Driving through its interior, the island it feels more Tuscany or Umbria than middle Ibiza. Through a grassy landscape of farmhouses and family villas you'll arrive to the hillside town of San Lorenzo where a quiet gravel street comes alive with vintage convertibles and stylish motorbikes. La Paloma is one of Ibiza's true culinary treasures, located within a family-owned ranch where its matriarch operates a coveted dining room and summer terrace of organic Italian specialties. The space is divided between a formal restaurant and new café serving daytime menu of café salads and fresh-squeezes juices. At 8pm the action shifts to the dining room as a fashionable dining scene unfolds while devouring a daily menu of homegrown specialties and seafood treasures.
Dinner is a culinary adventure of healthy, organic specialties derived from a kitchen operated by an Italian chef, via Tel Aviv, creating homemade gourmet experiences. A cute staff in boho sundresses passes around a chalkboard menu of scribbled appetizers and entrees translated in a causal Spanish accent. Dinner best begins with a charcuterie appetizer with artesian cheeses and meats accented with homegrown herbs from the on-site garden. Eggplant Parmesan and colorful field salads sate light and more hearty eaters. Main course is a mix of country style lasagna, spelt pasta with herbs, and salmon baked in a paper. Dessert is a menagerie of fruit tarts, light cakes and daily baked specialties.
