We tried 2 of the top-listed tapas restaurants here on TripAdvisor and, unsurprisingly, they were all booked up. We then wandered into a few and eventually found Mar a Vila and, my God, am I glad we did.
I have lived in the Basque Country so I loved a return to pintxos (little pieces of bread with all manner of delicious morsels on top) and their tapas were just divine. Because me and my friend spoke Spanish, I think their staff took pity on us and found us a table at the back, which was great as it's partly outside.
The staff were wonderful, the price was great, the food was incredible and I'm salivating now at the thought! They even had nice toilets which isn't a given in Spain!

If you want taste some typical tapas this restaurant is the right place. Very close to the city center we ate some different kind of fresh tapas: with paprika & cheese, with ham, nuss & cheese, with vegetables and we took place outside, alone, the right way to relax after a walk around the city.

If you fancy tapas with a little bit of a difference, Mar a Vila in Ibiza Town is definitely worth a visit. Centrally located with a rustic and relaxed interior this lovely restaurant served some of the tastiest tapas I've ever enjoyed.

Amongst the dishes we had were potato croquettes made with purple potatoes; popcorn chicken, with the odd but tasty addition of grapes which we dipped in mayonnaise and bacon crumb; a fantastic 'spring roll' which was more like a pastry case filled with braised pork cheek; and a squid sandwich.

Service was excellent. Indeed our waiter told us to order less than we'd originally planned so we wouldn't waste any. He was right too - the portion sizes were very generous. Our meal cost less than 50 Euros for the tapas, a beer, a wine and a soft drink, which was really good value.

For higher-end tapas with a bit if a twist. Mar a Vila is well worth a visit.
