Price - Quality not right

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... read 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

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...

We had three evening meals here during our 7 day holiday in July 15 and all were excellent. Location is perfect on the edge of the harbour and a living aquarium to watch while you eat. It was by far the best for quality compared to four others we visited and all the staff were very attentive. Best to book... More

This is s fantastic place to go gut a leisurely lunch in the shade from the midday sun, right in the edge of the water with a stunning view from the terrace area. Go for a set lunch menu as it offers many choices from the main menu but much cheaper. Great options for children including seafood paella. Their tall... More

Excellent harbour side location, friendly staff and good food at value prices. I had a set three course meal at 19.50 Euros while wife's was only 16.50. It included delicious scrambled egg & prawns starter, grilled Hake main course and crepe with cream and fruit. Pleasant ambience and recommend this restaurant!

In the Game of Restaurants played out in Fornells by the daily visitors from North and South all making choices for the place to eat today then unprepossessing Es Pla is the place of kings on the actual quay side. It's obviously been around for many a year, does strangely inclusive menu fixes which included 'our must eat one while... More
