This was one of our favorite restaurants in Sicily. We went there twice during our two night stay in Cefalu. Everything we had was fresh an delicious: Madonie antipasto, grilled prawns, grilled sea bass, stuffed sardines and one of the best tiramisus we ever had. The setting on the terrace with the sea is beautiful. Service is great. Prices are... More

Came across this restaurant by chance as we explore the town and as a result ate here three times this week, each time the food has been excellent the pineapple and salmon antipast is a great appetiser! The view from the seating area across the bay towards Cefalu is wonderful and really helps to put you in the holiday especially... More

This is truly the nicest place we ate in while in Cefalu. The waiters are extremely polite yet friendly, you feel right at home there! The food is marvelous, fresh, inviting, light, and filling. We had several starters, and all were fantastic, especially the (big) fish platter and the bruschetta. The pasta dishes were heavenly - it must be because... More

On the other side of La Rocca, away from the centre, lies a nice small restaurant with a great sea view. They don't serve meat dishes but if you're not craving a steak, you can eat a lovely pasta and/or seafood dish here. Highly recommended!

Lovely food, great view and friendly service. Had the sea bream which was fantastic. Cocktails very reasonable and a great range. Although a little on the edge of town - it is on the way in when walking from hotel le Calette. Can book table overlooking sunset. Beware of the mosquitoes and cover up!

Great pasta meal last night at Al Faro. It is a small restaurant and friendly staff without being intrusive. Good house wine, and pretty sea views from the terrace across the road from the bar/restaurant. Would go back if we had more time.

A nice restaurant to have a meal or a drink. Situated at top of the hill on the way back to where your coach has to park. Lovely views over the sea or sit in the shadeon a hot day and have a nice glass of wine.

It is difficult to rate this place highly enough. As people have written, it is a little way out of the centre of town, but it was right on our route into town! We ate: inside, which is small but very cosy as it was not warm enough to eat outside. From the very start the owner made us feel... More

You can only sit outside, but with a lovely view, great service and delicious food i can cope with the odd insect or two. Good value for money, cheapest cocktails i had and the nicest. We went with a 3 yr old who got her pasta before our starters as the staff could see she was hungry. I would return... More

This little gem is about 500meters from the town under the lighthouse. It is really worth the walk to experience the spectacular sunset over Cefalu. Our friends were Italians and rated the food as excellent. As we were paying we thought it was great value at 150Euros for 7 people. The waiters, Massimo and Luciano, were also very friendly and...
