The modest wooden exterior of this harborside restaurant is misleading—Es Pla has hosted royalty. King Juan Carlos has made detours here during his sailing holidays in the Balearics, to sample its justly famous caldereta de langosta (lobster stew). This single costly dish skews an otherwise reasonably priced menu, but a prix-fixe caldereta menu, with steamed mussels or scallops in their shell for starters, along with dessert and coffee, is a bargain. Other excellent seafood dishes include grilled scorpion fish, scallops drizzled with olive oil, and anglerfish with marisco (seafood) sauce.
