Although The location is absolutely breathtaking, The service is awful. It seems that since they know they are full anyway they are arrogant and not very keen on giving good service. It seems they want to take as much money they can in The shortest time. You are obliged to take at least three courses so we took The tasting... More

Your reviews are shocking! You are simply blowing it! Don't get comfortable and rely so much on that spectacular view it just doesn't make sense. Any... More

Although this wasn't the best meal that we have had, we would have to say that the food, service and the atmosphere all combined made this a truly unique and memorable experience. We chose the pre-set menu which we rarely do. The appetizer was a plate of raw seafood and although very good, my wife prefers her food cooked. The... More

This restaurant was the sole reason we chose to base ourselves in Polignano. I had read the reviews but chose to ignore them and to make my own mind up as so wanted to experience the magic. Unfortunately I can only concur with the experience of so many others. As soon as we arrived we headed for the restaurant to... More

On a cold winter day...a picture of this restaurant was posted on my facebook page. I decided I had to go here. It was a once in a lifetime experience. On a super hot day above ground to go down inside the grotto and enjoy lunch was a wonderful experience. The grotto was cool, we were glad we went for... More

I was there two days ago with my girlfriend. It was her birthday and we wanted to do something special. Given the very high price, we expected a unique experience. What we got was a mediocre and extremely overpriced food that was served in a rush so they could free up the table for other customers. Don't waste your time... More

A really wonderful setting and a thoroughly enjoyable meal. We went to restaurant for its magical setting and was well worth it. You are truly with a gorgeous sea view. If there was one criticism it was that the waitresses did not explain the actual meal. We had 3 Degustazione and would have liked a little information on each course.... More

I had only one hour to stay in the restaurant and it was totally unforgettable experience! Service is very good, food perfect, view amazing, the atmosphere is warm. You are sitting there watching sunset, birds are flying above you from cave to sea direction and vise versa and all you can do just feel it. I was full of emotions... More

After reading the mixed reviews on Trip advisor we were unsure whether we wanted to take the risk of dining here or not. It was for our one year wedding anniversary and we really wanted something special. We decided to go even with all the negative reviews! We are so so happy we did! It was the most amazing setting...

This is a really magical spot, with the restaurant and bar being set inside a large cave that extends all the way to the back of the restaurant. I just could not get enough of the gorgeous sea view and the sounds of the waves hitting the rock. Having been forewarned that the lunch takes a while, we told the... More
