One of the nicest resturants in town. Service, food was just spot on. The resturant is not open every night. So when you arrive make a booking. Make sure you book the barge on the water nice experience.

Had a delicious one-course lunch on the floating pontoon. Looks very touristy but don't be put off by this. A really classy joint. Gorgeous bread; I had mixed starters which was excellent particularly the fish soup. My husband opted for seafood risotto - also delicious. We will be returning for an evening meal.

Thanks to Tripadvisor we found this restaurant AND thanks to you all we read about the amazing fish called "Marone". Its a local fish. You have to do a visit at Skipper just have this mf fish. Best spend 28€ ever.

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.

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)
