The food is amazing, portions are very filling. The tiramisu is the best I've ever had. It's not cheap at around ���90 per couple but it is worth it as a special treat. Highly recommended.

It is a romantic place with wonderful food and smiley staff.

I guess you should make a reservation for Friday or Saturday dinner.

The food was very very nice and delicious. I do recommend the fish, especially the ones in "salt rock". Lovely desserts, the best tiramisu I have ever had.

The view is port with Tavolara island, pure romance...

Will definitely come back when again in Sardegna.

Fantastic menu, service, wine menu and location.
When you're in the area, a must go. But make a reservation!

We found this lovely place by accident, and loved it. You can eat cheaply with basic pasta with ragu, or very much more expensively, but always very well and with attentive and helpful waiters and charming owner. We cannot recommend it enough - do try it if you are in the area

We stopped here for a long and lazy lunch after getting back off the boat from Isola Tavolara. I must confess that we were slightly lazy and despite the relatively high prices decided to eat here in the obvious location rather than exploring Porto San Paolo to try and find something more economical away from the sea front.
Fortunately, rather than simply milking the location to exploit tourists, the restaurant is of a really good standard. The waiting staff are polite, friendly and welcoming. The food is excellent. I'm sure you are paying a bit extra for the location, but to be honest I don't mind when the overall experience is as good as this.
