You know when you are at a special restaurant, not just because of the setting and the service - even the more ordinary seems noticeably better than you expected. I had a carpaccio of sea bass that was really good and then grouper cooked with vegetables. Both were excellent. We got the restaurant to produce a birthday cake, so I... More

We just had to indulge to see what we would get for 150 euros for a beach bed , the cheapest ( for two people) 200 for a bigger shade a little closer to the water. Now this place oozes CHIC , there is no riff raff here . No screaming mums chasing kids , no chairs so close to... More

We had a delicious meal here, with all 6 diners delighted with their choices. Few of us ate the same dishes so I would wager that whatever one orders would be tasty. The ingredients seemed very fresh and the wine list represented good value.

L'Orsa Maggiore is a fully fledged restaurant and beach in Forte dei Marmi. The chef is ecologically engaged, the food of high quality and the situation fabulous. They offer also special weekend seminars introducing modern cuisine. Prices are ok, a bit at the higher end, not uncommon in Forte dei Marmi. The beach is fabulous and you have also a... More

Sitting at the beach under the stars. Waiters are always there but "invisible". Have good recommendations. The food (mostly seafood) is excellent. Also the wine menu. 190 eur for two including a bottle of wine and a whole sea brass. Definitely worth the. Money. Go there.

Our servers, Salvatore and Giovanni, could not be better.... More

Nice restaurant on the beach. We had lunch. Food and service is good. We wanted to book a dinner on one of the following nights but it is always fully booked. Very central location close to the city centre.

Worth a trip to dine at this beautiful vision of a restaurant shimmering in blue and white right on the sea. Very elegant presentation of organic produce and wild, never farmed fish. Only the best olive oils complement the short menu's realistic offerings of wonderful small clam pasta, warm seafood salad, fabulous orata. Reasonably priced wine list of top regional... More
