IBIZA - SANT ANTONI DE PORTMANY - ES REBOST DE CAN PRATS
ES REBOST DE CAN PRATS
This is our second look at some traditional Ibicencan cuisine in Sant Antoni de Portmany (San Antonio) in Ibiza.
Located in a house built in the early years of the 20th century, it was one of the first shops in Sant Antoni. It sold food like, chickens, eggs, cheeses, pebrassos, rabbit, vegetables, potatoes and other produce necessary for everyday life.
When they opened in 1994, in this, the home of the grandparents of the current owners having been in the family for more than 100 years, it was done with the idea and passion of preserving the tradition of Ibicencan cuisine.
Not the biggest restaurant, with a few small rooms in hidden nooks and crannies it displays old artefacts from Ibiza.
A few of the traditional Ibicencan dishes served here include Frita de porcella amb pebrassos (fired pork and Ibicenco wild mushrooms) Manitas de cerdo (pigs trotters) Frita de calamar con sobrasada (fried squid with sobrasada, a sort of local soft spreading chorizo) Costres y pescado seco de Formentera (dried fish from Formentera) Berenjenas rellenas de carne (aubergine stuffed with meat) Frita de pulpo (fried octopus) Calamares a la bruta (squid cooked in its own ink)
Also, fabulous fresh local fish or local succulent lamb.
On our return visit in August 2018 we had a few different courses than before.
Croquetas de bacalao (cod croquettes).
Ensalada de crostes con anchoas del Cantábrico (Cantabrian anchovies with bread chunks and tomato salad)
Plus an old favourite, sofrit pagés (a stew of spiced pork, lamb, chicken, sobrasada, butifarra (catalan sausage), morcilla (black pudding) garlic, peppers, cinnamon & saffron Ibizan potatoes).
We finished off the meal with an hierbas Ibicencas which was given to us (on the house).
This is what we had on our visit in October 2017
Ensalada Es Rebost (a salad of apple, blue cheese, red bell peppers, carrot and green leaves)
Plato del dia (figs with Jamón)
Gamba Ibicenca ajillo (garlic prawns from Ibiza)
Which is, a stew of spiced pork, lamb, chicken, sobresada, butifarra (Catalan sausage), morcilla (black pudding) garlic, peppers & potatoes with cinnamon & saffron
All washed down with a bottle of CUNE D.O.Rioja 2015.
For dessert we had
Tarta Romanica Floá Fig sorbet
The bill for 3 people came to €99
Service was friendly and helpful and as usual in Spanish restaurants, children are always welcome.
We had no reservation and arrived quite late in the evening but they made up a table for us after a short wait.
It would be best to make a reservation in advance.
The menu del dia is a very good deal, offering starter, main course, dessert, bread, coffee and wine for €15
