A great place to stop for a lunch of typical local cuisine, this restaurant is in an old windmill at the west end of Es Mercadal, on the ME1 highway, about halfway between Mahón and Ciutadella and about 4 km (2½ miles) from El Toro. It has fortress-thick whitewashed stone walls and low vaulted ceilings, and a constant air of cheerful bustle. On warm summer days there are tables on the terrace. Menorcan specialties here include squid stuffed with anglerfish and shrimp, and chicken with centollo (spider crab). The thick vegetable soup, called sopas menorquinas, is excellent.
