We didn't make a reservation. Got a table directly at the Pier - we both had seafood, which was excellent - the local white wine and a very friendly Service made the evening.

We were recommended to visit this restaurant and have the local fish called Marone. We did and this was one of the best meals I have ever had. It was three small fillets on a plate on a small bed of rocket with 6 halved small tomatoes. But the quality of the fish and the way it was grilled was... More

The staff here we're such a great surprise, this was our first visit to these shores and had heard mixed views regarding service. The service was perfect. Friendly, attentive and genuine. We came for lunch, my wife had mussels marinière style. The sauce was a little sharp but mussels cooked perfectly. The dish came with a great selection of bread.... More

Food and service were excellent. Extensive menu to please all tastes. Location cannot be beat, you actually eat on the harbor, on a floating barge. Lots of fresh fish and seafood choices plus all the to be expected Ligurian pasta staples

The floating dock is a different dining experience in the harbor with the view of ducks and fish, however can be cool at night when the winds are up. Don;t hesitate to ask them to lower the clear view roll-ups to knock off wind. We had the garlic shrimp (messy to crack open and little meat) and the white fish... More

We were able to eat on their little barge in front of the restaurant. We enjoyed fresh salad and fresh shrimp. It was quaint and relaxing.

This restaurant is like so many others in S. Margherita. Beautiful location, great staff but ridiculously expensive for mediocre food. Two of us each had white fish, I think it was Mahi, with no sides, just the fish and a few leaves of rocket and half cherry tomatoes. No appetizers, just one ice cream for desert and a bottle of...

This is within easy walking distance of the Grand Hotel Miramare and the quality of the food is first rate. Add to that the setting of a floating restaurant and a nice day and you have the ingredients for a perfect lunch. Service was friendly and efficient. We came just before 2pm and there was no problem getting a table.... More

It's a nice restaurant and the food is good. The fish seems fresh (though states on the menu that frozen may be used) and the view is nice. The staff are friendly and helpful and the gnocchi is delicious. However, what stung the meal was a €4 "cover and bread" charge at the end of the meal that seemed a... More

The best tasting veal alla limone we found. Relaxing floating deck and prompt service for a nice lunch
