If you have ever visited the White Isle in the months of September and October, you know that this is one of the most beautiful times to enjoy Ibiza. Thanks to the climate phenomenon locally dubbed ‘veroño’ – a mix of the Spanish words for summer and autumn – the island enjoys a second wave of glorious sunshine, blue skies and flourishing flowers, while the temperatures cool down slightly to be ‘balmy’ rather than ‘scorching’. And with the nights beginning to bear a slight chill, there is no better time to enjoy a sun-dappled countryside lunch or cosy dinner at the rustic Cas Costas Grill & Market.
A lovingly converted traditional Ibicencan building, the restaurant offers a spacious, plant-shrouded terrace overlooking its own ecological gardens where organic produce is picked daily to appear freshly on your plate. Soak up the last of the autumnal sunshine over a hearty lunch as the chef sizzles the finest meat cuts to perfection in the open kitchen. And for those occasional rainy days – or should you prefer to stop by for dinner – a cosy inside dining space full of rustic charm awaits!
Cas Costas prides itself on working with local and national produce prepared in an authentic Mediterranean manner, and the menu bursts with tasty meats expertly prepared on the Josper grill. However, vegetarians will also find several mouth-watering dishes to their liking. Start with a traditional Gazpacho soup, grilled goats cheese salad, chicken croquettes or grilled prawns, before moving on to delicacies such as ‘Manchego’ lamb chops, farmer’s style chicken, salt-cooked sea bass or a juicy steak.
With the kitchen open from 13.00 until midnight, drop in any time you like and enjoy a relaxed meal with your nearest and dearest. Sip on full-bodied wines and taste the best Spanish cuisine has to offer while soaking up the atmospheric surroundings of this countryside gem. Adjacent to the restaurant, a mini market filled with fresh fruit, vegetables and gourmet products from the island invites you to stock up your own shelves to take the real taste of Ibiza home with you!
