Greats but tad expensive compared to other restaurants

Had a lovely lobster starter followed by a carbonara. It was a little expensive but the atmosphere and restaurant was set in a lovely spacious court yard.

Can Carlos is a very good restaurant. The service is pretty good. A member of the staff (italian guy) is always happy and always gives the best. You can spot his enthusiasm. Back to the restaurant, the setting is nice. It is a cosy restaurant in a lovely courtyard. The food is delicious. At the start you don't imagine the... More

The only negative is that it is not close to the sea, but the atmosphere, the food and the great care and passion of Franceschino, the owner, makes it up. It is one of the best restaurant on the island. Try the pappa di pomodoro and the lamb!! Expensive and with a bit of jet set, you will enjoy it.

We have been here with a couple. In total we have 4 children. The food is in average As quality. The bill was almost 300 euros for 2 people. No particular wine or dishes. I haven't seen any vip, but the average client is quite old. Many thanks

Went for dinner with my partner, we had no reservation so were lucky to get a table as by the time we left the place was full. The service was excellent and the food very good, but not amazing for the price. I had the spaghetti with prawns (the prawns were excellent) and my partner the barbecued squid (also very... More

I've been here for a dinner with my gf. The location is nice but nothing especial (far away from the seaside in the middle of Formentera). Quality of the food is very high but the prices are too high even for the expensive Formentera. 1 starter, 2 fish pasta, 1 glass of wine, 1 bottle of water: 120 euro. A... More

I absolutely loved this place. Ok it is not cheap at all but it is totally worth it. It's the lights, the garden, the plants and trees, the waiters, the food... such a relaxed and amazing atmosphere, really.

Have been going to this restaurant for years now. Always loved the food and the setting but the service has been getting worse and this last time was just terrible. Food took over an hour to come and pasta was cold - which is unacceptable at this level and price. When asked, staff was unhelpful and even when I expressed... More
