“Did not disappoint”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Went on Tripadvisor before visiting Cala'n Bosch in September 2012 and after reading reviews for the restaurants chose Es Tast de na Silvia for our first (and subsequent) evening meal. We were not disappointed with our choice, we chose the set menu and the food was delicious, well presented and excellent value for money. Tony (the owner,waiter and husband of Silvia who does all the cooking) is very proud of their restaurant and rightly so, there is no need for him to stand outside handing out leaflets trying to draw you in, his reputation for an excellent eatery is well known on the marina, if the locals eat there it tells you something and they do regularly. Out of fourteen evenings we ate there twelve times, on his Wednesday nights off we ate at two other restaurants on the Marina - no contest!! Will certainly return on our next visit to Cala'n Bosch.

“An unusual menu but an average experience”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We tried the set menu as based on reviews seemed worth a try. The gratinated scallop starter was simply one scallop chopped -sacrilege! with filling and grilled. The fish soup starter was fine. I had lamb chops which were ok and my wife a fish course. My dessert was described as a creme brulee but turned out to be a milky concoction with no caramelized topping, most weird though tasted reasonable.Clearly a two person operation one in kitchen one out front. It was not overly busy and little atmosphere but waiter apologised a number of times for poor service which was not necessary as we were in no rush. Over all just an average experience and from menu in no rush to go back.n

“Peaceful, quality experience!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Visited the restaurant on two occassions end of sept into oct 2012, group of 4. So relaxing, classical music playing in the background, comfortable chairs and calm, pleasant service. Didn't feel pressurised to eat there, as some of the other eateries have people outside trying to entice you in. Personally, they put us off!! The three course meal had a good and varied choice and was of very good quality. I am not normally a fish eater, but I tried the stuffed Sole as a main and it was absolutely delicious. The whole experience was a pleasure, we were all very satisfied with the food and service.

“One of the best”
Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Ate here during our recent trip to Menorca in Sept 2012.

We had the menu of the day which was excellent value- three courses for €15.50.

The food was of a very high standard and the waiter was very accommodating, he even offered my partner pasta instead of potatoes as he doesn't eat them.

We had the goats cheese and scallops for starters which were both delicious. The scallop dish was a bit on small side though. For main course we had the salmon pasta and a steak dish which were both very tasty and good sized. For desserts we had vanilla ice-cream and profiteroles. Not outstanding but both nice.

Would definitely recommended this restaurant. Good value for money and food is very nice. The only negatives are small portion sizes for starters and being left too long without any drink.

Cala n bosch's answer to fine dining for sure!
