See attached photograph - this is more of a beach hut bar that serves tapas type food on the side. The people in the photograph are sat on stools and have some table type stools in between them. In previous years the bar had bench type tables, but they seem to have been replaced by a collection of stool type... More

Lovely setting on our favourite stretch of coastline, cool bar and good tapas, homemade empanadas were a real hit. The price is very high but to be expected on the small island and at a cracking sunset location.

The location is really awesome! Just take your mojito, some nachos wait for the sunset with your friends.. This chilling time enriched by the wonder viewing is priceless! Prepare yourself for the long queue for ordering your holy mojito!

A nice place to have a mojto enjoing the sunset! The price is ok for the drink, but 7€ for some chips it's way too much! A bit disgusted by how many rude italian people and their behaviour, even I m from the same country. Anyway, forget it and relax!

Mojito is a must... for real sundowners only. The place is slow paced...chilling and still natural. One of the place to be in Formentera.

Went in July, service was really bad. The most unpleasant waitor ever. Ordered 1/2 sangrija. He brought us a big glass of sangrija. I complained that I ordered 1/2 litre, he gave us the attitude no you didn't. I ask for an extra glass at least for my friend and I to share. He says no. Then he brings us... More

This is the oldest chiringuito in Formentera, top location, you have to be there once to see the sunset and enjoy a cocktail and some nice music. Relax.
