Pan con Cosas

Stunning view from this terrace that can get rather busy for lunch and dinner. Try "pan con cosas" - bread with things. Excellent!

We have been a few times and always have the tapas bruschetta - very simple tomato bruschetta with ham or pork. I am sure there is better food around but it is simple and great value and the views are mind blowing. We love if here!

Visiting Formentera for the first time, my girlfriend and I decided to come here for having breakfast the first morning. We were served really nicely. We asked for the classical "pa amb coses" and it was an excellent choice. They put in a plate several small portions of omelet, bacon, pork, over sliced bread with squeeze tomato. It was delicious!!!

We enjoyed an excellent evening meal here. The restaurant serves excellent seafood and we both had fine grilled fish dishes. The restaurant has beautiful views along the beach, particularly in the evening looking west towards the sunset. It can be busy in the evening so best to book if want to eat around 8 o'clock onwards.

I have been here twice, and both times were a BIG disappointment. Great sea views but the food is not all fresh and very overpriced for local things like calamari. There are other much better options in the same area like ES Calo and S'eufabi.

We stayed one week in Es Calo. We had breakfast almost every day with an amazing views. We also had lunch there. Food quality is very good. Arroz negro is great and calamari amazing. Nice place to have a snack too. We will definitely return.

Great view. Be sure to ask for Pa amb Coses. Toasted bread with tomato, with varied toppings. It is a good "merienda" / afternoon meal, or even a dinner if you are OK with a snack.

You will not be disappointed at this place, delicious food is being served at reasonable prices. We ordered a zarzuela the day before, it was good but quite heavy. I would go for paella next time. The service is very professional and great. They have also an outdoor area for coffee and drinks all day. The views are absolutely amazing...... More

We didn't order the paella, but probably should have, because we learned later that was their specialty. We did have great fish soup and gazpacho. They have good professional service which is important, because the place gets crowded and hectic.
