At Chaplin, they serve excellent fish, seafood and pasta dishes at a good price. Not many restaurants can do this. Chaplin can because they don't have any more staff than strictly necessary, the location is not very beautiful, the building is simple and the furniture is basic. They are almost on the beach, but there is no sea view. It is great for kids, because there is a small, safe playgroud just outside the restaurant. We had dinner at Chaplin twice in 4 days because we loved the food. The staff are pleasant but very busy, and the owner is coordinating things and also serves food. Summary: great food and price, but not for a romantic meal by candlelight.

third year in a row we return for some 3-4 times in our 2-week holiday to Chaplin in costa rei. I share the concerns of some reviewers, waiters are in a rush and service maybe at times a bit rough but everybody always has a smile on the face and it may be noisy especially as large groups may talk quite loud, but it is also full of families and kids, the latter adding to the noise while playing in the small garden. The place overall is rather unattractive (you may think it is not worth a penny if you just happened to pass by), a small chalet-like building 20 meters from the beach, but food is in my opinion very good. The amatriciana di mare and carbonara di mare are the best pasta dishes as also are spaghetti vongole e bottarga. Among the main courses i also like the mixed fried fish and the mixed grilled fish. There are also special dishes that need be ordered 1 day in advance (they are written on a blackboard near the entrance). Instead of sebadas try the small (3 in a portion) ravioli di ricotta. Prices are reasonable and on the low range.

We went for lunch on a Saturday, very busy but we got our table quite quickly. It was a hot day and even if the tables are in a patio outside and they had a couple of fan working, it was quite a challenge to get some air moving. I would suggest an opening roof.....in any case a good cold Ichnusa beer helped a lot. The ambience is quite basic, nothing fancy but this is a place you can go with swimsuit and flip flops. We had pasta with fish (one with scampi and bottarga and the other with small octopus in tomato sauce) and tagliatelle with pesto that was fantastic as well. Good portions and good price. To finish the Arangiu the brother to limoncello. Definitely a perfect place for a good break for a day at the beach.

The headwaiter / owner was very unpleasant, rude, unprofessional and in a terribly bad mood. We have never been so badly treated to a restaurant during our forty years in Italy
