Very good service but be aware they don't open until about 8:30pm. There was a large party there but this did not affect the good service. Seafood fixed menu was delightful and included very large servings (we could have shared a meal and been well fed. Very nice view from the terrace too!

When we visited this restaurant there was also a large family party taking place which I think is common for this restaurant - it certainly added interest to the evening. The service was very friendly and the food was good - we ate from the €18 prezzo fisso menu. The antipasti was very good, primi piatti passable and secondi good.... More

we were recommended by the owner of the eldest bakery in town, Modena (off the beaten path, two blocks) and we went there recommended by the cathedral administrator. The locale is excellent, not a tourist place, but a restaurant. The owners and son take care of you. Service is great, the view "superb". The food delicious. Overlooking Palermo. Unbelievable prices.

We usually avoid any restaurant directly on the tourist trail from coach park to major attraction but made an exception for il Giardino degli Aranci because of reviews on here and the stunning location looking across the valley beyond Monreale. It turned out to be a delight. Charming service from Giuseppe, good food (the patatini were specially good) and a... More

We were reccommended by the manager of the hotel. Went to have dinner and was really good. Full of people of Monreale. Which tells you it is good. The next day we return to have lunch

+ Good quality and presentation of seafood + Beautiful views of Palermo + Very well responsive staff - The wine was not introduced and presented by one of the young waitresses, which is obviously expected in the such a high quality restaurant - not a big problem, just recommendation

We had a perfect lunch here. The food was delicious, the service was good, the garden and the views amazing. Be careful at the opening hours: it closes at 3:30 pm and opens again at 7:00 pm. Overall I recommend it to everyone.
