Superb welcome. The grilled fish platter is overwelmingly good quality. The interior is a little bright and clinical however the food is cooked and presented very well. Advise booking..even at lunchtime. The host and his wife are very welcoming......look out for his bright shirts !!

Have been going to Es Cranc for a number of years. The seafood paella is really good as are Mussels tramuntana. You need to book in advance to get in.
