Chiringuito Es Bruc
Once you’re drizzling lemon over barbecued sardines, garlicky squid, and prawns hot off the grill, you’ll get the fuss everyone has been making over Es Bruc since it opened in the 1950s. It’s located right on the beach in Sant Tomàs, and there's another outpost in Cala Santandria, just south of Ciutadella. They also do great fried seafood, plus burgers, steaks, and tortilla for some turf with your surf. Many other chiringuitos tend to be lunch-only affairs, but you can get late breakfast here from around 10am. Along Menorca’s central-southern coast, walking routes weave out by the water to hidden coves such as Cala Escorxada, which makes Es Bruc a convenient post-swim/post-hike stop.
