From outside the building is uninspiring, but once inside the modern yet worm design will already start appealing you. Excellent service without being formal.

Outside of the hotel doesn't seem that there is a good restaurant inside. We arrived to the restaurant after 5 mins booking at 13:30. We thought that we could hurry up to order for Easter meal, but it's still open when we left at 4pm. The service is not in the hurry to let you enjoy view and time with... More

Dear Pemika, thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your lunch at our restaurant, whose specialties are made with daily fished products. We would like to see you again, maybe to have a summer dinner in our terrace facing the sea, or to try our fresh-made sushi restaurant in design rooms. We’re sure you won’t regret it!... More

Good atmosphere and good food, but totally overpriced and unfriendly staff. There seems to be a menu for a more reasonable price (34 euro), but it is not mentionned anywhere.

Magnificent and elegant with excellent food and wines but out of any reasonable choice for price. We are not at Noma in Copenhagen but they apply almost the same price. Service and maitre assistance not in compliance with suggested atmosphere!!!!

The restaurant, part of the Mare Hotel in Savona is definitely worth a visit. The menu is wonderful and ready menus are very, very interesting. Winelist contains little gems at an affordable price. The service is first class and having a toddler with us did not bother the staff, to the contrary they were even nicer!

This wonderful restaurants is teamed up with the Hotel de Mare. The hotel is a very classical "beach" resort, no more but with a private parking ( 7€). The restaurant is a must believe me.
