Very Good Meal

Nice little setting on the harbor, with outdoor seating and a view of all the boats. I liked that there where a couple of casual pleases next door, where you could have a drink before or after dinner Fish was good. Spaghetti with clams was outstanding. But the real sleeper was the octopus... read more

L'altro Eden is one of the best restaurants to be found in the city! Guide Michelin never fails. In case you are not an Italian, I suggest to ask fot the catch of the day or just follow the suggestion of the waiter. Why? Because this is a restaurant typically frequented by upscale italians and that's the way they order... More

This restaurant promises much, but runs the risk of delivering little. It is possible to eat well here as we have found over the last six years. However, you must select your dishes very carefully. In our experience it is better to go "off piste" and ask what is available that is not shown on the menu. In that case,... More

Nothing was outstanding on the evening we ate here. In front of our table were bundles on the dock that detracted from the view. The salad was plain and uncreative. Although the fish was tasty, the servers were not particularly interested in us.

This is a very popular (with the locals) harbor waterfront fish restaurant. We had possibly the best Branzinno we can ever recall (20 trips to Italy in past 30 years). It was their simple, but classic preparation using whole fish, white wine, potatoes and herbs baked in the oven. Absolutely superb. For the regulars and larger groups they seem to... More

We looked forward to enjoying Mediterranean seafood. Whilst the restaurant looked enticing, the outcome proved expensive and unsatisfactory. The mixed grilled fish at 70 euro for 2 proved to have approximately 5 cc of fish. There was shellfish and padded out by vegetables. There are many other great restaurants in Santa Margherita Ligure.

There were four of us and all our meals were delicious - but the prawn risotto was our fave! The setting is extremely beautiful but the service was a bit slow.

Recommended by the hotel we decided to 'have a look' rather than booking the restaurant. We arrived at 20:30hrs and despite there being several free tables (apparently reserved) we were told we could either have a table deep inside the restaurant or come back later.. We elected to have a drink at the nice bar next door and waited. My... More

We love to travel the world to spend money for great experiences & food. The food was lacking sincerity... it looked pretty but wasn't delicious. We were recommended this place by locals & It was a disappointment. table tax $10 euro anti pasta tasting $66 euro (said $20 maybe x2 on the menu=$28 difference) also very disappointing in flavors. risotto...
