    Let me introduce myself first: I am Gertjan Holleman and I do the social media for House Rent Ibiza and therefore write reviews of restaurants and beach clubs. During my first vacation in 1983, I instantly fell in love with beautiful Ibiza with its relaxed atmosphere. Thirty years later, I sold my modeling agency MAX Models in Rotterdam and emigrated to Ibiza with my husband Johan. I am also happy to help you find the perfect vacation home in Ibiza.

    MAISON LE VRAI

    maison le vrai

    Pastis had been my favorite restaurant for French food for years. But with the arrival of Maison Le Vrai in 2017, Pastis does have one more competitor. This chic bistro with high walls and mirrored ceilings serves finger-licking French cuisine.

    THE BOAT HOUSE

    the boat house

    Most Ibiza visitors don’t get beyond San Joan on their way north, but Cala San Vicente is definitely worth a visit. Overlooking the deep blue bay, The Boat House Restaurant has been located there since 2017.

    In 2016, owner Jay decided to hang up his photographic modeling career and sailed over to Barcelona with his Brazilian girlfriend. By pickup truck, they traveled across the Spanish mainland. They ate at various restaurants, talked to fishermen and came up with their menu of Fusion dishes with influences from Morocco, Iran and, of course, Spain, among others.

    The menu has something for everyone. Vegetarian, vegan, fish and meat and even hamburger with fries. The fish on the menu arrives fresh every day by boats on the beach. If you are less hungry, you are also welcome to lie down in one of the hammocks with a delicious cocktail or smoothie.

    On April 25, 2018, Aiyanna opened the summer with a spectacular show and live music. The interior is what you expect in Ibiza at a beach club, but unique are the huge umbrellas. These tall parasols were declared cultural heritage in Guatamala in 1999.
