    If you want to jump out of New Haven to Hamden then try Ibiza Tapas on Dixwell. Similar food to Ibiza on High St. half the price, plenty of free parking!

      yes, ive tried it....it was good but not a great dinner place....but absolutely beautiful bar. I wasnt happy with the service there either. I enjoy Ibiza so much.....i hear a rumor that they also had a chef change??? is that true?

        I, too, recommend Ibiza Tapas. No..it's not a formal dinner place, but the food is unfailingly terrific. We had a late dinner there last Sat night and literally every bite of everything we ate was beyond wonderful. While I realize that people looking for entree sized portions in a more refined atmosphere might be disappointed, if you feel like "a little of this, a little of that", along with some very well selected wines (and prices that are quite reasonable), Ibiza Tapas is THE place!
