Tapas from Ciutadella
If you add to the historical beauty of Ciutadella its exquisite gastronomy, you will never want to leave the natural paradise that is Menorca. Yes, assume it: that's the way it is and many have happened to us. The island charms for many reasons and one of them is precisely the culinary one, so much so that out of the Balearics this is the island that takes all the medals if we talk about cookery excellence.
The quality of its restaurants can vary, of that there is no doubt, but the vast majority are much more than just decent and they tend to use local produce with great care giving clear priority to the most traditional specialties that are the essence of Menorca.
A good caldereta (stew), serrano ham tapas, butifarrón (sausage), sobrasada (pasties) and mahones cheese, grilled seafood or with rice soup, the succulent portions of fresh cuttlefish with peas ... or, without more, the typical bread with garlic, oil and olives can be like delicacies of the gods if they are eaten in Menorca, on a lively terrace or in a classic tavern like those you will find in the heart of Ciutadella.
Tapas bars such as Can Rafa, Es Mercat de Ca Na Riera, the restaurant Ses Voltes, the Es Nàutic de Ciutadella will serve you rich examples of Menorcan cuisine to share and enjoy in small morsals; ideal to try everything, truly everything during a gastronomic getaway to Menorca.
If in addition to authentic food you are looking for spots where you can take a thousand and one photos, take note because the Xiringo de Cala Blanca and the restaurant Faro d'Artrutx are always a good choice for taking your partner or your friends to enjoy an evening you will always remember.
