Great food

Food was excellent and service good. Nice spot to watch the world go by. Nice mix of tourists and locals. Staff were very friendly and helpful and made excellent suggestions when one of the dishes on the menu had sold out. Would recommend a visit.

Estupendo! Three of us with very varying tastes had two excellent meals. I'm not a paella lover but the choice for my friends was really wide. I had fillet steak on both occasions and they were both perfect for me. Delightful and efficient staff and really clean and relaxing ambience. Great vista of town centre and people watching if that's... More

My daughter recommended this restaurant to us (she had recently been to this resort on holiday). In particular to order the paella. We did so and I must say it was very tasty but a little short on the fish. We had a mixed dish (ie meat and fish). Dished out by the waiter we received 3 mussels each and... More

This restaurant has a prime location for watching the world go by. They are a bit pedantic about opening times and table allocation. The food was tasty and service efficient. We all enjoyed our fish dishes and the paella looked appetising.

The terrace at El Pulpo is set above the street and faces west, nice for watching the world go by as the sun goes down. The food is good and the staff are friendly and efficient.

It is one of the best restaurants available in Cala en porter and I recommend trying their menu. El pulpo specialises in fish and seafood however they also have dishes with menorcan lamb or pork (two most popular meats of Menorca). They are serving generous portions and have friendly staff. I am definitely going back there next summer!

Love the paella at this place and also good steaks. All 5 of us enjoyed our meals once again as in previous years. A little on the more pricey side but good ambience and service. Will be back next year.
