MARCHING ON TOGETHER
Stratford-upon-Avon, UK53 contributions
Until this year, we had generally walked past this historc fish market after midday when it was closed. The fresh fish market still trades most days from early morning to about midday, but since our last visit to Menorca in 2019, it has been transformed.

A section of the market has been converted into a series of small businesses producing a very large selection of Tapas and similar varieties of tasty bites of food from fish, meat, vegetarain, savoury and sweet desserts. In addition, there are two or three businesses in the same complex offering all manner of drinks.

With tables available inside or outside as well as on the street just outside the Fish Market entrance, it was the liveliest venue for this style of eating and drining in the main part of the city above the Port.

As we were sampling this venue for the very first time in September 2022, we do not know how long it has been operating, but comparing to when we were last in Mahon 3 years ago, it is clear that this establishment is thriving and possibly at the expenses of many of the existing Tapas and Snack Bars in the shopping area - many of them were empty so it is debatable whether this new enterprise has captured a lot of the available trade.

It is defintely not to be missed, a huge variety of food at verty reasonable cost.

Just made for tourists but there seems to be many Spanish speaking people eating here. Not great value for money but if you are visiting Mahon then you must come here to see and try some of the many varied dishes on display with a glass of wine or a small beer. This is a no hassle zone and all of the servers are friendly and able to speak some English.

What a chaotic experience. This place is so busy and it is off peak at the moment here in Menorca. However, there was a cruise ship in the harbour so that possibly contributed to the chaos. Beautiful place to visit, so much food on display, something for everyone and for those of you who want to cook plenty of fresh fish for sale.
Would highly recommend a visit and don't be put off by the staff, they are rushed off there feet most of the time so have little time to fuss over every customer.

Interesting place with a wide selection of local food and drink. Rather disappointingly though, the staff seemed to be disinterested in the job they were paid to do and intent on taking their frustrations out on customers through micro-aggressions. Sadly, this isn’t the only time on this trip to Menorca that we have been made to feel uncomfortable by front of house staff who “just aren’t into it”. We have found the owner-managed businesses to be generally so much better.

Internally there are several tapas points serving different foods, one dedicated to meat, one to pinchos, one to fish, so a lot of choice. Everything is pre-cooked and heated up (if needed), but we appreciated the wide choice, general quality and good wine.
Perhaps not the best food but definitely we spent a funny night.

Yes, it is a little bit of a tourist trap but worth visiting as, whilst a bit pricey, the majority of the food was delicious and it was an experience soaking up the atmosphere. Just be careful of any tapas that are not clearly priced and be sure to clarify what you are getting for your money as we had a nasty shock with one of the over-priced 'side dishes' which also happened to be the worst of the dishes taste-wise as well. Bonus points though for reasonably priced and delicious wines.

A mixture of fish market and food court with a mouthwatering plethora of foods to choose from to suit every taste. Very busy around lunchtime and finding a seat may be difficult but it's really worth persevering to enjoy a lovely spot like this. Seeing is believing.

My family and I loved visiting the fish market in Mahon last week. Our 3 children were fascinated by all the fresh fish and seafood on sale, and we all feasted on the huge selection of tapas next door which we enjoyed in the sunny courtyard. A must-do in Mahon.

Just make sure you get a receipt! We ordered food, paid and were given a buzzer to let us know when it was ready. When we collected, all our order was not there. The girl behind the counter told us we had not paid for the missing items. We had no proof as no receipt had been given. Lesson learnt, ask for a receipt. I feel they might take advantage of tourists. There are many other places to get better tapas without getting ripped off.

This place has a nice atmosphere & some great looking Tapas, however it is a bit of a tourist trap. The chiperones that i had looked good but were pre cooked & i have tasted a lot better. The choice of food here is amazing, i just chose wrong. However the white wine was delicious & the experience very pleasant.
