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.

We've been recommended this restaurant by our hotel. Really good choice because the restaurant is on the beach with an amazing view. The paella is made with fresh products...definitely worth it!!

fresh fish al fresco style; light and healthy. Busy so book. Great views over the ocean. Busy and buzzy atmosphere, but not so touristy, at least not when we were there.

A absolutely gorgeous place for lunch and a swim. We only had to wait 10 minutes for a table and it was well worth the wait. The food is excellent, service is fast, superb value for money and the scenery while enjoying lunch is breathtaking. A real gem.

Es calo de Sant Agusti is in on the main road in Formentera but well away from the busy North end of the island. The cafe and restaurant Rafalet overlook the best small beaches in Europe and the sea is a living translucent blue. We got the last unbooked table for lunch in the restaurant on the terrace and watched... More

We dropped in for a cappuccino and ensaimada whilst we enjoyed the splendid view of the natural harbour. As a location it cannot be faulted and with blue skies and a calm sea the view is simply stunning. But as others have commented it can be a little expensive, even for basics like a coffee. Still you go to Es... More

Great view, great fish. During our two weeks stay on Formentera we went here three times. The mixed grilled fish is excellent. Service was great the first day when we sat on the terrace. The other two times we had to sit inside and were ignored by the service. Anyway, you shouldn't miss the food!
