Experience the Magic of Etxeko Ibiza: A Visual Feast with Culinary Brilliance

Having earned its inaugural Michelin star in November 2022, Etxeko Ibiza at BLESS Hotel Ibiza recently announced the return of renowned chef Martin Berasategui.

In collaboration with champagne maison Comte de Montaigne, they proudly present an exclusive dinner, showcasing their new menu. The culinary offering for this season seamlessly merges the traditional flavours of Cantabria with the finest ingredients from Ibiza, paying homage to Berasategui’s roots and the essence of Basque gastronomy.

This exquisite tasting menu takes diners on a gastronomic journey that captures the essence of both destinations, featuring delectable dishes such as Ibiza sea bass and Basque chilli served with sirvia, providing an authentic taste of the White Island.

Honouring Culinary Excellence

Martín Berasategui expresses his happiness and motivation, attributing the prestigious award to the unwavering enthusiasm displayed by the entire team since the opening of Etxeko Ibiza five years ago. He states, “The award is the result of working hard with the same enthusiasm as on the very first day. We want visitors to continue to be thrilled by our cuisine.”

Chef Paco Budia, Berasategui’s trusted right-hand man on the island, reflects on his fortune of working with the culinary genius, appreciating not only his expertise in the kitchen but also his humility and humanity. Receiving the first Michelin star serves as an honour and encouragement for the team to persist on this path of excellence, resulting in an invigorating new menu for the upcoming season, collaboratively designed with Martín and his team.
