Shocked by the bad reviews - we had an excellent meal and kids asked to eat here again!

We ate dinner here on Easter Monday along with a full dining room (we are staying in the hotel and it was also full tonight, Tuesday, although we ate somewhere else tonight for variety). All six in my party (including two young kids) enjoyed their meals here last night. Kids shared asparagus... read more

We had dinner there as we were staying in the hotel (Baglio della Luna) and only looked at the other reviews afterwards. I have to say, I really cannot understand the bad reviews. The staff was really helpful, it might have helped that we speak italian but I wouldn't think so. If you know a bit about Sicilian food, you... More

I can't understand how this restaurant rates below McDonald's on Tripadvisor. Yes, there are some flaws, but for the most part we had two excellent meals there. The most successful dishes included ravioli stuffed with swordfish, fettuccine with fresh cherry tomatoesw and bottarga, a marinated seafood antipasto, and lamb chops "prepared just the way my Sicilian grandmother did with lemon...

Most: the position and building/decoration of the restaurant was excellent. The view over the lit-up temple ruins was spectacular, especially through binoculars! The antipasti, including the Camponata, were excellent. The recommended wine was correct and the service was good and friendly. Least: The mixed fish grilled was unexpected and not good. This consisted of very large sections (tentacles) of tasteless... More

This was not only the single worst meal I've ever had in Italy (in 25 or so trips), but might be the single worst meal my wife and I have had ANYWHERE. We are not their enemies, just shocked travelers. We went because three guidebooks, all supposedly independent, raved about this place. The room is beautiful, and the hotel stunning.... More

The view is splendid. And the wine list is ok. But in most restaurants in Sicily you will eat better. After one week on the island it was the first real disappointment.

Be warned. The food served in the restaurant was the worst we had during our trip. Exclusive wine list and nice venue, but the food... We tried antipasti, plus two different types of primi piattis and main courses. All of them were lousy. - Or what would you say of over-cooked soft fish full of hard tiny bones swimming in... More

Perhaps it was that the reviews overhyped the place. Perhaps it was that it was Sunday night and the chef was off duty, replaced by stand-ins. I don't like to judge a restaurant on only one meal, but travelers often have no choice. How often will we eat dinner in Agrigento? This is a very pretty place with a lovely... More

Three weeks in Sicily and everything has been way beyond expectations. But.... this restaurant was our only truly bad experience. The setting could be great but the intense interior lighting obfuscated the view of the temple valley. The food was worse than lackluster. The maitre d' was rude. And said that the wine we ordered was not available and produced... More
