Almost as an homage to Ibiza's famous exports – salt, where Ibiza gets its name; The White Isle, and style; the Cotton Beach Club is gleaming white throughout, creating a sense of relaxed sophistication.
The majority of the seating options are inside the terrace with its unobstructed view of the seascape, however, there are a few tables outside for those who wish to enjoy the heat under the cover of sails and parasols. There is also a decked area adjacent to the terrace where people can imbibe while appreciating a cool sea breeze or the small, private beach that’s perfect for lounging with a cocktail in hand.
This gorgeous venue attracts equally gorgeous patrons; making it the perfect escape for the jet set who appreciate the finer things in life. Its sophistication is evident in every detail from crisp white linens to sparkling glasses.
Upon our arrival, we were greeted by two beautifully spirited girls with abundant smiles, who led us to our table past the reception area with its cute lounge area with comfy armchairs (a great spot where guests can chill out).
As you’d expect with an establishment of this calibre, all ingredients are locally sourced, and everything is handmade with panache on the premises. The menu is an interesting fusion of influences across Asian and Mediterranean cuisine and includes a selection of meats (beef, ham, burgers, lamb and pig), fish and seafood and salad. The desserts are pretty special and the wine list quite an adventure. I'm a big fan of sharing and being so close to the ocean, we fancied diving into some of the seafood, sushi and fish on offer. We went for a mix of South American and Asian flavours.
It was so hot on the day that unfortunately the sushi Chef's Plate got warm pretty quickly without us realising, so we didn't finish the last few pieces, which was a shame. So, if you order this, ask your waitress to hold it until you are ready, so it’s served perfectly chilled.
To finish, we went for the incredible coconut crème brulee with vanilla, coconut and lime and the creamy white chocolate soup, which sounds odd, but is divine.
The service was fantastic throughout our meal; at no point did we feel rushed nor suffocated by over-eager staff and our wine and water was always topped up in perfect rhythm.
Open daily from April until October. Food is served from 1.30pm until 01.00am.

The Cotton Beach Club offers a premium experience that is a must for your next Ibiza itinerary. The food, wine and staff are first rate. Deluxe fine dining for the discerning. Or as the Spanish say, Exquisita gastronomia. It's Ibicenco style and sophistication personified. We'll definitely be back.
