The sunsets from here are quite simply, phenomenal.

As well as a restaurant and bar, La Torre is also a guesthouse, with bright, simple rooms, perfect for couples who want peaceful seclusion not too far from the action. But it’s the location, food and atmosphere that lured us, and our visiting friends and family, in to dine and be merry several times over the summer season.

The atmosphere is one of peace and natural serenity during the morning, with a breakfast menu that is healthy, fresh and colourful. We highly recommend making a morning of it and enjoy a round-trip meander along the cliffs either heading North to Cala Salada or South to Cala Gracionetta from La Torre before settling in for a long breakfast/brunch.

In the early afternoon and evening, the place becomes more lively and you start to see that this particular Ibiza secret is not so well kept. DJ’s and occasional live musicians provide ambient music reminiscent of the original Balearic vibe.

The food is modern and creative Mediterranean fare. We’re still working our way through the small menu, however our current favourites include the calamari, anchovies and octopus off the tapas menu and for drinks, the White Sangria deserves special mention!

There are few places that offer such chilled-out class and seclusion to enjoy an Ibiza sea view and sunset. We would expect to spend 60€ minimum per head for food and drink on a fun night out here. Speaking of, good news for Ibiza residents – La Torre is offering 20% discount to residents from 1st November to 31st March!!
