Reviewed August 24, 2013

We have been here most years since 2008. Over that time, the beach has become less nudist and more commercial at the end nearest the car park. The beach bar here has tried to push itself up market-higher end decor and prices contradicted by the remaining beach bar ethos-including somewhat haphazard service! We'd suggest stopping at the roadside shop 300 yards before the turn-off and getting sandwiches and cold drinks to carry instead. Arrive before noon for parking. We tend to go to the middle of the beach which is still consistently nudist and also the nicest spot. This is not a great swimming beach because of the waves and weed and it lags behind the fab beaches on Formentera, however it is still a special place to be.

I went there every day during my Ibiza stay, but I understand that others don't like it.....
I was using the public beach in front of the restaurant and having my (long) lunches at Platja des Cavallet. It is a hip beach restaurant. If you are not in a socializing mood, don't bother. The staff is multinational (French, Italians, Moroccans, Spanish....). They are young, helpful but they work under pressure, and this is a beach club not a Five Star Hotel Restaurant. Be friendly and nice, interact repectfully with the staff, and the whole meal will be a pleasant experience (they might forget your order or request, make small errors, but hey....you are on holiday or not? Chillout and enjoy and be sorry for those who could not relax and enjoy a pleasant day at Platja Es Cavallet...

We have been eating at this restaurant for the last ten years and it really has changed a lot,This vist was our first in four years, the decor has changed to posh and white and the food is not as good as it was.We always have the lobster rice which was sensational but is now very ordinary indeed and three times the price it used to be. It has always been a nudist beach -and the restaurant was fabulous,chic and a bit eccentric with a difficult manager. All changed but still nice to people watch there - a pity all the tables for two are in the lower part with now view as such.You have to be four to sit on the upper level.
