The best in the northern coast of Sardinia. Fresh fish, creativity, very nice people, amazing landscape. A MUST

I have been in Rocca Ja since 7 years and every season I found new creations by Giorgia and her mother in the menù. The antipasti is a must, as well as some combination between traditional sardinian dishes and fish/meat/pasta. Desserts are hand made and amazing. The "poker" (tiramisù/panna... read more

Entering Castelsardo from the east Rocca 'Ja is one of the first restaurant near to Via Sedini. Great asset is the exciting view. The menu has more specialties to offer than other restaurants in the area. Zuppetta of seafood is really nice. As well as the tuna rolls with cottage cheese! Prices are above the normal standard. That's why we... More

Not knowing what to expect in Sardinia I waited to write this review, but after having spent 10 days cruising the whole island I must say that this one is our favorite restaurant: original dishes, great view & happy service & afterwards a memory that makes you want to go back lne day :-)

We went there early, i.e. when they opened at 7.30pm...., very friendly reception, the starters (crudo and cheese, and a type of warm semula) were very good, the pizza selection outstanding, the house wine good and plenty for the money.

The pizza and pasta here are very good. The staff were friendly and helped us with our poor Italian pronunciation. The views are amazing. It depends on how busy the restaurant is as to whether you'll get a table with a view so book if you want a view. The local families come to this restaurant in their droves and... More

We walked up to this restaurant twice during our holiday. It's a steep walk up a hill, so it might be better to drive or get a taxi if you struggle with walking. Staff were helpful and spoke English. The food was good and the views were stunning across the sea. It was busy and had a lovely atmosphere.
