So. Let’s start at the top, literally! Undoubtedly the island’s most elegant and breathtaking sushi venue is Kyupiddo, a magnificent venue situated in pride of place at the top of the Dalt Vila, the ancient fort which presides over Ibiza Town. The venue itself is enchanting, but it is the view over the town and the port which will stay with you for a lifetime. The sushi is renowned for being fabulously fresh and the extensive wine, sake and cocktail list makes this an impossibly perfect sushi destination.
