May 2012 in ST

Post by rushstag » March 8th, 2012, 5:09 pm

Hi all,

My partner and I are coming over 9-16 May, does anyone know if there's likely to be much open in the resort by then? It's our first time staying in ST (Hamilton Court Apts) as we normally stay in CnP in April/May so we're used to the island being quiet (it's part of the attraction).

Also any recent restaurant recommendations anywhere on the island would be welcome as I always hire a car in Menorca and am happy to drive absolutely anywhere for great food :toasting:

Many thanks, not visited the site for a year or two and happy to see it remains very friendly and fantastically helpful :grin:

Rich.

Hi Rich

We regularly visit ST at this time of the year and you will find all the resort open. It's very nice because it will be quiet in the resort and plenty of room on the beach. Hamilton Court is a nice complex you should like it there :grin:
I have just put a lovely restaurant recommendation on the main help page, Can Bep in Cuitadella, it not the cheapest but great for that special meal...
Hope you have a great time :spazzies:

Many thanks both.

Grumps, I'll certainly be visiting Calas Fonts, love it there and always call into La Caprichosa for chanquetas (whitebait) followed by salami pizza, it's a tradition :grin:

Alan, many thanks for the info on ST and Can Bep recommendation. I saw La Guitarra on that thread too which I've always thought was nice so I'll give Can Bep a go and report back. Good to hear that the resort will be open. On that subject, does anyone know if En Caragol is open in May? Never dined there but always fancied a visit.

Really looking forward to returning to the island after missing out last year. There's just nowhere like it. :cool:

Rich.

As far as I know if it's en caragol biniacolla, it's open all year, but I'm sure one of the lucky locals will put me right if it is not. Either way it will be open in May :grin:
You do get the withdrawal blues if you have a year off from Menorca, as it's such a magical place.
I am sure you will like Can Bep if you appreciate good food, the steaks are fantastic and Pedro will also make you welcome.
Hope you have a great time

Cheers Alan, eight weeks on Wednesday. Not that I'm counting or anything :grin:

I read Disco Dolly's excellent and comprehensive guide to eateries in ST itself, but notice that it's a few years old now. Without expecting anyone to re-write the whole thing, is it still fairly accurate?

Cheers,

Rich.
