We waited about 20 minutes before anyone even took our drinks or food order. Had long waits in between courses also. As we were eating our main course, it started to rain heavily. We were not undercover & had to carry our table under one of the parasols. Obviously it wasn't the restaurants fault it started raining but I would... More

We asked for risotto and it was good but overpriced. We also ordered a baked potatoes that tasted like plastic. The service was really awful, even though it was almost empty. It has a really good ubication but it's badly managed. Not recommended at all.

My friend and I visited the Movida as part of a motorcycle tour all over Europe. We'd perused all of the restaurants along the harbour wall area and chose the Movida as it was busy looking and the menu looked good. Initially things looked good, we ordered, received our drinks and sat back and enjoyed the world go by. The... More

Find another place to eat! Movida has a nice view of the Alghero harbor from the walls of the old city, but we found the food to be terrible. Especially avoid any shrimp dish, as our dishes contained about 60% shrimp tails/shell...and any remaining shrimp pieces were sliced in the shell with very little to eat. Very disappointing as other... More

Really nice location overlooking the harbour in Alghero. Excellent choices on the menu, prompt service without being rushed as in some places, good selection of wines and nicely chilled beer! Seven of us paid €210 for a really good lunch. Well worth it!

I am just back to Alghero after a few months away, the bars and restuarants have started to open getting ready for yet another season here which will go through until October when sadly this wonderful place will start to go to sleep for another 5 months. I spent most of 2013 here, Alghero is an amazing place to visit,... More

After a nice walk in the city centre my girlfrend and I decided to take a late lunch. Around 5pm a lot of restaurants are still closed and only handful of restaurants were openned (unless you opt for a pizza or sandwich). We decided to take only one course however we were a bit afraid to leave the restaurant hungry.... More

Lovely views and fantastic food but you do have to ask the waiters for service. May have just been a busy night. Definitely worth a visit. Would be great at sunset.

The only good thing about this restaurant was its fantastic location with its lovely views over the harbour, however they seem to think this makes up for simply not caring about anything else. The service was poor and the quality and / or presentation of the food was simply awful. I had a tomato, mozzarella and basil salad to start,... More
