The history and location of Ibiza offer to its gastronomy too. The fishes and shellfishes are greatly consumed and are obtained every morning by the fishermen. Some local dishes you would find in most menus would include cod, hake, swordfish, sole, amberjack, sea bream, etc. You get the freshest fishes from the shacks, and they are comparatively cheaper to buy. You also get types of meat added to hearty stews. Try the local sausages named butifarra and sobrasada. Ibiza sells wines made in the most traditional way of grape extraction and is of high quality too.
Ibiza sells all the special Spanish dishes like gazpacho, paella, etc. Due to the vast tourist’s appeal, there are numerous international restaurants here. From the traditional tapas bars to Japanese Sushi or Moroccan delights, you get all that you’d want.
