WHERE TO EAT
Ducato di Sisineddu Rustic fare in a secluded location where spit-roasted suckling pigs served with the less likely chips are king.
A thimble of homemade myrtle liqueur and a homemade biscuit will round things off nicely. From £20. SS126 7km, 00 39 078 188 967
Lo Zefiro This picturesque spot with panoramic views over the water is a good example of traditional Sant’Antioco dishes. Get a flavour by ordering plates to share – don’t miss the octopus and potato stew, and sweet ravioli served with Muscat wine to end. From £30. 15 Via Giosuè Carducci, 00 39 078 182 8014, ristorantezefiro.it
Ristorante da Achille Skilfully prepared fish in the centre of Sant’Antioco. Chef Achille Pinna is rightly lauded for his red tuna carpaccio, while touches of Japanese influence add intrigue to classically Sardinian recipes.
From £52. 82 Via Nazionale, 00 39 0781 83105
Rubiu Birrificio Artigianale Craft beer, creative pizzas (think spelt, rye or saffron-infused dough topped with bottarga, shrimps or swordfish) and a laid-back warehouse vibe await at this cool microbrewery. From £17. 25 Via Bologna, 00 39 346 723 4605, rubiubirra.it
Sa Ruscitta Surrounded by olive groves, this organic restaurant with rooms grows all of its own vegetables. Expect roasted suckling pig served with myrtle and potatoes, Sardinian lamb and crisp fennel, or freshly made orecchiette with wild asparagus. From £28. Isola di Sant’Antioco,
