Well, this is the only gig in town so after a long trek from Vernazza I get that you are a bit at their mercy. But, hear me out... I rented a kayak for my daughter and friend to use from Beach Bar Alga. Thinking they were instructed to stay in the cove, I didn't fret that no lifejackets were... More

The beach was the reason we decided to visit Monterosso. Although we discovered parts to this harbour town which we missed out on during our last flying visit here, last year. We discovered that the town is well worth a day of exploring. Back to the beach ...the charge for two sun lounges, and an umbrella was €20 from 2pm... More

This is a great little place, food good and reasonably priced an Italian style toasted sandwich with ham, cheese salad etc for 5 euro. Salads really fresh and the ginger mojita so refreshing. It uses italian ingredients in innovative ways. People are great and it is right on the beach.

This place is great. It is a bar that happens to serve great small meals or snacks. The people are lovely and they give great service. The view is amazing. We went there every day during our two week stay, occasionally for breakfast which offered great coffee and things like toasted focaccias or sandwiches and always for pre dinner drinks... More

We stopped in here to have a glass of wine and appetizer...slow service...granted, it was a slow time of day and waitstaff must have all gone on break (2pm), but it was marginal at best...the view is great, of course, but far better bars, restaurants throughout Monterroso and the area!
