Creative seafood restaurant

What we do

What we do:

From the Fish market to the table

We believe that great quality is the essential foundation of a great cuisine. This is why every morning we go to the “Mercat de Peix” (the Mahón Fish Market) in search of the freshest local products: wild fish and shellfish from Menorca and from the Mediterranean sea.

Fish & vegetables

From our beginning we decided not to serve meat but, instead, to elaborate an imaginative and delicate seafood cuisine, with digressions towards the vegetable garden, where authentic and delicious flavours are hidden. In order to offer a unique experience around a table, we prepare our dishes with dedication and care.

Market cuisine

We change the menu according to the seasonality of the products of the sea and the land and through this collaboration with the fishermen and farmers of the island we seek the roots of a sustainable, healthy and local cuisine.

How we work

How we work:

Sustainable restaurant

We were born sustainable and that is why we naturally became the first restaurant on the island to obtain the Menorca Biosphere Reserve brand, the official seal of sustainability for the island’s products and services.

Logo Sostenibilidad Marca Menorca Reserva de Biosfera

For visitors and inhabitants, this seal is a guarantee that by opting for a certified restaurant they are creating a positive impact at an environmental, cultural, social and economic level.
