It is with great pride (and happy tears in our eyes), that we can announce that we have won the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Award 2021, for the second year running!
For anyone that hasn’t heard of it, the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award celebrates restaurants that consistently deliver a fantastic experience to travellers around the world. The hospitality industry has been hit really hard by the pandemic, and more so those that are located in seasonal tourist destinations. In these particularly challenging times, we are extremely proud that we have managed to stand out again, by providing great service and a memorable experience to our lovely guests. We did only manage 3 months of trade in 2020, but we made those 3 months count as best we could.
This award puts us in the top 10% of restaurants worldwide, for delivering a consistently great experience to our customers. Now that really is something to be proud of!
With all this in mind, we really want to thank our fantastic team for working so hard in these really challenging times. Sweating through their masks, adhering to the ever changing and sometimes illogical rules and restrictions. And generally doing what they can to help us keep the business going in these hard times.
Special thanks to our wonderful Kitchen team, lead by our fantastic Head Chef Alex, for consistently preparing amazing innovative dishes that our customers are really wowed by. Thanks to the wonderful Bar team, lead by our creative Bar Manager Ben, for inventing some amazing moreish house cocktails, and much more. Thanks to the ever smiling front of house team, for making sure everyone receives a warm welcome and a truly memorable experience.
And to everyone that has done their bit to make Tapas Restaurant & Garden Bar what it is today…
And mostly, thanks to you, our loyal customers, for your consistent support. Whether you have shared a review of your experience on tripadvisor, or on our google business page. Dined with us, told your friends about us, made an instastory and tagged us in it, shared a post, liked one of our social media posts, or even are just reading this blog, it all counts. And we are very grateful.
We are off to crack open a bottle of something fizzy now, and we look forward to welcoming more of you to Tapas over the next few weeks of the season, and for many more years to come.
At Tapas we pride ourselves on serving good food, that is made with fresh local ingredients as much as possible. Our theory is, the fresher, and better quality the ingredients, the better the final dish will taste, and the happier our loyal customers will be!
Also high on our list of priorities when introducing items to the menu, is to make sure we offer a wide selection of dishes to cater for our clients dietary requirements. Whether you are Vegan, Vegetarian, have a dairy or gluten intolerance, or none of the above, there is something on our menu for you!
With all the latest research and the sheer amount of information available to us now, people are becoming more informed about where their food comes from. And are more informed about the effects of consumption of various food has on your wellbeing, and our planet!
We want you to have the information too, so we take care to list it on our menu, although sadly we still won’t be giving away our safely guarded recipes, just yet anyway!
Some of our fantastic vegan dishes that you can enjoy from our enticing menu.
- Our Rode Pesto Groenen, are extremely popular new addition to the menu, these tasty veggies (broccoli, asparagus and green beans) really have the wow factor.
- We have a new Knoflookchampignons option for you! Although these aren’t listed on the menu as vegan, we have been working away behind the scenes to prepare them so they can be prepared slightly differently, making them super tasty, and vegan! (be sure ask your waiter for this option)
- Having done some research, we still aren’t 100% sure which which came first, the spicy tomato sauce & aioli bravas topping, or the slightly sweeter Paprika sauce option. We introduced the Paprika Aardappelen onto the menu as a tasty alternative. Although we have always been able to make the traditional Patatas Bravas with the vegan alioli, and still can.
- Super Groene Quinoa Salade, what’s not to love, as much as a vegan salad is relatively easy to put together, we have combined some fresh Summer flavours here to hold together this super tasty and refreshing Summer salad.
- Our Black Bean & Saukraut Salad. With fermented foods proven to be great for your gut health, this flavour combination salad is fresh tasty and great for your tummy.
- What’s not to love about a Hummus Board, served with homemade cumin tortilla chips.
- If you, like many other LOVE aioli, you can still enjoy a “pan y aioli’ with our delicious Vegan Basil Alioli
- A couple of firm favourites on our menu, the colourful and super tasty Broccoli & Chickpea Coconut Curry and the fruity Gemengde bonen-tajine
- And finally, if you want the real wow factor you have to try out our amazing Chocolate & Orange Tort, served with a delicious chocolate sauce. Unless you notice the “v” next to this dish, you wouldn’t know that this creamy dessert is vegan.
