Restaurant Can Berri Vell a hidden gem in Ibiza
There are many great restaurants on Ibiza but before you know it, you are always going to the same, favourite and mostly famous places. So we are here to find the best restaurants for you to enjoy and these are not always the ones you see on every Ibiza website or in the magazines…. We’d love to introduce to you Can Berri Vell which is definitely in our top list. Are you ready for a gastronomical journey?
Right in the heart of the little village of San Augustin, next to the church, you’ll find this great restaurant. Although San Augustin is close to the famous sunset strip at San Antonio, most people drive past this little place.
Can Berri Vell
When you drive up the hill towards the church you immediately know that you found one of Ibiza’s little gems. The former finca that was built in the 17th century, has been the home of the restaurant for 30 years and has a great history. When you walk through the wooden door you go back in time. Being a sucker for history, the little gate at the entrance was there already in the 1930’s. Isn’t that cool! Can Berri Vell is a lovely and cosy restaurant. Being with a group of friends you can have your own little corner with a big table and for romantic candle-light dinners there are tables for two on the balcony with stunning views on the highest mountain on the island.
The Ibiza culture all in one place and found back in culinary creations
At Can Berri Vell they know how to cook and how to spoil their guests! Using local premium products and mixing the typical authentic Ibicenco kitchen with western influences, chef Bruno and his team keep on surprising. How about Pumpkin mousse with herbs from Ibiza’s ground and curry, the highest quality Iberico ham, Octopus with French Violet potatoes, Italian ravioli, local meat that melts on the tongue, fresh fish and heavenly desserts (ask for the white and brown chocolate surprise)……?!
The restaurant has a very large wine cellar with the most exclusive wines. Sommelier Vicente has a hugh knowledge about wines and knows where to find the best and what to serve to make you feel like you are in heaven. The one that really stood out above all was a wine that is produced in Formentera, Terramoll de Formentera. A big surprise since we didn’t knew that Formetera produces such a big wine. But the wonderful Terraprima, La Rosa, Riesling and beauty red wine D’ Berna were more then we expected.
Can Berri Vell is a must visit. The best wines and delicious food in a tranquil and peaceful setting with the best view, best staff oh, and not to forget the stunning back drop of the sun saying good bye to the sunset strip. We rate Can Berri Vell 5 out of 5 stars…
