Incredible place. What had us coming back for both lunch and dinner was not just the amazing food and view, but the service we received from Asia. Ask for her, get the padellata, and you’ll go home dreaming.
Nice setting for which you will pay - this is reasonable for any venue that offers such ‘additional’ features. Food is average at best. Location on beach is lovely - probably better suited to romantic dinner.
However !!!! Staff and owner are very pretentious -...make no mistake this is purely a money making enterprise. They were not pleased that our kids only had mains that were priced at €25-30 each! If they expect a minimum spend then make that clear. Although you pay extra per person for the reservation and then a compulsory ‘service’ charge of 27%! But of course this was not enough .... when the bill arrived we were charged falsely for desserts that were clearly one price on the menu against what they tried to argue a price per head. When challenged the owner kept gesturing that was not the case. We are talking about a €90 overcharging that could not be justified .... talk about scammers!!
The setting is not unique so don’t be fooled ... watch out ! These places are out to romance you and then unscrupulously lie and steal from you!More
The cafe is very comfortably designed and set on a fine white beach in a protected cove with a knock-out view of Isola Tavolara. Unfortunately the €18 polpo was inedible (couldn’t cut it with the cutlery provided). The €25 spaghetti with frutti di mare served...in a copper pan was mediocre—the pasta was two minutes shy of aldente and the frutti were not all fresh. They were very contrite about the polpo and did not charge us. We didn’t mention the pasta. But great setting and service!More

We thank you very much for your review, even though your judgment despite the mix-up was so negative for you.
We hope to have you with us again.
The view from the table is breathtaking! Unfortunately the food did not meet our expectations, the fish and chips were mostly chips, two small pieces of fish and calamari. They mixed up the pasta order. Nonetheless it was still worthwhile for the view.
Loved the grilled fish I had at this place. This is truly a tourist trap, and you pay more than double for the food here, than in most places close by the location. The food is cooked really nice thouh
We paid way too much for what we ate which was really not much and not good. One of the waitresses told us that we couldn’t play a small board game with our children while waiting for our dinner table because they haven’t the rights...for games. I mean come on it is a game with our small children which doesn’t make any noise or disturb anyone. Plus we don’t play money with our children. Very bad attitude against families!!! Very disappointed.More
So you can have dinner at this restaurant literally on the sea with your feet inside the water with the great view of Tavolara. Food is good but prices are not cheap. The menu is limited. It also becomes a night club on thursdays and...sundays after dinner. If you are a couple, ask for the table on the beach, right next to the sea! Also, make sure to take flip flops with you and go before the sunset!More
