“Avoid. Poor service and value.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

The food was only warm and the plates were unheated.

We had wine by the glass and the measures were the smallest we have ever had.

The service was poor. The waiters did not ask if we enjoyed our food and seemed to lose interest in us part way through the meal. We waited so long for them to come and ask what we wanted for our pudding that we decided to pay and go.

We also felt that the meal was expensive for what we had.

A totally lack lustre experience and a big disappointment as we chose this restaurant on Trip Advisor ratings. Following a report on Sky News that Trip Advisor ratings were largely false, we will not be relying on them again.

Our advice. Avoid this restaurant and chose wisely in Olbia otherwise like us you will be sadly disappointed.

“Great presentation and good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2010

I ate here with some friends and was surprised at the beautiful presentation, originality and delicious flavour of the food. Surprised because in general restaurants in Olbia are not big on presentation or on originality. Would definitely recommend.
