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

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.
