Alex and Dani will welcome you to their cozy, romantic little restaurant on the island. They offer a different Menu, with some delicious dishes inspired in the italian and Mediterrenean cuissine. A place in which you will enjoy a very nice dinner in a beautifull surrounding and feel at home.

I went to this restaurant last night and I was quite disappointed... The ricotta and spinach pie was very plain, not tasty at all. The tuna tartare was so salty that I couldn't eat my dish. It didn't even taste like fish anymore. I know soy sauce is salty but in this case it was not eatable.. The meat used... More

Very high quality sophisticated food presented in a very nice way. The staff and chef Angelo are from Toscana and you can see that in the menu. The servings are very generous. One of the best places to eat on the island. .

Can Gavinu is a bit of a landmark restaurant, being on the main road from San Francesc to San Fernando and having been there for years. It seems to change hands every few years and has had a mainly Italian tone for the last decade or so. Interestingly, albeit digressively, I bumped into a lady at a restaurant in Courmayeur... More

3 courses with a 25 euro bottle of wine 123 euros. Location is not great but the restaurant itself is very well done out with a rustic feel. The beef carpachio at 15 euros although good was overpriced the main courses however were better value. The service was good.

I saw the review of the others and was keen on trying out Can Gavinu after tryiing almost always the same menu in other restaurants. With the map on the restaurant site it was showing somewhere else and I almost had given up to find this place. Though by chance, I found it when I was on my scooter! It... More

Chanced upon it while riding our scooter during our fabulous stay in Formentera. Struck by the exterior. Romantic candle light atmosphere, warm welcome of the girl who served us, describing and suggesting what to choose in the menu. The goat's milk cheese with honey and sesame seeds was absolutely delicious! But there is much more.... Graziella and Roberto - August... More
