We had a marvellous dinner of seafood made effortlessly. Everything was beautifully prepared and piping hot. The desserts were picture perfect- especially the apple crumble, pavlova (meringue) with cream and berries and the chocolate mousse. Definitely not a place to eat everyday- too many calories but phenomenal in an unpretentious way.

There are several restaurants/bars alongside this beautiful seaside. But this restaurant is in terms of location, ambiance, food and service the best among them. They have a reasonably priced seafood menu up to EUR20. They are all well presented, which stimulate your appetite. A good wine list. Absolute worth visiting!

Bordigera is a relatively unspoilt seaside town, which has a sort of charming simplicity. Amarea is a 'beach restaurant' (stoney beach) located at the far end of the promenade. The decor is quite basic but adequate. The service is good and English spoken, although customers are mostly Italian. Our food was lovely! Well presented and tasty... Excellent spinach flan and...

As in previous comments , do not be put off by the outside surroundings ! This restaurant serves seriously good food at reasonable prices. Having spent a week eating in France beforehand it was just a pleasure to eat some Italian food . Quality and presentation was faultless, this restaurant is a must if you are visiting bordighera !

Right on the water in the best spot of the lungomare. Amazing food - fresh ingredients prepared simply and elegantly. The service was outstanding. We will be back!

There are a number of restaurants in Bordighera that we want to try. But on a beautifully sunny and relatively warm day in February how can one resist lunch outside on the beach at Amarea? The food here is always excellent, the seaside setting ideal and the meal fairly priced for the high level of creativity and premium ingredients. One... More

An ideally suited situation opposite the sea, and a great sunny day, for January. The building itself looks very tattered, but the food, service, and presentation all excellent. And a lovely, dry, draught Prosecco , which even I was able to drink with the meal. All four of us were pleased with our dishes, the Tuna Tataki excellent. Thoroughly recommended.... More

I like this restaurant very much. The owner us a past Michelin starred chef and has kept excellent quality for reasonable price (I spend around 35 euro). There hasn't been one time which I didn't enjoy it. The starters, the first courses, the main course the deserts and the wine - all excellent! The service is also good. The restaurant... More

Bordighera market on Thursdays is a fun place to shop. Foods and clothing at reasonable prices abound. Less crowded than nearby San Remo. Town is great to shop in also. Eurodrink has excellent wines and all exotic liquors; like Sassigaia Grappa! So, we go to the market and then, head to Amarea at the eastern end of the market for... More
