Family run restaurant serving mainly (but not only) very fresh well cooked fish. healthy and tasty Sardinian cousine. Nice and quite atmosphere, spacious. Not cheap but quality costs. If looking for more cheap food you can go for a good pizza

Large varieties of beverages are available. But considering food only sea food types are available. Prawns and fish are the main items. Pannacota (cream) was fabulous.
