Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we arrived to be seated with a fantastic view of the harbour which we were not expecting! On both occasion we visited the service was excellent and the waiter patient with our limited Italian language skills. Fish is our favourite and we tried lots of it in Sardinia - this was by far the... More

We arrived early & were seated even though we hadn't booked, it was Saturday. There is a view from the outside seating area, right onto the marina! The wall doesn't obscure the view of the mountain range only the marina. Seafood risotto was made with pre-cooked rice, a no no in a restaurant, which spoilt the taste & it was... More

I cannot recommend this restaurant, it was overpriced, presentation ordinary and the views totally blocked by the cement balcony - what a shame as we had high hopes.

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
