I can highly recommend this restaurant. The food is excellent, the staff are very friendly and the head waiter Jose is very knowledgable and will recommend food and wine selections, as well as offering information on where the ingredients come from. The setting is perfect, you eat outdoors under olive trees and stars, It's very magical and romantic. The tuna... More

We booked a few days in advance with the intention of taking a look at the rural hotel for another year. We had a fantastic meal as a family; the entrecôte and the cochinillo were both Menorcan local and really nice. The service was also outstanding and made the whole experience lovely.

Without doubt this was the best meal of our holidays - and we visited 10 different restaurants in the fortnight. The tables are laid up in the garden under the trees and when the lights go on the atmosphere is fantastic. The service was very friendly with all the dishes are presented in their own unique style. We will definitely... More

Really romantic place!!! Tables outside in a super nice atmosphere, you will feel in another world. Candles and night lights everywhere, coupled with tables in the park. The food is amazing. Try the different types of entrantes - pulpo with truffles and gambes in a tartare!

An amazing way to spend our last night in Menorca. From the minute we arrived we felt welcomed and the candlelit seating area in the olive tree grove is a most beautiful setting. We had 3 courses of exquisite food for 8 people, cocktails, wine and coffees. The total was €350 euros - very very good value for the food... More

Five stars for ambience. Beautiful Mediterranean garden for an aperitif, staff in no hurry to seat you in the restaurant, but that's OK, the size of the gin requires lingering. Food is imaginatively presented and cooked with skill. The vaulted ceiling and stone Dining Room is a special place to be. A delightful experience, second visit confirmed my wife's enthusiasm...

This restaurant has a beautiful setting, but I'm afraid I won't be recommending it. While the food is fine although nothing to write home about and frankly a bit pretentious, the service is very slow. Suffice it to say that the dessert order arrived some half an hour after we ordered it, and by that time the restaurant was empty... More

This is an excellent restaurant, in the converted stables of a very old Menorcean house. We have visited many times, and love it.
