Love Letter to the Sea

The Mediterranean, with its abundance of fresh fish, plays an important role in Ibizan cuisine.

In contemporary Ibizan cuisine, aioli occupies a prominent place. It is served everywhere from the beach bars of Ibiza to upscale hotels such as Ghitonia Hotel & SPA and Encanto Del Rio Hotel Spain, where hospitality and culinary sophistication go hand in hand. Here, aioli is used to add a unique twist to both traditional and innovative dishes.

Each spoonful of aioli tells a story about Ibiza’s rich history and vibrant mix of cultures. As such, Ibizan aioli is a true culinary treasure that you should definitely taste on your next visit to this beautiful island.
