When we walked by the harbor and saw the "boat" dining option with its incredible views of the harbor we immediately made a reservation. Good thing, when we came back later in the evening the boat was full (except for our table) and as a testament to the restaurant, most of the other tables were occupied as well. We had... More

We went twice during our week's holiday at the nearby Grandhotel Miramare and really enjoyed both meals . The spaghetti sea food in particular is to die for . Lovely location on the waterfront but can get busy so good idea to book if you are fussy in which area ( inside , outside or on the jetty ) you... More

'Skipper' has a very British sounding name and a very 60's style signage over the door but what it also has is the best view of the harbour and not only that but also a pontoon where you can choose to dine. Skipper is one of the best restaurants in Santa Margherita Ligure and therefore it is advisable to make... More

Had a light lunch here. The service was spotless, friendly and efficent. Food was pretty good. Had grilled dorade with vegetables, the fish was grilled to perfection( also fresh) but the vegetables a little boring. Side salad was ok. Not cheap, nore expensive. Will return next time ;)

Skipper restaurant is situated on Calata del Porto. Food are fantastic, waiters are kind, very warm and professional. We really enjoyed the food here. We had white fish Dentice and wine Pianacce..... I strongly suggest to visit this place. We met old couple from France who are coming every year several times here and always having dinner at Skipper.

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
