Upon arrival we had to wait. But we expected this as it was peak time and a popular restaurant. When seated, even though it was busy, the waiter looked after us very well, we explained we like to share our food and he was welcoming of this fact and served the food as such. He advised of us some dishes... More

We visited Paco's at least four times during our stay in Menorca and once for coffee in the morning so we could use his wifi! Every dinner was great, Paco took the time to explain any dishes we didn't know and told ushow the recommended dishes tasted. I cannot fault the place - every dish was great, the wine was... More

We have been coming regularly to the island of Menorca for 25 years and visited this restaurant frequently. Last night we went again and had as a starter the garlic prawns..........absolutely superb! They are without doubt the best we have tasted on the island. In fact .....they are the best we have had anywhere we have visited! Paco, the owner... More

We regularly visit Cafe del Nord and are always warmly welcomed. The atmosphere and position is hard to beat but sometimes the food can be a bit of a let down for the price. This year was a bit better than last year with my partner declaring the suckling pig 'delicious '. My pork was a bit overdone. Puddings are... More

I went with my wife because the reviews were very positive. When we arrived they asked if we had a reservation, for being off-season, a good sign. So that's directely the first tip I want to give: MAKE A RESERVATION! so, we had non, but still could the staff arrange us a table. We had the black paella. It looks... More

We stayed at Carema Aldea Playa and having visited the main 4 restaurants in walking distance this is by far the best authentic cuisine. All the others cater for for the burger/pizza crowd! The set menu is €15 for 3 courses and was great value. The paella is lovely, the service attentive and it has an extensive wine menu. For... More

We have eaten here every trip and love the good food, great service and fantastic view. Paco and his team make everyone feel welcome and the wines are excellent. We will be back again next year!

We really enjoyed our visit here. We arrived at 6:45pm and were told they didn't open until 7pm but we were more than welcome to have drinks while we waited. We sat outside and had a fabulous view over the bay. Two of us ate from the menu of the day which was €15-16 for 3 courses which was great... More

We stayed at Carema hotel for two weeks, which had limited choice for food. We decided to go for a walk up the hill to a small group of restaurants and found a lovely restaurant called Es cactus. We walked up one day to find that it was closed for the evening. instead, we tried cafe del Nord. We should... More

we were going there couple of times last and this year. The stuff are very friendly, they remember their customers, and when you do not know what to eat they will give you a good proposition. The house wine is just fine, so you do not have to search for others. They make the best garlic bread ever. And I... More
