Can Pilot Restaurant and Grill
Sant Rafel de sa Creu
This legendary restaurant in the village of Sant Rafel, famous for its barbecue grilled meats is a favourite with Ibizan residents.
Its charcoal table grills gives that perfect taste to the beef tenderloin, entrecôte, T-bone steak and more unusual cuts of meat such as skirt or bavette.
The also offer other meats such as succulent lamb chops, farm-reared chicken, Catalan Butifarra sausage, and “secreto” a choice cut of pork, criollo chorizos etc. along with the select cuts of beef such as T-bone steak, the restaurant’s star dish.

Let me just say the meat is as good as it gets and in our case, it was cooked absolutely perfect, if anything I would have preferred to salt it to my liking, seen as I normally do not use salt at all, it had loads when it arrived but it could be just my preference.. . Note that we have been to several 3* Michelin restaurants, some of the best out there, so I do have plenty experience, also I am a happy amateur cook who cooks dinner every day. Big credit to the chef(s) for the precise cooking of the meat. We arrived early to go to the local market, not realising we then arrived late to the dinner due to the time difference between the UK and Spain. Our mistake. However we got a table and it all worked out. Service was pretty efficient but unlike all other restaurants we have been to on our trip (including NOBU and a few other top tier restaurants) it seemed to us we were a bit of a bother, I was missing the smile and a genuinely friendly attitude. Yes it was packed, but then it’s up to the manager to get enough people in to do their job and make you feel really welcome. Or perhaps they are on (auto)Pilot because they can do no wrong and people keep coming due to the reputation of the place. I’m not sure. What I am sure about is that it’s a dangerous path to take to show a bit of arrogance, it only takes some poor reviews today to start going downwards. Would like to come back again to see if it was just an average day here or if this is how you get served every time. Thanks for a great meal with potential to improve the customer experience Can Pilot.

Delicious meat. We got tbone charcoal steak for two people and its really enough to get full. Side dishes in my opinion nothing special, but a pepper sauce its on point.

Food was good (the salad was missing any flavouring). The meat was really nice. However, the service was poor. As foreigners, we didn’t feel welcomed at all. Plus, after speaking with neighbouring guests, we weren’t the only ones to think so.

Amazing meat, really fast service and great attention. Probably the best to eat meat in Ibiza. Nice price, for 18-23 you can eat with grill. Solomillo 👌👌👌.

Oh tasty Bbq cooked to perfection is your thing? Friendly service is what you want? A very good and affordable wine list is what you like - well this place has it all. We went for some amazing starters which were manchego cheese and bellota iberico ham. This combo was really tasty and the ham was carved from the giant whole ham. For mains we had the beef steak and the swordfish combined with veggies and chips/fries. outstanding. For drinks go for some of that good red from Ribera del Duero (we had Pago de los Capellanes 2018). To finish this exciting experience we had local flao and coffee. 100% worth the trip. Make sure to reserve a table as this place gets crowded.
