We dined in a nice setting, a courtyard. There were a few mosquitoes, but we had spray with us.

We started with the mussels which were very good

We shared lobster with linguini which was good, but not as great as some of the reviews led us to expect.

For our main, we chose the grilled prawns and grilled vegetables.

They have a nice wine list with reasonably priced local wines.

Our conclusion was that the back of the house has it down, the food was great.

The front of the house needs some work. The son is a great waiter, but there was only one server for the entire floor, and she did not have a clue. It took more than 30 minutes to clear the table after the secondi. The excuse was that she was new, and untrained.

Get the service part down and this is a five star.

We dined here twice, and were served by the Son of the Chef, who was born and brought up in the UK, along with his Sister. The food was very nice, I had swordfish on both occasions and it was very good. The atmosphere was good, and the Chef came and chatted to us all after we’d eaten, and we were given a complimentary drink from him!
This restaurant was the nearest to our hotel, The Nora Club Hotel, and opened at 1930.

As this is the closest restaurant to where we we staying (Nora Club and Spa) we decided to try it out. The staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. One of the waiters had been born and live in England for 8 years and had excellent English - much better than our Italian or Sardo!

The food was very good and as expected, very fresh. I had carpaccio of tuna and swordfish and it was excellent, tasting almost like a nice salty prosciutto from Italy. My wife had the mussels and they were good too. For mains I had the grilled sea bass with a mixed salad which was cooked perfectly and was a decent size. My wife ordered a special of swordfish cooked in Prosecco with grapes. When it was a little under done for her taste they quickly cooked it a bit more with no hesitation and lots of apologies even though it was nobody fault.

We had an excellent carafe if house white wine which was good value.

Overall it wasn’t the cheapest meal we had but it was valued correctly for what we had and the service.

We always have a great evening at Lobina’s! The food is great, especially the linguine mare nostrum, which are absolutely amazing. Loving, efficient staff and the owner is nice and funny. We’ll definitely go back there.

Had a great meal but as it was so hot it was a little spoiled by all the flies. Had lobster pasta and it was very good. Owners and staff do welcoming and friendly. Good price
