Food & Service ok

We were there for lunch, just to pick some small stuff. My wife took the daily Menue and i took the "Tapas offer". All was served quite quick. The taste was ok and much enough for the value. Service were friendly. All in all quite ok. But nothing Special.

A great restaurant that's floating on Water. Excellent food and service. A perfect setting. Slightly more expensive but you expect that in the harbour.

The food was good, not exceptional. Portion sizes are good, but we ordered a couple of items from the daily specials menu without asking the price. Our bill was over €250 euros for 4 people. The starters were €20-€25 each. Came away feeling ripped off. Service was OK up until we asked for the bill and then there was a... More

Visited with some friends while visiting Mahon on the Star Flyer Clipper ship.Chose it purely for location which is fantastic being right by the sea on a pontoon. The food was very good but we should have asked about the starters of fried boquerones and calamari as they were far too big. The shared sea bream with potatoes and tomatoes... More

We choose the restaurant because of the lovely atmosphere and the location on the water. But were quite disappointed with food: 1. It turns out it's impossible to get anything other than the "fried chicken with fries" for children. And even the fries were stale. All other food is mostly for two people or more and impossible to order for... More

We were hoping to have lunch here, but the service was that bad we left. The waiter came to take our drinks order and as soon as he heard our English voices he walked off and served a Spanish couple instead, which I found very rude. In the end we went to the bar ourselves. We waited a further 15... More

This restaurant is on the landward side of the road but also has a pontoon floating in the harbour. There are about 10 tables on the edge of the pontoon right at the waters edge, plus others in the centre of the square pontoon. It's a wonderful spot for lunch. We enjoyed fresh grilled sardines followed by huge portions of... More

Great atmosphere, very clean and good service. Minerva is located in the port of Mahon. Apart from a traditional local, across the street it has an original dining room located on the sea, next to a boat where does the cooking. For 15 euros plus VAT you can enjoy a menu of two courses plus dessert

We went for the set special at 25 euro each. This was a 5 course special, but with an added free "taster" to start whilst we awaited our first course. The dishes went from cheese in breadcrumbs to Tunny Fish, Mushroom Rissoto and Suckling lamb and ended with a chefs dessert of various fresh fruits covered in a sort of... More
