We eventually found this restaurant it really is virtually in the airport ! Drive around the car parks and out the other side to get to the car park. There were only a few of us in for lunch just after new year and it was very quiet like all of Menorca. We were fussed over and food was tasty but straightforward. Quite pricey though. Bet it is really atmospheric in the evening during the summer though and you don't really notice the airport being so close.

This restaurant at the edge of the airport is terrific for its general atmosphere. There is plenty of space between the tables which we like. The food is good with plenty of fresh meat. Everything is very reasonably priced. We a bottle of Gran Caus rosé for which they charged €18.00. We had been charged up to €25.00 for the same bottle of wine in other restaurants. After midnight they usually have a live band perform in the restaurant and many people arrive simply for the music and drinks. Certainly a venue not to be missed on a visit to Menorca. Not what you would expect at the edge of an airport!

An 'unlikely' location for a nice restaurant really...you have to drive into the Mahon airport & enter the restaurant upon leaving the airport road.
That said, I have dined here many times and must say it has become rather a favourite.
Dining is provided both inside the traditional farmhouse building and also in the extensive exterior covered area, which now includes an external bar, open on weekends during the peak summer months. There may also be live music on saturday evenings, albeit not until late. A great place to meet friends!
The food is always reasonable, with quite a selection to choose from. Diners are encouraged to view the fresh meats on offer from the meat cabinet before deciding...
Them eat is cooked in a charcoal fired grill and the smells are delightful. Needless to say, this is primarily a meat restaurant.
The grilled BBQ asparagus with freshly ground salt makes an excellent starter...
The house wines are good and not too expensive.
The owner is very hospitable and bears a remarkable resemblance to Billy Connolly!
A great lively Restaurant to dine with friends...never that busy before 9pm though, very Spanish!
Not the cheapest place to eat, but for something a little different, and excellent meats, well worth a visit!!

Dined here on several occasions. On the whole I think the best way to describe dining here is an experience and one worth having. The food and service good but the sneaky waiter screwed us on the wine the last time we visted so my advise is to stick to the house wine and do not be persuaded away from it. That said I would visit again and recommend the lamb chops. We always come away having had a great evening but with empty pockets.

We stopped for a drink whilst waiting to pick up friends from the airport, liked the look of the menu and booked for 6 of us to eat that evening. The food was fresh and fabulous, steaks, lamb and fish, none of us could fault with the food. Not a cheap evening, but take a look in the meat cabinet! The service was great, the staff happy and helpful and has free Wi-Fi. I wondered if it would be that good being so close to the airport but we couldn't hear any airport noise and when some Spanish air-crew came in to eat, obviously frequent diners there, I realised that must be a good recommendation. Lovely place and very quaint. Thoroughly enjoyable.
