Excellent Expensive with a Fast Food Service

The most known and expensive, excellent food but the service is too fast because they wish to take two rounds at 21 30 and 23 30, manner not acceptable compared to the applied prices. But it is always packed and if people likes the running guy does right.

Nice atmosphere. We had dinner in the outdoor area, beautifully decorated with lots of romantic lights. I didn't love the crowd however, a little over-done/over-dressed ... food was nothing special and is certainly overpriced. I guess Can Carlos is a must go, at least once while in Formentera, to be seen by the in crowd, but I would probably not... More

A thoroughly enjoyable experience - you sit in a lovely courtyard and garden, really stylish, quite big actually, and extremely pleasant atmosphere. Some tables for 2 perhaps a little close to each other, but a really nice buzz with largely Spanish and Italian clientele, couples, families, big groups. They get the gig here - you sit down, and get offered... More

Elegant, delicate, charming, unpretentious, great!! The menu is surprising and the food is simply perfect. Staff is very kind and efficient. The wine list is fantastic although not cheap. Still the best is the atmosphere particularly at night and outdoors. Overall the place is no doubt pricey but worth it.

Wonderful place, very nice service, delicious tuna carpaccio for entrance, and then a rat enters the scene, walking through the magnificent olive trees just above our heads. Could be a perfect place but after this I just couldn't enjoy anything more.

Charming location al fresco. Amazing food. I reccomend the "spuntina" or beef carpaccio cooked quickly in the owen with formentera herbs. Great pasta as well and very innovative yet delicious desserts. Very good service. Charming and beautiful people.

Dining al fresco at this location is a treat. The town is very charming and this restaurant is as well. Upscale with great service and delicious good, it's a must for a fancier dinner in the town.

We tried several restaurants during our stay in Formentera and this was the only one with high standard/quality! Everything was perfect and the food amazing. Yes it was expensive but soooo worth it!

The service was flawless and all the waiters were attentive and professional. I must say this is one of the best restaurants when it comes to service that I experienced in formentera in a week. The prices are higher than in other places but well worth every penny. If you want to eat good, you pay. The quality and presentation... More
