Just what we wanted!

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... read 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 came to Santa Margherita on a 'tour' of the west coast of Italy and were not disappointed. Every day at 5pm the fishing trawlers come into the harbour with their catch of the day and the restaurants buy from them so for sure we had to have seafood for dinner! We found Skipper through Trip Advisor on our last... More

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 ;)
