a good place to eat fish

Its position on the main road is a handicap but once inside the welcome is friendly and the cooking above average. I particularly like the pasta with a red mullet sauce - been back twice for this - everything else including the bread and the house wine are very good. I haven't tried any of the... read more

Vacationed in the area in July and September and visited Clara's 5 times. Hard to resist the food and the patio with it's wicker and flowers. It is just magical despite the busy road and roundabout. The family is warm and friendly and work everyday to see that the customers are satisfied. Our first visit was with a mixed group... More

Not an obvious choice as it is on a busy roundabout! Family run with first rate food. Not flash but excellent. They obviously care about the food. Papa? Wears an orange jacket and directs cars at the front, while the family cook gourmet food in a wooden chalet type building. We both had prawns. First rate. Well worth a visit.

Our hotel receptionist kindly recommended Clara's. It's not an obvious choice as it's not on the main 'drag' and actually sits on a roundabout. However it's a great find - a family owned restaurant with great food and a warm welcome. The seafood was delicious - seafood crepes, mixed seafood and mussels were all winners. The 'scampi' were fresh langoustine... More

Off the main sea front road, on JFK, this family run restaurant has the best sea food ever. The creativity in serving and mixing was spectacular. My husband and I had the Chef's recommendation, which was a five course meal, with an appetizer, first and second course and desert. It was a bit much because the portions are big but... More

Turn off the Promenade onto JFK Avenue and either walk or drive 300 metres to the top of the road and just ahead of you on a roundabout you will find the Restuarante Clara. What appears to have once been a family home has for some time now been converted into a welcoming family eating house. Enter and you greeted... More

Great place to eat. Having tried several places during our holiday this was the unanimous choice for a second visit on the last night.Linguine with truffel, turbot with peppercorn sauce, tuna with courgettes, grilled lobster - you name it - the food was fantastic. It is a little bit more expensive than some of the other restaurants locally - but... More

This is a superb restaurant in every way. The food is astonishingly good, service is impecable and the waiters are very helpful and friendly. The portions are huge and that makes it very good value for your money as the prices are similar to most restaurants in the Camaiore area. There are many restaurants in this area, but very few,...

Want a really go fish night to remember then this where to go. Not on the beach , not a fancy area. Beside a supermarket and the hospital-this offers elegant fish dishes where you always wish there was more. Not that the portions are small the fish is so good. Booking is not necessary.
