Our final evening in Ibiza called for putting our fanciest outfits on and organising a little ‘well done for surviving the heat plus thanks for being nice to me on this trip’ dinner to round off a lovely holiday. I won’t lie, a lot of our travels in Ibiza were planned around food, and it’s probably the best way to live life frankly, as there was some delicious options available.
Before that though, we had to get a few fancy dress shots in and make use of the courtyard whilst it was all ours – having a backdrop a beaut as Hostal Flamingo certainly worked a treat, and after having spent the afternoon jumping the pool to lower our body temperatures and walking along the beach for chips and sangria (because why not?), it was nice to sit and relax in the courtyard and watch the sun set under the trees, and also surrounded by flamingos.
This little number is from Anthropologie a long long time ago, but it’s perfectly billowy to allow breeze and cover any food babies, which is everything you need on holiday when the heat soars. Keeping with the theme of blue, white, and pink, I took my Boden heels out for an overdue spin (via TK Maxx, and sold out soz) and teamed them with bright pink polish and my fave Radley bag – it might not fit a DSLR but it kept all the essentials like hand-wipes, suncream, Euros, and phone close by when needing to navigate the island.
After spending around an hour (eek) in total for photos, we finally hopped in the car and drove 40 minutes to Can Domingo, an Italian restaurant west of the island and situated again off the main road down a dirt-track, but surrounded in the most gorgeous views for a sunset dinner.
The main reason for going was because it has a vegan tasting menu, which I was all over, and also because we wanted to treat ourselves and top off a lovely trip with something special, and my lord was the food special.
Despite what we thought as complimentary bread and water actually being a bit overpriced and a jaw dropper come payment time, we happily and needily devoured two baskets of carbs to start because sun makes you hungry and I’m totally using it as an excuse because I love bread. It was delicious though, omg.
We all opted for some pretty carby mains too, Kelly and Jess going for a fancy Mac and Cheese, Jaye a beautifully presented risotto, and myself and Leigh the vegan Tagliatelle, which I was apprehensive of having at first because I don’t do well with cream, but it was the most incredible dish that was fresh yet belly filling at the same time, the perfect amount that of course left room for pudding…
Any time there’s chance to have vegan dessert I leap, I’m all for it, and when I spied Vegan Chocolate Terrine on the menu I was like ‘yep, serve it up, plate it up, get it in my belly’. It was deliciously rich, potentially a sharer which I did with a few of the girls, and was the perfect sweet treat to end the night.
Can Domingo not only serves delicious food, but also sells fresh produce and local art which is really beautiful (I wish I’d had more room in my suitcase to bring some bits home) and is well worth the drive out for an evening of tranquility.
With bellies full and our first drive home in the dark done (g’wan Jaye) we made plans for our final few hours in Ibiza, all beginning with a rather early sunrise…
