The origins

Can Domingo Restaurant

Can Domingo is the culmination of a dream. Conceived and created by three friends whose passion for excellent food, superb wines, efficient, friendly service and a love for Ibiza has created one of the most beautiful and relaxing dining experiences on the Island.

A summer breeze sends the scent of wild flowers through the windows of the dining room; tables sit nestled amongst the gardens and terraces, under a canopy of mature olive and fruit trees. The menu presents a true Italian sensibility, contemporary fine dining with a touch of tradition, reflecting the abundance of high quality local produce and the providence of the Can Domingo organic garden.

The heart of the restaurant started with a shared dream of an island within an island, an oasis that is tranquil, relaxed, discreet. Can Domingo is like coming home.

People are the most important thing

Alessandro Barni Spadacini

Alessandro grew up in Milan and studied economics, becoming a tax advisor. Having always held a dream of living and opening a restaurant in Ibiza since his first holiday at the age of 19, in 2011 he and his wife took the leap and relocated to pursue their ideal of creating a different kind of life for their family. For Alessandro, food is about family and connection.

Giuseppe Vivacqua

Growing up in Turin in a family with roots in the southern Italian province of Calabria, Giuseppe was raised on a mix of two very different cuisines. His culinary odyssey has seen him work in some of the finest restaurants in Italy, landing in Ibiza 14 years ago. When not in the kitchen or tending the Can Domingo garden, Beppe is walking the forests of Ibiza, perusing his library of cookbooks and thinking, always, about food.

Guido Roncarati

Guido Roncarati has lived in Ibiza for six years and worked at Can Domingo since the restaurant opened in 2012. Originally from Milan, his sister convinced him to come and experience the magic of the island, and he has never looked back. One of Guido’s favourite things about working at Can Domingo is the romantic ambience of the garden when the candles are lit and the sky is full of stars, especially so when the jazz band play. When he’s not at Can Domingo Guido loves to get out in nature and discover the secret corners of Ibiza.

Belen Peláez Rosales

Belen Peláez Rosales is from Jaén in the heart of Andalucía. She has been working as a waiter at Can Domingo from the very start and returns every summer to join the team she considers more like a family. One of her favourite dishes on the menu is the cochinillo de Segovia, slow roasted suckling pig. Belen loves the secretive and beautiful location of Can Domingo and the creativity of the kitchen team. When she’s not working, she takes time out to work on her tan at the island’s most gorgeous beaches.
