“Fresh safood, great view and attentive service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Very good mussels and the baked fish with potatoes, zucchini, capers and garlic was a standout. Our waiter proudly guided us to a local white wine that was produced in a vineyard only a mile or two away. The Tiramisu was outstanding according to my wife who is an expert on such things.

“Do not hesitate.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

....to enter! Excellent fish restaurant; let the chef advise you what to eat. It is fresh, well prepared, clean, friendly service. We were in the best restaurants all over the world, this one can match many. May be rated "BIB Gourmand" in the Michelin classification.

“L'altro Eden is a gem for seafood enthusiasts traveling to Portofino”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The locals of Santa Margherita eat in L'Altro Eden, which is a very good sign and showed to be very accurate. We ordered several of the seafood plates and each one was delicious. Highly recommend that once one arrives in this part of Liguria to ask the concierge to make the reservations, because the locals tend to fill up the restaurant quickly.

“Best fish ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Simply the best fish we ever ate!
Prepared al “forno” with so much flavors; it was absolutely delicious. Trust me, we were 4, and the 4 of us are fish amateurs.

The welcoming was very warm and nice!

The chef/owner was very pleasant; he came to check on us and wanted to make sure that we ate the whole fish ☺!

Service efficient and cordial.

Sit outside.

“good food but little value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Some local friends made the reservation, assuring us that it's one of the best in the area. Let's hope that they're wrong because there were just too many snags to make this a place where I'd return. First, it was a beautiful summer evening and they just accepted too many reservations. Our table was ready when we arrived but only acrobats were able to get to the chairs on one side of the table! Then the service was too slow (it would seem that the kitchen wasn't able to keep up with requests).
The food was fine but there was nothing innovative or outstanding in the preparation and presentation. But the most painful moment was when the bill came-- 75 euros per person. Had each of our meals included at least 3 courses (starter, main course, and a dessert), I'd say that was fair but we ate (and drank) light!
