We enjoyed a nice dinner at this stylish restaurant in the harbour. It was sort of cool to dine al fresco but there is some sitting in between the inside and the terrace that comes out handy if the weather is unsettled. Service was attentive and the fresh fish prepared at Ligurian style was impeccable. Pricy but worth it.

Very good mussels and the baked fish with potatoes, zucchini, capers and garlic was a standout. Our waiter proudly guided us to a local white wine that was produced in a vineyard only a mile or two away. The Tiramisu was outstanding according to my wife who is an expert on such things.

....to enter! Excellent fish restaurant; let the chef advise you what to eat. It is fresh, well prepared, clean, friendly service. We were in the best restaurants all over the world, this one can match many. May be rated "BIB Gourmand" in the Michelin classification.

The locals of Santa Margherita eat in L'Altro Eden, which is a very good sign and showed to be very accurate. We ordered several of the seafood plates and each one was delicious. Highly recommend that once one arrives in this part of Liguria to ask the concierge to make the reservations, because the locals tend to fill up the... More

Simply the best fish we ever ate! Prepared al “forno” with so much flavors; it was absolutely delicious. Trust me, we were 4, and the 4 of us are fish amateurs. The welcoming was very warm and nice! The chef/owner was very pleasant; he came to check on us and wanted to make sure that we ate the whole fish... More

Some local friends made the reservation, assuring us that it's one of the best in the area. Let's hope that they're wrong because there were just too many snags to make this a place where I'd return. First, it was a beautiful summer evening and they just accepted too many reservations. Our table was ready when we arrived but only... More

On the reccomedation of our concierge we went. The restaurant has real promise, we were greeted by a very charming lady with a new tattoo she was obviously proud off, after a pleasant chat we were "served" by a middle aged gentleman and things went downhill. Tried to order oysters. . . No oysters today. . . Ok no problem.... More

Go for it if you like fish, be it raw or cooked. Portions are on the small side but quality is at the top. I dislike the interior decoration, too modern and pretentious but does that really matter if you walk out remembering how good the food was and forgetting how much you spent? Very probably the best restaurant in... More
