I am travelling to Menorca in September and staying in Cala n Forcat. We will be hiring a car so can anybody recommend some good beaches preferably fairly quiet. We visited a few years ago and went to Arenal de son Saura which was perfect and will be visiting there again!

Also can anybody recommend any authentic good quality spanish and fresh fish restaurants? As we are hiring a car we are prepared to travel!

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Pa amb Oli just off the main square. It is Spanish owned and has a wonderful atmosphere and lots of Spanish families eat there, which is always a good sign. I had the lamb and my husband had the mixed grill. The portions are mega. It was a good job we didnt bother with starters. Another of our favourites, as we love fresh fish, is Cafe Balear (check out their web page). Again, lots of Spanish families eat there and it nearly always has a queue, but the queue moves quite quickly and it is definitely worth the wait. You can reserve a table inside, but have to wait for tables outside, but well worth it. Cafe Balear is at the far end of the harbour, just over the bridge.

cafe Balear - just 'past' the bridge. So if you come down the pedestrian steps from town side to the harbour turn right not left - then is 50 M on the right -might need to reserve _ went past there 20 min 1 hour efore opening, cmae back every table taken and 20 people in a queue -now that's a recommendation.

You have 3 in resort, but they are only average at best.

Cala Bosh is nice, about a 20-25 min drive away, but if you do not have a hire car for every day, you can also get to it by Bus.

Places to eat, in resort, Im sure others will post for places outside resort.

Talyot (its open to none residents)

Binimar (its the all inclusive buffet, for none residents its about 15 euro for an adult, loads of choice, 3 course with wine.
