We had dinner here last night and the food, service and view were first rate. Highly recommended. I recommend booking early as the place fills up and getting a table with the direct (and possibly best) view of Positano is worth it. The fish is freshly caught that day and excellent. The service is superb.

This place has a great view but the food isn't good at all. It was actually the worst food that I had on my two-week stay in Europe. I told them I was unhappy with my meal and they made no concessions to see that I left happy. It's overpriced and a place that locals never eat at. The view... More

Walked by in the afternoon and thought their restaurant looked like a lovely place for dinner so we made a reservation for 8.30pm. The girl at the desk repeated back to us 9.30 and I specifically said NO 8.30 and she said okay. Turned up at 8.30 and guess what no seats for us on the balcony edge as we... More

... Or Stayed in this hotel if it was in a slum. Positano is that great and so is this scenic (an oxymoron in this paradise) hostelry, located shoulder-to-shoulder with one of Italy's top-rated hotels and not a huge step down. Perched high on the cliff which Positano is built into on the southern leg through town of the world... More

The hotel has recently converted their car port on the street above their hotel. What a view, probably the best in Positano, so glad they decided to utilise a wonderful space. This review is based on their new restaurant (we did not stay at the hotel). The staff were friendly, their food amazing and view to die for. Definitely worth... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for three days in mid-April 2015. The room itself was quite large. The staff was very friendly and helpful. However, the rooms are quite dated and could really use an update. The breakfast room is extremely odd. Although it has a patio, the adjacent hotel that is in front (closest to the water) has...

We had a wonderful stay. Location is great and the Staff is amazing. The two ladies that work the front desk were incredibly helpful, from making dinner arrangements to booking our car transfer to the airport. Would recommend staying here. Having access to their sister hotel is a plus too!

We went on a honeymoon to Italy. We spent 3 days in Rome prior to going to Positano. Rome was hectic and when we got to Ancora it was a huge relief. The hotel was beautiful. We asked for champagne to be in our room when arriving, and it was provided. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room... More
