Great Sea food restaurant

Hadn't booked and arrived at 7.30 as restaurant opened. The owner kindly rearranged table and squeezed us in as completely full! Recommend the mixed sea food for two- the plates kept coming , we had prawns, lobster spaghetti and a seafood spaghetti - the best restaurant in the area- but do book a... read more

We had been on the beach and were seeking somewhere for lunch, a better idea than evening meals, we keep getting lost. This place is an unassuming building on the roadside, so we stopped and went in as it opened at 13.00hrs. The staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble and the menu was great especially if you like... More

Don't judge a book by it's cover! Modest decor and lights a little too bright for my taste but the food is wonderful. My friend didn't like that there was shell in his lobster pasta but the flavor was still delicious. Family owned. Recommended.

Great and fresh seafood! Super price/value. Friendly staff. Had seafood salad (wonderful), ricotta ravioli (great), spaghetti alle vongole (best I ever had), soup of, if I remember correctly, scorpion fish, which turned out not to be a real soop but the fish parts with lots of tomato/herb liquid, potatoes and bread: yummy! Nice atmosphere.

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
