My wife and I found this restaurant totally by chance as it was close to our hotel in Es Calo. We're so glad we did! The staff were all really friendly and the food was great. For me, the chocolate cigar served with montecristo smoke was one of the most innovative and enjoyable deserts I've ever encountered! We enjoyed our... More

When you are a celebrity, you do not eat in this type of place. When you are not, you have a difficulty to find a place. The place looks often empty. The Milano managers have an attitude that is right in the show business but surprising for Formentera. In 2014 the food started to be too 'complicated', the chef was... More

Me and my family went to Caterina Formentera this summer and I was particularly excited because of being the #1 restaurant on TripAdvisor. Pros: 1. The place is beautiful - really nice rural villa located right by the road so it was easy to find 2. The waiter sold the food as if it was going to be something spectacular... More

the best one- first of all owners that tell U story of restaurant, reccomend dishes, explain everything.They are center and heart of this place. Second food- new interpretations of well known Italian dishes like gnudi, tiramisu, panzanella. Good house wine and very nice idea of menu -we took vegetarian menu- starter, first and second plus dessert x 35 euros-person. Caterina... More

Restaurant at the base of the hill of La Mola, run by italian crew. Food was excellent (5 italians at the table) and inventive. Menu degustation was 35 Euro. Good wine list if a but limited, extremely nice staff. Not overcrowded even on a Friday night, probably because slightly out of the way. Would return right away, staff and 2... More

We went for dinner, which starts around 9:30 when the sun is setting. It was a mix of families and couples, but it was still very romantic. The decor is beautiful, and the service tends toward hushed tones and polite respect for the people who are there to dine. When the food starts to come, you see why. There is... More

The food was presented beautifully and the deserts were very whimsical and the food itself was delicious however it is very expensive and the portions are very small! so have deep pockets if you want to come here, however the atmosphere and setting is beautiful so will come back again when I have saved up!

We ate here twice and each time we were delighted. Charming, friendly service and really good cooking. We had the taster menus both times, once fish and once meat. Both are very good indeed. The meal is not cheap but if you want to enjoy good food and wine and a restaurant in a lovely setting then I would recommend... More

Fantastic experience in a restaurant with an amazing atmosphere! We were recommended Caterina by friends and were so glad that we tried it out. The bread that they brought out was GORGEOUS! We weren't all that hungry so we initially just ordered main courses. After we tasted the those we went straight to starters afterwards followed by sharing dessert! The... More
