Very good reastaurant. Need reservation at least 3 days before. Fresh sea food directly from the stand (what you choose). Food was delicious, staff very nice. English speaking. Possible card payment. Restaurant is part of Michelin.

Firstly, it is located along SP 17 with lots of parking space around, so easily accessible. Secondly, the food is fantastic and reasonably priced. It serves super fresh seafood and Sardinia styled bread, which is our favorite. Its seafood is cooked to meet our flavor and served under a good timing. The most important feature of Da Barbara is its... More

The restaurant was OK. I've had better and I've had worse. The owner is really cute. I would say it was overpriced.

Great food and excellent service. A smallish place just off the main road which seems family run. We loved the food (squid, fish and salads) and the service was charming. They look like they have a fine selection of wine - alas, I was driving. Oh well, next time. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

On a two week holiday we ate at da Barbara 4 times which I think speaks for itself. On each occasion it was apparent that the vast majority of the customers were locals and regulars which again speaks for itself. The food is not cheap, but seafood never is and it is fresh and well cooked. No fancy sauces just... More

Although the specialty of the restaurant is sea food, my husband and I asked for beef and pork. It was really tasty. I recommend it. The best was the the service, very polite and extremely helpful. We need the internet to find a hotel nearby and, not only they offered the wifi, but they even called the hotel we chose... More

Great food starts with the best ingredients, simply prepared, and let the flavours speak for themselves. The more you fiddle with it or complicate it, the more you lose. Kind of like parenting, where the beauty and joy is already in children, so our job is to get out of the way and interfere too much. This family run restaurant... More

Came here for lunch and it was not great. Food was bland and expensive. Far better food around than this! No atmosphere and can't have a glass of wine as it's in the middle of nowhere...
