We managed to try quite a few and quickly understood the concept all of them had: a set menu, most of the time consisting of antipasti (depending on the place the starters would vary anywhere in between 2 and 8 plates), which then was followed by two pasta-dishes (most of the time this would include the traditional Sardinian “Malloreddus”-pasta for example), followed by one or two meat-dishes (pork is a big thing here) and finished off by a traditional Sardinian dessert and Mirto (a Sardinian liqueur). This menu would vary anywhere in between 28-40€ per person if I remember correctly and we most certainly did not leave hungry.
I personally much preferred these dining experiences while in Sardinia then the normal restaurant that most of the time left us disappointed… A couple of our favourite Agriturismo restaurants were: La Colti, Miyaya and Li Nalboni but there are plenty if you do some research! I would highly recommend trying it at least ones while there to get this authentic and charming experience.
As for dining at a traditional restaurant inside the cities, I don’t have much to recommend I’m afraid, haha. But here are a few places I noted down during our trip: Osteria Madras Lentas (Alghero), Al Refettorio (Alghero), SardOa (Alghero), Paradise Bar (for drinks at sunset, Rena Majore), Calaveras (beach bar, Porto Pollo), Nini Vineria (wine bar, La Maddalena) and Dolci Distrazioni (gelato, La Maddalena).

If I can ask anything of you, it would be to please remember to pick up after yourself wherever you go. If you visit a town, city or beach, please remember not to litter and to bring everything you brought there with you back. It’s a privilege to get to enjoy nature’s beauty so please take care of it. It breaks my heart when I see other travellers leaving cigarette butts, plastic or any of their trash behind. Pick it up if you see it and let’s take care of these beautiful places so that we have a chance to enjoy them in the future as well.
