Restaurant Sa Llagosta


Sa Llagosta is the second and last Menorcan restaurant on the Opinionated About Dining (OAD) list, 160th position. High quality cuisine, with attention to the smallest detail. The restaurant where every dish has no 'buts' and where local gastronomy is the main protagonist.

The first time we tried it was because Víctor Lidón told us that for him it is the best restaurant in Menorca.. And this is saying a lot, as Victor is the owner and chef of another fantastic restaurant (Ca Na PilarHe is a former member of the highly acclaimed ABaC restaurant in Barcelona (2 Michelin stars) and the Racó de Can Fabes, of the renowned Santi Santamaria (3 stars). And the proposal does not disappoint: their treatment of fish, seafood and lobster stew is simply a delight for the senses..

Restaurant Es Cranc


Es Cranc is one of the best places to eat caldereta de langosta (lobster stew)Is yours better or Sa Llagosta's? It's like choosing between father and mother: difficult.

A simple establishment with the essence of Menorca.The event has been attended by all kinds of personalities, from King Juan Carlos I, Pau Gasol, Lewis Hamilton...

Not to mention the fish of the day and the lobster with fried egg, also a traditional dish of the island.

Restaurant Alcaufar Vell


Discover Alcaufar Vell is one of the most beautiful moments you will experience in Menorca outside the natural environment. Because this rural hotel it's not that it's beautiful, it's that it's straight out of a fairy tale.. The building, an old 18th century manor house, is a journey into the island's past, but with all the comfort and spectacularity of the 21st century. The restaurant is located in the Ullastres Garden (Garden of wild olive trees), a magical, intimate and, one might almost say, confidential place..

The food is no slouch, and lives up to the context. The Menú de l'Amo (Owner's Menu), very complete, costs 43,50€, but only if you start dinner before 9.30pm. Otherwise, there's the à la carte menu, with a very good selection of cheeses, salads, fish and meat. Please note: reservations cannot be accepted after 22h.. It has private parking.

El Grill Restaurant

Photo: El Grill Restaurant

A restaurant next to the airport with the beautiful places that exist in Menorca? Yes, because on an island where fish and seafood are obviously predominant, finding a restaurant next to the airport is a paradise for carnivores is sensational. Its terrace is an oasis just a few metres from the terminal and with a smell of embers that will make you hungry all of a sudden. The sirloin steak or the beef cutlet, as well as the grilled vegetables, are a spectacle. So we can say that this is one of the best steakhouses in Menorca.

By the way, if you are meat lovers you also have another very good restaurant 5 minutes drive from El Grill, Ca'n Bernat (Maó - Cala en Porter road, km 8). Both are two old Menorcan houses completely restored and have private parking.

No website or social networks

Average price: €40

Ses Forquilles


One of the best restaurants in Menorca, one of the best restaurants of all times, is renewed and changes its premises. A beautiful and luminous space, with a charming inner courtyard.. It is located in the town centre of Mahón, which is also connected to the Hotel Boutique Christine Bedfor.

Their dishes are excellent, with a variety of exquisite dishes to shareThe quantities are correct, allowing us to keep the budget between 35-40€ per person. We would highlight the quality of the product, its preparation and the friendly service of the staff. Its cuisine is international, rooted in the sea and the land, with seasonal and, whenever possible, local produce..

If you like to enjoy food, Ses Forquilles is a restaurant that, despite not having a view of the sea or the countryside, is one of the best urban restaurants that never disappoints.

A little trickThe wild sea bass in pil pil sauce is exquisite and the price per person is around 26€, but you can order for one and eat almost three. And the half portion of suckling pig is plentiful ;-).

Parking in the centre of Mahón is not easy, but you have the Es Fraginal car park, which is open air and costs only 0.2€ per hour, and is a 5-minute walk away, or the Plaça Miranda car park, which is more difficult to access but is just 2 minutes from the restaurant.

Average price: €40

▶️ Calle San Fernando, 12, 07702 Mahón / 971353260


Bread and Wine Restaurant


In a typical Menorcan house we find this romantic proposal that will remain engraved on your retina. The interior of Bread and Wine looks like a miniature, but the exterior has two generous terraces to savour his creations. Its chef, Patrick, designs an annual tasting menu dedicated to an area of his native France, while at the same time, a Mediterranean menu that changes four times a year. We have always liked the Mediterranean, but it is an added bonus to find the possibility of exploring corners of the neighbouring country through its flavours, something that the increasingly abundant high-level French tourists appreciate. It has private parking.

Average price: €55

▶️ Camí Coixa, 3, 07711 Sant Lluís / 971150201
