“Great local dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

My husband & I went to the La Guitarra to sample some typical Menorcan food. I had a duck dish and my fhusband went for a chicken and meatball dish. Both were delicious. We also had a dessert each - my husband opted for the Menorcan biscuits with coffee and I had a tortada. (almond sponge cake with icecream)

It was a quaint cellar restaurant not far from the Cathedral, so take care when entering down the stairs to avoid knocking your head.

Well worth visiting, especially if you wish to sample something different to the typical seafood dishes prevalent in the harbour (they also do seafood in La Guitarra too!)

“Good food and relaxed atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

We ate here 3 times during our 10-day stay; this was the only restaurant we came back to. The food was really good, with interesting local dishes. The restaurant was also small and friendly with a relaxed atmosphere. We all felt comfortable eating here, whereas some of the other recommended restaurants looked a bit formal and stuffy for us and our teenage children. The waiters were really nice without being intrusive. The tapas were good, as was the Escaldums (tasty broth with chicken thighs and small meatballs); the black rice with squid (and ink) and prawns was fantastic. Also really good steaks. The almond cake with hazelnut ice-cream was very good too. We didn't have anything that was at all disappointing.

“Delicious authentic Menorcan food with great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2011 via mobile

On a recent visit to Cuitadella we wanted a restaurant serving traditional Merorcan dishes and were recommended this place by a local shop owner. It's hidden in a backstreet of cuitadella and we were delighted with the friendly service, the impressive menu using lots of local food and the small intimate cellar rooms. Try the mussles with aioli dip, the roast lamb and the lobster paella. Many locals eat here and the menu of the day is only €15 for 3 courses.
