Just a few meters away from the "Iglesia Del Rosel" in the center of Ciutadela this place is an old basement well preserved with a nice staff and a great cuisine. They have fresh fish and nice starters. The meat was also a great choice. I was looking for a nice place to eat, away from the tourist movement. Perfect... More

We've been to El Horno restaurant during our vacation in Menorca. The place is hidden in the historical centre of Ciutadela. We asked for a table and they said we had to wait for two minutes. After 15 minutes and no answer back, I kindly asked how long should we have to wait. The answer was "un ratito" - a... More

We have been told that this restaurant was a good one and not turistic at all. I now understand why it is not turistic. The food was way too salty, and far too much expensive for what it was... I personally was hungry when I came out of this "restaurant". Also, the power of the air conditionner was too high.... More

There is such a choice of restaurants in this city that once again we just looked in thought the window of El Horno one evening and took a chance. We weren't disappointed.

We looked this restaurant up on the Michelin guide... We have no idea why it is recommended. It is not very good, it has very limited menu choice and food is very basic, most certainly not fine dining. Good luck if you decide to dine here, but unfortunately we wont be back, especially with so many top class restaurants in... More

Thank you for your review. We're sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. Although I would like to point out that our menu is far from limited (it offers more than 10 starters, and 10 meals), but during the Fiestas de Sant Joan, considering the number of customers and the peak of activity we reduce our menu for practical reasons....

On a half day visit to the town and keen to avoid the open air caffs, we went down a side street near the cathedral, and took a chance by going through the rather plain entrance. We only wanted a simple lunch and were well pleased with our experience. Attentive friendly service, a delicious amuse bouche and fresh baguette chunks... More

Tucked away in a back street within the network maze of Ciutadella was this fine restaurant. At first my wife and I were apprehensive on entering as this establishment was completely empty..usually a bad sign. How completely wrong we were. After being seated we were treated to a complimentary appetizer...a very nice touch. I chose the pork for main course... More

We'd seen reviews and were keen to find something a bit different, so we sought out elements horno. The waiter was surly, and didn't crack a smile once. He was slow and quite frankly somewhat arrogant. I had the salmon, that was slightly overcooked, however the sauce, with prawns & mussels was really tasty. My husband's chicken al a creme... More

Description
The restaurant El Horno welcomes you every evening in a cosy setting, two steps away from the port, to enjoy a traditional Mediterranean cuisine. It offers home-made dishes with seasonal products, thanks to its exclusive collaboration with a local fishing boat. Ideally located in a quiet street of the historic centre of Ciutadella, it will offer you a tasty break slightly back from the animation of the city. A family history since 1978! In July and August, reservations are recommended (until 9:30 PM, only by phone).
