This restaurant doesn't open until 8:00 (in July) but well worth the wait. We came back just after 8:30 and had our choice of tables. The place was filled by 10:00 so it was worth getting there a little early. Service and food were terrific and not too pricey considering that and its location. It overlooks "The Valley of Temples"... More

My wife and I are staying at the Villa Athena which has a very nice restaurant, but we wanted to try something different. Based on other TA reviews we went to the Akropolis. We had an 8am reservation on a Sunday night and were the first ones there. The restaurant has a very nice outdoor patio with wonderful views of... More

This is a lovely restaurant, with a view overlooking the valley, with the temples on the other side. If the weather permits, dine al fresco and enjoy the atmosphere as well as the view. The food was excellent and the wine selection was too.

We didn't find much worth visiting in Agrigento outside the Valley of Temples and the museum except this restaurant. We walked from the museum to town, where everything was closed because it was a Sunday. We had seen the sign for this restaurant on our way to town and decided to stop for lunch on our way back. The front... More

Sitting on the external terrace we had a wonderful dinner enjoying as well a nice view on the temples valley. We received a complimentary glass of prosecco upon arrival as well as a greeting from the kitchen: a small piece of local cheese and honey as amouse bouche. The food was generally well presented, fresh and tasteful. Portion were quite... More

Un locale con una bella vista sui templi, dove si mangia bene, una buona cucina siciliana rivisitata, con qualche concessione ad una modernità creativa non eccessiva. Qualche pecca, o forse ingenuità, sul servizio, con un cameriere che, sia pure gentile e di buona volontà, mancava forse dell'esperienza che il tono cercato dal padrone del locale richiederebbe. Qualche pecca anche sull'atmosfera,... More

We had the most wonderful and memorable dinner at this lovely restaurant. The owner of the hotel we stayed in Agrigento arranged our ride to and from restaurant. The restaurant located on the hill overlooking the Valley of Temples – the view is magnificent! Food was absolutely superb. We have been greeted with glass of Champaign and small appetizer –...
