Description: The restaurant is located in a 400 year old stone house, just off the main square, amidst a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets. The unique stone facade has been maintained and the simple subtle interior blends perfectly with the rustic style of the building. Seating around 40 with 18 inside and a candle lit terrace outside seating 22 - join us for dinner from 7.00 P.M. Onwards and choose from a menu based on simple flavours and personal taste, with an innovative twist in an unpretentious and relaxed atmosphere, all our wines are from the islan.

“Fresh quality food ...this is a must!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

The exterior of the restaurant is a little austere, and the inside is similarly spartan, but it makes for an intimate atmosphere without any unnecessary distractions.

As for the food... it is exceptional and I must say that the menu is without a doubt, the best tasting menu I’ve ever had, simply a joy. Not fussy, balanced, well timed, with complex flavours without being pretentious. Also a good selection of fine wines.
A fantastic little find! Would highly recommend.

“Superb food and ambience”
Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in Fornaluxt or 6 nights and ate here twice . We would have come here for a third time but sadly it was all booked up when we went in for the third evening. The service is excellent - both th chef and the waitress are very friendly and very attentive and made a pleasant evening. We had sea bream on our first evening and it was really tasty . I had the crab risotto and my husband had the chicken curry - both were excellent . A very enjoyable evening on both visits and I would highly recommend this restaurant to you

“Great find in Fornalutx”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Recently returned from Majorca in March (Brrr) with snow in the mountains. Found Cafe Med in the main plaza and enjoyed a wonderful evening dinner. There were 5 of us and everyone had a great meal - the owner Neil was very chatty and came out several times to make sure everything was OK. Highly recommended

“horrible!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is one of the restaurants that survive on the fact that tourists don't have the chance to come back. The food is bad, the service unfriendly, and the owner fortunately usually does not show up. If he does look out for trouble !!

“Ambience, Quality & Style”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

An absolutely superb little bistro-style restaurant just off the main square. An uncomplicated menu, a perfect range of dishes, prepared to prefection, served with excellent local compementary wines in a cosy and romantic setting, dining inside or out on the via. So good, we dined there twice. Owner & chef Neil is an ex-pat and partner Petra carries the front of house with some style. Highly recommended as is their other establishment in the village - the Italian "Callzone".
