1994 - 1st time at Tony's Restaurant, just past the old Gavilanes.
Great food and views. especially at night.

Hi OSD

I've just booked mine too - it was so busy this year I didn't want to risk it. The gardens gets booked up really quickly now. I'm also going in May and August as well. Usual place !

Can I ask who you are flying with and where from? Easyjet don't release their flights for next May until October. There's only Monarch and Easyjet from Luton and Monarch go at the crack of dawn so I normally only use them for the return flight.

I'm flying from Manchester with Thomas Cook - usually monarch are cheaper but they are all "crack of dawn" flights because I prefer to get there as early as possible!

Thanks for your response. I tried Thomas Cook, hells bells, they go at 5.40 am from Stansted. That's not crack of dawn, that's middle of the night!! I'll just have to wait a few weeks for Easyjet to release their flights. We are flying out with them again in a couple of weeks time and they go at 10.45 am, much more civilised! Fingers crossed there will still be some decent accommodation left for next May.

Monarch from Luton for us, nice 7.15am flight but the airport is being upgraded with major building works
so a 4.30am pick-up for the driver :smile: just to make sure !
still if we get in with plenty of time, leaves more times for a few pints @ ridiculous prices !

I don't do coffee that early in the morning :grin:

Hi R
We are in the gardens 17th May for 10 days, I think, with changing places to suit flights.
Will be nice to meet but bet you are coming out half term week !!!!
that has caused us problems with bookings :roll:

or may be not

Far too many people are discovering the joy that is menorca :lol: plus things out of our control booking anything has been a struggle. Can't even contemplate next year but looks like we may have to. On a brighter note 18 SLEEPS :barmy: :ele: :barmy:
