Food excellent, atmosphere questionable

Went here for dinner on recommendation, food excellent, although seafood a little expensive, but it's certainly fresh, ie choose your fish from the days catch.

I had pasta which was lovely and fresh. the pizzas looked amazing. Good service, overall very good. Atmosphere not great, quite noisy, and the music unsuitable (techno) for a restaurant.

The receptionist from the hotel recommended us this restaurant. We thought there is a catch - something touristic, but we were surprised to find a cozy place, full of Italians, great pizza, pasta and a fabulous Filetto Gorgonzola. We made reservation for 5 dinners in a row and bit any other restaurant we ate in Sardinia. Do not forget to... More

It's hard to tell the best restaurant on this trip cause all of them are amazing! Sardegna is a food paradise and this is just another amazing sardinian restaurant. Full of locals enjoying the food, no tourist crap, great staff... Don't forget to reserve in advance! They use to be full in the weekends!

This lovely restaurant is always full. But they do work after 12 pm and the food was really very good. It's better when you reserve a table in advance.

Delicious food and great service. The waiters are very professional. I like the atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant. I am in Alghero for a month to study Italian. I have "adopted" this restaurant and I eat here once per day. I feel very welcome. The owners generously gave me a discount. Grazie tutti al Pesce d'Oro! Karen

This is a very popular restaurant and you need to book to be sure of eating. The food was pretty good and at 50 euros a head including wine is ok for value. My real complaint is about cigarette smoke - but I accept that we are out of step. We sat "outside" which means outside the dining room but... More

Il Pesce d'Oro was recommended to us for its pizza so that's what we ate. There was a great selection and when they arrived they were enormous - completely covering the plate. They were also delicious with lovely crispy bases and generous topping. I had raddichio, bacon and gorgonzola, a new combination for me, which worked very well. One between... More

We had lunch in this highly recommended restaurant. If the food was decent (though I ate better sea food in other places in Italy!), the service was a real disaster!!! Extremely slow waiters, we thought we will starve until we will get our plates - though the place was not crowded and everybody around us ate, even the ones arrived... More
