So where to go on a Tuesday night, mid October with a group of friends for a farewell meal? The fantastic little no frills restaurant called Can Pilot in San Rafael was the choice. Throughout the summer we often drive past this restaurant and it always looks busy but this year we never managed to make it thank goodness October has arrived. We didn’t make a reservation but perhaps should have as inside was full but they managed to squeeze us on the terrace. The restaurant is a meat eaters heaven with a every cut of steak, chicken and other various meats the majority of which are cooked on the BBQ. The food itself is very simple and comes just as you order sides and garnish can be added from just 1. If you order fillet steak, this all you get but we agreed it is one of the best steaks on the island! Under no circumstances forget the bread and homemade ali oli and dessert you have the standard ice cream menu with a few postres de la casa. The service was great throughout and we all appreciated the chupito of Hierbas on the house.
Located in the center of the island it is only be 15mins or so from all major resorts so well worth a visit, many tourists only make El Ayoun or Elephant when visiting San Rafael but Can Pilot is certainly one to try.
Main course start from 11 – 25 with fillet steak at 20
House wine is 11 per bottle
