Owned by hip husband-and-wife team John Broekman and Leah Tilbury (formerly of Las Banderas in Formentera), this old coaching inn is an unexpected delight tucked away in the middle of the island. A scruffy parking lot just off the C-733 road is the unassuming location for this magical hideaway serving great food. Outside, a terrace twinkles with fairy lights; inside, there's a labyrinth of dining rooms lit by candles and chandeliers. The menu showcases retro dinner-party classics like steak tartare as well as pan-Asian offerings like calamari in chile, papaya, and lemon. Curiously, what draws celebs like Bryan Ferry and Kate Moss is Friday fish and chips and Sunday roasts.—Tara Stevens
