Breakfast by the water's edge

We were staying at the nearby B&B which covered the cost of our breakfast each morning. The freshly-squeezed orange juice is yummy! Staff are nice but the weather wasn't great (lots of rain) and the place was very quiet most of the time.

I went here only yesterday, 13th November 2015, and ordered fish and chips. I could not believe that this restaurant is at the port and the marina near by, and guess what? They served fish from the freezer with breadcrumbs, and for what you get it is the most expensive meal I had in Sorrento and the worse. Also the... More

Over the last four years, we've been here many times, and until this year, have enjoyed it. The view is spectacular and the staff, in particular young Mario, who welcomes people to the restaurant, are good. But this year, we were sadly disappointed. The evening menu is very limited (different from previous years), and we were practically 'told off' for... More

Amazing position on the Harbour, we sat right by the water and it made our visit very beautiful. The service was excellent and we were never rushed from the time of arriving & ordering to finishing and paying. Staff very Friendly.

The reason we went to this restaurant was the shuttle service they provide from Sorrento hotels. Nevertheless, the location (on the waterfront at the Marina) and the good sea food turned this into a wonderful evening!

The restaurant is virtually on the edge of the water in the harbor. The views and photo opportunities from there are just fantastic. Good food and service. It is away from the crowds in Sorrento.
