A corner of beauty directly by the sea, run by Roberto Chelo and Claudia Schletti, a perfect pairing of Sardinia and Switzerland. The essence of a long work experience in the hotel industry meets here the authentic Sardinian hospitality.
The name Il Portolano recalls the passion of Claudia and Roberto for the many sides of the world, and the idea of being for their guests what a port is for a sailor: good refreshment in a safe bay.
The atmosphere is original and relaxing. The restaurant Il Portolano offers a Mediterranean cuisine made with passion where the utmost attention is paid to every detail, combined with excellent Sardinian wines.
This experience involves all your 5 senses: the taste of the food, the smell of the wines, the sight of the sea and of Tavolara Island, the sound of the sea backwash, the contact with hospitality.
Our guests are welcomed in Italian, Sardinian, German, English, French and Spanish.

Our chef Mario Mele presents an authentic Sardinian cuisine without renouncing the delicacy of art, re-interpreting and playing with infinite combinations. He chooses the best products of the island, the freshest fish and the Mediterranean herbs that bring out the taste of our recipes. He selects the best meat of Sardinian tradition, cooking it in modern dishes. The menu is renewed every month, always with original although simple suggestions. Our wine selection is mainly characterised by Sardinian labels, giving value to our local small vine grape-growers. Wide choice among wine by the glass and bottles.
