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.
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.
A sympathetically converted and classically styled old townhouse just off the Placa d’es Born in Ciutadella, Ca’n Bep specialises in traditional Menorcan cuisine with an emphasis on fish and shellfish.

With a selection of homemade desserts to finish, the menu is well priced at €14.95 which considering the high quality cooking represents excellent value for money. Drinks are not included.
