It was our first night in formentera and we saw very positive reviews of this restaurant. Although we reserved a table we had to wait 10 minutes to sit down. After we ordered we had to wait almost an hour before our first courses arrived. The food wasn't bad but definitely not as expected. The waitress who served us was a bit too friendly as she basically made fun of how our girlfriends were dressed. I wouldn't advise this restaurant to anyone and I truly hope that this was just an exception in formentera.

You're probably not suited to our restaurant customers,
you can not come to Formentera with stiletto heels and dresses gala at the Inn we come to Formentera in dubai.
Fortunately, the food was not too bad this is what I interssa.
Greetings and thanks

We decided to head to la Locanda during our trip in Formentera thanks to the nice reviews we read on this website. Directly we felt home in this little restaurant. The boss Valter, his wife and little boy are very welcoming, they don't speak spanish very well, but that's not a problem. They offered us to bring us a surprise menu and we accepted. We had Fish Antipasti (cold seafood salad, very good apart some Surimi sticks that were not necessary in this dish), then we had grilled gambas and also a plate of italian ham, salami, ... The main dish was seafood pasta. It was a huge pan with a whole lobster, tuna fish, little gambas and a lot of pasta. The dessert was a fresh fruit salad with some italian ice cream on top. To drink, we had a bottle of decent "rosado" wine and water.

Total price for two : 78 euros.

Apart from being a good chef, Valter offered us rental bikes at a very competitve price and also a boat trip around the island for a cool price too (we didn't do the boat trip but we keep the idea for next year)

Nice experience if you want to feel part of an italian family for a few hours.

English review: We were blown away by this place. All 5 of us were simply just looking for a decent place to eat dinner. This place looked like it would do the trick. This was by far the best dinner we had in Spain. We visited Ibiza, Barcelona, Mallorca, and Formentera. This was by far the best meal of our time in Spain...and probably of the entire 3 week European vacation. If you go to Formentera,..make sure and eat dinner here. Order the 5 course meal (might be 6 courses)...and follow it up with a shot of Absinthe.

Spanish review: Nos estábamos impresionados con este lugar. Todos los 5 de nosotros simplemente estaban buscando un lugar decente para cenar. Este lugar parecía que haría el truco. Esto fue por mucho la mejor cena que teníamos en España. Visitamos Barcelona, Ibiza, Mallorca y Formentera. Esto fue por mucho la mejor comida de nuestro tiempo en España... y probablemente de toda la semana 3 vacaciones europeas. Si vas a Formentera...Asegúrese y cenar aquí. La comida de 5 platos (puede ser 6 cursos)... y seguir con un chupito de absenta.
