First things first! When you are in Ibiza it is useful to take into account the Spanish meal times. The rhythm in Spain is quite different than we are used to in the Netherlands. Where we attach great importance to breakfast (el desayuno), this is almost skipped by the Spaniards. At most they eat a tostada or a sweet sandwich with a café con leche. Around 11 am they eat a snack (el almuerzo). After this comes the meal that Spain is all about: lunch (la comida). In Spain they enjoy a very extensive lunch around 2 / 3 pm. This often consists of three courses. Because lunch is so extensive, the Spaniards often eat tapas for dinner (la cena). This often only takes place after 9.30 pm. Because they dine so late in Spain, the Spaniards often have a sweet snack (la merienda) between lunch and dinner. This usually happens around 6pm
In Ibiza it is gastronomic pleasure! There are great restaurants for a nice bite to eat. Nice to know is that Ibiza is at the forefront of organic and vegetarian cuisine. An awful lot of choice.
It's all about green food! Ibiza is also happily participating in this trend. Did green food used to have a goat wool socks image? Nowadays it is hip when you eat green. Green smoothies, goji berries, quinoa and so on. Are you planning to go to Ibiza and would you also like to eat green and healthy food there,look what nice spots we have found.

Meditterranean Local Produts
There are plenty of local products in Ibiza. Many products are made on the island itself. The most famous local products are the 'vinos', Hierbas Ibicencas, goat cheese, olive oil and almonds. The production of 'vino', better known to us as wine, has been in heavy weather for a long time. This was due to an outbreak of grape aphid. Nevertheless, the production of tasteful wines has never come to a standstill. Organic wine is also found in abundance. You can recognize these by the indication; Vi de la Terra.
When you are in Ibiza you will encounter this herbal liqueur. The smell and taste may remind you of the Greek drink Ouzo. This is because this spicy liqueur also has the typical taste of aniseed. Yet you will certainly taste the difference. Besides anise, there are other spices in it. These can include thyme, fennel or rosemary. The makers of this strong drink are tasked with combining the herbs in such a way that the flavors are next to each other and not that a single herb predominates. However, when you indulge in hierbas Ibicencas more often, you will taste the difference in aroma.
If you are in Ibiza you will undoubtedly encounter those beautiful olive trees. These are not only in the wild, there are also a number of olive farmers in Ibiza who make their olive oil in one of the two modern oil mills on the island. In these mills extra virgin olive oil is made of high quality. In order to guarantee the quality and uniqueness of these oils, they have created a guarantee label in collaboration with the local government, Oli d'e which stands for Oli de Eivissa. Traditionally produced olive oil from Ibiza. Because the environment plays a role and ingredients that only grow in Ibiza are often used in the oils, it naturally has its own taste.
