Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Awesome restaurant in the heart of the Altea old town. The Scorpion pizza is awesome, and the homemade Russian salad. Delicious

Visited on a Thursday evening when the night market was on. There was a lovely atmosphere and we were lucky to get a table before the queue built up. The staff were super friendly and welcoming and the tapas were some of the best I...have ever had, accompanied by some great wines. Will definitely visit again.More

I love this place! We always went for lunch and left happy and satisfied. We shared various tapas, one better than the other. Good quality, good presentation, just the perfect place for a break during the day. It’s in the middle of Es Mercadal.

It’s hard to have a bad gastronomic experience if you are dinning in such a beautiful village as Es Mercadal. But these guys nailed the combination of a cool atmosphere and fantastic tapas to experience the best of Menorca’s cuisine.

we tried several tapas, some were nice some other quite normal, the main issue was the price. Too high for the place and for the quality and quantity of the food. We didn't really enjoy. the sauce with vegetables tempura was awful. No vinegar in...the sauce.More

The food in this restaurant was one of the best we had during our vacation. If you are travelling by, for example on your way to the Toro mountain, I recommend you to stop by. We had chicken fingers, ox meatballs and potatas bravas and...they were absolutely delicious. All hand made and so yummy.More

What a great little place. We had 2 nights here because the food was good, but the service and advice is even better. I like a place that advises you have ordered too much tapas, to dishes that are too similar, they genuinely want you...to enjoy the food, very genuine people. If you are in Mercadal, give this place a try, you will love it!More

Having spent an enjoyable afternoon exploring the streets of Mercadal in the blistering heat, we took a welcome break sat outside watching the world go by. Such a relaxing place we could have stayed all afternoon.

Located in a centrally located pedestrian and scooter junction with another similar place adjacent. Draught beer available, whilst I'm no expert, I would say good choice of tapas. Given the state (value) of sterling nothing is cheap anymore but we went twice, lunch and dinner,...and thoroughly enjoyed it. I noted that the pizzas on the table next to me looked ordinary and have seen a disappointing comment re. pizzas so PLEASE choose the tapas (or go to a pizza restaurant!)More

The Tapas Gastro Bar was always very busy but we were lucky one evening to be able to get a table. Our luck was definitely in. The tapas were delicious, again we ate far too much but everything was so moreish , especially the Padron...peppers. The menu is not extensive but everything was very fresh and extremely well presented. In fact it took us by surprise as the food presentation was better than in some restaurants. Equally important, it tasted good. Washed down with a local red wine and local beer. Most of the tables are set outside so, once again, we were able to eat, drink and watch the world go by all at the same time. As in all of the other establishments we visited whilst staying in Menorca, the standard of service was high and very friendly. Another lovely memory from our walking holiday in Menorca.More

Being easy to find in the centre of the town and with plenty of free parking nearby, this is one of the best places to eat in Mercadal. Tasty food, enormous portions and great value for money. Highly Recommended.
