10 of us from 3 to 70 for dinner. A little uncertain what to choose st the start but went for tapas and then fiduella. Best meal of our two weeks. Portions are large so err on ordering less . We really enjoyed our visit.

We've been there for a lunch because we wanted a typical caldereta and paella, we asked for a caldereta, black rice, fideua and it was amazing... Food and service was amazing, waiters were very kind and helpful... It's a required stop :)

We were lucky to stumble upon this restaurant by chance. Oh, what a find! This is a small family restaurant. They serve very fresh fish. You can tell they know their fish, as they are fishermen in the family. Good quality product and excellent service....More

Thank you very much for your contributions. Yes! our restaurant is small and we are fishing long before we have the restaurant, so we know the location very well and that is why we offer the best fish on the island. regards

We followed Trip Advisor's advice and had dinner here. We ordered Baked Fish and were surprised to receive a fish stew which, unfortunately, was 95% potato and very little fish. It was a pleasant tasting stew but was certainly not baked fish. Very disappointed.

Eva G, Director de Relaciones con Clientes at Can Tanu, responded to this reviewResponded June 17, 2018

Mr Allen, we feel the misunderstanding. In our small restaurant we do not serve baked fish, instead one of the typical Menorcan dishes is the fish bakery, a potato soup with fish. typical recipe of menorca. We appreciate the visit. regards
