We had a very similar experience to that described in the previous review. No menu-card, no wine-list, unfriendly waiters. Bad & expensive food.
It is a pity because time ago 4 mori resutrant was one of the best resturant in town.
Now they prefer to cheat pepole, especially turists.

As you may be aware, restaurants in Sardinia mainly cook a variety of fresh fish,meats,vegetables on a daily basis to ensure freshness and stock turnover.
Regarding the name tag on your table ''English'' you were treated as a special guest by restaurant staff.Even if Cagliari is the main city in Sardinia, Sardinian citizens do not have much contact with tourists except in the summer, therefore when they meet few, it is a special occasion and believe me you will be well looked after.
I 4 Mori is a well know restaurant among local people and I would hardly believe that one of your friends has been charged 300 euros for your dinner.
Wine is usually comlimentary and you can have as much as you want with your meal,IF YOU DRINK IT WITH MODERATION!!!
The average price for a dinner is 40 euro or less, depending on what you order as main meal ( sea bass, lobster, t-bone steaks are usually more expensive ).
Just to clarify, Sardinian restaurants do not serve food, buffett style, but they serve a variety of cold and hot starters ( usually around 10-15 ) and a selection of ''Primi'' ( pasta ) and at your choice a main course ( grilled fish or meat ).
Hope this is helpfull and main clarify travellers doubts.

We booked the 4 mori for the last day of our trip to cagliari, where my sister was studying. Having eaten in other wonderful restaurants we had read that 4 mori was the best restaurant in Cagliari. We booked a table for 5 for 8.30 and arrived to find a reservation on the table- not with our surname but just said "english x5 "- even though we weren't english! My sister(who speaks fluent italian) asked for the wine list and was told that the waiter was the list- so she asked for a description and the costs and was told that the waiter didn't know all the costs and wen't away to find out. 2 seconds later all sorts of starters were set on the table (about 10 for the 5 of us) none of which we had ordered. My sister explained we did not want a buffet but to choose the menu and meals, and that we didn't like certain seafood- they got angry and said that they would serve what they want and we would pay what they want....they removed the food and asked for a menu and was told they didn't have a menu even though there was one outside!! At this point, we had 3 waiters around the table not happy as we had spoiled the plan to put food on the table and then charge what they like. We made out apologies and left. My sister spoke to her friend who had a similar experience- they are irish and when they arrived 15 starters were set down, the 10 main courses for only 3 people - and the bill was over 300 euro.


My advice is this. AVOID AND BEWARE!- They specifically target the tourists and use intimidation and lack of understanding what ever you say be it in Italain or English- and then charge what ever they feel they can fleece from you.

We went to Liilico instead- such a fantastic restaurant called Lillicu- superb!!!
