Friendly waiters with a sense of humor and every of our dish was ready really fast and all of them were delicious! Seafood was fresh and well cooked! So, if we come again in Cala Gonone we... More

The restaurant was in a beautiful setting with sea view and that was all that was postive. My husband ordered grilled sea bass but was served sea bream. The waiter tried to convince us that it was sea bass but after conceding that it was not a sea bass he was served a real sea bass half an hour later... More

I was really surprised to see the other comments about the food. I have just come back from Sardinia, following a lovely week in Cala Gonone. We ate at the restaurant a couple of nights and both times had really fabulous food and a lovely table right on the terrace. This little town is renowned for its fish, so we... More

I went to have a meal with a friend on a busy Saturday night, we only ordered 3 starters, it took nearly one hour to get served. When the food arrived it was not what I expected, the scallops I ordered came adorned with a shell, I thought this must be a good sign, then I started to eat one... More

It took forever to get our order and food, locals were definitely being served in front of us. Rather annoyingly they stung us 9€ for service (including a small child). And for the record a campari soda was 3€ on the menu, but they put them down as 4€ on the receipt. Music cafe was much better

Decided to go here one evening last week as it appeared to be a busy spot and also it was displaying a Tripadvisor certificate of excellence. The experience started off well.. Myself and my husband both had Caprese salad which was adequate. Our main courses were both terrible... I had monkfish which was tasteless and also not fleshy as monkfish... More

This is a busy place,it looks like one of the most popular in Cala Gonone, but is that just because it's in the guide books? We went there for our first night in town, but had a terrible meal. Calamari were lukewarm and the batter had lost its crunch - clearly not freshly cooked. Seafood risotto consisted of some shellfish... More

All the food that came on the table was pretty average, but the worst thing of all was our fish. It had to be sent back to the kitchen as it was not cooked well enough. They must have put under the grill (while it was a salt oven baked fish) after which it came back too dry. After complaining... More
