No I would not return. The service was fine and efficient bit quality of food left much to be desired. The calamari were large and undercooked and served with no attention to presentation at all. The antipasti looked a little worn an the salad was shoddy. Go elsewhere.

Went to this restaurant on a Saturday night and tried to book a table - the 'host' ( I use that term lightly) was very rude - in fact ignored us and some other people who were trying to get tables. When eventually getting his attention - the restaurant obviously does take away pizzas and this was all encompassing -... More

Uhmmm several random pictures Nice old fashioned photos on the walls but salty food. But astonishingly, agony that some dishes allow extensive elbow-room to remain destructively... I mean quite literally, indefatigable inebriation... Well, it's been nicer than mcdonalds.

Lunch at this restaurant that comprised fish and shell fish based antipasti and a scrumptious plate of pasta with seafood and sauce with either a pistachio or almond base was a fitting end to a great Motoring holiday in Sicily for the New Year week. Service was also very good and the level of of hospitality was the cherry on... More

Several restaurant cluster near the crumbling remains of Avola's harbour, The Taverna del Pescatore is by far the largest and most popular with local families and parties. This creates a relaxed and informal atmosphere in the semi-open spaces behind the old stone facade. The buffet-style antipasti is justly praised and offers great choices. Plus a salad for lunch this would... More

We sat and watched sail boats, listened to waves crashing, and dined on a fine seafood antipasti buffet for 8 Euro, all in a charming restored seafront building. The service and house wine were excellent as well.
