Michelin Starred for good reason.....

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.

I expected it to be good and it really was. All dishes are delicious and the waiters are very nice and helpful. They know their job and it was full of people. They really deserve their fame. I loved it

This place reviewed quite well, and boasted the best cous cous in Sicily. So, we thought we'd give it a go. We couldn't get a table the first night we arrived, so we booked a table for the second night. A good sign i mistakenly thought. The service is a mix of friendly and surly depending on who serves you.... More

Visiting this great place at San Vito the second year. One of the most favourite restaurants at Sicily. Everything was just perfect, fish and seafood is just stunning

We decided to visit Profumi di Cous Cous, during a June holiday in San Vito, after consulting the reviews on Trip Advisor. Our opinions are very much in line with majority that have dined there; that the food is of very good quality and the overall ambiance is very pleasant. The first thing of note about Profumi is that it... More

We had lunch here with my wife and our almost 2-year-old month girl; we were a bit nervous about popping in as it's definitely on the finer side of San Vito lo Capo restaurants, but we wanted to taste the highly reputed cous cous. I'm super happy we went: although we came in before opening time we were seated and... More

Not sure how this place has got such a great Tripadvisor rating from over 1500 people, and it may be that the evening we went for dinner was just an 'off' day for the owners, staff and chefs - but for a place that prides itself on cous cous, ours was truly terrible - dry, undercooked, and with absolutely no...

In a day and time when most places were closed, we ended up having lunch here. The place itself is great, with a beautiful patio. Food is good. We had fish cous cous and octopus salad. Both were very enjoyable. Service was fast and correct, although not very warm. Overall a good experience.
