Ibiza Gran Hotel
Every morning at the Ibiza Gran Hotel, the Costa Mara Restaurant serves one of the most amazing breakfasts on the island, accompanied by live Spanish guitar music and champagne. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Well, read on: the buffet comprises different serving stations, such as the diet zone, the freshly cut fruit counter, the fresh fruit juice counter, the chocolate fondue with pancakes, another counter serving eggs cooked to guests’ requirements, along with cold meats and other delicatessen items, including fresh oysters, home-made yoghurts and freshly made confectionery. The breakfast at the Ibiza Gran Hotel is more like a full brunch!
Ushuaïa Beach Hotel
To start the day, Ushuaïa Beach Hotel offers “The unexpected breakfast”, a breakfast to be savoured at leisure, and one of the most pleasurable moments of the day. Freshly squeezed exotic fruit juices, platters of cheeses from different designations of origin, locally sourced cold meats, showcooking with eggs cooked to order, a counter serving Italian food, and other novelties, ranging from popcorn to all kinds of sweets. And what is truly impressive about this breakfast is its presentation: the food is displayed on fun carousels. Not to mention the stunning sea views, and who doesn’t like to have breakfast feeling the sand beneath their feet? In addition, Ushuaďa Beach Hotel has surprises in store for breakfast guests with shows and musical performances. That really is an unexpected way to start the day!
The dazzling Ibiza Bay Nobu Hotel, located on the beach front at Talamanca, offers both guests and outside visitors a completely free choice of where to have breakfast: either in the restaurant or on the beach where they can feel the sand between their toes. Breakfast includes a “tortilla bar”, where tortillas [Spanish omelettes] are made in every version imaginable. A wide range of freshly baked breads, cakes, pastas, salads, cold meats, fresh fruit juices, champagne, teas, coffees, and countless hot dishes make up this breakfast of your dreams, where everyone will find something to their taste.

How good it feels to start the day with a yoga session overlooking the sea, followed by a healthy breakfast. This is what’s on offer at Aiyanna Ibiza (Cala Nova), a beach bar which retains the Bohemian spirit of the Ibiza of yesteryear, but with an added touch of chic. After the yoga class, you can recharge your batteries with a tempting, healthy buffet which includes freshly squeezed juices and, to eat, fresh fruit, eggs, natural yoghurt, cereals, nuts and freshly baked wholemeal breads. Of course, you can simply enjoy the breakfast if the yoga doesn’t appeal to you, but if you don’t want to miss the yoga class, don’t forget to book it in advance.
Located in the marina of Ibiza town, this restaurant serves one of the island’s most famous breakfasts, and affords amazing views of the port and the Dalt Vila walled quarter. Sa Calma’s breakfast offer is as simple as it is delicious, and our favourites, without the shadow of a doubt, are the fruit juices and toasties, including cheese or avocado.
Croissant Show Ibiza

Opposite the harbour in San Antonio, we find this picturesque eatery which is always packed with residents and tourists alike, making for a thoroughly cosmopolitan atmosphere.
