Ate their several times during our stay in Playa De Fornells, had the best meals there every time, even on our last night in Menorca, it was the restaurants last night also. They closed for the winter. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff, who all spoke good English. Would definitely recommend it to all, and will definitely be... More

Best place on the island for a romantic dinner. Charming service and amazing food. Highly recommend the suckling pig. Cafe del Nord is the place!

Couldn't have made a better impression of menorca on our first night. Delicious food, nice outside area and staff who go above and beyond to make sure that you have a nice evening.

Ten days in Menorca, best meal by far. Outstanding reception and welcome by our waiter (Manager I think) who took time to explain the menu and helped us choose wines. I had the scorpion fish, which he explained which wine (yes a budget one) would suit the dish. It was absolutely delicious. We both found ourselves the last to leave... More

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
