Beautiful sea views, great food and wonderful staff. We try to get there at least once while we are in Menorca. Can be difficult to get a table because they are always busy but I always see this as a good sign of quality.

The Sa Gavina was lovely! When I arrived the waiter came and was really jolly, he showed us to our table and gave us a minute to order. We ordered, Sword fish steaks, Lamb cutlets, Steak, BBQ ribs and Pizza. The food was delicious, I think the Sword fish was the best meal I had ever had! Everything was delicious!... More

Great welcome by the waiter, unfortunately the food was not of the same standard. Poor value for money. Try elsewhere, avoid, not recommended

Ate here once food was ok but nothing wow, waiter/owner is a real happy friendly bloke with brilliant banter, has good views worth a meal or two.

the maitre'd made this evening one of the funniest and relaxing of all of our stay. His infectious humour and friendly banter along with his excellent food made this particular evening feel like an evening with friends at home - his homemade Sangria was, without doubt the best I have ever tasted and believe me when I say I have...

Not great but friendly staff. Fillet steak not cooked to liking. Pepper sauce , far too creamy. Lamb casserole , hardly no meat. Sirloin steak , asked for medium but rare. Will not return and do not recommend. Ooh, advertised tapas but you have to order lots of starters for tapas and very overpriced!

Amazing owner who remembers customers names not only for your holiday, but returning from last year or years prior. Nothing too much trouble, and excellent food freshly made. Returned twice in our week!

My Wife is a Chef and so, we tend to be a bit more critical than the average family when it comes to cuisine: The produce was average for the price; not bad but not as good as we've had elsewhere. However, the staff are really friendly, attentive and go out of their way with youngsters and the view is... More

The best place in Menorca by far! The waiters are so interactive with kids keeping them happy and the food is brilliant. Prawn Cocktail and Sirloin Steak are really nice. Really nice deserts and overall a brilliant restaurant being reasonably priced
