Had a fabulous meal here, was a bit more expensive than our usual meal, but the quality of food meant it cost a bit more. I had the fillet of veal and my husband the John Dory, the red wine and gin were excellent.

We had a gorgeous lunch here. It was very busy but the service was great. Food excellent and good value. Three courses, bread and a glass of wine for 20€. We couldn't believe it!!

The menu del dial is good value at 20 euros with a reasonable choice of starters & main courses. The setting is perfect & the... More

Slightly further out than the rest of the restaurants and slightly cheaper too! The fish was stunning really fresh and such a variety depending on what had been caught. Lovely service and enjoyable evening.

We decided to eat here on our last night as its next door to a small bar we frequently used, Tutti. This Restuarant seems to have escaped the eye of tourists and is frequented largely by Spanish families and, as a result, it tends to be deserted until after 9:00pm. Vell Parrander deserves to be busier the food is excellent... More

A lovely little quay side Restaurant at Cala Fonts, next to the Mojito Bar! A busy place with a mix of nationalities, tourists and locals, always a good sign! Started with the Clams, sweet and tender, in a garlicky sauce, delicious ! With a basket of bread rolls to soak up the sauce. We followed with Whole Lemon Sole, and... More

I would have loved to give this place a high score as it was recommended to us by a couple of friends, but I am afraid this was our biggest disappointment during our trip in Menorca. We were there for dinner and wanted to try the famous caldereta de langosta. As we didn't want to spend a fortune, before ordering... More

Offers a fantastic fresh seafood menu. The paella, the best we've tasted. Would highly recommend. Would suggest reserving a table as very popular.

Tried getting in Trebol but was fully booked, the waiter suggested I try this place. Booked a table outside with great view of the harbour. Was told we could turn up from 8pm until closing time. We went for 8ish and had drinks watching the activity on the water whilst watching the moon come up. Most tables did not get... More

On my last night in Menorca, on this visit - it won't be the last, our friend who has a flat in Es Castell took us to this place promising us the best fish in town. She was not wrong. Having asked for a recommendation from the owner I ordered the scorpion fish which was superb. Next time, and there... More
