Bambuddha Grove, St Eulalia, Ibiza

June 18, 2007

Up in the hills, halfway between Ibiza Town and St Eulalia, Bambuddha Grove comes highly recommended by Mr Rice and his pals. Drinks in the bar led us to this charming bartender who prepared the perfect mojitos, known at Bambuddha Grove as Ganesha Green.

He got the amounts of mint, sugar, lime juice and rum absolutely spot on. We could easily have filled ourselves up on these and skipped dinner.

Bambuddha Grove calls itself a Mediterrasian® food village. The minute you walk through the entrance you are enveloped by the decadence. It’s generously furnished with tall, elegant bamboo, chandeliers and buddhist art on the walls, and softly lit to create the most chilled out, sumptuous arena in which to enjoy the Thai, Sushi, Sushimi or Bambuddha Buffet.

What a delightful selection. Clockwise, from right: spare ribs; vegetable curry with tofu and sweet potato; pad thai; chicken with cashew nuts; lamb massaman; seafood curry. Every single dish was delicately and uniquely flavoured. This was one of my best restaurant experiences. The food was divine, the atmosphere elegant and the company superb.

Recipe for Mojito
2 parts white rum
1 part lime juice
top up soda water
10 mint sprigs
1 part ice cubes
1 lime slice
1 teaspoon brown sugar

Mash the mint and sugar together. Add the rum and lime juice and pour over the ice. Top up with soda water. Garnish with a slice of lime.
