Wonderful view from the outside area. Excellent food. Promptly delivered. But our waitress had a chip on her shoulder. Cold as ice. After the meal we asked about the availability of a taxi. She said there were none. Taxis don’t run on Sunday, she said....More

A little lost on the marina of Bosa, this is a great place with fine food (a mix of traditional and more sophisticated dishes) at a very reasonable price. The view overlooking the beach creates a great setting too. A must-go if you visit Bosa.

The cuisine in essence is very sophisticated. The chef tries to interpret Sardinian cuisine in a modern way. The lobster spaghetti and octopus/fennel were great. The ambience needs getting used to. It's got a nice view, though.

They serve high quality food in this restaurant with terrace on the beach and seaview. The fish pasta and risotto were high level, and so was the dessert. The staff was nice and friendly. Prices are good. I would recommend people to go.

Had a wonderful experience at Chelo tonight. The tuna carpacio and lobster pasta was fantastic. Must also mention the great respect and service to our three children with various food requests. Well worth a visit!

Bosa marina is quiet, no class resturants, cafeteria, pizzerias ok. Cheol is better than the highest recommended in Bosa city. Very good.

Stopped here, on vacation, while driving from Alghero to Cagliari (beautiful sight seeing road btw). A dozen tables on a nice covered terrace with nice view on a beach. Really excellent, I was blown away by the fried pulp.
