Fornells, an ancient fishing village set in a natural harbour, has been made famous for its seafood restaurants, featuring the local speciality of 'caldereta de llangosta' (lobster stew). It's reported that King Juan Carlos of Spain visits every year to sample this culinary delight.
Elsewhere around the island you can find typical Spanish restaurants, serving tapas and other traditional Spanish meals. Menorcan island cooking relies heavily on seafood and it is common to see a wide variety of fish dishes on the menu. Other tastes are catered for extremely well and most restaurants offer a wide choice of chicken, beef, pork dishes (steak, kebabs, escalopes, etc.) together with pizza and pasta choices.
Most restaurants are child friendly, offering children's menus, featuring the most common favourites (nuggets, fish fingers, burgers, sausage, pizza and spaghetti bolognese). The Binibeca area offers plenty of choice for those visiting the south-eastern end of the island.

For those less keen on Spanish cooking, Cala'n Porter has a number of English-run bars and restaurants. The island now even has an Indian restaurant on the outskirts of Mahon and there are a small number of Chinese restaurants.
Listed below are a number of restaurants and their contact numbers. Reserving a table in the peak summer months is to be advised. We are not endorsing these restaurants, their details are merely to advise where you can eat and the types of food on offer. We have however eaten in many of them!

Compostela - Son Bou - 971 372 741
Open from 9am in summer months, including breakfast. A rare find as I have been going to Son Bou for years and have never eaten in here until this year. Very impressed with the menu and choices, especially when the evening menu is offered after 7pm. The fillet steak is the best I have eaten in Menorca! The fish dishes are excellent and the lamb in red wine melts in the mouth. The restaurant is spotlessly clean as are the wash rooms, the service is excellent and Andreas the owner and Carlos the head waiter are efficient beyond belief. There is something to suit every pocket - lunch time specials, breakfast offers including full English breakfast or American pancakes. Food is reasonably priced compared with their competitors. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
