If you wanna eat some fresh and very tasty fish you should go to L´Ancora in Portixeddu! The service is also very friendly and helpful. If you wanna reserve a table you should go there and ask the service team than you can enjoy a tasty meal near the sea and afterwards you can go to the Zelig bar for... More

I was first introduced to this wonderful little venue in 1999 and vowed I would return. It took until 2014 to keep the promise to revisit my old friends in Sardinia. The tiny village of Portixeddu with its gloriously unspoiled beach at the foot of beautiful surrounding mountains was a placed that had lived in my memories. We returned to... More

We popped in on the off chance and had a brilliant lunch: seafood antipasto and pasta with local beer and coffee to follow. Fantastic value and thoroughly recommended! We tried for dinner on the following night but it was closed. The staff, however, recommended a very acceptable alternative.

zuppa di cozze arcelle pomodore, black spaghetti with sepia, muggine in vernaccia and several bottles of Tuvaes white wine. Portions so big that you forget dessert. and the view and 70m from the beach makes l'Ancora our favourie lunch restaurant. we'll be back

This is a lovely little place in a tiny seaside hamlet far from the tourist beat. In summer the outdoor dining is provided under an airy open-sided marquee across the street from the simple family restaurant with lovely views of the sandy beach and sea. We ate twice here, once a lunch for two and some days later a dinner... More

This is a popular restaurant. We found it in Routard. Good position, with excellent view to the beach. During a hot afternoon, a good place to take a beer in the shadow. The fish is fresh and well cooked; "pastas" also. And the price was less than expected. Card accepted, unexpectedly. The toilets were clean but there is place to... More
