They know how to create a great atmosphere to go with great food at Mariner restaurant in Ibiza Town. We look at what it takes to make a perfect spot down by the port.
Authentic Mediterranean Seafood
The chef and his team have created a Mediterranean-based menu that specializes in seafood (although the meat dishes are also sublime), taking the traditional and giving it a modern twist. Think king crab and avocado, prawn carpaccio, or diced yellowtail with soft jalapeño cream; think incredible Galician cockles – then think about heading down to Mariner and snagging a table to enjoy this wonderful food.
Put simply, the terrace at Mariner is a joy: it manages to be intimate and feel secluded and private while being right in the heart of the town. Recently it has undergone a make-over and is now more charming than ever. With palm trees and plants strategically placed, every table feels like a little natural oasis of cosy calm.
In food, freshness, local, seasonal and above all quality are a critical part of the philosophy at Mariner. Service is, of course, exceptional. It is not unusual for the staff to direct you to the bar next door for a drink while they prepare you a table without reservation – and they’ll often come to find you when it’s ready!
With such fantastic service and incredible food, it is not hard to understand that the ambience at Mariner is warm, welcoming and friendly. There is a genuine feeling of everybody working towards making sure everybody has the best meal and the warmest time possible. Mariner is chic without pretention, cool without being cold and friendly without being overbearing.
Let’s face it: who doesn’t want to sit down with a fine meal and a glass of good wine and while away the time having a good look at the bold and the beautiful as they do… exactly the same thing? With a mixed, vibrant, chic clientele, Mariner is the ideal place for seeing the latest trends and styles as people step out of the city street and into the chill setting of the terrace.
You step out of the hustle and bustle and into a sea of tranquillity and calm. If you are looking for a restaurant with a primo port waterside location, Mariner is the spot for you. Around the port area itself you’ll find lanes with cobbled streets and pretty white-painted houses, and the area around the harbour comes alive at night with people walking along the harbour promenade – often admiring some of the stunning yachts moored there.
