“John McConnell Belfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Excellent little bar. Carmen, her husband, daughter Anna and son Flavio are the most pleasant people you could meet who provide excellent service and value for money. Have been in Sorrento over the last 4 years and I always go to The Wonderful Sea. Brilliant position beside the beach and they serve beautiful, cold Nastro Azurro and Peroni as well as food. A very relaxing place to sit and admire the sea, Naples and Vesuvius on the other side of the bay. Don't be put off by the plastic chairs and tables. It's the service and the people that count and you won't get better in Marina Grande or indeed in Sorrento itself.

“A Piece of Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Fantastic place to sit and cool down with a cold beer whilst spending the day at Marina Grande. My father in law and I visit every year and are brilliantly looked after by Carmen and her family - the best in Marina Grande by a country mile - service with a smile!!!

“Wonderful indeed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Visited on the reviews on TA. Yes red plastic chairs, Maybe even a little shabby looking..Please never change it. A lovely setting in Marina Grande. The wine was great and so cheap I wonder how they even make a profit. Very unusual to go anywhere in Sorrento and find such great value for money, Did not have the snacks but saw what was comming out and looked great, The food menu was very cheap too. I didn't bother ordering food as the huge pile of peanuts they provided filled me up. It made a nice change to go somewhere in Sorrento that wasn't mobbed, I guess not many can be bothered walking back up the hill afterwards which suits me because its such a nice relaxing place, Seems that most like minded people come down here because the fellow tourists were very nice too. All chilled out with a little laughter and good cheer.
