“Great place for either a lunch or dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We first had lunch at a set price, the three course meal with a bottle of wine and water was tremendous and delicious forjustb15 euros. On the strength of the lunch we booked a evening meal and I have got to say the experience was memorable, we really enjoyed every bite. Apart from the food, there is a wide choice it suit every palate the decor and ambiance is excellence.

“Classiest meal on Menorca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

On recommendation of my brother in law and his wife who ate here a week ago we tried out the bistro last night. We booked ahead as it was Friday and that was a good move as it was pretty well full and when 18 Menorquians arrived for a group meal it was packed. The meal was of the highest order, probably the best I have had in the 25 years of visiting the island, there are other good places here but this was different from the usual fare.
We both had starters, Tuna carpaccio, Cerviche of seafood with plantain "chips", then baked cod with a pesto crust, and monkfish with a green sauce. We also managed a dessert each as the portions were not too big, we had a bottle of the house rose which the waiter recommended and some bottled water, all of this came to 92E, but we did have some of the more expensive items on the menu.
You will have to be patient as the food comes out at a leisurely pace, but this more to do with the food being prepared for you, we were warned by the chef/owner when we booked about this, he advised us to arrive a little later than we wanted as there were 2 tables of 5 booked in at 8pm, therefore 8.30 would be better as he would be attending to them.
The staff were really cheery and helpful in explaining the menu, and totally un fazed when the large party arrive at 9.45 especially as the place is quite small. The restaurant is well laid out in a beautifully restored old house.
Parking can be problem so leave your car and walk in...nothing is far away here.
There menu is small with options for fish, meat and vegetarians.
The lunch menu 15E is also recommended .

“Best restaurant we have found on menorca a jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

While on a four day working break in menorca where we have a property, we went out for dinner one evening and stumbled on this restaurant.
It was a jewel to be found. Firstly the decor was stunning the service from the chef David was
Very attentive. He translated the menu for us as it was all in Spanish which was great.
We had two starters between us to share one being a goats cheese dish which was delicious,
The other was carpaccio which was lovely. Then we followed with the sirloin steak with a crust on with gnocchi stuffed with porcini mushrooms and a red wine sauce, and a spinach risotto. I have to say that this was one of the best meals I have ever tasted and we have eaten all over the world.
The staff, restaurant,and food was fantastic.
