I highly recommend to make a reservation as this restaurant is certainly one of the hot spots in south Sardinia. Although language barriers we experienced an exceptional services with an amazing food. Additional wishes from kids are welcome and especial sea food is delicious. With the open grill area this restaurant is surely an experience you need to have.

The pasta for primi was good though the entire experience was ruined by the long , long wait to order and get out starters. Nice outdoor setting and music - ensure you order plenty of wine for the wait.

This seafood restaurant has a very diverse menu and good wine list but food is inconsistent. The shrimp for example were not up to par in my opinion. Service is good and price is reasonable.

We came across this restaurant on the other way back from Costa Rei . The food was well cooked and tasty and a nice change from the bland food in Villamisus.

This was the best food perhaps during our trip to Costa Re, though I thought the area was pretty weak in terms of restaurants, and Araxi is definitely not 5 stars. Interesting interior and different from your typical tourist-oriented restaurants that dot the area. There is no wall on one side, so has a breezy, outdoor feel. Rustic, old-style Italian... More

This is a very nice and typical Sardinian restaurant, the owner Andrea is very professional and helpful. I've been here several times and whether I had fish or meat the food was fantastic. Great wine available but the best dish is the suckling pig spin roasted on wood fire..

We went to this restaurant for August 15th, an Italian holiday, and so there was fix price seafood menu at €40, everything included. The appetizers were varied and very good, the two pasta dishes per person were huge!! What really did it for me was the grilled seafood (a fish per person plus shrimp and calamari). It was just so...
