Barbara's Spaghetti all'Aragosta (lobster) are the best I have ever eaten, and one of the main reasons we come back to this part of Sardinia every year. Thinking of retiring here, just to be near Barbara!

Absolutely amazing seafood with very affordable pricing. Don't count to get the table without reservation - Da Barbara is always full!

The place does not have a view but the food is excellent. Try the octopus or mixed seafood starter. The fresh mussels were excellent. I had the spagetti Vongole which was very good and the family had a lobster linguine. This place is well worth a visit.

I was there with my 2 year old son. Unfortunately we hadn't made a reservation, but it was exactly 7:30pm. There were no other guests und every one of the + 50 tables was empty. They said that all tables were reserved and that they couldn't seat us. That every single table for the next hour would be occupied is... More

Loved the seafood, it's all fresh. The service was excellent. Maybe not the biggest menu you come across but everything that's on there looks great. They specialise in fresh seafood and show you your piece of fish that you ordered before they cook it. The sea food pasta is also very good.

Excellent restaurant, for Fish and Sardinian faire. Family run, but all personal, were attentative and helpfull. Even when restaurant was full, we werent ignored.

Wine list from inexpensive to very expensive, probably as I felt a little overpriced.I asked for a glass... More

This restaurant is a staple for its fresh fish dishes. Our expectations were high and were met. We were lucky to find a table for four at the last minute on a Saturday evening. We were nicely received. This is a fish resistant and this is evident from the large display of fresh fish that you have right on front... More

We've been going to Sardinia on vacation for the past 10 years and after extensive research - Da Barbara is undoubtably the best for miles around. Top score in all departments!

We had been on the beach and were seeking somewhere for lunch, a better idea than evening meals, we keep getting lost. This place is an unassuming building on the roadside, so we stopped and went in as it opened at 13.00hrs. The staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble and the menu was great especially if you like... More

Don't judge a book by it's cover! Modest decor and lights a little too bright for my taste but the food is wonderful. My friend didn't like that there was shell in his lobster pasta but the flavor was still delicious. Family owned. Recommended.
