We went here for our last night in Formentera. The location is superb - right by the beach. However, the food didn't live up to it. I had duck, which was badly cooked. My company had the ribs, tasty, but definitely not worth 26 euro. The staff seemed to forget about you - my mother didn't even get her beer... More

Visited the restaurant 7 times during our two weeks stay at Formentera. Fantastic food, very nicely presented. Very friendly and profesional staff. Nice wine meny and fantastic view overlooking the ocean. If you are interested in fine dining and modern cookin do not miss this restaurant! A starter €10 and main course €15-26. Italian style food.

Be prepared to dinner in 2 hours maximum . Otherwise the waiter will ask you to leave the table !!!! Good dinner and food but the unexpected reaction in the end makes us forget the rest .

Bocasalina is located below the Tahiti Hotel but is run independently and has a distinct Italian flavour, although they also do paellas and other Spanish dishes. Subdued ambiance, indoors is elegant and understated, outdoors is modern and fresh. It offers a magnificent view over the beach and the bay, and with its full sized windows it feels like you are...

On our first day in Formentera, and after travelling since 03:30, the nearest restaurant was to be our choice as we were all very tired. The staff in this restaurant were very friendly, the service was excellent with stunning views across the bay. The menu was quite extensive giving a wide range of choice, however it was all quite pricey... More
