Some sports fans like to rock up to a bar and cheer on their team. Others live for the traditions: tailgating, party-hosting, and dressing head-to-toe in fan apparel. Here are so…
When I heard that Ibiza was opening in downtown Norfolk, my piqued curiosity and nostalgia for European cuisine led me to try what they had to offer. The ambiance alone alleviated any doubt I had about the authenticity of its nomenclature, and I proceeded to decline a table in favor of the bar. I was welcomed by two gentleman behind the bar who presented me with a wine menu and a very impressive selection of tapas. Though most of the dishes were beyond my pronunciation, I proceeded as is custom for foreigners to point to the dishes that I thought sounded most appetizing. Three tapas later (I believe it was fried eggplant and the calamari which are always a safe bet), they brought me the tenderloin. I asked for a steak knife, but was kindly reassured that none was required. The fillet was sublime, covered in sautéed mushrooms and resting atop a bed of mashed potatoes, and my resolve to only eat half my entrée was quickly vetoed by gluttony and an appreciation for a perfectly good steak. My only complaint was towards my inability to sample the flan, but perhaps I'll dedicate my second visit to tasting more wines and appeasing my sweet tooth. With an unparalleled decor, personable staff and a cuisine as unique as the area they are located in, Ibiza stands to revolutionize Mediterranean cuisine in not only Ghent, but all of Hampton Roads.
We had made reservations for a very large party this past weekend, and our experience was wonderful. When we first walked in the atmosphere, as beautiful and intimate as it was, felt electric. There was a completely packed house with the patio filled up as well. The wait staff was very attentive and 100% helpful with any questions we had about the menu. Thinking that the food would take quite a while to prepare, considering our large party and the crowded restaurant, it was coming out faster than we had expected, And it was delicious! We ordered so many different tapas and there was honestly not one that we didn't like (the pollo relleno was my favorite). This was also my first time trying Spanish wine, and it accompanied the food to perfection. All in all, this was a unique and surprisingly delightful experience that we look forward to sharing with many more of our friends. **We did have a little trouble finding the restaurant. those of you looking online for directions, they are located on 20th st.
I'm a long time OV resident and love some chanello's now and then. the quality of the pizza hasn't changed since I was a kid (which could be good or bad depending how you look at it). personally I like the white pizzas they have. last time I ordered a pizza from here, the driver drove past my house and took my order all the way to VA Beach! I live literally 5 minutes away from the east OV location. I was upset, but the pizza was still hot and delicious when he got to my house so all was forgiven (not a big tip for him though). all in all, not the best slice in norfolk (or even in OV)by a mile, but they have been consistently good for at least 12 years and have always been supportive of out armed forces community in the area. try it once or twice.
