Situated on a busy tourist walking route on the sea front in old town Alghero, getting a table without a reservation is a challenge. We were accomodated late one evening, whilst they were very busy. A table was cleaned and made available and service begun. The restaurant was quiet dark, eventually our table was candle lit. Waiting staff were very... More

On the harbour side. This restaurant has excellent service. It's not the cheapest plCe to eat and a meal for 2 with winne (there is no house wine) will set up back €60 or more, but the food is good and the atmosphere excellent.

The location is great, the food is good but there is a limited choice. The service was a bit abrupt and the food did not arrive together.

Had a great meal at Movida. The staff were very pleasant. The food was well prepared , presented and tasted delicious. I had lasagne as a main course and it was probably the nicest lasagne I have ever had. My husband had the fish of the day which was a very meaty sea bream ...cooked beautifully and flavoursome .

Our meal was very mediocre, and my husbands meat pizza, had no sign of pepperoni or any other meat at all.The worst meal of our entire holiday and... More

My wife and I went there last night. We ordered things, that was posted outside the restaurant, probably today's specials, and the waiter seemed extremely annoyed, probably because both dished included a glass of wine, and we had just ordered half a bottle of wine. That didn't leave a good impression, also because at that time, we were the only... More

We went with friends and had a lovely evening, it would be a great environment for family and friends of all ages. We had an assortment of different foods. All of the food was incredible...very fresh swordfish with vegetables, delicious Mare Movida pasta, savory ravioli, and incredible deserts! Would definitely recommend choosing Movida as your next dining choice!

Four of us had dinner at this picturesque restaurant on the city wall and it was fine. The starter of Salumi e Formaggi (14euro) was excellent. Two of us had grilled tuna as a main course, it was sliced thin and came with a small serving of grilled vegetables (18 euro). We had Seadas for dessert, which was a warmed... More
