A little off the beaten path, great service, and a relatively unique menu. Portions are very generous, and I've never had such tender wild boar before in my life. It was delicious, and I'm so glad that we happened upon this rustic place.

I had a tomato salad that was OK, but had in it: tomatoes, onions, olives, capers, blackberries, nectarines and seaweed, which didn't really go together. My steak was basically horrible.

This restaurant was once a bakery and the eating area below ground level with a window looking out on to the cobbled narrow lane, so able to watch the people walk by. Another advantage is that it is nice and cool. The menu is quite different from harbour side restaurants and had delicacies like rabbit and wild boar which we... More

In previous years I have had excellent food from excellent staff here. Now in June 2014 I was forced to go twice and had poor food on both occasions. The new staff have poor waiting skills and little English.My companions were pleased with their food however.

The service at El Horno was consistently good, we went 3 times during an 11 night stay in Ciutadella & on our third visit were given some complimentary drinks before our meal . The food was very reasonable & also excellent, in particular the pork fillet with red wine sauce, so good I had it twice! I would definitely recommend... More

We do not normally visit a restaurant on holiday more than once, as we like to try as many different ones as we can. However we made an exception with this one. Enjoyed both visits tremendously. The choice was not large but varied and well cooked, and good wine list. In particular the menorca cheesecake was worth the visit alone.... More

I had a bad feeling when I passed by on one occasion and the plase was totally empty. Got back the following night for a meal as my husband really wanted to go. Basically the staff (one member of, to be precise) was incredibly rude, the sevice slow and the food average - a waste of time. I was particularly... More

Just read the revues criticising the El Horno - I am not sure they are talking about the same El Horno my wife and I visited. We came across the El Horno after trying 3 different restaurants in the marina and found the El Horno to be excellent. We spent the remaining 7 evenings of our holiday at the El... More
