Ancient People - authentic and aesthetically pleasing
Finding a decent curry in Eivissa became easier late last year with the arrival of the Ancient People restaurant on the Avenida España. It can often be hard to park in Eivissa town and the Avenida España is no exception, but that inconvenience is definitely worthwhile to enjoy a nice curry at a good price. So if you're lucky enough to be hungry in the vicinity of the Vara de Rey this venue is well worth a visit. After all curry is not only the perfect winter warmer, but also sensible food in our generally hot climate.
Owned by Robert, who used to run the Bali Beach restaurant on Playa d'en Bossa beach, the ambience of this venue is similar - imported from Florida's South Beach back in the day when it was cool. Comfy cushions upon which to lounge around low tables are an option for your meal, for your digestive, or simply for relaxing over a drink with a friend, while enjoying the alternative music policy.
The décor is unusual with multi-coloured mosquito nets hanging alongside the hand painted temple walls. Unusual cut glass lights and cushions adorn the whole and the smell of fine curry wafts past the table - bring on the fabulous home made Nan bread and Tandoori starter!
They offer an extensive range of authentic, north Indian curries and accoutrements and the food is excellent, courtesy of Robert who's been in the culinary trade for over 20 years.
If there are lots of you planning to visit and eat, it is a good idea to book first as this place only has room for thirty diners at any one time. However, there is a large bar area at which you can take a drink while waiting for your table. This restaurant is extremely popular, particularly considering the current dearth of good curry houses on Ibiza, so if you can't book a table - book a take-away.
You won't regret it!
