A fresh new look for Bambuddha
There are many restaurants on the island and one of the most famous ones is Bambuddha, formally know as Bambuddha Grove. The owner John Moon has managed to create a temple that happens to serve refreshments. We went to Bambuddha to try it out for you and this is what we experienced. Grab yourself a good glass of wine. Are you ready…?
From Bambuddha Grove to Bambuddha Ibiza
For the regular visitor of our beautiful island Bambuddha Grove is an icon. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is just stunning. When you take a seat at one of the spaces in the restaurant your mind wanders off to Bali. But wake up quick because you are in Ibiza. Every good concept needs to refresh sometimes. And that is exactly what John and his team did. The first change is the name from Bambuddha Grove to just Bambuddha Ibiza.
A fresh new look
You can say that the restaurant really has matured and changed in a positive way. The new general manager, Jonjon the son of John has managed to create a fresh new look together with his father. When you enter the restaurant today you will find a beautiful open space with big pillars in the middle of the area. On your right hand side you will find a cocktail bar were you can relax until your table is ready.
Friendly staff makes you feel at home
We were treated very well by friendly the staff of Bambuddha Ibiza. Every little thing is geared towards service and hospitality. The waiters have time for a friendly chat and they make you feel at home in mere seconds. We were spoiled with a fantastic 5 course menu which we will not share in extreme detail, not because we don’t want to… but because we would like you to go for yourself and experience first hand what kind of magic the chef performs in the kitchen.
Lamb from heaven served in a temple
What we would like to reveal about the menu is the lamb dish. We were sitting at the table with the new general manager Jonjon, who happens to be half Dutch, so it was a little Dutch connection. He explained that this lamb, which melts on your tongue by the way, was cooked very slowly for 24 hours. Can you imagine what kind of preparation that must be in the kitchen…? We were spoiled to the max, and we highly recommend that you will let yourself get spoiled when you are on the white island for your dream holiday.
We love deserts at Bambuddha Ibiza
Ibiza veterans you don’t have to worry… Bambuddha Ibiza has matured and came out better than the old version. The restaurant breaths the sexual and spiritual nature. Change is scary sometimes, but in Bambuddha’s case change was for the better. We will sign off with the words of John Moon “Bambuddha is a temple that happens to serve refreshments.” We say amen to just that. If you enjoy being spoilt while on a holiday in Ibiza, we are more than happy to arrange a great table for you at Bambuddha. Our Ibiza Inside service is at your service.
