Paco Prepares and serves some of the best food and wine in the Islands

My wife and I spent a couple of weeks vacationing in Corsica and Sardinia. Next to last day of the trip we decided to try Paco's for dinner. This was one of the best meal we had in the islands so we broke our own rule and went back the next day. The fish was fresh and prepared just right.... read more

With very good reviews on TripAdvisor we expected to eat well at this restaurant but it was not to be. Sea bream filleted in the kitchen was still full of bones (at Kings not a single bone was left in the fish), it was just warm when it was delivered to the table as were the roasted vegetables, some of...

Good atmosphere, lovely food & wine, easy to find. the staff were very accommodating and offered a selection of wines for our meal and the opportunity to taste before making the final choice. We were almost the last to leave after almost 3 hours of good food, wine & grappa :-)

During my stay in Alghero I had visit this restaurant three times with wife and young son. I was offered Piemontese beer, which was absolutely one of the best beers I`ve ever drink. Each time it was served with different antipasti (Bruschetta, Sardinian Bread with some sauce, Crisps and nuts) and every time tasted better than the last time :)... More

Both fish and meat dishes were excellent. The octopus salad was very delicious and the Tiramisu was the best we had in Sardinia (so far) - and we are a kind of Tiramisu experts ;-) Prices are fair and the food worth the money. We will definitely return.

We visited twice since we arrived 5 days ago such was the quality of the food and ambience. The antipasto is really good with very high quality meats. I has the carbonara with Italians sausage and my husband had fantastic sea bass. The house wine is excellent and the service excellent
