Fresh fish, almost alive

Walking around the Casbah, we run into this restaurant in an alley. There were tables outside and most of them were taken (good sign). In the mood for fish, we had some seafood couscous and mixed grilled fish. The first one was served the traditional way, with a whole fish to clean and with... read more

With a group of friends we ate lunch here without a booking on a recent visit to Sicily. The town is lovely and this restaurant proved to be an excellent choise. The service was rapid and friendly and the food and drink excellent. NOT to be missed if you visit Mazara del Vallo!!

A little restaurant hidden in between the small streets of Mazara del Vallo. Generally praised for the sea food couscous, but also the other dishes are super tasty. The owner is very friendly and helped us choosing depending our preferences. Even though the place us supposed to be open for lunch and dinner only, it seems to be open all... More

A hidden gem down one of the side streets in Mazaro, the Alla Kasbah was for us a cous cous celebration - all four of us had it, with vegetables or with lamb - and none of us were disappointed!

In the streets of the Kasbah district in Mazara del Vallo, this restaurant proposes good and well prepared food, fresh fish and very nice atmosphere. Mazara is nice because is still a bit wild, not that turistic and for that reason allow everyone to perceive the real sicilian feelings, and the food is, of course, a fundamental part of them....

We initially only visited Mazara to have a look at the fishery but discovered it to be a jewel of a town. We visited Erice on the same trip, a beautiful mountain top village smothered to death by tourism. Mazara is no less beautiful in my view and is very much a real place. Wandering around its beautiful piazzas and... More

Lovely food, cous cous was perfect, fish soft, tender and full of flavour. Polite friendly staff, clean toilets, nice seating outside. Simply a lovely meal and fairly priced. Will go back again. Thanks for a good experience!

After having choosen a local classical wine Nero d Avola, received a caraf of bad wine, two primi piatti with no taste and no flavour, we asked for the bill. The owner tried to serve us with the entire bill and started insulting the french (thinking we were french). Bad attitude and taking tourists for idiots.
