Beautiful views, charming service

I arrived in Fornells at around 3.00 and started exploring looking for places for lunch that were open. Some of the TA recommendations weren't unfortunately but as I wandered around I saw this place was open and whilst I'm not sure it was on my list the views were pretty impressive and the menu del... read more

We stayed in a different resort but decided to visit Fornells on day. It's such a beautiful place and decided to come back for dinner one evening. We chose Es Pla and we are so glad we did. The service was fantastic. I had a vodka and coke and the waiter brought the vodka over to the table t check... More

We ate here twice on our holidays and each time had the set menu for 19 euros. The food was very flavoursome and well presented. The paella starter and fish soup were both gorgeous as were the mains of grilled Cuttlefish, roast lamb and hake. The service was excellent - very professional and friendly and the location right next to... More

We have eaten here several times over the years but this year I was very disappointed. The waiter was not friendly even when I ordered in Spanish he just didn't seem interested in serving us. The table next to us ordered the lobster stew and he couldn't be more friendly to them (who were also English so it's not a... More

Lovely location and view of the harbour. The lunch (grilled sole) off the set menu, which is very reasonably priced, was fine and the service was good. Nice atmosphere (sat inside the restaurant) and I liked the decor. Went back a couple of weeks later for dinner in a foursome and was disappointed. We all had the set menu but... More

Although I can read some negative reviews about this place, it is and has been the best lobster soup ("caldereta") in the island. Really important people used to come here from Mallorca and Ibiza, and still do. The service is good, the food is superb. A bit pricey of course, but you will pay the same price all over Menorca...

We took a chance on this place as the reviews were mixed, however I would avoid eating here!! We asked due garlic bread for a starter and got told we couldn't have that as it wasn't on the menu. Then the food arrived very quickly and it was obviously pre-made and then had just been heated up to be served.... More

OK. This is not a tourist trap, as some other reviews suggest. But the prices are too high for the quality that you get. Positive: - Great location. Table outside right next to the water - Friendly service, although a bit rushed - OK, average quality food, nothing special - Caldereta was OK, but expensive- 75 euro (as it is... More

Es Pla Fornells harbour, we were surprised to see how many of the restaurants had plenty of free tables. Being that our visit was on a fri night late in July we expected to have trouble getting a table. We chose Es Pla as it was next to the harbour. My wife and daughter went for the menu del did...
