“Excellent set menu”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We ate two evening meals here, both from the set menu of the day, and found the food and the value for money to be excellent. The choice was varied with a different menu each time, portions were of a good size and we were able to try some typical Menorcan dishes including suckling pig and red scorpion fish. The view over the harbour was also lovely.

“Great food, shame about the waiter”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This restaurant has lots of advantages in that it has a stylish, modern interior but also a great terrace. The food is always good and the menu del dia varied and good value. Unfortunately the waiter (owner?) has an abrupt manner, maybe because his English isn't brilliant. One day we waited to be seated but he was nowhere in sight and we sat down on a table on the terrace. When he eventually arrived he told us to 'wait next time before sitting down' in an unfriendly manner. Shame because everything else about this restaurant is very good.

“Very good value and lovely food”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We found this restaurant to be very good value for money. Right up at the top of the harbour of Es Castell with lovely views they serve lovely food. Would particularly recommend the menu del dia - 3 courses with bread, water & wine included for approx 18 euros per head. Only 1 criticism though - didn't find the staff particularly pleasant - in fact some were quite miserable. Sorry but that's an honest opinion. Wouldn't let it stop me going again though - maybe they were just having a bad day!

“One of the best restaurants on the island.”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Great views, great service and a menu of the day that is changed regularly and offers great value. Visited Sebastian and his team twice on this visit to Menorca and they continued to deliver each time. The food is local and good quality and I cannot recommend the daily menu for £18 (including drink) enough.
