Our second visit to this delightful harbouside restaurant, albeit five years apart, and it more than lived up to our memories. We ate from the menu del dia this time, so interestingly different from its many neighbours the other side of the bridge. Tuna carpaccio...More

Lovely atmosphere, outstanding tasty meals and good quality wines. Service staff were warm and attentive. The restaurant...More

Ciutadella's tiny harbour is one of the prettiest places to have dinner in the Mediterranean. Cafe Balear was recommended to us by the owner of our hotel, and we were not disappointed. We had the langoustines which were delicious.

Lovely location right by the water but a little apart from the other harbourside eateries. Extremely welcoming and helpful staff, absolutely delicious seafood - they have their own boat catching their own fish etc. The menu del dia was a steal at €18.50. Huge wine...More

The food was truly beautiful - we shared a tomato and ventresca salad and a seafood parrillada and both were perfect. It is pricey but truly top-notch. Best prawns I have ever had in my life!

This is a real find. Ciutadella has a limited number of great restaurants. This is one. Wild fish grilled to perfection, potatos and veggies just right. Service a bit slow but the food is worth the wait. Great prices. About 30Euros per person. These people...More

Although the a la carte menu is pricey the set 3 course lunch is not. Every dish was outstanding and really good value for the high quality. If you need a place for lunch in Ciutadella, head for this cafe by the harbour. Excellent service...More

It was opened in the 70s, as a tavern in the harbour that welcomed seafarers in the early hours of the morning before they went to work. Over 40 years, the family business gains the confidence of its customers and became the meeting place for many, where they could enjoy all kinds of tapas and freshly caught seafood. At the present time Cafè Balear is a highly-regarded Menorcan restaurant and a must visit in the Port of Ciutadella. Here you will find a lively welcoming atmosphere, where you can enjoy dishes based on fish and seafood, freshly caught by our own boat, the Rosa Santa Primera.
