On this cloudy and drizzly day in Ibiza - Aubergine offered the perfect refuge for a coffee and a health kick of a juice (which I seriously needed). Aubergine is part of the Atzaro group; which does interiors, experiences and food so well. Aubergine is a farm to table restaurant with a cute shop in a serene setting.
A bit of exploring today at this lovely place called Tanis in Ibiza. The shop is owned by Tatjana Berger-Sandhofer and Nick Lording; an absolutely lovely couple.
Ibiza; for most this is a “love at first sight” type of place. For me it took time; time to appreciate the landscape, time to identify the unique energy generated here, time to understand that there is a rhythm here like no other and time to make life long friends. Now, almost 15 years after my first visit, I still discover new wonders and am as besotted with the place as ever.
It feels a little bit like coming home every time I visit. Maybe it’s the “island life” vibe, maybe it’s the flow of life or maybe the frequency and intensity of each visit.
This is a place where contracts are woven together; where you and everyone else can be completely themselves or completely reinvent themselves.
Mikasa is located on the edge of Marina Botafoch, right by the yachts, a little down from the cruise and cargo terminal and across the water from Dalt Villa - the view is magnificent, the energy is ever-present and the terrace is secluded enough to remind you of the serenity that Ibiza always offers. Mikasa; my home for the week.
