We have visited this restaurant by a recommendation by a local and it was a great experience. We had a reservation but it somehow got lost, however they gave us a table anyway and it was with a nice view. I would recommend coming here for dinner and observing the sunset (at 8pm), it is unforgettable. The food is very... More

We were 2 and we took an “antipasto misto di mare", a “tagliolini all’astice” and a “frittura mista” plus a small cake and a bottle of white wine (I don’t remember the brand, but it was good :) ), everything for a reasonable price. All the dishes were really good and the staff and the restaurant’s owner were super kind... More

I think they were having bit of an issue. We arrived to a not particularly full restaurant but it was clear that there was only one waitress. She eventually seated us and gave us menus. We asked the family on the next table if there was much of a wait for food, suspecting there might be. They confirmed our suspicions,... More

Very happy to have discovered this restaurant! Pizza, seafood pasta and typical Sardinian dishes were amazing. The service was very good, with smiling people. And the view is spectacular. Probably the best restaurant in Villasimius!

Ate at La vela twice. The first time we just dropped by after trying to find somewhere to have a late lunch on Sunday afternoon. No on accepted us. La Vila's owner told us that he could cook something quick and we had steak and salad. THE STEAK WAS DIVINE. The view is to die for and I would recommend... More

La Vela is the only restaurant in Marina Villasimius. The view spectacular. That night the service was good as was the food. Pizza and their speciality dish, seafood pasta, the pasta looking and tasting like a cross between semolina, risotto and pasta. Funny looking balls with a fragrant seafood sauce. Really good. For desert we had outstanding tiramiso and a... More

One and only restaurant at the Villasimius port... The service was very good! The food was delicious! We had amazing cold starters such as sea food salad and octobus salad... Pizza with zucchini and eggplant was absolutely mind blowing! and then came a delicious fish dish ... clean restaurant! Deserts are average!

Set next to the marina and very near the lagoon (with flamingos) and beach, this restaurant caters to well-to-do boaters, so the food and service are first class. We expected the prices to be high as a result, but instead they are average for a typical restaurant. We had a large plate of steamed mussels in a homemade sauce of... More
