“Brilliant, a lovely way to dine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We ate at a few agriturismos during our time in Sardinia and this was by far the best experience.

The cost was €30 a head (the cheapest) and consisted of vast numbers of plates appearing consecutively over a 2-3 hour period.

The location is glorious. Google Maps sent us to the wrong location so anyone looking to find it, the restaurant is about a mile south of Berchiddeddu on the SP79 just before you enter Sa Castanza. The views are stunning and the venue itself is delightful. Roomy yet warm and welcoming. The staff were all very friendly indeed and nothing was too much trouble.

The food was excellent. I couldn't fault the antipasti, and I couldn't stop eating it either! Cold meats, baked peppers/aubergine, ricotta with local honey, baked pecorino etc)

The secondi's were good although not excellent. The gnocchi were very good but the tripe dish didn't hit the spot. Tasted really good but the texture wasn't on the money.

The secondi was spectacular. Roast suckling pig, the finest I have ever tasted. Soft, moist and packed full of flavour, truly delicious. I consider myself a good cook and work a lot with pork (shoulder and belly especially) and this was right up there with anything I have ever tasted. We made so much noise about it that they came round and offered us more which of course we couldn't turn down.

The local seadas dessert was good but by then we were virtually bursting so could only manage a mouthful or two.

The wine that came with the meal was excellent, really very drinkable.

All in all a wonderful experience. I would perhaps recommend going on a week night to avoid the busier weekend trade which might slow up the experience a bit.

Not to be missed.

“This is a celebration of food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Don't miss to eat here. Be prepared to have a lot of food and to spend about three hours in this wonderful place. Exquisit local dishes and drinks (wine, water, digestiv) are also included. Our recommendation: go there for lunch on a sunday, because it might be too much for dinner (usually starts at 9pm).
Very friendly owners and staff. Be sure to book a table in advance, because it will be fully booked! Eating here is truly a wonderful experience.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We loved it all: the owner welcomes you like an old friend, the place is like a museum, the view is breathtaking and the food is incredible. The drive to the place is very pleasant, this part of Sardinia is beautiful - you can see the sea, the mountains and Tavolara from the road. The restaurant is within the vineyards and the olive trees. The staff was very nice and made sure we had enough to drink and eat. Conclusion? You spend 3 hours in heaven!

“sa crescia ezza is brilliant!”

I went to this typical Sardinian restaurant with my family and we all thoroughly enjoyed it from the delicious organic cuisine to the magnificent view from the terrace. Definitely a highlight of my holiday. Also, the staff where very accommodating.
