What can I say about this bar? We visited Blanes in September 2016. We had a bad experience with our hotel (please see my other review on Hotel Esplendid), but this bar saved the day. We came here for a drink 2 - 3 times a day. Beit morning coffee or drinks throughout the day......it was perfect. The staff were... More

Lovely spot for a drink by the beach, friendly, clean and comfy. Right near all the shops. Not sure if it does food.

Had lovely cocktails and enjoyed the view, with a relaxed atmosphere. Not cheap but worth it even for one night. Only thing that irked us - the assault course to navigate to the toilets. slope floors and jutting furniture could be treacherous. overall, a nice evening cocktail

This is one of the better restaurants on the boulevard. Loungy atmosphere (music is however a bit too loud), nice food and wine and friendly service. Prices are relative high for the quality offered. But the location compensates a lot !

We visited Es Blanc during the last night of our stay in Blanes and I was very impressed indeed. Although a bit more expensive that other Blanes restaurants, it was worth every single penny and I wouldn't hesitate to visit again. The service was great, the food was absolutely delicious and the Black Irish digestive I had to round off... More

We stopped here every night of our holiday for the a delicious coffee on the terrace in front of the gorgeous view. We also came in for drinks one night, which were expensive, but well worth it for the location. We would love to go back!

Lovely relaxed place with plenty to interest on the carta. But...What's on the plate is EXACTLY what it says "on the tin". For example - Gambas al la Plancha was 8 plain boiled (small) prawns on a plate. Nothing else!!. Very strange for any restaurant to present especially at €34! Magret de Pato was 8 slices of duck on a... More

The bar/restaurant Es Blanc is the prettiest social place with beautiful scenery to the sea and is located on the beach. Very nice atmosphere which is created by lounge music. Very clean, looked after and modern, quite big place. Food is nice. Dogs are allowed by the certain tables. Service though can be improved: no one speaks english, hard to... More

The food is good or excellent event. They are close to the type of Michelin star food you would get in the more expensive restaurants. This one restaurant is therefore also higher priced at that. The way they put the food on the plates and the quality and different patterns of taste and textures of food is amazing. Unfortunately is... More
