Great location - outside seating with views of the sea. Good food from a (mainly seafood) menu. Spent a lovely long lunch here.

We are Italian and have eaten in a few restaurants in Marina di Leuca and around Puglia - this one deserves a special mention. We have just finished dinner here - antipasti di pesce, seppie gratinate, ravioli al pesce - all a good step above other places here and one of the best fish meals we've had. Delicate and well...

Good value too The food was great although its difficult to have a bad meal in Italy. What sets it apart is the hospitality. The team there obviously enjoy what they do and you are made very welcome.

Was in the area checking out the real estate options and this place was recommended and also one of the very few things open on the day I visited. There was one other table of local guys in there, pleasant with white tablecloths, you step down into the place. Across from the sea crashing in, easy to park. I had... More

One of the few places open on a sunny late December day, we sat outside and enjoyed everything we ate. As Cafe do' Mar directly overlooks the sea, most of their dishes are fish or seafood based so being vegetarian, we ordered off menu (plate of pasta which they happily made for us) plus some contorni (reasonably priced at €3...

We have only had capuccino twice at this place. It is just a few metres away from the boardwalk on a side street. The capuccinos were good but I write this review for othet reason. While there my wife left her camera in the bathroom. It was just a regular digital but had hundreds of pics on it. When we... More

we went there for the engagement party of our friends during our holiday. We read good reviews but our experience was one of the most tragic I'd ever had in a restaurant. the service was awful and we left without finish our meal because we were disappointed.

This Restaurant is well worth a visit if you are in this area. The food is good, the service excellent and the head waiter speaks English. Although having a varied menu their speciality seems to be seafood or fish, although they also serve meat dishes. For my husband this was easy, Fish filled Ravioli and Grilled Veg. on the side...

We stopped by here as there was nowhere else opened on this beautiful November day. Our Italian is mediocre and we decided to try the Antipasto di mare and 2 pasta dishes. The waiter was kind enough to inform us that the antipasto might be enough and why not wait until we finished to order more. We did that and... More

Lovely restaurant, very good food and good service. Book in advance. We loved it. Fresh fish and very good meat. Pity the unfinished building on the side. But I suppose it will be finished soon.
