Opening its doors early on in the summer of 2018, come the end of the season and the magical garden restaurant La Mezcaleria Mexiterranea has found its stride. Moving from its previous petite home in the historic Old Town of Ibiza to a sprawling oasis between Santa Eularia and San Carlos, the eatery and bar started with a well-stocked mezcal selection, an authentic taqueria and a raw kitchen before adding live music, a fashion boutique and food and drink pairing options into the mix. And now that we are heading into the colder and quieter months, La Mezcaleria Mexiterranea is ready to spice up our winter with a whole new menu.
With the weather gods treating us to a glorious Indian Summer, the atmospheric tree-shrouded terrace is the perfect place to toast the meal ahead with an expertly crafted cocktail or, indeed, a pure sip of mezcal. As the first Europe-based importers of the Mexican spirit, La Mezcaleria founders Javier and Hector are on hand to advise on which of the over 30 artisanal brands represented will go down best, either enjoyed on its own or with your chosen dishes.
As La Mezcaleria works as much as possible with fresh, local produce, the menu has recently changed over to a new seasonal offering. Home to a ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ kitchen, choose from mouth-watering tacos filled with juicy prawns or meat straight off the BBQ, or choose from the sophisticated and healthy ‘raw’ options, which include treats such as oysters drizzled in mezcal or delicate ceviche. There are also plenty of colourful salad and dip options such as beetroot and strawberry hummus or creamy guacamole available, so you won’t miss out on your greens!
The final component in a magical evening spent at La Mezcaleria is the live music. Over the course of the summer, an eclectic selection of bands has graced the garden stage to entertain diners with their vibrant sound and lure them onto the dancefloor. In October, The Milestones Band, Bahramji, Pin-Up Sound and Macumbia are all set to play still – so don’t miss out!
