delicious seafood on floating dock

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.

Wonderful views of the harbour, great food and lovely atmosphere. We stayed in Santa M for a week and this was our fave spot.

Great position by the port; friendly knowledgeable service with well prepared and cooked dishes. Our sea bass and prawns/langoustines were perfectly grilled. Really enjoyed the local Ligurian wine.

3 tipes of tasty fresh bread with olives. Advice to try the home-made pasta from potato - very tender!

It's not everyday that you get to have dinner in a floating dining room. We had an excellent view of the boats, the city and the skyline out on the floating restaurant. The restaurants as inside, outside and floating dining rooms. We made early reservations so we got the best table out on the floating room. The food was amazing,... More

We ate dinner here twice during our three nights in SML. I loved their gnocchi with truffle and mushroom sauce. I also loved their grilled prawn. My wife had great ravioli with sage and butter. We dined on their "boat" - a floating dining area tethered to their pier area in the marina, which added to the experience. It is... More

Not much to say, standard Italian regional restaurant. Food was very good, service was good, and had a chance to eat on a boat overlooking Santa Margherita. Prices competitive for the area (not cheap)

When walking up to an empty terrace at Skipper last Thursday to have an aperitif we were successfully stopped by a waitress explaining that tables were reserved for dinner. Instead we were told to have a drink at the adjoining bar. The table we wanted to sit down at at Skipper was not occupied for the 1 1/2 hour we... More

Been there before 3 years for the first time, dreamed to come back. So also in 2014 - it's one of the best restaurants I ever visited. Very warm atmosphere, great waitress, amazing food. Suggest to have a dinner there as the dark falls on Santa Margherita - it will be your best dinner ever!

We stayed in Santa Margherita for 2 nights, and we went here on our second night after reading some reviews and actually seeing where it was the night before. We are so glad that we did. The seafood was delightful, so fresh and full of flavour! My girlfriend had the smoked swordfish, and I would recommend it to anyone! The... More
