Cafe Balear, Cuitadella. A place with history in Menorca

Located in the Ciutadella’s port, Cafe Balear is an institution in the area since it opened in the 70s as a mere tavern.

Nowadays, however, it is not just a tavern but the loveliest restaurant in Ciutadella.

Their terrace is so close to the water you will see the fish swimming while you enjoy your dinner. And if that is not special enough, you will also get a stunning view of the Cathedral from your table.
