Dodging the unpredictable English weather for a weekend, we set off for the white isle to review one of our favourite go-to restaurants in the Smoke: STK Ibiza. Having already paid a number of visits to the London branch we knew we were in for a night of glam, glitz and glitter. It’s already one of the sexiest steakhouses in the Balearics but to top it off it was located at the Ibiza Corso Hotel & Spa along the Marina Botafoch, home to glamorous celebs and the super-wealthy.
We arrived on a Sunday evening but on an island that never sleeps the party here had only just started. Keeping in line with STK London, the dining room resembles a nightclub with dark ceiling, dark carpets and purple lighting. Guests take their seats in white booths as a DJ spins tracks live behind a podium, the volume gently increasing as the night progresses. The design scheme features an abundance of curvilinear black platform seats and booths with a separate lounge area to kick back in, and the room is replete with mirrored surfaces to aid and abet people watching. During our visit it was hard to tell the general age group as everyone was dressed to impress, turning heads with their fashionable outfits and charm.
We began our food feast with the Lil‘ BRGs - essentially Wagyu sliders nested between miniature sesame seed buns. Equally as impressive were the soft shell crab sliders and lobster fish fingers served with a distinctively flavoursome wasabi mayo. The USDA sirloin was delectable and if you’re feeling particularly self-indulgent bolt on the juicy king prawns. If you’d prefer a different cut, the menu has a mouth-watering nine to choose from with an array of unique sauce including the STK and the mother. We ploughed our way through the meat alongside roasted seabass, lobster mac and cheese and parmesan truffle fries.
As we ate and sipped cocktails we enjoyed the unique live performances from dancers to magicians interacting with the crowd and carrying the night away. The desserts were just as fun as the entertainment with choices like candy floss, salted caramel popcorn and their house version of a Snickers bar. We took ourselves to the upstairs lounge bar once our stomachs decided it was time for a break and enjoyed a nightcap on the balcony. It was the ideal set up to a fun-packed and delicious meal.
