“Excellent food”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Although the place is not in the main road and therefore possibly not a scenic view from their Veranda the service from the staff is excellent and the waiter who served us was very pleasant and gave us the best advise on wine when we could not make up our mind and he did not go for the most expensive, indeed 15.00 euros very reasonable. The fish was of superior quality, although not cheap. Overall a very pleasurable last night in Castelsardo. Be prepared to pay around 100.00 euro for a three course meal for two with a reasonable wine.

“disappointingly expensive”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Just to warn you, this restaurant only serves seafood. it is in one of the little streets just off the main road and has a very nice atmosphere with white table cloths etc We had monkfish and prawns to start which were both excellent and a very nice bottle of wine (two in fact). the owner is very friendly and genial but maybe a touch over the top as he hovers when you are eating! We then shared a lobster for our main course - the price on the menu states €14 per hg so we discussed it with the owner before ordering and accepted that it would probably cost about €60. When the bill came we had been charged €110 - this made the lobster more expensive than Paris or London and that is saying something! This was such a huge shame as I really liked the restaurant but we felt that it was a rip-off and we will not be returning.

“It was "magnifico" ! :)”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Nice location, nice restaurant and very good food. They know how to make seafood. Just order taste of sea and lobster and let them tell you the order you need to eat... Also very good recommendations for wine... In other words, just go there and let them arrange everything for you :)

Thanks Renato.

“Nirvana of best food ;)”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We tried 'taste of sea' and 'rocklobster' and believe me it was one of the best experiences we have ever had. The service is informative and always with a smile from the heart. While eating, we were only talking about how delicious it was. If you are nearby, go there and taste the food from heaven.... Thank you, Renoto :)

“Good food view could be better”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

The food and the service here is Excelent but the view from the terrace could be better. We came here last year and the standard has not dropped.

This is a seafood Resturant only with fantastic deserts. We will be coming again with friends later in the holiday.
