“Lived up to expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We went to Pesce d'Oro after looking at Trip Advisor and also after a recommendation from one of the bars in Alghero. We booked that day for the evening slot, which was just as well as come evening it was packed. (We have been back since and couldn't get a table in late November!) The service was excellent, food delicious and wine recommended by our waiter was exceptional and not pricey. Excellent on all counts. There were a lot of locals eating there including other restaurant owners who were shutting up for the winter and taking their staff out. That counts as a pretty good recommendation in my book!

“Lovely fresh fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

My wife asked what the fish of the day was, the waiter said he would get the fish. We thought he meant he would find out, but no, he came back with a tray of fresh fish to choose from. He was very knowledgeable about each different type of fish. The fish was very nicely prepared, we had a great meal.

“The best food I've eaten in Alghero”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

This is by far the best price to quality restaurant I've eaten in Alghero. It is not by chance that all the local people come to dine here. Pastas are fresh as is the local caught fish. The pizzas, from wood burning ovens are HUGE, they come over the plate. Also, service is friendly and casual. A great place to hang our with family, friends or even couples. I can't wait to eat here again. Also, it's really cheap. A huge pizza about €8, pasta fish dishes €9. If you eat on the Ramparts it will cost about €5 euros more for the same dish.
This place gets very busy so you MUST reserve a table in advance.
