Sieht nach mehr aus, als es ist

Restaurant Design and Location are very good. Due to the rebuild of the breakfast room at Villa del Mar we had to move to this location instead. The menu from our hotel was fixed. So everyday we ordered the same with scrambled eggs on top. Unfortunately not one day they managed to serve in... read more

3 days I paid for deck chairs and an umbrella and eat at the restaurant. Poor service rude staff. The bar however had a great vibe and was very cool

We enjoyed a great evening view at a quietening-down beach), and ordered margaritas. It did take quite some time (and the co-ordered sparkling water got forgotten in the meantime), but the cocktails themselves were superb and came with nice free 'nibbles'. We then followed through with dinner; our risottos were excellent, like the fish main courses. Staff was very friendly... More

Slightly pricey but good quality, excellent views and superb service, hence an overall fours stars. Excellent homemade ravioli and good mixed grilled fish nicely cooked. We would return.

This is a great beach bar, restaurant, beach facilities, on the main Cagliari beach at Poetto. The food in the main is good, the setting is lovely. The staff are friendly and lovely. What lets it down is the organisation/the management. It is often a battle to get orders in or delivered. We have been staying in Poetto for a... More

I have been here several times. The food is good - it may not be the best in town, but its salads are much better than the obvious ones you may have in other places and great for a light lunch especially in the summer. What makes this place unique is its location, right at the beach, with a wonderful... More

It is a nice place. Chill-out atmosphere, scenic beach view, comfortable lounge sofas. But the staff needs to improve. I have never waited so long to be served and they messed up my order anyway.

I don't know Cagliari well but was searching around for a place for lunch on a grey September Sunday. Most places I passed looked pretty battered up (in the City and en route to Poetta beach). Arriving at the beach, this was the most notably cool looking place amongst a lot of rather battered beach bars. It's a largeish European... More
