Original may not always turn out to be the best but in the case of Anita’s, quaintly tucked on a corner of lovely San Carlos, this is certainly true. The 1960’s saw this place as a haunt of the fabled hippies of yesteryear and Anita’s has effortlessly managed to maintain this vibe ever since. The surprisingly large interior is covered with a large variety of paintings apparently gathered over time as payment when the artist couldn’t cover their tab with hard cash. There is also a cute, shaded courtyard at the back, a perfect spot to enjoy one of the bars’ home made Hierbas Ibicencas, Ibiza’s favourite liqueur.
Anita’s offers a large menu of good quality tapas and some larger dishes. The clientele are an international mix, both true locals, long term residents and tourists in the know. There are very few places on the island that can compete with Bar Anita when it comes to authenticity, it truly typifies what people frequently refer to as the ‘real Ibiza’.
