We had two meals at this restaurant, and were impressed with the service and food both times. As it is by the sea, there is a sea breeze that keeps you comfortable in the covered outside area even on the hottest days. Both times, I had fish, and was impressed by how fresh and tastefully presented it was. The vegetables... More

We've been visiting Menorca for over 30 years, often to Son Bou. We've just spent two weeks there and ate 5 or 6 times at Compostela, each meal was excellent, choosing differently each time. The service from Andres and the staff is friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. Try the salmon, it's outstanding ! Also chateaubriand, the most tender meat... More

We only ate here once as we kind of fell in love with Casa Andres but if we were back in Son Bou (Which we hopefully will be!) I'd happily visit again. Highlights were the deep fried brie & the Meorcan beef stew which was great value at 11e & very tasty indeed. It's also worth mentioning they have a... More

This hotel serves good well presented food in an excellent ambience. The al a carte menu is a touch more expensive than the others but surprisingly their set menu is the cheapest and very good at 15 euros for a three course meal and drink. Staff are really nice

Three of us turned up here tonight at 10:30. There were still 3 other tables occupied. The restaurant itself is fairly large, the only downside was 2 giant screens with football and hockey playing! We ordered wine and beer and a mixture of pumpkin ravioli, aubergine gratin, frites, homemade croquetas and garlic bread. The food was AMAZING!! I don't think... More

We have eaten at Compostela multiple times and the food and atmosphere is always excellent. They are always very friendly and will make a special effort to make your meal more enjoyable. The food is varied, but I almost always have one of the fish dishes especially the fresh fish of the day. When dining with others who had lamb... More

My family and I have been going to Menorca on holiday for many years and first dined at the Compostela Restaurant in Son Bou soon after it opened. We have been there many times over the years and have never been disappointed. The food is invariably excellent and we always get a warm welcome. This year, a three-course meal, including... More

Compostela is a little away from the rest of the bars. Its found a couple of doors along from the Kit Cat bar which most people seem to know. We found this lovely place on our last night, but had we found it earlier in the week, we would've probably gone there every evening! The restaurant overlooks the top of... More
