My simple suggestion: find your way to this remote cape, take in the awesome view, savor their tasty food, sip some chilled wine, watch the sunset and head back...but steer clear of the SPA: you can call it a fun, different experience or a complete nightmare.

1st consideration - the place - AMAZING , one of the most beautiful locations in Liguria 2nd consideration - the food - absolutely NORMAL, maybe acceptable if this restaurant was a fast food, but actually here you pay no less than 16 euros for a pasta ; disgusting 3rd consideration - the service - TOTALLY INEFFICIENT - low, unprofessional, inadequate,...

We took a walk from Camogli to the Punta where the restaurant is located. It took us an hour and it was a worthwile walk because of the sunset at that time. The food was very nice, high quality, nicely prepared and served. Also the recommended Nebbiolo wine was tasty and with 30Euro reasonable priced. The waiter attentif and friendly.... More

We went for lunch one day while staying in Rapallo. The ocean was rough and the usual boats weren't running so the restaurant sent a boat into Portofino to pick us up. It's definitely one of the more unique restaurants in which we've eaten. Upon arrival by boat you have to climb through foot paths and up stairs (over 150... More

The site is just unforgettable. The view, the terrace, the small resort, the SPA, the service and, yes, the food. All builds a truly remarkable experience. Start with a fantastic Vermentino di Lumi, followed by excellent fried ficaccine with pulp.... To die for. Most of their dishes are above average. The presentation is fantastic. Sometimes a bit too rich for... More

While placed in a breathtaking (though not very accessible) location, perched on the Camogli gulf next to the traditional fisheries of Punta Chiappa, the restaurant falls short of expectations. Such a glorious location and scenery should be matched by food just as excellent, especially considering that fresh fish is readily available from local fishermen. My partner and I experienced instead... More

The negative words to describe this experience are almost inadequate. The manager was dismissive--recognizable by blonde hair and blue eyes--refused to give us his name when we complained. Menu extremely limited---all of our first choices were "finished" at 1:00 p.m. for lunch..although we were the only patrons of the day. Here are a few examples of our horrible experienc: 1.... More

This place is really unique -- is a true experience to add to your holiday itinerary. Perched high above the water, the balcony is the feature of this place. I'd recommend booking in advance and asking for the very front of the balcony to make the most of the incredible view of the coastline. The waiters are super helpful, despite... More

Me and 3 friends walked from Camogli to Punta Chiappa and loved every minute. The scenery is beautiful, the land is unspoint and the walk is just amazing. The Stella Maris is a fabulous place to stay. I almost don't want to recommed it as I'd like it always to be available when we book again! Marco and his staff... More

I found it just by a suggestion of a Camogli port man. It is very cool and fascinating, when you are eating on the terrace with the candlelight atmosphere, the view of the paradise golf, Camogli and the sun set.....No more world. Thanks marco
