IBIZA - SANT ANTONI DE PORTMANY - ES REBOST DE CAN PRATS
ES REBOST DE CAN PRATS
We returned to one of our favourite restaurants serving traditional Ibicencan cuisine in Sant Antoni de Portmany (San Antonio) in September 2023.
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, rabbits, vegetables, potatoes, and other products necessary for everyday life.
When they opened in 1994, in 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 and keeping alive the tradition of Ibicencan cuisine.
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. We started with a bottle of Segura Viudas Aria Brut Nature Cava.
Pan con ailoil and olives.
As we had had a big lunch on the beach earlier, we skipped the starters and headed to the mains.
Fish was the order of the day, so we chose the pargo (grey snapper) and the roja (scorpionfish). The juices from the fish and olive oil made for a delicious, potato and vegetable side dish.
Roja (scorpionfish) In very few places the red scorpionfish has a flavour as intense as in Ibiza. This spiny fish, with a striking red color, has the finest texture on the island.
The fish was expertly fileted at the table.
We followed that with a couple of desserts.
Postre de la Casa
The meal was finished with a complimentary Copa de Heirbas.
The service, as usual, was great. This is one of the best restaurants on the Island for traditional food and is highly recommended.
Other traditional Ibicencan dishes are available
