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.

So happy to see that this exceptional restaurant is still here, serving the most amazingly delicious paella and other treats. Our black squid ink paella was as tasty as ever, and so fun eating right out of the pan. Starter of sea bass totem was...bursting with flavor. Capped off with a key lime pie so authentic, and good enough to rival the best at Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami Beach. Service was friendly, professional and helpful. Lovely atmosphere. LOVE this place. Consistently wonderful.More

Found it on TripAdvisor and good reviews. Got there and weren't convinced it would be good from outside but the inside seating is amazing. On point for decor and cleanliness. Great service and the hostess Pili is lovely. Along with her husband they are a...great team It is set in an outsie covered boardwalk space which is great. A new canvas cover keeps it very warm and the colour scheme fits the mediterranean location. The service was perfect and the paella amazingly good. We reserved at the door an hour earlier and it was completely full at 930pm so book ahead! Realy good vibe. Home made lemon pie excellent. And toilets lovely and clean! Out of the way but well worth a visit!!More

It was so much fun, we came in May and got served by Pili who steered us to the sea bass to start, a Mozerella tomato basil oil and sea bass medley of taste, followed by the lobster paella. Honestly would say a must if...you’re visiting - super friendly, very good value and incredible taste, atmosphere and wine 5/5. Thank you Peli!More

We visit Formentera every year, but have only jus made it back after a two and a half year hiatus, due to Covid travel restrictions. It can be difficult to reserve a table at La Mariterranea, due to its reputation and relatively small size. We...were lucky enough to be able to book a table for a Thursday evening. On arrival, the gentleman who greeted us ( the owner?) asked if we are English. When we said yes, he walked us to the kitchen hatch area to meet the chef who turns out to come from Somerset, although he has been working and cooking in Spain for many years! After a pleasant chat, we were shown to our table, under the stars, in the outside area. We both opted for the sirloin steak with Iberian ham, which was cooked to perfection. This was followed with the cheesecake which was delicious. The wines were reasonably priced and we enjoyed a good bottle of Rioja. One of the main strengths of this restaurant, aside from the cooking, is the relaxed attitude of the owners. At no point did we feel rushed to vacate our table nor pressured to over-order, like in some other establishments. When we asked for our bill, we were given some Hierbas, as is traditional, before going on our way. The price was reasonable for the standard of cooking, ingredients and overall ambience. We would love to have revisited and to have tried one of the fish dishes ( me, not my partner, who will not eat fish!) or paellas but we ran out of days. We are back next spring and will definitely be visiting again!More

We ate the best paella with pork and asparagus. The staff is really friendly even though it is not too easy to book a table (we suggest to call some days before you intend to go there). The natilla with vanilla and cinnamon is special!...The place is small but relaxing. The prices are on average.More

This quaint little restaurant located in the heart of Formentera (Sant Ferran de Ses Roques) with its lovely indoor patio, the busy outdoor terrace and enchanting staff has my heart!! The owner recommended we get the “Tostas con Anchoas” as a entree, if you’re up...for something new, try it cause you won’t regret it. We later ordered an “Arroz Negro” and let me tell you, the fresh fish, the perfectly cooked rice and the exquisite family recipe for alioli made this dish one of the most memorable ones from our trips to Formentera!! You will want to keep some space for the dessert cause you wouldn’t want to miss out on the owner’s homemade treats. You might have to make a reservation at least a day before going as it’s always full. This restaurant and its wonderful staff deserve so much more than 5 stars and there’s no doubt that I will be coming back very soon!!More

All the food we tasted at this small restaurant has been more than amazing. The waitress was very nice (I think she is the owner, you can tell she really wants you to feel at home). We ordered some starters like prawn and scallops carpaccio,...tomato salad and some fritters and the we had paella, which was absolutely superb. Will definitely come back next year!More

I’ve discovered this place a few years ago and it’s a mandatory stop for me every time I am in Formentera. The place is small and cozy and it makes you feel like at home, especially for the couple that owns it which is the...best in making you feel at ease all the time. Food is awesome, the best paellas I’ve had in my life and they have a full list of them that can satisfy everybody’s tastes. Very good choice of local wines, local appetizers and delicious home made desserts, and also a list of alternatives to paella for those that don’t want to have it (you crazy people 😜). The bill is definitely spot on as well: prices are totally aligned with the quality of the food and a bit lower than the average of the island. You can’t leave Formentera without trying La Mariterranea!More

Well after reading the below I felt I had to pay this place a visit!! There are many reasons to visit formentera but for me I’m going to make this another, if you enjoy a real food experience then look no further, the place is...stripped back laid back and just let’s the food do the Talking. The host / owner if I remember correctly was Tilly/billy who’s vibrance and hard work only adds to the experience I shan’t say no more apart from every dish stands out we will definately be returning. Ps the chef is English much to our surprise and a credit to the culture thanksMore

You cannot go wrong here! The worst: The fried assortment of xipirones, calamari rings etc was a little scarce (based on my spanish standards). The best: Paellas and rices generally are top notch, even by spanish/ valencian standards. Top notch desserts. I think they are...valencian, which also might explain why they know rices.More

We loved this little and cosy restaurant. Paella is really delicious. Reasonable prices for quality. We would like to eat again that paella, but it was fully booked (we still waited on a standby list, but we had no lucky to come back). The deserts...were also delicious. The best place in town, worthy your visit and book in advance.More

Very friendly service, an amazing menu specialising in various takes on paella (we had the ox tail, carrot and potato - call ahead of you want to book the chicken and rabbit). The key lime pie and local Formentera wine were worth the visit alone....Book ahead if you can, the terrace is fine but the view is just of the toad, ask to be sat in the garden if possible but we sat out the front and still had a great time.More
