“First meal in Pompeii”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Had a very nice dinner last night. Great service, good food and wine. Took steak back to cook more as it came out rare but the seafood was beautifully cooked and full of flavour.

“Sudden and pleasant dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Travel to the Amalfi coast, we decided to make a stop in Pompeii for dinner. We chose the Garum for the comfort of the car park, within walking distance from the exit Pompeii West of Highway Na-Sa within walking distance from the station of Fs, the excavations and the sanctuary.
We dined outside on a lovely table decoration and chili paste.
We chose a fish dinner with a trio of appetizers, a trio of first course for adults and a children's roasted squid, white wine and Coca-Cola. All delicious and fresh, the chef Fiore, prepared foods, simple but with great imagination has combined the fish with vegetables, cheese and nuts. Superb fried squid with fennel cream.
Price/quality is excellent. Fast and friendly service, relaxing atmosphere.

“Revived after the Pompeii heat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

We visited Ristorante Garum for lunch in the course of a day long visit first to Pompeii with Herculaneum to come. Our driver had asked the restaurant to open especially for us and we were treated to calm, cool and a delicious meal. We had simple pasta and pizza dishes but we would all highly recommend the chocolate torte which was as good as anything served in a five star restaurant. Ristorante Garum completely restored our party's energy and good humour and we would certainly seek it out again when we are next in Pompeii

“Garum Pompei”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We had a wonderful meal at Garum! The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. the house wine at Euro 2.00 is a great margin. We spent just over euro 20 per person and it was way too much food- portions are generous.
We had also tried some of the other restaurants in pompeii ( currently rated #2 and #4) but they don't come close for the quality of the food.
The ambience is very nice and it's upscale despite the inexpensive cost.
Service also very friendly.
