We enjoyed the food that was served at Ristorante Gadir, but felt that we were tricked into eating more than we ordered. We began with an appetizer which we intended to share. Instead it seemed that we received three complete appetizers. The main courses were normal. Finally we all received desserts that we did not order. We did not know... More

You can expect a lovely meal here in a comfortable restaurant with a stylish mix of modern over the ancient building fabric. My fish was delicious with an interesting sauce made from sea urchin. I had never had it before and it was an unusual taste of oyster mixed with egg yolk. Very nice. Also, huge wine selection but as... More

Amazing restaurant. From beautiful starer, very tasty and subtle main, great desert modern interior to superbly attentive service (waitress was very kind and translated all the menu without even asking, describing the dishes to perfection and even giving great recommendations). House made Limoncello not to be missed!

This place was recommended to us by the Duchess of Palma. It was a little hard to find but worth the effort. I started with an appetizer of black bread and bacala with a clementine mustardo. Next course was housemade ravioli with burrito and lemon in an almond sauce. Unbelievably good! I asked for and got a cheese plate to... More

We went here after a recommendation and were not disappointed. We did check out the restaurant the night before and found the interior very nicely done. Modern with ancient arches. We were advised about special starters which was excellent, just fresh crustacean mussels, raw shrimp, sea urchin, etc. excellent pasta and as main dish again very fresh fish, prepared with... More

In palermo city, you can find a lot of restaurants of quality. Gadir is not only one of them. It has something special, very difficult to define. A mixture of several cooking skills combined with a touch of innovation gives to the dishes, even the simplest ones a special savor. The discussions with Le Chef on the menu allowed us... More

Ristorante Gadir is an oasis in a rather squalid area of Palermo. Modern chic decor, courteous service and interesting menu with specialities from Pantelleria. Make sure you try the cassata for dessert.

After a visit to the church of the Spasimo, we went to Gadir. The atmosphere made me think I was in for an "expensive" dinner, but I decided to stay anyways. For starters we had "Crostini ai Ricci" (Oven baked slices of bread with beautifully seasoned sea-urchins) and "Tartara di Tonno" (Tuna tartar with some thinly sliced red onion and... More

We were very disappointed with our trip to Gadir. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and very comfortable to sit in. However we didn't find the food or the service of a similar standard. My starter was lovely, a mixed traditional antipasto plate. We also had a nice wine. However we found it very difficult to get a chance to enjoy... More
