Lobster lobster and lobster. We had it on the caldereta and we had it sautéed and both were amazing!!! The waiters are super local, honest and friendly. Great dinner yet expect to pay the price for high quality super delicious fresh lobster.

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.
