We had this restaurant recommended to us whilst dining elsewhere by another diner. What a good recommendation it turned out to be. We went there twice out of the last three nights of our holiday. Ok it does not have the harbour side location but we ate at Bar Espana and then wandered down to the harbour for a drink... More

Best meal overall we had. Plenty of choice on the fixed price menu, a bargain at E18.50 for 3 courses and inc a bottle of wine between two. Decent size portions, lovely food and wine. Plenty of staff too. No wonder it is always busy. Suggest you book.

The restaurant is in the middle of Es Castell just near the Spar supermarket, so no harbour view. It has no outside seating but is air conditioned. The restaurant is typically Spanish with mainly formal square tables but has proper linen cloths and napkins. The service is very good and the food well prepared. So what does it lack -... More

As it was number one we had to give it a go. It is on a side street but easy to find. Once inside it's rather like a old style Italian with poor decor. The food menu is not great and to be honest it is just good cheap food. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it but it was... More

Bar Espana is down a side street in Es Castell, Menorca. Although its location is fine it does not have a harbour or sea view. However what it lacks in views it makes up for in food, service and more. We ate at this restaurant in September 2013 with another couple who were celebrating a birthday. The food was excellent,...

Lots of choice of restaurants in Es Castell but after much research this was a firm favourite. Visited for dinner on three occasions and very impressed every time. Good quality, well cooked food presented in a smart, pleasant environment by friendly, efficient staff. This place really is well organised and impressive to observe such a well oiled machine in action.... More

Been to Es Castell many times and always ate down by cala fonts which admittedly has a lovely view but found the meals were getting pricier for what they were. This is excellent value, may need to book as very popular with the locals which is always a good sign. You can go see the view later or pre dinner... More

Delightful staff, good local food, excellent value, particularly the set lunch/dinner menus and an atmosphere of 'Menorcan' nightlife in a restaurant of uncomplicated appeal!

We first when to Bar Espana in the early 1980s and although we do try other places, no where can compete with the quality of the food or the value. That said it is the staff who make it great by giving a genuinely helpful and friendly service. Although inside the A/C works well and the people watching is fun,... More

We first discovered Bar Espana thirty years ago and have been coming back regularly ever since because it's just very good quality and value. I nearly always choose the same three dishes for starter, main and pudding because of their consistent excellence - Mussels Mariniere, Gambas a la Plancha (Grilled Prawns) and Soufflé. Don't visit the East side of the... More
