Relaxed place, great food

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... read 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.

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 the right order or bring the... More

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

It's sad to see some people say it's 'terrible' but it's the opposite - its great and the staff are very friendly and the pasta in tomatoe and basil sauce is to die for! And try the fruit platter.
