I've been there twice with my family. Good food (both meal and fish), very nice view at the sunset. It's suggested to reserve a table, and, if possible, to go during the week and not in the weekend (otherwise you have to wait quite a lot for the food). Suggestion: spaghetti allo scoglio, fresh fish of the day and seadas.... More

Arrived at 8pm so we could take in the sunset. Lovely view though wall is a little high. Restaurant busy but were seated without a reservation. Food,service and house wine all very nice. Dessert was beautifully presented and really good. Would be hard to get there without a car as harbour is quite a way from villasimious town centre and... More

Nice and competent service and reasonably good food. Not on the highest level but the great location and view compensates for a lot.

I had tuna steak which was good but a bit rare for me. My boyfriend had a steak with amazing chips. The view was hindered by the height of the Windows but I imagine it would be nice in the summer when they have the windows open.

Went here for a lunch, staff very friendly, food was good. They do not serve pizza for lunch although there were also other guests asking for a pizza - ok I can understand that we were not there in high season - but is impossible to get a pizza in lunch time anywhere in Villasimius. They have nice menus, where... More

We visited this restaurant at lunchtime in October with our three children. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. All of the food we had was superb (Fregola, Fritto Misto, seafood pasta, bottargo with squid ink pasta...) as was the wine which they recommended. It was definitely one of our best meals in Sardinia if not the best...

We walked to this restaurant from our hotel, which was a pleasant walk along the side of the lagoon. We thought the menu especially the fact there was a set lunch for 15 Euros, was very varied and interesting. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was tasty, I had a beautiful piece of swordfish for my main... More

We have visited this restaurant by a recommendation by a local and it was a great experience. We had a reservation but it somehow got lost, however they gave us a table anyway and it was with a nice view. I would recommend coming here for dinner and observing the sunset (at 8pm), it is unforgettable. The food is very... More
