We ate here twice and each time we were delighted. Charming, friendly service and really good cooking. We had the taster menus both times, once fish and once meat. Both are very good indeed. The meal is not cheap but if you want to enjoy good food and wine and a restaurant in a lovely setting then I would recommend... More

Fantastic experience in a restaurant with an amazing atmosphere! We were recommended Caterina by friends and were so glad that we tried it out. The bread that they brought out was GORGEOUS! We weren't all that hungry so we initially just ordered main courses. After we tasted the those we went straight to starters afterwards followed by sharing dessert! The... More

Situated across the road from Hostal Entre Pinos, this is a high end restaurant serving an eclectic menu from various cuisines. I had a beef wellington and my wife had fish served with a seafood broth served from an espresso pot! Sounds weird, tasted delicious. Service was attentive and friendly. Price was about 70 Euros for 2 so if you’re... More

Gorgeous restaurant in the middle of a quiet countryside of Formentera. One of the most refined on the island both in food and deco. We loved it! The details, the amazing burrata with green apple and the gnuddi...and of course the great service from the 2 founding uber-tasteful brothers.

Caterina is a delightful restaurant - for many reasons. Although it is alongside the main road to La Mola, it is set back amongst trees and has a charmingly landscaped terraced garden. The tables are well spaced and the decor is simple but chic, with nice little quirky touches. It is a haven of peace and quiet in total contrast... More

We read some of the disappointing reviews and don't share these opinions. In our view the location is lovely (set in the open air garden under pine trees) and the food of good quality. Also the service was efficient. Naturally it is not cheap, but then again if you come to Formentera expecting to pay little for food you are... More

A great italian restaurant in the woods, quiet and hidden, simple yet elegant. The italian chef from Tuscany creates brilliant courses, full of italian and spanish flavours, always new and surprising. The food, the presentation, the service and the location are top quality.

Went for dinner at 7:35pm. Saw 2 men sitting outside at a table. One coldly greeted us and said the restaurant does not open til 8pm, then blankly stared at us. No offer to have a drink or even sit on a lounge chair - the place was totally set up by the way. We decided to eat elsewhere in... More
