Location incredible, it deserves a visit. At the sunset itnis magic. Breathless. Good service. food good (not excelent) and poor quantity portion. What is real Negative is a price just IMMORAL. I.e. 34 euro for a small portion of pasta far away to be excelent. Too too hight.

Is a beautiful place, a good service, but a not high quality of food the restaurant is located in a natural grate with views at the sea. The prices and service is for tourists...... I recommend for a visit and a cup of vine and perhaps a focaccia.

A dinner of a lifetime, in a beautiful open cave right on the Adriaric Sea. Reservations are a must and it is only open during the summer months. They have a mild dress code but you want to look nice if you go there. There are 64 stairs to go down to the cave. The menu Is good and so... More

We splurged on this hotel because of the position,and that was before we knew of the restaurant in the seacavern! It was in October and the sea was roaring. The window in our room looked out over the water and we felt the vibrations when the waves hit. It was incredible,like being out in a ship. The restaurant is the... More

I was here in May 2015 and we were with a tourist group for lunch. It is something special to eat in a sea-side cave with the waves beneath you. The food was pretty good although I had better in Puglia.

We reserved the top room they had and thank heavens we did. It is a small place and it turned out our room was actually across the street on it's own and with the door right off the street into the bedroom. The bedroom is very clean and the the bed was comfortable but the bathroom is very small with... More

The restaurant at the hotel was great. The room was nice as well as the view but the bed was terrible. The "queen" bed was actually two TWIN beds pushed together. So of course, I found myself in the crack every night. Terrible. Just terrible. Check out the restaurant. It's a great experience.

We drove 5 hours out of the way to have dinner at the Hotels restaurant. Expect expensive. The food is very good, it's not Michelin 3 Star but very good. Atmosphere, we sat at the railing watching the Adriatic sea crash against the rocks below, white tablecloths, candles, excellent wait staff. Fisher the Maitre D' is a real pleasure. All... More

We knew this hotel would be basic and no frills, so there were no surprises. The location was great, the views were great, but the staff were surly and disinterested. Unlike other places we stayed on our trip, the staff were unfriendly and unwilling to help. For example hen we asked for directions to the beach - they waved their... More

I found the photo of this restaurant online 2 weeks after I met my new Bride. After I proposed to her I promised to take her there from Australia and I planned our entire Honeymoon around this restaurant. I read all of the reviews (which almost put me off). We knew nothing about Polignano A Mare as no one we... More
