Lovely Experience on Floating Deck

We booked this restaurant after walking past, and thought it would be a nice experience eating on the floating deck. The service was friendly and attentive. We had veal, a pasta and a glass of wine each, which came to approx €40 including a cover charge. Te bread basked was impressive, the house... read more

We ate at this lovely restaurant two nights in a row. We were lucky enough to get a table on the floating deck the first night without a booking, enjoying a beautiful sunset with half a bottle of prosecco. The food was delicious - the gnocchi with truffle sauce was one of the best meals we have ever had. My... More

nicely located at the dock, insummer you can even seat at a floatibg ponton. The food was sonetimes good, specially gnochis, average in spaguetti with deafood, or poor in rice pilaf. Prices were high, around 50 euros per persom without wine. Service was poor. No reason to return.

Totally overrated, the service was very poor, the waiter never came near, he forgot to bring bread basket to the table. Very expensive and not worth it. Disappointed.

We had booked for an 8.30 pm table on the lovely floating pontoon. In hindsight we should have booked slightly later as we were seated amongst tables of families with raucous kids. This only lasted for about half an hour before most departed to run amok elsewhere. Why parents can't teach their kids to sit at the table and to... More

Had a delicious one-course lunch on the floating pontoon. Looks very touristy but don't be put off by this. A really classy joint. Gorgeous bread; I had mixed starters which was excellent particularly the fish soup. My husband opted for seafood risotto - also delicious. We will be returning for an evening meal.

One of the nicest resturants in town. Service, food was just spot on. The resturant is not open every night. So when you arrive make a booking. Make sure you book the barge on the water nice experience.

Located right in the heart of Santa Margherita, we took our tour guide's recommendation and ate dinner here. Seafood and atmosphere was wonderful. Great prices, wine and service. Book a table on the floating dock.
