2018 has been a year of rarities in Ibiza to say the least. England made World Cup believers of us all, David Guetta played back-to-back with Solardo and I became very fond of hierbas…
What wasn’t a rarity this summer however was everyone’s love for STK Ibiza. In an age where the majority of the globe is sucked into the social media realm through their smart phones and computers, it would’ve been pretty difficult to have not seen a smiling face at a table at Ibiza’s most mouth-watering hub for food.
From pictures of salivating dishes and luscious cocktails to videos of outstanding entertainment and breathtaking views of Eivissa, a check-in status at this glorious steakhouse came filled full of promise, and boy did it deliver.
Residing in the more upmarket location of Marina Botafoch, this glamorous establishment is as glorious in from the inside gazing out as it is from the outside staring in. Arguably one of the most beautiful and swanky districts on the island, the presence of all the luxurious super-yachts along the water front speaks volumes about the area’s level of exclusivity. The new addition of the Sunset Terrace makes the uninterrupted views of Dalt Vila and Ibiza Old Town even more of a joy to look at.
Sleek and spectacular, the vibe inside STK Ibiza is always a special one. Unique and extravagant in terms of dress code and clientele, such a fine-dining experience needs fine music to reflect the mood of the night. STK Ibiza achieves this effortlessly, no questions asked. As we were walked to our table, the ambience for the evening was set perfectly with a fusion of sexy, Balearic island vibes. As the night progressed, the music policy evolved with New York influenced beats and a blend of funk, soul, old school and more.
Cocktails are an essential contributor to any night out formulae and at STK Ibiza, their extensive range ensured ours was one to remember. Starting the evening off with a selection of their special signature offerings, we indulged ourselves in a taste of an exotic Caribbean Passion before embracing the sheer delight that accompanied the Sweet Dream. However, if you’re after something with more of a kick to it, we highly recommend getting yourself some STK Luxury – a divine blend of Belvedere, Saint Germain, lemon and Peychaud’s Bitters will certainly get you on your merry way.
In terms of table service, you couldn’t really fault them in any department. From the moment we arrived right up until we caught our cab home, the STK Ibiza staff were full of smiles, manners and a wealth of happiness. Prompt and efficient, the high-quality service provided made our visit here just as memorable as the food and beverages thus truly defining the term ‘fine-dining experience’.
When it comes to delivering a three-course menu defined by distinctive taste and authentic finesse, not many establishments quite compare to the standard set by STK Ibiza. Starting the night off with a host of drivelling goodies, we commenced with a selection of delicious soft shell crab sliders which was complimented wonderfully by the watermelon salad which featured compressed miner cucumber, creamed feta and olive crumb. Divulging into the mains, we were presented with a small yet succulent serving of USD prime rump steak which came accompanied by tantalising Norwegian salmon soaked in champagne sauce and Avruga caviar. To complete our appetite fulfilment, we tucked into the reinvigorating New York cheesecake which was comprised of refreshing strawberry sorbet, pistachio crumb and strawberry gel. From the starters to the mains right through to the desserts, STK Ibiza excelled on all accounts.
Having dinner with friends is always fun when you want to catch up, however it is 10 times better when a Michael Jackson tribute act is moonwalking past your table to ‘Billie Jean’. Dishing out high-fives to anyone who came into his vision, our fine-dining experience became so much more than just ‘fine-dining’. Bringing about a diverse schedule when it comes to entertainment values, STK Ibiza also offer nights such as Old’s Cool, Backstage with Wally Lopez and YOU Ibiza.
When it comes to prestige, STK Ibiza has the word nailed right down to a tee. Coming with glamour and luxury in abundance, its spectacular fusion of fine-dining, music, design and entertainment attracts a high-profile clientele making it the ultimate Ibiza playground for the rich and famous.
