In the city of Ibiza we can find numerous restaurants serving great sushi, from the most easy and simple to more luxury and glamor ways. Here we offer a brief guide to enjoy this Japanese delicacy.
The first suggestion is Sushiya Aoyama. Located in Plaza de sa Drassaneta, in the district of Sa Penya (in the harbour of Ibiza), it’s a small restaurant where you can find a very quiet spot within the usual bustle and liveliness of this area of the city. For getting there you have to follow a little street that takes off from the famous “calle de la Virgen” street. The establishment is run by Japanese chef Hideki Aoyama. A true master of sushi, and you can actually see how he prepares the sushi behind the bar. In fact, a good way to enjoy the cuisine of this place is sitting at the bar, watching how Hideki prepares the food. A true delight for the senses.
The menu offers a great variety of dishes, and the sushi changes daily depending on what’s fresh in the market. Green beans with peanut sauce, miso soup, wafu tortilla made with free range Ibizan eggs, green salad with seaweed, sesame oil and Ibizan cuttlefish sashimi, sweet Ibizan shrimp, tuna tataki and the essential toro (tuna belly), are just some of the dishes you can choose from its menu. Also, for dessert, you can’t miss their delicious ice cream.

Another interesting place for having sushi, though radically different from the previous one, is B.for Ibiza. It’s a Japanese cuisine with Mediterranean influence restaurant and lounge bar and where you can also enjoy the best dj’s on the island. In this case music, besides sushi, is essential in B.for and has become a perfect place to start the night for a fun and party night out. It’s not just about trying delicious Japanese specialties, but also a meeting point of gorgeous and modern people and where you can enjoy an exclusive and chic atmosphere. Furthermore, B.for helps the most deprived areas of Africa through its music. For every customer they donate a percentage to charity for Africa.

Another good option for enjoy Japanese dishes is Pacha Sushi Lounge, located in the famous and prestigious Pacha nightclub. The club’s restaurant, exquisitely decorated in white tones with exotic touches, offers a great summer terrace where Pacha Sushi Lounge is set. There you can enjoy Japanese dishes such as tuna sashimi, shrimp tempura and lobster. And all this in the most chic and glamorous atmosphere. Also, don’t worry about going a little late, since they serve sushi until 3 am. The best thing about this restaurant is that it combines a delicious meal with the option of spending a great time in one of the best night clubs on the island.
