This traditional restaurant in the quaint little fishing village of Na Macaret is what relaxed dining with friends and family is all about in Menorca. Set just behind the beach, Acuario has been run with passion and flair for the past 14 years by experienced chef and restaurateur Max and his wife Marta who understand exactly how to make their customers feel welcome.
This waterside restaurant, which was previously next door, has relocated this year to bigger premises with a superb outdoor terrace dining area, a reflection of its popularity with locals and visitors to Ciutadella. Now reopened as 5 Pórtes, named after its five door frontage, this completely renovated building is still the perfect venue to enjoy freshly prepared chargrilled meat and fish with lovely views over Ciutadella's picturesque harbour.
There is something not just iconic but also romantic about the 300 year old converted windmill restaurant in Es Mercadal which has become one of Menorca’s most famous landmarks on the main road between Maó and Ciutadella. Having seen several changes of ownership since this restored windmill first opened as a restaurant 27 years ago, Moli d’es Raco (literally, windmill on the corner) is now run with passion by brothers Juan and Jaime who took over the premises four years ago.
The restaurant has always specialised in authentic Menorcan cuisine where the emphasis is on the freshest local ingredients, readily available from the fertile agricultural land surrounding Es Mercadal. In fact, Moli d’es Raco, goes one stage further having its own farmland which produces vegetables as well as lamb, pork and beef.
Ca N’Aguedet has a unique style and elegance that sets it apart from other restaurants in Menorca, the reason no doubt lying in the fact that it is Menorca’s oldest restaurant still in operation. Originally founded by in 1936, it was then run by Agueda Vadell Pons and her husband Miguel Mariano for many years during which time it built up an enviable reputation for producing some of Menorca’s finest cooking.
Continuing as a family run restaurant, the day to day management has since passed onto their children who have inherited the same passion to deliver high quality, traditional Menorcan cuisine for new generations to enjoy. However, far from retiring, at 88 Agueda still keeps a sharp eye on what’s going on and can often be seen in the restaurant making sure everything is in order and the guests are happy. Today, front of house is son Crispin with his brother Miguel Mariano and sister in law Margarita Fullana as head chef and pastry chef respectively.
The clue is in the name and El Pescador or 'The Fisherman' delivers on fresh fish every time and much more besides, making it a great restaurant choice for all the family.
Located on the waterfront with great views over Fornells harbour, the restaurant’s large glass frontage opens up to create an outside covered terrace dining area, with heaters for cooler days in spring and autumn. Inside, the restaurant is bright and airy and the atmosphere is buzzing, which is hardly surprising when you consider the quality of the food and excellent value for money.
Occupying a superb position overlooking the pretty cove and white sandy beach of Cala Blanca, Restaurant Cala Blanca aims to go one step further in offering customers a high quality and relaxed dining experience.
Restaurant Cala Blanca has been family run since the mid 1990s by Lorenzo Alvarez and his wife Maria Jose, assisted by their daughter Raquel. With many years experience in the industry, they understand that well prepared food requires the freshest of raw ingredients attentively served in a professional, yet friendly atmosphere, allowing you to relax and take time out to enjoy the company of friends, family or colleagues.
