“Food, glorious food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Almost opposite the airport in Menorca, this extended old farmhouse is so atmospheric. As its name suggests, it serves the most fantastic meats which you may select personally if you wish. Back in October last year I had a 600 gramme T-bone steak that almost melted in my mouth and the way it was cooked left nothing to be desired.
On our most recent visit I was seduced by the leg of lamb and my wife by the suckling pig. After a starter of finely sliced ham and toasted bread with tomato there was, sadly, no room for a pudding.
Well worth a visit. In the summer there is a huge outdoor dining area.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

We eventually found this restaurant it really is virtually in the airport ! Drive around the car parks and out the other side to get to the car park. There were only a few of us in for lunch just after new year and it was very quiet like all of Menorca. We were fussed over and food was tasty but straightforward. Quite pricey though. Bet it is really atmospheric in the evening during the summer though and you don't really notice the airport being so close.

“Great Atmosphere late at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

This restaurant at the edge of the airport is terrific for its general atmosphere. There is plenty of space between the tables which we like. The food is good with plenty of fresh meat. Everything is very reasonably priced. We a bottle of Gran Caus rosé for which they charged €18.00. We had been charged up to €25.00 for the same bottle of wine in other restaurants. After midnight they usually have a live band perform in the restaurant and many people arrive simply for the music and drinks. Certainly a venue not to be missed on a visit to Menorca. Not what you would expect at the edge of an airport!

“The Grill near the airport!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

An 'unlikely' location for a nice restaurant really...you have to drive into the Mahon airport & enter the restaurant upon leaving the airport road.
That said, I have dined here many times and must say it has become rather a favourite.
Dining is provided both inside the traditional farmhouse building and also in the extensive exterior covered area, which now includes an external bar, open on weekends during the peak summer months. There may also be live music on saturday evenings, albeit not until late. A great place to meet friends!
The food is always reasonable, with quite a selection to choose from. Diners are encouraged to view the fresh meats on offer from the meat cabinet before deciding...
Them eat is cooked in a charcoal fired grill and the smells are delightful. Needless to say, this is primarily a meat restaurant.
The grilled BBQ asparagus with freshly ground salt makes an excellent starter...
The house wines are good and not too expensive.
The owner is very hospitable and bears a remarkable resemblance to Billy Connolly!
A great lively Restaurant to dine with friends...never that busy before 9pm though, very Spanish!
Not the cheapest place to eat, but for something a little different, and excellent meats, well worth a visit!!

“Atmospheric”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

Dined here on several occasions. On the whole I think the best way to describe dining here is an experience and one worth having. The food and service good but the sneaky waiter screwed us on the wine the last time we visted so my advise is to stick to the house wine and do not be persuaded away from it. That said I would visit again and recommend the lamb chops. We always come away having had a great evening but with empty pockets.
