article imageWorld's most expensive restaurant to open in Ibiza, Spain

Ibiza - If traveling to Ibiza in the Balearic Islands this summer, put around 1,500 euros per person aside for an exclusive meal while you are in town. Yes, that is around $2,075 per head, at what will probably be the most expensive restaurant in the world.
Are you wondering what on earth you would get for this exorbitant fee? Well, diners at the SubliMotion restaurant in the upcoming Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza in Spain's Balearic Islands will be treated to the very latest in “avant-garde gastronomy” in a literal "theater to the senses."

The restaurant, opening in the "party capital of the world" on June 1, will be in the tender, expert hands of Paco Roncero, a chef extraordinaire with two Michelin stars and three Repsol Suns under his belt, previously at "La Terraza del Casino de Madrid."
You will be in limited company, as SubliMotion only serves 12 guests per night. You and the other 11 guests can indulge in a "gastro-sensory" spectacle which includes not only excellent gourmet dishes, but also lights, sounds and levitating dinner plates. A unique experience that "transcends dining."
Of course there is also "location, location, location," as the restaurant will be found at Ibiza’s emblematic Playa d’en Bossa.
The video above shows the planning stages of the restaurant, introduced by Paco Roncero (with speech dubbed into English). It gives an idea of the decor and special effects that will be used, all backed by beautiful music from the music collective (and beach bar), Cafe del Mar (the "head office" of which is also in Ibiza incidentally).
Of interest is the fact that Spain already has the best restaurant in the world, after the prestigious UK magazine Restaurant gave the award to the Celler de Can Roca restaurant in Girona.
There is also Spain's most exclusive restaurant in Barcelona, which only serves one group per night. Mercès One offers a unique experience whereby guests can choose not only the cuisine, but also the decor to go along with it.
By the way, if SubliMotion is a tad too expensive for your tastes, the hotel is also offering a branch of the famous Estado Puro restaurants (Pure State), which already has two locations in Madrid. This restaurant will offer creative cuisine at more affordable prices and can seat up to 300 diners.
Oh yes, and if "party capital of the world" sounds a bit too hectic for your vacation, while the capital city on the island of Ibiza is famous for its incredible dining and nightlife, the island does also offer beautiful and traditional rural landscapes and villages for your more peaceful pleasure, all within easy driving distance of Ibiza city.
