5 suggestions for your Sant Bartomeu dinner in San Antonio

For this festive day, nothing beats our fried empanadita de caviar (caviar patty) and a plate of oysters. These two starters are the perfect choice to set the mood for this festive night, wouldn’t you say? And if you’d like to stick to sea flavours, you can order the butterfly-cut anchovies marinated with garlic, parsley and lemon or the clams in green sauce.

For the main course, to celebrate San Antonio’s local fiestas, nothing better than the Josper-grilled crayfish with frita ibicenca and the creamy rice with red shrimp. But if you’d rather go for meat on Sant Bartomeu night, we recommend our lamb chops with frita ibicenca.

And for dessert, something to take us back to our happiest childhood summers: strawberries with cream and chocolate. Or what about our matcha cheesecake?

These suggestions are in honour of the traditional Sant Bartomeu fiestas, but you’ll find other delicious dishes on our menu for you to choose the food that most tempts you and enjoy a special dinner followed by the fireworks that mark the end of the local fiestas.
