Breathtaking view of Castelsardo and good food. We have had the antipasti gallurese and pasta/pesce di spada. Very good quality and tasty, a nice dessert and free mirto finished our dinner.

As a plus you will have the nice view. Great variety of pizza, staff are very prompt, service is good. Better to reserve in advance as it is pretty crouded. We had a pizza with fries and curlugiones typical sardinian pasta which were ok. What can be improved are the tables and the plastic chairs. Price is average and ok... More

Because the food in our resort ‘Castelsardo Resort’ was terrible, we had search the surroundings for better quality. Fortunately that was no problem…..only a 5 minutes drive took us to Rocca ‘Ja, located on a hill, with an amazing view over the Castelsardo bay. We went there several times without reservation, although it was always very crowdy, they always managed... More

Really not sure how this it so high in the rankings. Mixed seafood platter to start, but next table had twice the amount... They were Italian??!! Massive tasty pork shank, pizzas good, seafood pasta ok. Fizzy house white wine, really uncomfortable plastic chairs. Very busy, not sure why.

Food is OK but not exceptional; service is also OK. Wide choice but it is not 'special'. Noisy, busy and crowded.

Great views over the bay and the restaurant is outside of the centre of Castelsardo so parking isn't a problem. The food was well presented if perhaps a little over seasoned. Staff were welcoming and friendly.

We visited this restaurant based on the number one rating in the Castelsardo area. I have to say from the outset, whilst we enjoyed our visit and the food, I'm very confused why the ratings are so high. The views overlooking the sea are lovely and if you're lucky enough you can be seated so that you can see sunset... More

We visited this place because it was rated 1st in Castelsardo, but were dissapointed. We booked ahead and got a nice table, with a good view of Castelsardo, but that's the only pleasant thing this restaurant has to offer. Our seafood apetizers were well presented, but did not taste good. We had trouble finishing then because the flavours were not... More
