Perfect location for people watching, the staff are attentive and will do all they can but will also leave you to eat. The traditional food on offer is excellent. I’ll be going back!

Sa Mesa was a great choice. All perfect: the service, the food, the wine and the clientele. The list of wine is well equipped even with 1/2 Bottle options. The Seadas are fresh and crispy, with the melting Sardinian cheese. Sardinian Pastas and Sucking Pig...More
