Best caldereta in Ciutadella, the service is excellent and the location is really nice, right in front of the port.

Cafe Balear is known by the locals as the best restaurant in Ciutadella. We visited there and were not disappointed. The feel of the restaurant is very traditional. Although my wife disagrees, I think the only thing missing was your grandma's doily's as the crockery is more pot than fine china with green flowers and green table cloths, but don't... More

We had dinner two adults and two children. The adults (2) ordered the Famous "Caldereta de langostino" (lobster)) and chose the menu which is a lot cheaper than the single dish and serves more than enough food. The three menu starters were shared with the children and served plenty for all four. For second the children had "Solomillo" and "Dorada... More

If you visit Menorca, and you want to eat a really good Calderata, and fresh fish, this is one of the best choices. It is located right on the Ciutadella's port, lovely place to have nice dinner

All fresh and tasty. Service good. Had to wait 35 min to seat but was worth it. The location is on the port of the ancient capital of menorca. Suggestive!

Menorca have several good restaurants (es Cranc and their memorable "Panadera de Llagosta" (a dish of lobster and patatoes you have to order in advance), es moli des Foc among others), but in my opinion, Cafe Balear is "my must" when I go Menorca every summer. It worth it to queu for 30-45 min to have a table outside and... More

... Called caldereta de langosta I think - one of the nicest things i have ever eater. OK, not cheap for a soupy stew thingy but getting flavour this good is a proper cooking process. Great fixed price menu too. Lovely surroundings down at the end of the marina. Have been here 3 times now and will continue to go... More

Went there twice, with a couple of friends first and after a few days with my partner. On both occasions we managed to get a table outside by the water. Location is very nice, with excellent atmosphere. Food was just excellent, fresh, simple but tasty. Huevos rotos con langosta was a surprise together with some delicious 'hortigas de mar'. Possibly,... More

This was our favourite restaurant in Ciutadella . We sampled numerous starters and main courses and all were cooked to perfection . I adored the fish courses- they have their own boat which supplies their restaurant and others too. The staff, the location and the service are first class in this very busy restaurant. The clientele appeared to be local... More

We got some great fish and squid dishes. A bit pricey, but excellent food and service. We got a table by the canal, watching the fish and ducks swimming by. Do NOT miss the home made Lemon Sorbet and the strawberry ice cream!
