Aubergine by Atzaró is one of the most romantic dining destinations in rural Ibiza. It is a must-visit for Ibiza food lovers and island devotees this year. On the Ibiza bucket list, the pretty country-chic restaurant, owned by Atzaró Group, is situated in the countryside, in a tranquil part of the island between Santa Gertrudis and San Miguel.
On the menu this season is a mouth-watering aubergine carpaccio to share as well as delicious dishes such as baked camembert cheese with homemade Atzaró orange marmalade, avocado ceviche with mango, papaya, palm hearts, cherry tomatoes, coriander, chilli with yucca chips and nachos. The kale salad with endives, red cabbage, celery, pear, pomegranate with lemon, dates and ginger dressing is also a winner every time.
2022 sees ‘Live Music Fridays’ and ‘Summer Sundays’ plus monthly local artist exhibitions to add to the relaxed atmosphere. Enjoy live jazz, acoustic guitar or traditional flamenco, as you dine amongst the gardens and pop over to the indoor art pavilion to see the latest local art or browse the collections in the Atzaró Boutique brimming with Ibiza fashion talent. The food concept is ‘farm-to-table’ with a rustic wholesome menu bursting with delicious dishes made from fresh seasonal local ingredients, much of which is grown in the organic vegetable garden on the Atzaró estate nearby. Freshly made juices, fruit waters, osmosis-collected water, local wines and cocktails compliment the sharing plate menu, with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. The grill menu has selections of some excellent locally sourced barbequed fish, meat and vegetarian dishes.
Aubergine by Atzaró is set in a restored ancient finca. The restaurant itself houses five cosy indoor dining rooms and three outdoor terraces twinkling with romantic lighting under pergolas dotted with a canopy of indigenous trees. Perfect for lunch in the fragrant gardens during the day, early evening sundowners or dinner under the stars at night, the restaurant encapsulates a sense of magical authentic Ibizan charm.
The extensive dining rooms, terraces and bars are decorated with rustic white plastered walls, sabina and olive beamed ceilings and painted with a simple and relaxing shade of olive green. Around the restaurant there are historical photographs of Ibiza as well as vintage pieces of pottery and artwork.
