People who wrote that this place is overpriced understand NOTHING in life! You pay the view, the wonderful atmosphere of Taormina, the magic of the moment, the saxophonist playing romantic music or the pianist, which make the staying simply special. It is like sitting in a cafe' in Navona Square in Rome or in San Marco Square in Venice, you... More

In Sicily we had relaxed and had felt the people nice and the prices reasonable. This place jolted us back to our sense's and put us on guard, which was a shame as everywhere else in Sicily had been great. Huge rip off, 11.50 Euros for drinks that are 3 everywhere else. Not asking for menu first was our mistake.

Went in for a drink. Just had the one and left. €7.50 for a local beer. Stayed away the rest of my trip. Enough said

First time in my life I wanted to hit the waiter, he was very impolite, but getting customer is too easy for them because of the view. dirty place, way too expensive compared to other places in Taormina, which is not cheap. I will never go there again and I warned you!

The one star is for the view. The place is way overpriced and the snacks we had were all substandard.

As many we went to this place for it's incredible view. But that's all it is and we should have stayed away from it : prices far too expensive, poor quality food (nothing but industrial), arrogant and cold waiters. Well enjoy the view from the place and get lunch / a drink elsewhere !

I went for lunch. It's supposed to be an historic cafe, visited by various luminaries in the past. The staff are friendly and a little ingratiating but the food is far too expensive for what it is: Euros 20 or a classic salad. The menu was not varied or exciting. Small portions and the parmesan was grated, not even shaved.... More

Far too expensive. Granted the view is good but its not worth 9.50euro for 330ml of Guinness. Place is virtually empty every night and I'm not surprised with the prices they charge. Food portions are very small too.

The views from the outside seating area are fantastic and it's a great place to people watch as it's situated in one corner of the busy main square of Taormina. It was a little pricey for drinks (€6.30 for a local beer and €4 for a Sprite - you can find the same elsewhere for around €3 and €2 respectively).... More
