Tradition & Re-imagination

A true gastronomic icon in Ibiza Amalur opened its doors on July 14, 1981, and has been a must-visit culinary destination ever since. Set in a prominent location near the countryside village of Santa Gertrudis, the eye-catching blue finca is synonymous with style, taste and high-quality cuisine.

Amalur originally named in homage to the Basque goddess of Mother Earth by former owners Juan Félix Iñurrita and Emilio Zurbano, today, renowned restaurateur Francesco Manzoli (Can Carlos, Can Carlitos) is at the helm of Amalur. His unwavering passion for perfection and respect for the restaurant’s heritage is evident at every turn – from elegant furnishings and striking artwork on the walls to the creative, contemporary menu plus impeccable service, no detail has been overlooked in the thoughtful evolution of Amalur.

There are iconic fine dining destinations in Ibiza, and then, there is Amalur. The elegant restaurant – set in a chic finca on the road from Ibiza to Santa Gertrudis – has been attracting discerning locals and travellers since its inception in 1981 and in 2021, the legendary establishment has undergone a masterful evolution, with respect to its rich culinary and cultural heritage while stepping into a new chapter.

Open 365 days a year for lunch and dinner, with a fresh, open terrace in summer that is protected with glass walls in winter, the high-end restaurant remains filled with soul and sophistication. A place to gather your nearest and dearest, a destination for celebrations, a location to celebrate all the best moments in life, no matter how big or small. Amalur is your Italian fine dining restaurant in Ibiza.

With renowned restaurateur Francesco Manzoli (of Formentera’s Can Carlos fame) at the helm, Amalur enters its fourth decade of gastronomy with style, grace and an elevated Italian influenced menu. The Ibiza fine dining restaurant’s exterior is unmissable, courtesy of a newly painted blue hue inspired by the Balearic Sea and sky; inside, the classically decorated dining room has been tastefully decorated to allow its sweeping valley views to shine.

Step over the threshold and an authentic sense of Italian warmth, passion and hospitality is ever-present. Each of the team members at Amalur have been selected for their experience, knowledge and well-honed intuition, knowing when you need them, invisible when you don’t. Fine dining is at the heart of the experience, but in a timeless Italian way – guests are welcomed in as family, invited to settle in for the evening and savour the journey.

A beautifully hand-written menu explains the Ibiza fine dining restaurant’s ethos of creating high-end cuisine using only the freshest local produce available. Highly experienced chef Massimo Larosa (who trained in the Michelin-starred kitchens at San Domenico, d’Arzak, El Celler de Can Roca) and his talented co-hort, Antonio Borriello (whose culinary journey includes stints at Michelin-starred Leoni, plus Piccola Cucina, Casa Tu Miami and the Miami Four Seasons Hotel) is behind the creative, contemporary and colourful plates that come from the Amalur kitchen – dishes that taste as every bit as exquisite as they look.
