“All around really nice”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had a good dinner and enjoyed the restaurant meal, the staff, and the decor. We were provided a salmon carpaccia each upon arrival and then shared soup, roast veal, bottle of wine, dessert and espressos. All were delicious, staff attentive and did her best to ensure a nice evening. Cost was 62 Euros

We recommend it.

“Average food, good service”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

This was a recommendation by the owner of L'Ea Di Lavru as was described as a gastronomic experience. Fish and shellfish predominates. The first two pasta courses were very nice - well cooked pasta and tender octopus and shellfish. However, the next course was ridiculously salty and this was followed by rubbery tuna (the skate accompanying this was very nice). The wine chosen to accompany the meal was good but dessert we felt was the weakest part of the meal - the pistachio and biscuit cone was tasteless and served with what can only be described as molten ice - cream - disappointing.

The service was good (we booked a table at 2000) but there was only one waitress so I suspect the later reservations did not have the same experience we did. Total cost was euro 100 inc service.

“Scrumptious, sensuous food in beautiful Sardinia”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

This restaurant was an absolute delight and came highly recommended by Flavio of L'Ea Di Lavru the owner of the villa where stayed Porto San Paola, Sardinia. It is a beautifully restored small and intimate restaurant in the heart of Olbia. The layout and decor show real taste and flair. The service was attentive and discreet. Although famous for its fresh fish menus it delighted the palate if two vegetarians. The creative wonder of each dish (that kept coming and coming), the flavours and freshness surpassed all other restaurants we as a couple visited during our stay.

“Fooled”
Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

At the first night that we arrived in Olbia we asked for the best place of fish and seafood and they told us it's the best place for fish and pasta with seafood, but eating pasta there it's like eating air with a consistency no Taste at all fried fish instead of grilled price very high for this kind of service, and I don't think it's happened just with us because read already other comments similar. Never more osteria del mare. And never more will trust local people.
