Well deserved reputation for couscous

Our experience was really good. It's a very popular place, with dinner served in two rounds, as far as I can tell, which may be annoying for some, and a reservation is necessary. The appetizers were delicious and couscous, their speciality, was also very good - we tasted three different types. Recommended.

Unfortunately this restaurant's reputation exceeds what it delivers. Perhaps it was better in the past. Now you have to book a table a day in advance and the service is production line style. My dish was the worst tried here in San Vito Lo Capo. Not recommended.

We tried Sicilian pasta - busiate al pesto trapanese and risotto al mare, everything was excellent! Wine list is huge with all the best Sicilian wines. Staff was very nice and helpful, especially a young girl from Valderice, who served us wine and home made "alloro".

Cous Cous Sicilian style! Lots of very fresh (we had fresh tuna carpaccio) seafood and enormous portions. Save your entire daily appetite and go for a full, three or four course meal here. It's delicious. The wine list is very extensive. When it's hot, drink the Bianco di Nera frizzante - holy wow was that the perfect beverage for hot... More

I am not a cous cous lover but i falled in love with theirs. I've been there only once but i can't wait to come back there to try the other ones. The freshness of the fish and the originality of the chef, makes this charming little restaurant one of the best place to eat cous cous of the west... More

Delicious Sycylian food. All very fresh. Nice waiter service. Large selection of wines. Cozy garden with plenty of tables. We recommend that you make a reservation because it's hard to get off free space.

One will have a choice of different couscous meals. One can even eat in the backyard with great atmosphere. A great place to be, don't miss it! Reservation has to be done!

What to say.... This is a really popular restaurant with a line up of people waiting every night. We stopped for aperitivi and were lucky enough to get a table on the terrasse. I ate one of the best couscous ever. The only hiccup was that the waiters were so eager to serve that we received our food, as we... More

Another example of the hype surpassing reality. Lovely garden, though uncomfortably hot - more fans would be good. Good service. The food however was fine but certainly not amazing. My fish couscous was very bland and didn't have a lot of fish in it. The breads very nice. Quite expensive for what it is, but definitely worth a visit.
