Sheraton, Nuna al Sole, Porto Cervo, Sardinia, Italy

Day into night – the essence of easy Mediterranean hospitality

When the sun sets over the restaurant on this smart harbour piazza, life changes gear. By day, Nuna al Sole is a shaded neighbourhood café; by night, a starlit destination for music and dining. Easy, because our relaxed Mediterranean design allows for daily switches in tempo.

This simple and welcoming café has a timeless, weathered look: wood, leather, cane, and sun-bleached terracotta. Details, such as the rough-hewn menu board and gauze-wrapped patio lanterns, could be the work of a local artisan. Inside, the timber beams and whitewashed plaster extend to the bar and kitchen for a complete Mediterranean experience.
