Nice restaurant

Will be staying at a villa in Cala'n Porter for a week commencing 19 Sept and will celebrate our wedding anniversary whilst there. Anyone recommend a "special" restaurant?

Hi,

Lots of lovely restaurants in CnP, you could try La Pallette at the caves or visit Cobblers in Alaior. Cobblers would be my choice for a special night out.

If you don't have a car I don't think a taxi would set you back too much. Talk to Paul in Bar Gorgeous Olivers as it is his partner (also called Paul) who runs Cobblers.

I'll second Cobblers for a "special" night out. Taxi should be around the 10 - 12 Euro mark each way. If you want to do "mega posh" then C'an Olga in Es Mercadal fits the bill. About double for the taxi tho. Here's Poppy's review:

Another alternative might be Es Cranc in Fornells. Have a look at the site but if you decide to go for it book at least 2 weeks in advance - it's always full of islanders and that tells you more than any reco' can.

How about Can Bernat on the road between San Clemente and Calan Porter, the food is excellent there, the back terrace looks out over the pine forest and you can actually choose the meat and fish you want from the glass display case loacated inside the restaurant. Would only be a few euros in a taxi, speak to local calan porter taxi drivers located outside the SA PAISSA restaurant in resort, they are Juan, Sharaon and Sara.

Thanks for that Carol - will definitely give "Cobblers" a try, and we have booked a car from the airport so it shouldn't be a problem.

Just one other mention as you seem to be in the know about Menorca! Last time we were there was in 2001 and I bought some shoes in a shoe factory, think maybe it was in Mercadal? Can you recommend the best place to buy shoes now?

For trad menorcan sandalls (and lots of other shoes too) the cheapest place is the outlet on the Fererias industrial estate. It's just behind the Jaime Mascaro that you can see from the main road.

DONT try the restaurant overlooking the pines on the road to Es Castell, been there 4 times because of its location and the food has been rubbish every time apart from the pre starters of bread and pate and good service.
