It benefits from both excellent location (in the old town of Ibiza) and the wonderful character-instilled building in which it is situated. Hence, Ispirto not only acts as a hub for locals throughout the year, but is also a magnet for the passing crowd, attracting a number of tourists. This eclectic mix of visitors helps to create the fantastic vibe that this place harbours all day and well into the night.
If you are looking for a bite to eat around Ibiza town then you will not go far wrong with Ispirto. It is a casual environment in which to refuel during a busy day of shopping or sightseeing, and ideally positioned for both. The kitchen is open between noon and 4pm for lunch and from 8pm until 1am for dinner, although croissants and fruit pies are available with your morning espresso and free wifi internet surfing. The cuisine is simple and limited, but this very much a positive and it works to great effect in this environment. The emphasis is behind the quality and freshness of the produce, much of which is sourced from the market, just a few streets away. Salads and sandwiches are combined with fois gras and lobster, which adds genuine class to the menu, all of which is at surprisingly reasonable prices.
The evening crowd is equally cosmopolitan and can be quite lively, although this is not strictly a pre-club bar. The atmosphere is much more relaxed, with cocktail drinkers spilling out onto the pavement terrace, socialising and taking in the surroundings. Inside, the décor (all newly-fitted since the takeover) is understated and stylish, and the bar is well-stocked including some of the more atypical spirits. The cocktail list is unrivalled and features all the classics and many creative inventions, which make use of kitchen ingredients such as honey and wasabe to construct some magnificent taste sensations.
