With more positive news from the Spanish governments yesterday, we are feeling even more positive about the Ibiza Summer 2021 Season. We are now allowed to open “without interruption”. Meaning we can open a bit earlier in the evening, although the close time remains a firm 10:30pm.
But we are really pleased with this development, and happy that we can extend our evening dining slots to be able to accommodate more of you. Our new opening times will be in place for the next two weeks, until the next announcement.
How is the island right now?
Having been open at Tapas since the end of March. We have seen a steady increase in tourism over the last couple of weeks. Welcoming a lovely selection of international diners visiting from the mainland, Holland, Germany, France, Australia, Belgium, Switzerland… hold tight England, it will be your turn soon!
There is a definite buzz about the island at the moment, with the temperature hotting up, and more and more Opening Parties being announced every day. That coupled with a steady flow of European tourists arriving on the island, bringing with them a positive attitude to travel and tourism.
With the rules changing every two weeks, we think the most googled question in Ibiza at the moment must be “restaurants open in Ibiza now?” and we are proud to be one of them.
The media might have us on an emotional rollercoaster. But we are confident that businesses, customers and tourists all know the rules. And it is time for everyone to get on with enjoying life, just with a little extra dose of caution for now…
What’s on the menu at Tapas at the moment?
Having opened with a smaller team to start with… we have a slightly smaller Tapas menu available, but don’t worry, there is still plenty of choice. The Tapas Kitchen is certainly making are making up for it with some fantastic daily specials to get your taste buds going.
On Sundays we have also been really enjoying flying the “Sunday Roast” flag for our sister restaurant Relish Restaurant & Pool Bar. With Relish’s Head Chef joining us every Sunday to prepare his famous Sunday feast, here at Tapas, until Relish opens back up for the season.
We have also been really enjoying experimenting with a few new dishes, for our Relish’s ‘World Tapas’ Menu and a some new creations for our house cocktails menus. Lots of exciting things to come this Summer..
We just want to say a massive thank you to Ibiza’s wonderful local and international residents, who have shown us unwavering support. And to all the new faces that have joined us, it has been a pleasure getting to know you. We have thoroughly enjoyed meeting new tourists and hearing their experiences over the last year or so. And last, but by no means least, thanks to our wonderful, supportive, hard working team, we couldn’t do it without you.
Thanks to all of you, we are able to do what we love, and we couldn’t be happier…

If you are on the island, and fancy paying us a visit, we are recommending booking a table as we have limited availability some days!
We are super excited that we have made it to this point where we can finally announce our opening. At one point it seemed like a distant dream. But we have ridden it out here on our little island, and are thrilled that we are coming out the other side of these strange times.
As much as no one really knows what the Ibizan Summer Season holds this year, we are excited to embrace whatever changed are enforced upon us. Nothing like a new set of rules to mix things up a bit and keep us on our toes. Every few years there seems to be a shift of sorts, and people, and businesses have to adjust how they do things.. it’s evolution, and who knows life could be even better within our “new normal”, whichever way, we are excited to find out.
So this summer, things will be a bit different to start with, rest assured we will be adhering to the new government guidelines. But one thing we can guarantee, is the same top quality food, drinks and service.
Our wonderful Bar Manager has been getting us all tipsy testing some amazing new cocktails for our 2020 House Cocktails list. Additionally, we have an ALL NEW non alcoholic drinks menu including some homemade lemonades, iced teas and sangrias.
Our beautiful hidden gem of a garden, will be adorned with fairy lights as usual for evening drinks and snack, you can also enjoy our sharing boards and desserts in there.
As usual, we have tweaked our menu for the 2020 season, to offer some exciting new treats for you all. Over the next few weeks we will be introducing a few of our new dishes on our specials board, for a sneak preview of what is to come. We can’t wait for you to try some new tapas dishes, desserts, and the usual classic.
We can’t wait to get stuck into the new season and see what it offers, and we are really look forward to seeing you all soon.
