As you wind down the dusty road between groves of coastal pines to Es Torrent, it feels as though you could just as easily be in the South of France as a small parking lot marks the spot of one of Ibiza's most famous seaside eateries. Having already been anointed by the King of Spain as well as numerous fashion icons, a dressy contingent of island elite descend on the beachside eatery with its teak outdoor terrace and collection of thatch umbrellas that host a late-afternoon tanning crowd. Its removed location along a rather popular beach also offers a good landing point for anchored yacht-hopper who arrive to the sandy beach in stilettos and couture sundresses.
Despite its casual location, the chefs of Es Torrent mean serious food business with an all-day menu that begins with tapas portions of grilled octopus, marinated tuna, melon ham and calamari cooked to order. Main course includes a few selections of lamb and chicken but mostly seafood specialties like a mixed fish grill, noodle paella with daily catch, black rice and lobster dishes that include stew and grilled options. A fairly lengthy wine list offers mostly Spanish selections as well as sangria and magnum of champagne and sparkling wines.
