“Simple and perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Tiny little place on the edge of the old town in Polignano a Mare. Organic everything. The veg burger and the salmon milfeuille were absolutely perfect for a light lunch. And the mint spritz too. Not cheap, but worth it.

“Perfect for romantic getaway!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

Everything was just lovely!
Food is very good although i would have preferred to have more quantity in main dish and less in desserts.... you can tell the ingredients are really good: fresh and natural. the menu is very original - as the whole environment per se, which is cosy and lovely - perfect for a couple or a small group of friends. owners are very nice and welcoming. absolutely recommend!

“We loved everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

From the reservation (quick and very helpful response), to the service in the restaurant (very friendly, warm, welcoming; translated the menu for us; ...), to the very fresh, healthy and broad menu (i love menus that are focussed on few but therefore good dishes), to the very tasty and creative food you get, to the interior desing which makes it so friendly and cozy you don't want to leave anymore: we loved everything. Just go and enjoy drinks, food and life!

“A lovely Oasis in a wonderful town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Quite simply a fantastic cafe serving delicious fresh food. The menu is, as the proprietors are proud to convey to their customers, changed daily and focusses on organic ingredients. The cafe (cafe does not do it justice) is spotlessly clean (as are the restrooms) decorated tastefully with lovely pictures, framed prints and books and the counter always has a fresh display of delicious sweets and deserts.

I visited every day during my 10 days in Polignano a Mare for their espresso and either their chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream or a slice of apple pie.

It is very warm inside but they do provide fans and they just had an additional fan fitted but, like many of the restaurants, they don't have air con. Don't let that put you off. Super friendly, very chilled and great food at very, and I mean very, reasonable prices. Free WiFi too.

“You will love this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We fell directly in love with this lovely and cosy place. With it's delicious fresh and healthy food and relaxing atmosphere this could be our best experience in years! This place is more then having a good meal, it's about an almost home sweet home feeling in an extraordinary place with extraordinary hosts... After 3 visits in only 4 days Polignano we left a bit heart broken, though Italy is well known for its fine food, this experience will never be forgotten! Thank you so much!
