Excelent food and good service at affordable prices

We enjoyed the atmosphere and the meals of this central located restaurant. The lassagna with shrimps and eggplant was very tasteful. The desserts are the best we have tried in Italy

We came here on the back of the reviews on Tripadvisor but wished we hadn't. Having eaten at a much better restaurant on the corner the previous night we wished we'd gone there again. The food was mediocre and my tuna was inedible. I suspect it was frozen even though they assured me it was fresh. They seemed completely indifferent... More

Before going I consulted the menu on the website, and then as we asked for the plates there where a lot that weren't available! The food was fair but not as good as expected.

Went here one night during our recent stay in Pompeii. Chosen based on previous reviews but frankly disappointed. Upon arrival we were plonked at a table by the door with people constantly coming and going. The senior waiter was pleasant enough but slightly dismissive. His 2 young assistants were constantly hovering about which I found a bit off putting. One... More

My wife and I ate at Garum during our stay in Pompeii. Great seafood and very good service. Short walk from our hotel (hotel Forum). Nice wine list and very good value. Gluten free not a problem

Went several times to eat here. Garum is a serious, not touristic restaurant. Always satisfied. The seafood risotto is delicious. Ask for a good wine suggestion and you will not be disappointed. Also a good value for your money! Recommended.

Our late lunch at Garum was an amazing highlight of our stay in Pompeii. The food was outstanding -- the service was phenomenal. The restaurant closes in the late afternoon as do most do in the area but they never rushed our dining experience! Very gracious people. After a truly delicious meal - the chef came out to greet us.... More
