Tips for booking a restaurant in Ibiza downtown

Making lunch or dinner reservations in Ibiza during the high season months can be an odyssey. So, before venturing and physically go to the restaurant and see that there is no room, from Welcome Ibiza we recommend you:

  • Book in advance, at least one-two weeks before you plan to go.
  • The reservation applications that some restaurants have are essential. There you will be able to see at all times when there is or is not room.
  • Do you mind eating at a time that is not your usual time? For example at 13:00? Off-peak times are the least crowded and the luckiest times to find a place to eat.
  • Some restaurants may have strict cancellation policies, so make sure you are aware of them to avoid unnecessary charges.
