Ciutadella: Menorca's gastronomic stronghold
Caldereta de langosta (lobster stew), sepia al horno (baked cuttlefish), tasty and varied rice dishes, red prawns, cheese... Cuidadela is a culinary paradise and Menorca's gastronomic stronghold along with Mahón. Its tradition, culture and fine dining have made Menorca's old capital the perfect destination for lovers of good taste.
This beautiful port city's excellent location, its archaeological heritage and its well-maintained medieval heart invite visitors to immerse themselves in another age and to travel through time and flavours.
Among its narrow streets, dozens of restaurants open their doors to travellers and allow the delicious smell of authentic Menorcan cuisine to escape: seafood and fish recently brought from the port, fresh vegetables, traditional meats and succulent home-made puddings. The perfect menu for discovering the 'real' Ciudadela.
Ciudadela's culinary heritage is best seen in the caldereta de langosta (lobster stew), a dish based on a Mediterranean lobster stock, onion, garlic, parsley, green and red pepper, fried bread and salted almonds.
Ciudadela – and Menorca in general – is known for the taste of its rice dishes, which combine all sorts of ingredients and produce from both the sea and the earth.
