This restaurant is a temple to seafood. If you don't like fish don't even think of eating here, but if you do this is the some of the freshest and best quality fish you will ever eat in a restaurant.

We came to "Le Dune" with a group of 8 people in May, some of which have never eaten real seafood and weren't too much fans either. Well, they all ended up eating raw seafood antipasti and finished the whole menu, not even touching meat but only fish and other seafood. The charming personality of the chef and the high... More

This is a classical styled restaurant with chef Giovanni, a Sardinian native, he is used to seafood of the highest caliber. Here the chef can be table-side or in his kitchen preparing some raw fish. I appreciate his genuine passion in a town where there isn't much else. I recommend a visit there and enjoy his passion for a region... More

a bit out of the way, but would be worth going any distance - though you need to be a fish & seafood lover to appreciate Le Dune. No, it isn't cheap - but the owner and chef somehow combines the freshest ingredients in a concerto furioso of tastes; gamberi rossi from Sardinia and scampi from Istria; raw of course;... More

Been here many times and always looking forward to the next opportunity. Not cheap, but this is what you eventually pay for prime quality in both service and product. Highly recommended.

Le Dune specializes in fish and the fish they present is excellent! Various appetizers that in Japanese would be sashimi - raw fish - that is great! Really superb. Very nice covered outdoor seating area to enjoy your meal.

I love seafood & appreciate it when it is fresh...so this is the place. We had about 10 different courses that were so delicious I don't know where to start. My husband typically does not like scallops ( too bland ) but the chef told us that the scallop variety they use are from that region only. We tried them... More

Incredible Seafood. If you want a taste sensation go here and put yourself in the hands of the chef. You may have to anyway as there is not a lot of English spoken. Don't worry. Just go with his recommendations. We had a six course menu plus dessert, and just could not believe the quality of the fish and the... More
