OK - ish

The staff were very good and friendly in this restaurant. With a splendid setting on the walls of the old town overlooking the sea, this location couldn't be beaten. It's a bit pricey for the quality of the food, and the dish of Ravioli was decidedly small. The local wine was well chosen. OK - ish.

My partner surprised me on holiday by booking this restaurant for our anniversary. We went twice during our time in Alghero. Both time we had perfect meal. We watched the sun set and people watched. Can't wait to visit again

The place is set in a great location in the old town and looks nice, but that is all about it. The food is mediocre and the service unprofessional. It is a standard place for tourists, without management and client care. There are so much better places in the neighborhood.

The decor is simple and elegant. We had to wait about 20 minutes but we went to have cocktails and in the meantime they prepared a table. It... More

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.
