- Eatery serving Specialties from the
Middle East -
In the center of
IBIZA island, in a small pretty
Santa Gertrudis, a new restaurant, of
MIDDLE EAST FOOD, has been
The founder of the restaurant,
Moshe, arrived to IBIZA
more than 20 years ago and has been captured by the beauty and the
relaxation of this small Balearic island.
In order to live on the island
Moshe has left his skill as
Industrial designer and dedicate his time to establish his own
Casaforma Dinamica, a company specialized in
sustainable construction methods, that has been running successfully
Due to the crisis that construction is experiencing these days,
and as result of bad planning of the islands development, limitation of
land to build on, bureaucracy, etc.
Moshe decided to add another activity to what he
does,.........something he always wanted to do......Open
a Middle East restaurant.
During his first years in
various occasions, already tried to introduce, some
Middle east food,
such as : ’falafel’ Hummus, and
Some of the places where he has tried this, were:
a new market on the way to Sant Antonio, and also in private occasions.
Unfortunately in those days, these initiatives did not last. Nowadays,
as Spain in general, and IBIZA,
in particular, became more open to experiencing different types of food,
Moshe felt that times
were ready to open an
Middle East Restaurant.
It is a challenge to open a new restaurant in a small village, already
home to quite a lot of restaurants of all kinds, Spanish, Italian,
Japanese etc., but since nowadays
Santa Gertrudis is rapidly becoming a more cosmopolitan town, it
was ready to have a new nice and small eatery, dedicated to
Middle Eastern food.

mainly meat eaters...
