“Very good indeed.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

There are a number of restaurants along this stretch of beach front road at Cala Gonone. This is the last one, furthest from the town centre. We chose the Costa Dorada because it has a tropical, indoor/outdoor rustic feel. The service was excellent – charismatic, efficient waitresses – and the pizzas exemplary. I had my usual local Ichnos beer on draught with a flaming hot inferno pizza. Fantastic. This was followed by a traditional 'Seadas' – a deep fried pastry filled with cheese and drizzled in honey. Recommended.

You must try it if they have it on the specials menu...Oh and wash it down with a Sardinian Cannonau. Delish!

“Service a bit pretentious, food good but portions small”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

With a nice setting, the restaurant offers good italian food in rather small portions, "a la francaise". The service is a notch above what you can get elsewhere in Cala Gonone and some may find it a bit pretentious considering the overall package. The wine recommended was a little too acid for my taste, but a good match for the fish dish. A good choice for a special dinner. If you are very hungry, plan for a 3 or 4 dishes, as they are nowhere near the size served elsewhere in town.

“Very average”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

We arrived with positive expectations after a recommendation from our hotel. We had a very poor experience but to be fair I must clarify one point first. There is a nice looking outdoor area to eat but the weather was cold and windy so they were only serving food inside - well, inside is in the basement, no windows, low ceilings VERY dated. The bread was stale, the food adequate but bland. Service adequate. Not recommended - there are heaps of other, better choices

“Very average”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

I'm not sure why this restaurant's got so many good reviews, it was our worst and most expensive meal of the holiday. My tomato/mozzarella pasta was really bland and the bruschetta was also quite tasteless and the bread was far too crunchy and well done which made it almost impossible to eat. We found much nicer restaurants in Cala Gonone.
