I had a great meal here! Made reservations and had dinner outside, overlooking the boardwalk and beach. The food was delicious and well priced. The pasta was great and so was the seafood. Please go here :) Very romantic

Great restaurant, for sure it is the best in town. Good price and delecious food. One of the best ever tried. Uno tra i migliori ristoranti mai provati della Sardegna. Di sicuro in città è il top.

We ate dinner 3 times at this restaurant. Food is tasty and hearty. Portion sizes are big. The quality of restaurants generally in Cala Gonone leave much to be desired, but this place serves up quality and delicious food. Recommend the pizzas and the grilled fresh fish.

We ate 3 times at Il Banjo as we could not fault the food... It is a family friendly simple restaurant that does Italian food the way it should be done. Unfortunately as 2 Aussies who grew up by the ocean we were disappointed in the other restaurants we visited in Cala Gonone, mostly with the seafood so we had... More

It opened at 17:30 (couldn't find that anywhere). And we sat down on the lovely terras. They served bread together with the usual round crunchy stuff and both were already tasting better than we have had so far. Then we got the traditional bruschetta, which was really really exquisite. My boyfriend took a pizza with artichoke and olives and champions,... More
