“Perfect location but overpriced”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Es Far d´Artrutx is housed in the beautiful homonymous lighthouse, and that alone testifies its idyllic location. Watching the sunset is magnificent. We had dinner; service was quick and staff were polite but not genuinely welcoming. We had two different fish dishes which were nice, and a dessert to share which was good. The restaurant is a bit pricey comparing to others; one surely pays for the location. So if you want to have dinner in a great setting, it's surely a great choice. But do except a hefty bill which might not be fully worth it. As long as this doesn't spoil your mood, the view is rewarding.

“Give it a miss”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

For the last two years we have stayed near this restaurant. Last year we didn't visit as we could see the sunset from our villa. This year we thought we'd "treat" ourselves to dinner there, prices arey higher than other restaurants in the resort. Oh how we wished we hadn't !!! The staff although polite were not at all friendly. The food was expensive and not good quality. I ordered lamb which I like well done but this was dry obviously cooked in advance and heated through. My son ordered chicken with prawns and got just that no veg or potato and there were no extra side dishes you could order. Drinks again very expensive. I would say if you want to see the sunset with a drink take your own go round the corner and sit on the rocks with everyone else far more atmospheric.

“Breathe taking!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Our 4 year old son adores lighthouses, so it was an instant winner! It is the most stunning lighthouse (even the toilets are pretty), in a superb location. The atmosphere was electric and although the service was laid back, for a gorgeous evening over looking a beautiful moon lit sea with a gentle breeze and a drink, it's fantastic! Would love to go back.

“Great setting and good food.”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

I have been to this restaurant twice, first in 2011 for dinner and second in 2012 for lunch. It is in a great setting and the food is good but more expensive than some places.

“Bad value”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

Prices are way too high, and food was not of high quality. For example: The fish was swimming in oil.
View is nice.
