Following the fantastic news yesterday that the UK is joining the rest of Europe in putting Ibiza on the Green List. It’s time to get planning.
There are so many decisions to make when planning a holiday. And one of the big ones is where to stay! With this in mind we have put together a shortlist of reasons why we think the Bay of San Antonio is a great place to stay… It is the perfect place to base yourselves. Close to so many of the wonderful hotels, restaurants, bars, pools, the sunset and some of the island’s best beaches Ibiza has to offer.

1. The Amare Hotel

For a first class experience, the Amare Hotel in San Antonio Bay is the place to stay. Stylish rooms, fantastic facilities and beautifully situated. With views of San Antonio & the magical Ibiza Sunset. This adults only hotel offers a first class experience. 
And being just a stones throw from Relish, you can enjoy a meal and indulge in some house cocktails without having to drive home.
You can also enjoy the amazing Ibiza Sunset from their rooftop bar Belle Vue.

2. The Beach Star

This fun and super instagramable boutique hotel is really popular with both tourists and locals. Known for its fun afternoons around the pool, The Beach Star should be on your Ibiza Bucket List.
The kitchens start serving breakfast from 9am. The pool then opens at 10am, with resident DJ’s Antton and Doctor Feelgood taking to the decks from 1pm through to 6pm.
And the bonus is, even if you aren’t staying at the hotel; you can enjoy an afternoon of drinks and good music. It is recommended to book a poolside bed, but not essential. info@thebeachstaribiza.com

3. Idyllic West Coast Beaches

The West Coast boasts some of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

Cala Bassa
This fashionable, sheltered beach is lined with Sabina trees. It has beautiful clear water, perfect for swimming for all ages. It is accessible by car, bus and water taxi (from San Antonio).

Cala Conta
Just around the corner from Cala Bassa you will find the slightly more earthy beaches of Cala Comte. There are several small beaches here to explore, all with breathtaking turquoise water. You have to see it to believe it. There are several restaurants to choose from too. If you come late in the afternoon it is an amazing spot to enjoy the famous Ibiza Sunset. It is recommended to get here early in high season as it can be extremely busy. It is accessible via car, bus or water taxi (from San Antonio).

Cala Tarida
One of the island’s smaller resorts, Cala Tarida is well worth a visit. It is the longest sandy beach on the west coast of the island, and is lined with hotels and a selection of great restaurants. Again the water here is magnificently blue, and the conditions are perfect for swimming. With a rocky formation reaching out into the sea in the middle of the beach, it is also a great spot for snorkelling. It is accessible via car, bus or water taxi from San Antonio.

4. Float Your Boat – Beach Hop

Following nicely on from our Beach Guide. You can also enjoy a day at sea being guided around some of the island’s most amazing beaches by the Float Your Boat team. Their excursions take you on a trip around the stunning West Coast of the island taking in some of the finest water and beaches on the island. The boat is fully equipped with toys such as body boards, snorkels and paddle boards. With fresh fruit and drinks included, this relaxing day is the perfect no stress way to take in some of the island’s most breathtaking scenery. And you might even see some dolphins.
For availability and more information, check out their website.

7. Paella at Can Pujol

Can Pujol first opened back in 1980. Serving traditional fresh seafood, for a taste of authentic mediterranean cuisine, you have to dine here. It is characterised by its simplicity and uninterrupted sea and sunset views. Their specialties include their delicious bullit de peix, seafood grills and lobster stews. The beauty of Can Pujol is that the fish is always fresh from the market, and never frozen. You really can taste the difference.

8. Sunset at Kumharas

Kumharas is a well loved island institution. No island bucket list is complete without “Taking in the Ibiza Sunset”. With its authentic and laid back feel to it you will get lost in the moment. Continuing their laid back vibe, they don’t take reservations. So make sure that you arrive early (we recommend before 8pm) to bag yourself a great spot to enjoy some great drinks and snacks while you take in the sunset.
They also have a tasty and informal Street Food Style Market. As well as an Asian corner with a selection of curries, and various dishes from India, Thailand & Sri Lanka. Keep your eyes peeled for their Asian BBQ which will be coming soon.

Viva el Verano, Opening 2021

We are really excited to announce our opening for Summer 2021. With the ever easing restrictions here on the island, momentum is building. We are thrilled that we are now in a position where we can finally open the restaurant for the Summer 2021 season.

After a rather disappointingly short season last year. We can’t wait to get back to doing what we love. We have invested a lot of time during the winter months into the Relish’s concept and image. Our kitchen team have been hard at work too, creating fantastic new dishes for you to enjoy this Summer.

Although there is still a lot of uncertainty floating about in the world at the moment, we are remaining optimistic. After all we are a “glass half full” kinda team. One thing that these strange times have taught us all, is how to be adaptable and to roll with the punches. 

What we know right now is that Ibiza is opening up. The amazing Amáre Hotel, just down the road from us, is open and filling up. And tourism in Europe is certainly increasing. Which means holidays to Ibiza are back on the cards. We might not be back to our pre Covid ways just yet. But we are happy to keep taking these small steps until we get there.

This menu has evolved over the last few years to include some really interesting flavour combinations. As ever with lots of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options. 

  • Relish Burger Menu

As well as the popular “Relish Burger”, Cajun Chicken Burger and the Veggie & Vegan Burgers. We have a couple of new burgers for you to enjoy including the White Isle Burger and our Spicy Burger.

  • Sunday Roasts 

A big thanks to our Big Sister Tapas Restaurant & Garden Bar for flying the “Relish Sunday Roast” flag for us, in our absence. For a taste of comfort and indulgence we have our Roast Chicken, Roast Belly of Pork, Roast Beef, Lamb Shank and Vegetarian Mushroom Wellington (which can also be made into a Vegan Roast, if desired) available every Sunday throughout the Summer.

