Costly but different

First at all, if you come to eat here, don´t expect you will eat huge portion and pay nothing, this isn´t a low-cost restaurant. If you are not prepared for some particular gastronomic experience together with an awesome view for which you need to pay, don´t visit this place. However if yes, then... read more

The restaurant was recommended to us for a treat dinner. Everything about this place seems to be random, beginning with the decor (modern white tables lightning and furniture to old school scooter and coca cola box in the corner). I understand the idea to be posh restaurant but it's not working and the food is very very average when put... More

We came here for lunch on our anniversary. On entrance, there was no one around and we waited for around 5 mins for any service and to be shown to a table. We were then bombarded with 3 waiters pushing for us to order less than 30 seconds after being seated. I ordered a basil tomato pasta which was 15... More

Ate out for sixteen nights in Southern Italy on recent visit, and this rates last of my sixteen meals. It was overpriced, the service was stiff and unrelaxed and the food was very average. The biggest shock for me was paying 20 euro for two 33ml bottles of "craft" beer. The standard italian beers were not available. I should have... More

Four of us had lunch here in mid-June. Firstly I noticed a reference on the menu stating more or less that "they didn't really appreciate reviews on Trip Advisor",something I thought strange for a restaurant to say! The dining room in itself is lovely,with a great setting & view. We were charged €6 per bottle for mineral water. We asked... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and on arrival it was very well presented although quite empty. On receiving the menu we couldn't help noticing a comment stating Tripadvisor members not welcome!(warning). The waiter that served us was very charming and helpful, my wife and I both chose a first and second course and drinks, the waiter returned to inform... More

Enticed by a recommendation from our hotel and the promise of a roof-top terrace, we decided to give this restaurant a try. Although there was a reasonable view, the restaurant was enclosed and the night we were there it was virtually empty of other diners. The first warning sign was a statement on the inside page of the menu stating... More

It seems most odd that the recent reviews of this restaurant are less than wholesomely praising, and more so that one of them calls out poor vegetarian choices. Our visit there two nights ago was a terrific evening and with one of us being vegetarian I think it is fair to say we got a dining experience we'll remember for... More

This restaurant has probably the best dining room in Ostuni as the view from the inside terrace is magnificent. Sadly the food did not live up to our expectations. Two of our party of four went for the seafood set menu, one went for the traditional set menu and one al la carte. The set menus were priced at around... More
