Very high quality sophisticated food presented in a very nice way. The staff and chef Angelo are from Toscana and you can see that in the menu. The servings are very generous. One of the best places to eat on the island. .

Chanced upon it while riding our scooter during our fabulous stay in Formentera. Struck by the exterior. Romantic candle light atmosphere, warm welcome of the girl who served us, describing and suggesting what to choose in the menu. The goat's milk cheese with honey and sesame seeds was absolutely delicious! But there is much more.... Graziella and Roberto - August... More
