Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Full modern italian menu. Everything we tasted was excellent but ridicously overpriced. Yet the plot and sunset views are amazing.

Lovely setting, if you make a reservation try to have a table first row so you have the best view on the sun going down The food was good, staff was very friendly. It is also possible to just have some drinks. What we found...a bit a pitty is that when you order an apero that you don’t receive some nuts or olives, The mussels I ate with tomatosauce was very goodMore

We visited Formentera for the day, jumping on the ferry from Ibiza. After spending the day at the beach, we were all very hungry and found this lovely little spot near the port. We arrived at 4pm and the kitchen didn't open until 7pm, but...we grabbed some drinks outside and had the most glorious view. The food was definitely worth the wait and highly recommend the homemade spaghetti with clams.More

Staying in the attached apartments, we had pizza while waiting for check-in. It's a great spot, well situated and a nice view. The food was unexceptional but certainly did the job, and the beers were cold, served swiftly and with a smile. The menu offers...a lot more, but we didn't sample the seafood and specialities, and so can't comment on the finer-dining options. But definitely a place to while away an hour or so in good company.More

A lot of good reviews, we must have visited on a bad day. Service was very good, too bad food was was not equal to the service. Pasta under cooked (not close aldente), too bad as a the flavour of clams was there, veal Cheak...not tender, again though, the source had body and flavour.More

Having travelled across by ferry from Santa Eulalia on a hot day to meet friends who live across the road from us back home it made sense to head to the first welcoming bar we found to catch up on wat we had all missed....Very relaxing, friendly enough service, prices a little more than on Ibiza but the setting is great. Good choice of food if that's what you want - but the choice is yours, there's no hard sell. In fact hardly any sell at all. Just chill.More

It's not cheap but the sunset, the gourmet tasting of the food, the decoration. That's what u work for! Allow yourself to feel rich as fu* for 2 hours and enjoy the best of formentera after eating nothing at the beach for the entire day....Instead of paying 15 euros for a frozen pizza just pay 20 for a decent meal. The guys at this restaurant worth your money.More

We really enjoyed our sunset dinner at the Café del Lago in La Savina. The view on the Estany Pudent is beautiful, especially at sunset. The starter (calamari) was delicious and very beautifullly arranged. The Pizza was gorgeous and the Cocktails fancyful. I really like...the place!More

Had a good meal here for lunch. One of us got a Calzoni and the other a pizza. Both items where cooked well and tasty. It is not considered a cheap eats, but is a reasonable meal. The environment is really nice and I was...happy with the service. Overall a good experience. I wish there was more option to customize the food.More

Love Italian! Had it many times in my lifetime, and I know how it should taste! Unfortunately food here was below my expectations. My calzone was burnt- as shown on the picture, and what worse had soggy bottom! Shame I did not take a picture...of my late later to show actually how bad it was. Even classic dish as pasta with ragu was far from good and tasty. To summary - restaurant serves average taste food and overcharging their customers. Joke!More

Dined here last week, very relaxing and good food. I had the hummus and crudités to begin and the presentation was brilliant! See pic! Then I had a spicy pizza all washed down with a couple of glasses of sangria! Such a lovely day!!
