Food is decent but limited choice, service is sporadic

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

We went to Movida in March on what was a wet and cold day. Feeling hungry and trying to avoid the rain we diving into Movida with expectations of a decent lunch. The staff were extremely helpful and found us a table in what was a bustling restaurant. They were also very attentive and not at all pushy when it... More

We chose the Movida menu (menu of the day) and we got perfectly fresh cooked food. Believe me this menu is absolutely worth every euro. 6 seafood appetizers, spaghetti with fresh mussels, grilled red tuna and tiramisu as dessert. The recommended white wine, no big label, was lovely. Price/quality very good. Total dinner + bottle wine and water for 2... More

I'm surprised to see negative reviews of this restaurant as I really enjoyed my meal here. Was in Alghero for a few days and stumbled across Movida. We opted for the meal offer which was lasagna or spaghetti Bol and a glass of wine each for 12 euros. Have to say both dishes were lovely and made a nice change... More
