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

Worse paella of my life. Poor and way too expensive. I order also prawn but they were not fresh and not from the area.

Whenever we visit Menorca, a meal at Es Cranc is a must. It has a great natural atmosphere, family run, highly polished service and inviting local dishes cooked with skill. It has never failed on any level.

My wife an me went to this known place in Menorca island to have our Friday lunch. It was recommended by a good friend. He remembered that was expensive, but never so, so expensive. The food is good enough for two people. But... not, never again.

Wonderful family restaurant, with a 'Grand Restaurant/Louis de Funès' feel, at least the restaurant manager. Typical local food and local feel in a real spanish restaurant, with the unavoidable bad lichting choice. Nevertheless a cosy feel and nice tablesetting.

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.
