“No Meat now!!!!????”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

The location is simply charming, the staff however were far from it, me and my partner arrived at approximately 10pm which in most countries is not particularly late to dine, as most restaurants seemed reasonably busy up till midnight with ease, I am not one for sea food however my partner is, we didnt think this would be much of a problem as there were several salads or meat dishes I could choose from, how wrong could one be....on ordering the fillet steak i was looked at with what could only be described as utter disgust, the waiters response was that 'meat was longer available' , so in a state of shock I ordered a ceasar salad, in my ignorance thinking by 'meat' the waiter meant steak not literally no meat of any description. The waiter then left the table and came back form the kitchen to say that 'no meat is no available' no pleasantries, apologies etc just a blank expression. we had already been served wine we'd ordered , and water that we hadn't, so asked for the bill as it was clear our custom was not welcome, they did in fairness graciously let us leave without payment, however the whole experience had been quite embarrassing, to put in perspective I have dined at Claridges, the Ivy etc and understand the importance of dressing for the occasion and acting in accordance with ones surroundings so could have understood if we'd hav held our knives and forks upside down and had dared to enter with a tracksuit and logo endorsed sports top, I deduced the only explanation could have been that they wanted to rid themselves as much of their fresh fish before the night was out. very dissappointed in the whole experience especially after so many high ratings.

“Great fresh fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

This restaurant is situated on the harbour of Alghero, right on the water with fantastic views. We arrived with no reservations at around 9pm (although I would suggest trying to make a reservation), and were able to be seated inside by the window. The restaurant is very open and airy. We were presented with the fresh fish of the day on an ice tray, which included a giant lobster. The service was excellent, and the seafood was fresh. I would suggest ordering a side salad with the catch of the fish as the white meat does become quite repetitive. Overall however a great place.

“REALLY FRESH FISH”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile


Over the last 12 months this place has become very successful and is now always full in the evening. Good location, fantastic at sunset, good fresh fish. The fish of the day is actually bought by the owner every morning. I've just polished off a dish of three good size grilled red mullets for lunch, they were simply fantastic, so fresh and cooked to perfection.
Choose a fish and have it cooked your way but don't miss the cod mousse (with a little olive oil added on top) or the grilled octopus on fennel cream as starters. If in doubt about the wine order Is-Argiolas and enjoy your meal.
A bit expensive but worth it. Give it a try, be patient with the service if it's full and you won't be disappointed!
