Always open for LUNCH and DINNER. There is a small sandy bay peeking the Aragonese Castle, where time passes slowly and enjoyable. You can pamper yourself at the beach or choose the lawn, swimming among the rocks of St. Anne and explore the beautiful seabed. You can relax amidst the scents of the garden and enjoy delicious Mediterranean cuisine of our chef, in the evening, for an intimate dinner and enveloping. The Gardenia Mare every moment of the day is pure pleasure.

We went the first night of our stay in Ischia (we were staying just up the road) as a one-time treat, having heard good reviews but wanting to keep to a student budget, and then came back again the second night—it was THAT good. Fantastic food, especially seafood, and wonderful service: they served us an aperitif out by the sea... More

Having spent almost 2 weeks in southern Italy with my wife, Gardenia Mare was far and away the best dining experience we had. The service (Mauro) was wonderful. The views are spectacular. And the food was amazing. They started us off with aperitifs with a view of Castello Aragonese. Then we moved to the main dining area for a truly... More

The owners of this homey charming restaurant could not have made us feel more welcome. The views are incredible, the food portions more than generous, and when the bill came at the end we almost felt guilty for having paid so little. One warning, it is quite a climb up and down the stairs to get there, but well worth... More

Being there yesterday night two couples aside from the troubles in finding the place the rest was super top. Food more than excellent warm and sensitive welcome of the waiter and the manager. The spot is fantastic. You should not miss it if you stay in Ischia for a while.

This was my first visit to this holiday structure. I went there at the end of April with my wife and my daughters (4 and 2). The first surprise was the apartment, it was very cozy, clean and spacious. there were "breathtaking" views from the balcony and the rooms (litterally ten meters from the sea). The apartment had an adjoining... More

Visited for dinner one evening. It is so pretty in the night. because there are lots of lighting and candles. We also spent a day there, using their sun loungers and had lunch there too. The dinner was the best experience and they send a taxi boat for you and take you back again.
