We went to the Sardinia on our last night in Africa. After 3 weeks of touring we were all tired of steak or chicken and as a Vegetarian I was especially ready for a meal that wasn't an after thought. I had the spinach ravioli and it was wonderful. Homemade pasta and homemade bread--what more can you ask for. Our... More

Sardinia is well worth visiting. The menu offers a wide range of options (classic and the more exotic). The quality of the food was good and the portions large enough to satisfy a table of hungry men. In addition, the wait staff were friendly (By Namibian standards). Despite being busy, the food was prepared quickly and arrived hot.

We had one of our rudest encounters at this restaurant with rude owners/managers. The place is packed hardly any space to move around and the owners seem its ok to go about mopping and cleaning draging chairs around customers that are eating during open hours. Food is expensive for that price Id much rather go eat at the Stellenbosch down... More

Good italian fair. Unfortunately the salad at NI$ 90 is 90% lettuce. Grumpy manageress/owner. Get you in get you out philosophy. If you are vegetarian, it's okay - Not much but okay. Cannelloni was good with slight citrus taste. Service was fair, impersonal and quick.

First they only put half our order through, then deliver raw food, then the most artogant 'apology' from a kid in a senior position then after several attempts to get the bill our entire table got up to go to reception to ask for it just to be told by the kid he does not like our attitude!

The evening started well with good service and lovely starters. My and my wife's main courses were lovely but unfortunately our friends were partly cold and the staff did not appear overly bothered about it. Worth another try but they need to improve their customer satisfaction service.

I visit the Sardinia Blue Olive restaurant weekly. Food is excellent, the bread is freshly baked and service is good. The atmosphere is stiff at times. However the food and ambiance makes up for the times it becomes stiff. The food is their quality, pastas, steak, pizza's is out of this world. Sometimes your mouth get the taste like 09H00... More

It is always a pleasure to eat at Sardinia, in either of their 2 restaurants. The service is great which is unfortunately rather rare in Namibia. Food is fresh and tasty. Good value for money.

Went there a while back when there where very busy and only had a table with a view to the kitchen. This was so impressingly lively that for our next visit we booked the same table again, just for the view. Which quite impressed the owners :-)-O They serve basic Italian fare, but very well done, especially the pizzas, and... More
