We eat in this restaurant every year and have never been disappointed. There are 2 set menus in addition to the a la carte. We always have the cheapest set menu which has 3 courses and also includes bread, water and wine; it costs 15 euros per person. It is a popular restaurant and even in June... read more

I had dinner at Es Cranc with my family towards the end of June. It's no coincidence that this restaurant is favored by locals.The "Caldereta de Langosta" (Lobster Soup) was truly delicious, the best we could find on the Menorca Island. It's obviously an expensive dish but the portions are huge (we ordered three portions and it was more than... More

The most superior quality Seafood I have come across on the island and maybe anywhere else. A great atmosphere and service make a very special experience of 1st class seafood.

Es Cranc used to be one of the most best fish restaurants in Fornells but I'm afraid that it's mantle has slipped. The menu has a wide range of fish but too many of the dishes are covered in 'taste masking' sauces. The restaurant itself is large and has been redecorated - it is now a bit like a brightly... More

We had gone there with another couple because it had been recommended to us. When the plate with discolored frozen vegetables over thawed fish was brought in we knew we had made a mistake. Unfortunately we did not think of taking a picture for posterity, The shellfish soup was acceptable -not extraordinary- and the price relatively expensive.

Decided to try this restaurant due to good reviews. The lobster stew was way too expensive, so we decided to have the sea food paella. It was very good and large (2 persons minimum), but very expensive for what it was at around £50 for two. That said, it was a very nice evening with good service. They did have... More

Everyone knows that one of the reasons the gourmet travels to Menorca is the Caldereta de Langosta but, as often as not, one's expectations are let down by the mediocre, over-priced reality. This is very much NOT the case with Es Cranc. This wonderful family restaurant always delivers the goods. The Caldereta we enjoyed the other day was a masterpiece... More
