Our restaurant recommendation
Colonial-style houses, the largest natural port in the Mediterranean, a rich cultural mix and centuries-old buildings coexist in the capital of Menorca. In addition, its streets are always full of good atmosphere and restaurants that give it a special flavor. That is why we are going to tell you about our gourmet tour in Mahón to get the most out of the city. You are going to want to make each of the stops.
The meeting point for Menorcans and tourists par excellence is the Mercat des Peix . Here the day starts very early and reaches its peak at aperitif time. The mix of those who are going to buy fish and shellfish, those who surrender to tapas and those who have gone to do both is unrepeatable. It will be almost impossible for you to have just pintxo, so it is best to find a corner in the sun, order a beer from the island and let the time pass.
For lunch we stayed with El Rais . This restaurant in Menorca is the second adventure of the creators of Ses Forquilles , the other infallible bet of Mahón. It specializes in rice and has views of the city harbor for which it is worth booking. Although rice is the main ingredient, do not think that you are only going to see it in paellas because they present it in all its versions. It is convenient to go with a lot of desire to eat because you cannot miss the Caesar salad rolled in rice paper and the prawn nigiri, two Asian nods, nor their Señoret rice.
For a coffee, head to the Jardí de Ses Bruixes hotel and discover its charming courtyard full of greenery. If you don’t like this drink, you should look for any excuse to enter because you will find the calm typical of its most lost coves in the middle of the city.
