I've been eating here for many years now. Good authentic Mediterranean food served by efficient and friendly staff. We had escalibada and I followed with mussels in a delicious sauce. We also shared an ensalada payesa (the best on the island in my opinion) and I followed with a superb lemon mousse. It was more than warm enough to sit... More

It keeps always same high quality of raw materials and of preparation of dishes. You can try all traditional island dishes among them I may highlight the 'amanida pagesa' (farmer's salad).

I real,y can recomend Can Forn restaurant in Sant Ferran Formenters, the food fine dining, a very varied menu, and the service was efficient and friendly. The restaurant is cozy, nicely decorated, with only about 10 tables indoors.

I usually go there for the tipycal Insalada pagesa and the calamari en su tinta. The food is traditional, average quality and average service.

I've been eating at Can Forn for years now. It's one of the few that stays open throughout the year (well, almost; they do shut for a month or so in winter). The food is always good, and they specialise in typical Formentera fare, one of the few island restaurants to do so. This time I had the Xai amb... More

Three of us went here and had surprisingly good food. The location is a bit out of the way (not much) but the food was delicious. They also had free wifi which was helpful.

We liked the frita de pulpo and the rabbit with onions. The staff was a bit slow and the owner behind the bar constantly telling off people on the phone combined with abrupt changes in the music didnt make a great atmosphere - better go to vogamari 😉

Food was really tasty (probably the best in the island), well priced and nice portions. Service is just correct.

Asking for a good local restaurant some friends recommended us this one. The choice was excellent. We enjoyed the best "amanida pagesa" we had during our visit to Formentera. Then we enjoyed the fried octopus and the squid "pagesa" style. All the disshes were delicious. We will come back when we come back to Formentera.
