Description: Club Menorca is a Spanish Residencia and Bar-Restaurant in a fantastic setting, being set into a Cliff face overlooking the beach in Cala'n Porter on the south coast of Menorca. Indeed Club Menorca, being set 30 meters above the water, has a setting unequalled in the Balearic Islands, if not in the whole of Spain.

“Faulty Towers”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

First the positive, the food was good which is why this place has got even one star from me. The views are terrific too, earning it another star.

Now the downside. The service is atrocious. There is one woman serving who is the furthest thing from a waitress I've ever come across. When we arrived we had to go and get our own menus. She didn't at any time come over and ask us for an order, either for drinks or food. We had to go and find her. She didn't seem to have the ability to use a tray. She served the drinks to the table by carrying them one at a time except for two beers which she brought over together but kept spilling the contents over her feet as she was walking. To order food we had again to go and search her out. When the food eventually arrived it was good but again was served one or two plates at a time. No offer of a second round of drinks, we had to go find her again. She's English and obviously a relative of the owner which can be the only reason she gets to keep her job here.

The toilets !!!!!! ....disgusting. Dead flies everywhere and cockroach traps at the windows. Cobwebs all over the place. I thought there was some sort of inspection system to make sure a certain standard is maintained. If there is this place has slipped through the net.

It says in the title that this restaurant has a Certificate of Excellence 2013...who gave them that ??

“amazing views, awful service/food”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Visited here in July 2013. Staff were very friendly. The first time we visited was our first night, food was not too bad but very pricey starters for what they were. We were the only peoiple in the restaurant to begin with.The service was incredibly slow, we waited over 40 minutes for our deserts and then another 40 minutes for the bill despite asking alot. The female stood on the steps looking at the view when there were tables which needed waiting. The second time we visited as we didnt want to walk a long way into the centre. There were a few tables already sitting. There was a very long wait for our order to be taken. the toilets were disgusting, not clean and there was a large locust next to the toilet. The ice cream machine smashed whilst we were there causing another 30 min wait to be served while they cleaned up. This is a restaurant that needs someone to go and teach the staff how to serve and to help the chef out. the views were incredible over the bay but not a pleasant/relaxing experience.

“Club Menorca re-visit September 2013,”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

As I did a review last year which sort of showed this venue as poorly organised I thought I would return to check it out, give it another chance, so to speak.
Arrived as a party of 5, bought a drink and asked to see the menu, they arrived and the lady waiting the tables explained that there were no prawns, fair enough. We all decided what we wanted, starters, mains etc, then waited and waited and waited to give our order. The lady came and went but wouldn't come to our table, wouldn't even look at our table. Eventually I called to her across the terrace ' can we order some food?' She replied yes, just coming. At which point she vanished and we never saw her again. After another 30 mins one of my sons went into the bar area to see what was going on, the chap behind the bar said he didn't know we were out there waiting to be served. This is not a big place, how could he not have known. We all had burger and chips and left. What is wrong with these people, they had a party sat wanting to spend money, and dont get me started about the smelly toilets. Please get someone in to run the place, this could be a goldmine, we want to enjoy the visit but you make it impossible.

“Amazing view and lovely for an afternoon drink.”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We popped in for a drink after viewing this bar/restaurant from the beach/bay below. We had no problems and enjoyed a drink and chat with the friendly British owner. We were going to go back for some tapas one evening but having read some truly awful reviews decided not to. Such a shame, as the owner seemed so nice and it could be such an amazing place. We just weren't willing to take the risk of a bad experience. But, a great place for a drink!
