    Mon

    With Michelin-starred, Ciutadella-born chef Felip Llufriu (who trained under Catalonia's celebrated Roca brothers) at the helm, Mon offers just two tasting menus. Your three or seven deliciously inventive courses highlight locally sourced fish, meat and produce, featuring, perhaps, crayfish-stuffed avocado cannelloni or fresh fish of the day with orange-and-olive sauce. Choose between the sleek white-on-white interior or the back patio.

    Moriarty

    In the marvellous lobby of the 19th-century Palau Salort, Moriarty is a lively G&T 'club' and modern-Mediterranean tapas bar-restaurant, with a gorgeous garden. Clipboard-style menus focus on subtly inventive dishes like Menorcan-cheese platters, huevos rotos (fried eggs with potatoes), and a few veggie bites like apple and hazelnut salad or leek tarts with mushroom sauce. Liquid mixes include local Xoriguer gin, plus cocktails and Spanish wines.

    Rels

    Original, creative flavours infuse delicately presented, Menorcan-with-a-twist dishes at this slick, white-clad restaurant overlooking a courtyard. Attentive staff deliver imaginative meals rooted in local cooking, with starters of prawn ravioli, oysters in lemon gel and cool beetroot-and-basil soup giving way to roast suckling pig or (preordered) caldereta de llagosta. Don't miss the colour-themed desserts, like 'Color Naranja' (orange with mango sorbet).

    Ulisses

    Overlooking Ciutadella's market, Ulisses doubles as both fabulous tapas spot and down-to-earth cocktail-and-wine bar. A keen young team pours a thoughtful selection of Spanish and Balearic wines by the glass (€3 to €5), or go for innovative cocktails like the prize-winning Purple Rain. Spanish-international delights fuelled by market-driven ingredients include tortilla, courgette carpaccio, tofu burgers, crunchy salads and nachos with guacamole.

    Smoix

    A pinch of creativity spices up the contemporary-Menorcan cooking at this fashionable restaurant with industrial-chic touches and a sunken courtyard. You might begin with, say, potato, onion and sea-urchin scramble, followed by cod-loin tataki with tomatoes and roasted jalapeño chili peppers. The food is fresh and local, the ambience low-key and romantic, and there's a good-value three-course set lunch (€21).

    Café Balear

    Down by the water, this 1970s old-timer remains one of Ciutadella’s classic seafood stops, and there's often a queue for tables. You can eat outside on the quayside while tucking into local prawns, grilled navajas (razor clams), caldereta de llagosta (Menorcan lobster stew), arròs caldoso (creamy seafood rice) or fresh fish, caught from Café Balear’s own boat.

    Cas Cònsol

    Occupying the former French consulate, Cas Cònsol harmoniously blends the modern and minimalist within a historical setting, serving tapas and creative mains such as salmon ravioli, presa Ibérica (Iberian pork) with paprika-garlic sauce, or fresh fish of the day. It's a lovely setting, and from the small wedge of terrace there are great views across the harbour below.
