IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar, part of the world-renowned Entourage Group, is set to welcome guests for another fabulous season from May 10th onwards, spoiling diners with its intoxicating mix of Japanese cuisine with South American influences. What can easily be described as one of the most luxurious restaurants on Ibiza, it holds a prime location within the walls of the Sir Joan Hotel, located in the sought-after area of Marina Botafoch at the beginning of the famous ‘golden mile’.
A dinning experience at IZAKAYA can be compared to no other. Upon entering the restaurant, you are transported into modern design fused with sheer indulgence. Covering a whole wall, a huge steel fridge holds a vast selection of fine wines alongside Japanese sake, Shōchū and whiskeys. The 360-degrees bar makes for another eye-catching feature within the hip space, offering further seats to diners when the outdoor seating space is filled. Meanwhile, IZAKAYA’s performance kitchen is used as a culinary theatre, which is able to accommodate up to 15 guests on gleaming bar stools to experience an animated culinary show executed by the restaurant’s expert team of chefs, and starring the spectacular food.
Seamlessly integrated into the stylish design and communal spaces of Sir Joan, the outdoor dining area is perfect for the White Isle’s sweltering summer nights, boasting tables and comfortable booths within touching distance of the statement pool at its heart. To make the most of all the menu has to offer, guests are encouraged to try at least one dish that they have never tried before. A dinner menu of ‘Asian tapas’ on small plates are perfect for sharing. Be sure to sample the spicy Peruvian tuna on chips or the authentic Padron Peppers. For those with a luxury palette, the Oyster Filo with creamy Wasabi & Beluga Caviar is a real treat. Meanwhile, meat lovers will swoon over the Wagyu and Foie Gras Gyozas or a sumptuous Rib Eye steak from the Robata grill.
Whether you drop in for pre-party cocktails or a full-on three-course meal, with its convenient location, stylish surroundings and impeccable service, IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar is the perfect destination to start your night or celebrate a special occasion.
