Having poked around Fornells and the rest of the island for a very happy week we saved Es Cranc for our last night which was also my 26th birthday (twice round). It's been said already but this is in the old town towards the tower and not on the seafront. It doesn't have outside seating but the ambience and air... More

The food is good, don't get me wrong. Simple but good. The lobster caldereta (typical Menorcan dish) is rich and tasty. And, on top of this, the ambience is very fresh and clean. But it's far too expensive: €70 for a lobster is definitely too much. I can get it cheaper in London, which is one of the most expensive... More

My wife and I have been coming back to this restaurant every year for the last six years; and the thing that bring is back is their succulent Arroz Caldoso! We have tried in other places in Spain, but nothing like the one cooked at Es Crank. Your paired it with a good Verdejo or Albariño and you will enjoyed... More

We were introduced to Es Cranc by some friends staying in Mahon, who were happy to drive over to their favourite fish restaurant on the island. We went there twice in the 6 days we were in Fornells & would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant. Both times we enjoyed the menu, which at just under 20 Euros was superb... More

We went to this restaurant looking at the good reviews but we didn't stay because of the prices... Lot's of dishes btw 40 and 70€... It might be worth it but you should know it before going.

This place is worth hunting down as it is just up in the old town and not one of the tourist traps near the harbour. We came here for a birthday as my partner and I just love seafood and this was highly recommended. The service and ambiance was perfect, yes some of the prices are high for lobster based... More

We are reasonably foodie, and, having had a couple of very disappointing (and expensive) meals on the seafront in Fornells - including one which had been recommended in our guidebook which was dreadful, we decided to try Es Cranc, which is slightly off the beaten track. Hidden in the old town, rather than on the sea front, it doesn't have... More

We have visited this restaurant many times over the years and have never had a bad meal. When you arrive you are greeted like a member of the family. Even if you are a first time guest you will still be met very warmly. There are 2 set menus available, one at €15 and one at €18. Both are 3... More
