We ordered two nacho dishes. We got about 10 nacho-chips per dish with guacamole and some sort of bolognese sauce with it. That costs 18 euro per dish ! 1,80 euro per 1 chips is a crazy price. Never ever go there. A beer costs...8 euro’s. Crazy. Insane. Could be a lovely place if they would fix this and just put some honest food for a fair price on the table. Do something about it please. The restaurant doesn’t deserve this beautifull location. Sorry, but you don’t.More

We thought coming here at peek time at 1 o’clock would be a difficulty with or just how busy it was. We looked at the receptions face who had lovely smile. She told use we would only have to wait 15 minutes for a table...and offered us a place at the bar. Within 10 minutes we were seated at our table where we had a phenomenal service and food experienceMore

Waiters were really bad. They really gave the impression they hated their jobs and were annoyed serving you. Food was average and very overpriced.

Good service and food, but high prices (fish paella for two 84 euros), nice views. Excessive prices for the service. Careful!

Unless you're spending €100 per person at least, the staff are surly and irritable. Bookings must be made well in advance, and when you do, you'll wonder why you bothered. The setting IS impressive - the beach is amazing. Take the restaurant away from the...setting though and put it in a city centre, it would close down in a month. It really is that bad.More

Only one vegetarian option, which was very disappointing. The staff was mixed. Some friendly, some rude. Was not worth the high price tag.

Ten euros for a bottle of water. 42 euros for a steak the size of a large egg and some sad looking vegetables. Steamed mussels means what it says. Mussels, steamed, and put on a plate with nothing else. Horrendous bill for woeful food. Nice...view though. Should have packed some sandwiches.More

Very disappointing: prices are not only high, these are sickening. 34 Euro for a small portion of Buratta on a little bit of salad. Sangria was good, but the waiter was doing the presentation - as if he is tried or as if he was...doing us a favor. We were not very hungry and since we said that we would only to have drinks, the already little friendliness of the staff has disappeared completely. They were standing in the corner and discussing us. We had to call four times to get the attention of the waiter. It is not an only restaurant in Formentera. Stay away, in order not to spoil your entire holidays.More

We are sailing around the Ibiza/Formentera and we had lunch twice at Es Ministre, great atmosphere, nice breeze, fresh fish and friendly staff. Prices certainly justified for this location with such an amazing view and vibe. Try Lubina or Dorade al Sal. Great relaxed clientele...without need to show off.More

We couldn’t have felt any less welcome which ended our day on low after spending time on such a beautiful island. The staff were very rude and laughing at us. I would recommend the staff take some time to learn what good customer service is...because this was not it! Worst restaurant we’ve been to in SpainMore

Visited for lunch at 13:00. It was busy but we had reserved a table in advance. Staff were all polite and friendly. This is an expensive restaurant but the quality of the food and the scenery are amazing. I’d read some bad reviews but we...thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The only negative part was having to queue for 10mins for the toilet at the end.More

so i went with my kids to park the car here, because the plan was to swim to espalmador island, and its the closest point to it....so when we went back from it, starving obviously, this was our first choice. it looked good from outside....i remember it from a few years ago, when it was just bad in all senses, so thought there might be a change in ownership or whatever. once seated, got menus and prices where shocking. we live in Ibiza and know the prices of the good places. but these where even over it. somehow I still believed this could be a quality place, especiallly after I saw the waiter preparing a sangria in a really sofisticating way, on the table. so much sofisticating, that once you received tour food, and the waiter started to prepare it, you finished the food when he finished the preparation of the sangria ;) somehow I found it funny, because I still believed in the place. only after I saw the pasta bolognese for 22€ on the kids menu I understood whats goining on. and tastet it. to be fair, ceviche was ok and also the calamari, if they would have charge half price. so, if you get list in the are like we did, i think it's ok to get in this trap, but never go there on purpose.More

very poor, regretted entering this place. Stunning setting but staff borderline rude, very unaccommodating, pretty much everything we asked for got the answer "its not possible" 50 euros for a meal that wasn't worth 10 at a push! such a shame, my guess is its...only surviving because by the time most people have walked there, there are no other options.!
