Family holidays in Menorca start with getting a taste of the delicious cuisine available across the island, promising plenty of fresh local products, from seafood and vegetables to the amazing cheeses. |
Likewise, restaurants serving traditional Spanish dishes like paella and a range of tapas can be found all over Menorca, with options that suit every taste – including plenty of child-friendly places.
Located in Son Bou, Casa Andres is a family-run restaurant that is the perfect spot for holidaymakers with children. The children’s menu has dishes that are familiar and that they are guaranteed to love, including old favourites like fish and chips. At the same time, when embarking on family holidays in Menorca many still look for traditional Spanish food as well, so if you have a craving for paella and tapas you’re covered when you visit the family-friendly Casa Andres.
In Ciutadella, this waterside restaurant is considered by most to be one of the best spots to try Caldereta de Langosta, which is a speciality of the island. The lobster stew is served in most restaurants in Menorca, although Café Balear is able to boast a top quality dish, with the lobster for the dish freshly caught from the restaurant’s own boat on a daily basis.
Family holidays in Menorca can be carefree and laid-back, because most places across the island do cater to families with children – especially in the popular tourist areas. In Café Balear, there are several fantastic options on the children’s menu, including smaller portions of the dishes on the main menu. What’s more, for those kids who are missing a taste of home, there are options such as breaded chicken and meatballs.
When the restaurant gets busy, the owners also have a pizzeria (Pizza Roma) situated near-by, which offers both the options to eat in or takeaway.
One of Cala Galdana’s popular choices for a lunch break is Sa Luna, with fantastic pizzas made to order featuring a great range of toppings. One of the reasons that Sa Luna is such an attractive place for families is the swimming pool for the kids.
Can Vermut can be found in Mahón, down on the harbour. This restaurant serves traditional tapas, with favourites like aubergine lasagne and sobrasada sausage some of the best picks on the menu. Can Vermut also offers you the opportunity to try some of the local Mahón cheese. With a great selection of local drinks, including a great house vermouth, Can Vermut is suited to families with older children.
