Very late in the season but we were attentively served. Food and wine were lovely. Nice surroundings and outside tables have a nice view. Price is reasonable for the type of restaurant. Our best meal during our stay.

Very good food. Excellent Cava sangria. Nice and friendly. The Resturant was full by 8.30, we ate at 7.30. Locals eat here, that's school sign.

We dined here last night and the food was fabulous. The restaurant and staff were excellent and couldn't have been more helpful. Not over priced for the excellent cuisine.

This is the only restaurant we visited twice on our holiday. The food was very good, especially the seafood paella which has to be ordered in advance. The only drawback was the price. It was more expensive than what was expected.

We love coming here and it had improved from four years ago when we were last in Menorca. I had lamb chops which were delicious and my husband had pork. He said he'd never tasted anything so delicious. Please come here if you get the chance.
