“Perfect break from work”
Review of Il Sono

Il Sono
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$17 - US$57
Description: A new concept of Beach Club in Cala Sardina, Torreguadiaro, a semi virgin beach in an idyllic setting, which may be considered the best and most beautiful beach in the area, only 3 minutes from Sotogrande. A space to relax, listen to good music, eat, drink, meet old and new friends, and feel like in the living room of your own home with amongst others wonderful views of the Rock of Gibraltar and North Africa. A different experience to sample day or night, relaxing and/or sunbathing on one of our hammocks. Our food is Mediterranean with an international flower but mostly healthy and natural, always fresh and of the highest quality. Health starts with us and ends with our clients feeling on top of the world. We offer a full menu at lunch and dinner. In the evening the atmosphere is perfect for that special lounge / chill-out feel sharing a drink or specially made cocktail with friends and accompanied by good music and amazing tapas / appetizers, the latter on the house…

I have visited this fabulous chiringuito on two occasions this week, once with a party of three and on the second occasion with a party of five. The food and service have been excellent both times. Our guests , yesterday , were in heaven and believe they experienced some of the finest food that they have had on this coast line. I am delighted to have found it as it’s my “local” so look forward to returning frequently with friends and recommending it to guests and hearing their feed back. The aubergine, goat cheese salad, sardines, tiny fish (can’t remember the name) with egg ...... we could have spent all afternoon eating more but work, sadly beckoned. Good luck with this season to a great team. I hope to enjoy more of your hospitality.

Great Restaurant on the beach 50 metres from the sea. Il Sono is owned by an Italian/ Spanish partnership hence the name which is part Spanish and part Italian and means 'the Dream'
The food is superb with some of the ingredients like the black truffles and the buffalo mozarella being directly imported fresh from Italy each week. Wine is good and good value.
Expensive for a beach restaurant but if you want the best ! ! !

Service can be slow when busy so take your time and laze in the sun.

There are sunbeds in front of the restaurant which detract somewhat from the view

Seasonal only from April to end of October, indeed I think I was there on their last weekend this year.

Highly recommended

We enjoyed a day at the beach using il sono sunbeds and a lunch.

We were charged €5 per person per bed which is the going rate apparently. Probably worth it if like us you prefer a sunbed. Maybe a little more attention should be given to clearing litter around the beds.

Lunch was very tasty but plates dirty which I found off putting. Restaurant prices with no cheaper lunch options.

It's a very pleasant spot but expensive if you are just looking for a sunbathe and simple lunch.

Dear NrsFaz74, Thank you for your opinion. As always we take note of all what you wrote as a base for a continue improvement of our service.
Regarding our prices we are in the average of the area (considering that you are having lunch 50 meters from the sea) and we do have various food alternatives if you do want to spend less. Hope to see you soon here. Kind Regards

I don't know why I'm sharing out secret haven. We love the location and the restaurant is just wonderful. The most attentive friendly service and the excellent, fresh, straight forward food is perfectly prepared.
