“Best meal of my life!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

We stayed at the Lu Branu agriturismo and enjoyed the meal here on two occasions. It was absolutely scrumptious! The best meal of my life. For an incredibly low price were were treated to meats, olives, cheese, bread, two liters wine, 3 pasta dishes, suckling pig, stewed horse meat, dessert, fruit, aperitif. There was so much delicious food I devoured everything even when I could barely manage another bite I was so stuffed. The setting is perfect, on a rustic, classic italian farm. If you are in the area you must must come here!

“Best meal in Sardinia!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

It takes a bit of getting used to when you are faced with so many choices regarding where and what to eat in Sardinia. The fish is fresh but no visit is complete unless you've had some roast suckling pig as done by the lovely folks at a variety of Agriturismo eateries. La Branu gives you amazing food - seven courses of it at a fantastic price without sacrificing quality or taste. This is not a quick meal...and you should leave a bit of space or you'd not have any for the highlight - the pork right at the end!

“Lu Branu review- sep 2013”
Reviewed 28 September 2013 via mobile

We visited lu Branu after stumbling across it on trip advisor (you would barely know it was there unless finding it online first as its in the middle of nowhere just off the ss125)! It is not in the middle of arzachena as some of the maps suggest. We had a lovely meal from a set menu which was full of surprises. My favourite course consisted of a range of meats including suckling pig, ribs and a kind of sausage. We both left feeling full beyond belief. You must go with a very empty stomach if you are to do this justice!! Well worth a trip!

“Something really special”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

Lu Branu is an family owned an by multiple generations operated agriturismo. This food is really outstanding since its not only cooked but also grown an harvested in big parts on this farm. The quality is really an experience on its own. Since its not just the chefs selection of his foods but also the passion behind the growing and harvesting process.

The ambiente is also unique since its built of local stones and enhanced with old farming tools. A really fantastic place to enjoy a special dinner experience at an very reasonable price point.

“Nice value for money”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

Nice value for money for a great local cuisine! If you not take care, you eat a lot! They serve a lot of "Antipasto di terra" (salamis, breds, olives, peccorino cheese cream), 2 "primi piati" (gnocchi and raviolli with tomato sauce) and a delicious "porceddu" (small roasted pork), acompained by Vermentino and Cannonau di Sardegna. At the end, try the Mirto Liquor, it's very digestive and you will need it, because it's a lot of food!