Sadly we don’t have a crystal ball to know how things will pan out this Summer in Ibiza. But, whatever happens we will make the most of it. And we hope to see lots of you around the pool, and enjoying free time with family and friends again. Heres to Summer 2021 in Ibiza.

We can’t wait to see you all

La variedad es la sal de la vida

Creo que estarás de acuerdo en que Ibiza es uno de esos raros lugares especiales a los que la gente vuelve una y otra vez. La isla ofrece tantas cosas diferentes a tantas personas diferentes, todas coexistiendo a la perfección.

La gente a menudo me comenta que no saben qué es lo que los atrae a la isla con tanta frecuencia. Creo que tiene algo que ver con el hecho de que nuestra pequeña isla tiene mucho que ofrecer. Con tanta versatilidad, Ibiza parece atraer a un grupo de personas muy cálido y receptivo, de todos los ámbitos de la vida. 

Ibiza parece tener “algo especial” que nadie puede señalar. He pensado mucho en esta pregunta a lo largo de los años, y creo que es la aceptación y la versatilidad de la isla, uno de sus encantos más especiales. Una refrescante falta de juicio.

"Todo el mundo tiene ese sueño de Ibiza, o has estado o quieres ir, porque tiene esta cualidad mística".

Daniel Mays, actor

Algunas personas se sienten atraídas por el hedonismo y su hippie interior. El ritmo 24/7, los clubes, las fiestas y el estilo de vida libre y abierto. Otros no quieren nada más que largos días de playa, días de relax bajo el sol del Mediterráneo, seguidos de largas y relajantes noches de verano. 

Las divertidas vacaciones familiares también son un gran atractivo. Con muchos parques acuáticos, hoteles para familias y muchas playas impresionantes de Ibiza para niños. Mientras que otros quieren perderse, o encontrarse, en uno de los muchos retiros de salud y bienestar que operan durante el verano. 

Algunos se sienten atraídos por los amantes de la moda y el estilo de vida VIP, mientras que otros anhelan la vida sencilla.

Con Ibiza teniendo un atractivo internacional, la isla atrae a personas de todo el mundo. Trayendo consigo una maravillosa variedad de cocinas y culturas, creando un atractivo culinario excepcional para los amantes de la comida de todo el mundo. 

"La variedad es la sal de la vida, eso le da todo su sabor".

William Cowper, poeta

¡En Relish, realmente creemos que la variedad realmente es la sal de la vida! 

Con esto en mente, y nuestra clientela internacional, hemos desarrollado un menú que ofrece algo para todos. Todo cuidadosamente pensado y preparado con cariño por nuestro maravilloso equipo.

Nuestro Menú de Tapas del Mundo ofrece una selección de platos de tapas, de todo el mundo. Personalmente, nada me encanta más que pedir una selección de platos para la mesa y compartirlos con amigos. 

Para esos días de hambre, no hay nada más reconfortante que un plato principal abundante o morder una hamburguesa casera. Esta sección del menú ha sido especialmente diseñada para incluir algunos platos familiares, así como algunos sabores más aventureros.

Al igual que con todos los menús, hay algo para todos, y siempre nos aseguramos de que haya opciones veganas, vegetarianas, sin lácteos y sin gluten. 

“No se puede pensar bien, amar bien, dormir bien, si no se ha cenado bien”.

Virginia Woolf, escritora

Nuestros asados de los domingos son realmente especiales, ¡incluso si lo decimos nosotros mismos! Un abrazo culinario masivo en un plato. Cualquiera que sea su preferencia, tenemos una cena asada para usted. La cocina de los domingos ofrece rabadilla de ternera asada, panceta de cerdo asada a fuego lento, pechuga de pollo asado, pierna de cordero estofada o un Wellington vegetariano de hongos (que puede ser vegano a pedido). No podemos garantizarle que no necesite dormir después ... pero valdrá la pena. 

Con tanto para elegir, ¿cuál será su elección?

Reserve su mesa para comenzar su viaje culinario ...

¿Ella no lo hará? Ha sido como una telenovela latina tratando de anticipar cómo se desarrollarán las cosas en Ibiza y España, y bien en Europa… y en el mundo. 

Pero finalmente ahora que las cosas parecen estabilizarse un poco, y tenemos imágenes un poco más claras de cómo podrían ser las cosas. Estamos encantados de anunciar que abriremos nuestras puertas para el verano de 2020 el viernes 16 de julio de 2020. 

A pesar de que no es el comienzo de la temporada que esperábamos, estamos muy emocionados de volver a ella. Como siempre, tenemos algunos platos nuevos para que disfrutes. También hemos desarrollado una nueva carta de cócteles de la casa, exclusivamente para Relish. Así como una nueva carta de bebidas no alcohólicas, repleta de interesantes y refrescantes bebidas para mantenerte hidratado.

Inicialmente, nuestro horario de apertura será de 13:00 a 23:00 (Martes cerrado)

Independientemente de lo que traiga el verano de 2020, lo único que podemos garantizar es que nos esforzaremos por garantizar que reciba la misma cálida bienvenida y el mismo alto nivel de alimentos y bebidas de los que estamos orgullosos. 

Ya sea que elija disfrutar de nuestro nuevo menú de cócteles de la casa, cene nuestros nuevos y deliciosos platos de nuestro menú mundial de tapas o disfrute de un asado los domingos ... estamos encantados de darle la bienvenida. 

Y por último, queremos agradecerles a todos por su apoyo continuo y continuo, significa mucho para nosotros, y esperamos verlos pronto en Relish, levantando una copa por las cosas simples de la vida.

Nos vemos pronto, 

Tony, Glyn, Bex y el resto del equipo Relish.
