For what is more recognized this restaurant by Ibiza’s people is for having the best lamb chops and tomato salad all over the year. It is a simple attraction, but its perfect elaboration has turned it to be a real success.

In Can Balafia the dishes are not too elaborated but of a superb quality. Their offer is based in grilled meat cooked in wood stoves having a great variety to choose from: leg, chops or shoulder of lamb, entrecote, ‘payés’ chicken, rabbit or pork chops. Our recommendation is to order their tasty tomatoes salad and French fries as accompaniment (you won’t regret it). They also have homemade desserts, standing out the flan, and those typical from Ibiza as the ‘flaó’ (cheesecake with spearmint) and the ‘greixonera’ (pudding made with ‘ensaimadas’).

This eatery is managed by Marí family for more than 30 years. It was founded, at that time, for a couple from the area and now is their children who are in charge. Antonio runs the stove and their sisters Lina, Marita and Toñi take over the place setting. The furniture is pretty basic and simple giving a rural aspect. They have a charming terrace with wooden tables and chairs under some trees that fills the place and provides intimacy when night falls. It is a peaceful place, with a family atmosphere where it’s easy to feel pleasant. Despite its simplicity, it’s usual to see celebrities having dinner during summer nights.

It’s worth stressing that, due to its grill success, it is a much sought restaurant and even more in summer, so it’s indispensable to make a reservation several days in advanced.
