When you first arrive and see Can Carlitos from the outside, it doesn't look like much. It has a somewhat boring facade that could just as easily be a fishing tackle shop as a stylish restaurant. Inside, though, everything changes. It is a beautiful restaurant and a beautiful setting overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The staff are fantastically friendly but it does get busy during the summer months so the service can be a little slow - but with the after lunch party scene the wait is part of the experience.
While the food is quite traditional at Can Carlitos, it does have a modern twist. The following dishes from the tapas menu are excellent: Codfish skewer with piparra olive oil, Octopus with “papas aliñás and red pepper and Shrimps with garlic - the fried Formentera lobster is also delicious.
Formentera is the smallest of Spain's Balearic Islands. It is less busy than Ibiza and its other near neighbors, making it an appealing place to visit. When there, Can Carlitos is one of the best places to eat. It is a tapas restaurant servicing traditional Spanish dishes.
