“At last, decent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Having got a bit bored with the Hotel food ,we wandered down to check out the local bars and were quite taken with the menu at Irenes, especially the 'Menu of The Day'
My deep fried King Prawns arrived with heads on but otherwise peeled and were really crispy and very tasty whilst my wife loved her avocado salad .
This was followed by roast lamb done 2 ways for her and was to die for whilst I ordered the John Dory fish dish cooked to perfection and as this was washed down by a bottle of house wine accompanied by some excellent bread ,I thought the cost per head of 18 euros represented really good value .
as Arnie said 'I'll be back.

“Lunch time wonder”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Had a three course lunch from the set menu and was amazed by the quantity and quality of the food. When our starters were brought out the they could have quite easily been mistaken for mains. The food is all fresh and flavourful with a lovely view of one of the many bays of es castell.
The seafood available here is delicious and so much better than we get back home. Would definitely com again if we were staying longer.

“Best meal in Menorca”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Delicious meals and very generous portions - if not a bit too generous. We were full after the bread and starter. There were no vegetarian options on the €12.50 menu but they made a veg spaghetti for my friend's mum. We had the ratatouille with goats cheese, meat stuffed pasta and sausage with broad beans for starter then sea bass, pork, rabbit and pasta for main. All courses were delicious and the wine that comes with the deal was a lot better than on previous menu del dias. Highly recommended. Agree about the not very accommodating waiter but don't let that get in the way of seriously good food

“Menorcan food at it's best !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

We could not fault the lovely food we had the pleasure of eating on our recent holiday in Menorca.The menu del dia offers excellent value for money, so much so, we ate there 5 times over the week.
The menu changes daily and offers both meat and fish dishes which are all cooked perfectly, and the portion sizes are quite generous.
The service was quick and efficient, a definite improvement from last year !