Vegan or Not, we are always keen to hear your feedback, and we hope you enjoy you experience at Tapas
Ione & Sam were in the later stages of arranging the last little details prior to their dream Ibiza Wedding, when they were served a curve ball neither of them could have anticipated. Their wedding venue had been forced to close!!!
Luckily they had already booked Ibiza Celebrant, Carly Marie, who was quick to the rescue!! Carly quickly got in touch with us at Tapas, and a couple of other venues to see if it would be something we could help with. Sam & Ione then quickly flew out to have a look at the venues, and chose Tapas.
On meeting Ione & Sam there was no doubt we wanted to do everything we could to help them. They were possible the most chilled couple we have ever worked with, they were happy with anything we could do to save their big day.
The couple had chosen Ibiza for their wedding because it was where they had had their first holiday as a couple, and have since returned many times to the beautiful island. It had been a well established dream for them to get married in Ibiza, and celebrate their love in front of a select handful of close family and friends, before starting the rest of their lives together.
Ione & Sam had a limited budget for their wedding. They had been living with Sam’s parents to save money for their wedding, and to buy their dream marital home together. Fortunately the Tapas Garden doesn’t need much to transform it into a beautiful romantic wedding backdrop. With a bit of vision and creativity from the Tapas Events Team, they managed to transform the garden by adding a few romantic touches.
In all honestly, the main objective for this beautiful couple was to get married, and celebrate their love, nothing else mattered…
As well as being a celebrant, Carly is also a singer… after the ceremony Carly sang accompanied by Patrick Levy on guitar. Another truly touching moment on the day was when Sam’s little sister picked up the microphone and surprised the newly weds with a beautiful song, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
Finally, we would like wish Sam & Ione a very Happy Anniversary, and to thank them for allowing us to share their story.
We would also like to thank to Carly for all her help assisting with the last minute wedding plans, and putting Sam & Ione in touch with us.
And finally, to Anne for kindly sharing her beautiful photographs with us.

We zijn super enthousiast dat we zover zijn gekomen dat we eindelijk onze opening kunnen aankondigen. Op een gegeven moment leek het een verre droom. Maar we hebben het hier op ons kleine eiland bereden en zijn opgetogen dat we aan de andere kant van deze vreemde tijden komen.
Zoveel als niemand echt weet wat het Ibizan-zomerseizoen dit jaar inhoudt, zijn we verheugd om te omarmen wat er ook verandert dat ons wordt opgelegd. Er gaat niets boven een nieuwe set regels om dingen een beetje door elkaar te halen en ons scherp te houden. Om de paar jaar lijkt er een soort verschuiving te zijn, en mensen en bedrijven moeten aanpassen hoe ze dingen doen .. het is evolutie, en wie weet kan het leven nog beter zijn binnen ons 'nieuwe normaal', hoe dan ook, we zijn opgewonden Er achter komen.
Dus deze zomer zullen de dingen om te beginnen een beetje anders zijn, wees gerust, we zullen ons houden aan de nieuwe overheidsrichtlijnen. Maar één ding dat we kunnen garanderen, is hetzelfde eten, drinken en service van topkwaliteit.
Onze geweldige barmanager heeft ons allemaal aangeschoten laten testen van een aantal geweldige nieuwe cocktails voor onze lijst met huiscocktails voor 2020. Daarnaast hebben we een GEHEEL NIEUW menu met niet-alcoholische dranken, inclusief enkele zelfgemaakte limonades, ijsthee en sangrias.
Onze prachtige verborgen parel van een tuin, zal zoals gewoonlijk worden versierd met kerstverlichting voor drankjes en snacks in de avond, u kunt daar ook genieten van onze gedeelde borden en desserts.
Zoals gewoonlijk hebben we ons menu aangepast voor het seizoen 2020, om jullie allemaal een aantal opwindende nieuwe traktaties te bieden. De komende weken zullen we een aantal van onze nieuwe gerechten introduceren op ons specials-bord, voor een voorproefje van wat komen gaat. We kunnen niet wachten tot je wat nieuwe tapasgerechten, desserts en de gebruikelijke klassieker uitprobeert.
We kunnen niet wachten om het nieuwe seizoen in te gaan en te zien wat het te bieden heeft, en we kijken er echt naar uit jullie allemaal binnenkort te zien.
Bex, Tony, Glyn en Team Tapas
