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!

I had the sole here and it was the best fish I have ever tasted.... perfectly cooked and obviously very fresh. The tables are on the edge of the inlet on the marina so lovely views and the service was excellent. Maybe a bit pricey but I think definitely worth it.

We reviewed this before our visit and went there to eat Lobster on my birthday. Not disappointed. The meal was superb, the waiter recommended Lobster with onions, not a combination I had tried before and this was superb. Desert was a pineapple carpaccio served with coconut ice cream - nectar. As a celiac, everyone in the resturant we had contact... More

This place is run by professionals with professional waiters. It's all about fish here! We had prawns and john dory fish. The food is really excellent. The place is nice but nothing special. Prices are not cheap. The place is in a wonderful location and you can make a great walk after dinner. You really need to book in advance.

Met a couple from Ciutadella while in Madrid Airport. They recommended Cafe Balear. While sight seeing in Ciutadelle we stayed for dinner. Food was excellent. Waiter brought freshly caught fish from kitchen for our dinner selection. The food was beautifully displayed. Atmosphere was inviting. Considering we were in the Balearics during low season, we thought the wait staff at the... More
