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?

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

The staff is friendly but slooooooooooow. The wine list is excellent - price AND quality. The view is non- existent. Yes, you are on the beach, but behind 10 rows of parasols with people in various states of undress (not always appetising) and screaming children at lunch. We chose this because Mariarge was not open. The food, while very honest... More
