A reputation earned over decades, attracting many celebrities from the worlds of politics, sports, and entertainment
Superb fare, service, seaside setting
Ibiza is fortunate to boast a number of superb restaurants, but what makes El Faro (The Lighthouse) shine even brighter is its memorable, al-fresco setting by the sea. Known for decades for its sterling service and high-quality cuisine, this eatery has been patronised over the years by many of Spain's boldface names - politicians, sport figures, entertainment figures, and more. Its menu is filled with a wide range of gourmet offering such as lobster and seafood cocktails, scallop carpaccio, prawn salads, caviar, Ibiza-style rack of lamb, seafood stews, and superb rice dishes such as paella. It's not cheap, to be sure, but well worth a splurge for a romantic, top-quality meal.
