Average food but expensive

This was the most expensive meal we had in cala en porter yet not the best quality. They forgot some of our order, the cocktails didn't seem to have any alcohol in them, the pizzas were just a lake of cheese and the portions were small. A bit disappointing as it looks lovely from the road.

Visited on our first night drawn in by the lure of the entertainment. Clearly popular but our choices were uninspiring. We both had pizzas as nothing else caught our eye tho the menu is varied. I think that was more about us being tired from our journey. My pizza was average, base was tough and a little burnt. My partner... More

Eat here twice during our holiday. We have three little children and at first the main attraction was the little play park they have at far end of the establishment. After finsing something to keep the kids occupied we settled down to our meal and got to say it was superb. I had Fillet Steak, which was fresh, well cooked... More

We visited last night and had a nice meal. The restaurant is reached by going down steps from the main road and looked appealing, which encouraged us to try it. I had the mushroom ravioli and garlic bread. It was nice but I wouldn't say wow! My husband had the filet steak which he said was really nice. My daughter... More

Sea bass menorcan style was a highlight. And if you order the mussels you get a huge portion. Staff are friendly. There was a strange show that included an Indian lady dancing. Although very talented it didn't quite fit with the setting. There was Indian music blasting out whilst mixing with the local karaoke bar music.

I had a great tuna salad here and my partner had the Menorcan fish, although it was filletted and not like the other Menorcan fish dishes we had, it was still nice. The service was prompt
