A delightful spot for food and people watching!

A little expensive for me but I loved my evening her. They had objection to my being a "Solo Diner" You can dine on "terra ferma" or on a attached but slightly-floating barge. The food lived up to the general ambience. Well worth a vist.

We had a wonderful dinner here. We ate on a barge that was tied to the dock. I cant say a bad thing about this restaurant. The atmosphere was romantic, the food was superb, and the captain and waiter gave us the best service possible. The wine the captain suggested with our meal was a perfect compliment.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us for lunch on a day trip to Santa Margherita from Portofino. It's a lovely restaurant on the marina, with an indoor restaurant and terrace and also a floating restaurant on the water, which was really nice. The food and wine were excellent - mainly seafood- but the service was absolutely brilliant and genuinely... More

We had a great lunch at skipper, grilled langustines with garlic olive oil(order separately) and mussels marinara. Good sauvignon from austria. Service is good, but then again we were here off-season, middle september. Great view.

Skipper restaurant is on the harbour front, we sat on the floating part of the restaurant which had a lovely ambience. We had a local fish which I think was called Moron, it was delicious a bit similar to Halibut, the service and cleanliness was excellent. Sometimes restaurants on the front dont serve the best food but this one does!

The seating is unique off the noise of the street. We had spaghetti frutti mare they have been killed by olive oil and you had to search for the "frutti de mare". The Scami grilled were perfect done and excellent. The service was not existent we had to wait for an hour until the scampi reached our table. We had... More

What an experience! First of all, ideal location with an option to eat on a "boat" which of course we did. The inside is designed like a boat as well, very classy spot, had an exquisite meal and date night
