We visited for our 1st wedding anniversary and couldn't have made a better choice.

The restaurant is on the roof terrace of the El Jebel hotel, just off the Corso Umberto. Panoramic views are spectacular. Our fine dining... More

From the homemade breads to the pasta, to the fish, to the carne... everything was perfect! I have no other words to describe this experience other than perfect as it was,... More

The staff was attentive and very professional. I need to have gluten free food, and this was no problem at all. We also had just... More

After La Tavernetta this was our favourite restaurant in Taormina and the best of the rooftop restaurants. The food was excellent, the cocktails were wonderful and generous. The staff are amongst the friendliest in Taormina and help to create an intimate atmosphere The views are beautiful and in my opinion it is much less stuffy than La Baronessa, the better... More

We stayed at the Hotel el Jebel and this is their restaurant. We ate on the roof with a spectacular view of the harbor. Just super food and service. Expensive, but not exorbitant. Worth every penny.

You have to find this, it's worth the effort, has spectacular views, with elegant furnishings & delicious food. Different & imaginative. Good value too, three of us ate & drank for 140 euros food that was creative. My steak with green pepper mousse & asparagus was perfectly cooked.
