Welcome! In this article we will give you an elaborate view into the 10 best paella restaurants in Ibiza.
It’s no secret that Ibiza is one of the best places in the world to eat Paella.
All of our top 10 are unique restaurants from various locations around the island.
There are some from the south of the island, east coast, west coast, and even one from Formentera (*number 11 below*).
If you are a foodie you do not want to miss one of the best gastronomic experiences in Ibiza, read on!
From my point of view, even though the Paella is originally from Valencia , the one in Ibiza is much better.
The original recipe has snails, rabbit and artichoke, the ” Paella Ibicenca ” is nicer trust me.
El Carmen, Cala D´Hort
Restaurante El Carmen is known for its iconic views of Es Vedra (pictured below) from its terrace, and its wonderfully tasty paella and seafood dishes.
This beach restaurant is a perfect place to enjoy some of the best Paella on the island, and to watch the sunset in front of Es Vedra.
Definitely make a reservation at least a few days ahead of time because during the peak summer months they are always fully booked.
Located just above the beach at Cala D´Hort, El Carmen is a fairly simple restaurant with wooden tables and chairs filling their terrace.
Once you are seated you will realize that this restaurant is not known for its decor or furniture, but for its incredibly epic views and amazing food.
Restaurante Sa Caleta, Sa Caleta
Many locals from the island visit Sa Caleta because it is one of the quietest areas of Ibiza.
Between its orange and reddish cliffs enclosing each side of the beach and clear blue waters.
It is considered one of the most tranquil beaches in Ibiza, if you prefer a small quaint cove.
Here you can enjoy some of the best paella in Ibiza at the only restaurant in the area.

Can Jaume, Cala Vadella
Can Jaume is located on the beach at Cala Vadella and offers a wide variety of Mediterranean cuisine.
Even though they have many other tasty items on their menu, we recommend that you try their Paella.
Their local chefs will amaze your senses with all of the different flavors of the Paella option which you choose.
Created in the 1960´s as a beach bar by local business owner Vicent D´en Jaume.
Years later he converted his small business into the delicious restaurant which we can all enjoy today.

Ses Boques, Es Cubells
Restaurante Ses Boques has been a hidden gem of the island since 1987 when it opened its doors.
Located on the southwest coast of Ibiza in the area of Es Cubells.
Its quite difficult to get to, especially if you do not have a 4 x 4 since the road down to the restaurant is quite steep.
Once you make it down to the restaurant you will enjoy some of the best Paella and seafood dishes that we have experienced at all of the best paella restaurants in Ibiza.
This restaurant visits local markets every day to ensure that they have the freshest local produce.
Every morning their fisherman catch many different types of fish and seafood.
The wooden terraces and the shade of the pines trees create a relaxed atmosphere for lunch or dinner.
Seafood paellas, fresh fish encrusted in local Ibicencan salt, and lobster stew are some of the most popular recipes that Ses Boques has prepared with passion for 42 years.
Check out the view of the restaurant below.
Can Pujol, Port des Torrent
Can Pujol is located just outside of San Antonio in the area of Port des Torrent.
It is another quality Mediterranean restaurant specializing Paella, fish, and seafood.

Can Pujols is probably best known for their mixed seafood platter.
In our opinion their best dishes are their lobster and fish paellas.
Restaurante Tropicana, Cala Jondal
Located in the far corner of Cala Jondal beach.
Tropicana Ibiza has incredible views of the sea and cliffs above the bay of Jondal.
This is a place where you can enjoy a wide variety of dishes for all tastes.
In our opinion their delicious Paella´s are the best option from their vast menu.
Tropicana provides local ingredients used for most of their dishes.
They offer options for larger events and celebrations if that is something your group will need.
Your afternoon in the sun will be accompanied by chilled cocktails and professional service.

Restaurante Pou des Lleo is ideal for eating a delicious paella on the east coast of Ibiza.
Here you can enjoy authentic Ibizan cuisine over a wood fire or from their grill, right on the Pou des Lleo beach.
Because of its remote location, Pou des Lleo is a perfect environment if you prefer a relaxed and quiet atmosphere.

*Juan y Andrea, Formentera*
Restaurante Juan y Andrea is not on the island of Ibiza, but it is so good we had to include it in our list!
Located just south of Ibiza, on the nothern shores of Formentera.
Juan y Andrea is one of the hardest restaurants to get a reservation at during the peak summer months.
As you dine with your feet in the sand, you can hear the sound of the waves splashing on the beach.
The majority of its clients arrive via boat or yacht, so the restaurant provides a dingy service.
Make sure to make your reservation at least a month or two in advance if you are planning on visiting during July-Sept.
