We (a family of 7 adults and a child of 11) had dinner here. The food and service is of a very high standard. Our party tried many various dishes and everybody was impressed with all the courses. The owner even made two different vinaigrettes and a special spicy sauce for an octopus dish at the table! We were all... More

Da Lenin is a special place in Arbatax. Food is always good, the service sets itself high standards which is enjoyable. I wouldn't say that their salad dressing mixed artistically at the table tastes better if made in the kitchen, but it is a nice touch. :-) We always visit them when in Arbatax and it never fails us.

How to sum up De Lenin... great food, fresh and so tasty, best service, a night to remember. Its not the cheapest place to eat, but you are made to feel so special ... have the clams, they are amazing!

The service was slow and they are understaffed. The fish balls reminded me of something you would buy in the frozen section of a supermarket. The pasta wasn't particularly good. Overall, a pretty awful experience. In fact, probably the worst meal we have had in Sardinia so far... Sorry, but just not up to our standards.

Its a bit off centre and you dont expect such a nice restaurant to be there, but eating on the terrace is way better as in the crowded ugly city centre, but its definetly one of the best in the area. The staff is very nice, speaks english and knows about the food and the wines, which tastes great. Also... More
