We ate here a couple of times - mussels and sea bream were really good as was house white. A bit more expensive than other restaurants, but service was really excellent

We had the king crab pasta (served in giant crab head) and clams and pasta. Both were delicious and we would happily go back to eat again. Service was fine, nothing too exciting - lots of families so it seems kid friendly too.

The service was good here but just as another reviewer said the pizza was fairly soggy despite the fact that there weren't many ingredients on it for it to be so. We ordered a mixed salad and it was also very basic. There are in our experience better paces to eat in Cala Gonone.

For a change we decided to eat here. The menu was similar to all the others in Cala Gonome. The waiters were friendly and the food was fine. Unfortunately there was nothing memorable about the meal that merits further comment

We saved this place till last as we read the reviews and saw that most of the tables were reserved. We were SO disappointed with the quality of food. Husband had chicken... Macdonald's do better, it looked like basic kids party food. It was more expensive than other places and with no sea view..... Really wish we had eaten again... More

Il Banjo is a restaurant that delivers quality day after day and year after year and with a wonderful and always helpful staff. The menu is well assorted and the dishes are all tastefully, including the pizzas. The wine card is good and I recommend the local ones from Cantina Dorgali.

We ate on the terrace which was very busy, nevertheless, the service was fine. I can not comment on the pizzas as we ate pasta and sea food, but the food was definitely good. Recommended.

We booked a table on the balcony (which I would recommend if you want to eat outside as there's more atmosphere). The pizzas were excellent (and better than il favorito, in my opinion) and the fish with tomatoes and olives was delicious. Nothing fancy to mask the fresh flavours of the fish. The tiramisu was also very good. Friendly service... More
