Tired after a day sightseeing, we came out of our hotel in the evening planning to go back into the old town for dinner. Then my wife spotted this restaurant - 20 metres from our hotel. It looked like an interesting building so we decided to give it a try. Downstairs was a par which becomes a disco at the... More

We decided to eat here as the restaurant was next to our hotel. I booked on Mytable. The reservation was accepted. A reminder as well as a confirmation e mail was sent to us. As the restaurant was by the hotel we decided to have a look at it as we went out at 19.15 for a pre supper drink.... More

I was here two times. One time for supper with friends and another time to dance. It's a perfect place to spend free time!

Our hotel made a reservation on our request because we wanted to try the atmosphere. Our hotel did not recommend this place and now we know why. Extremly unfriendly staff, we had a reservation for the terasse but when we came there all was blocked by a private party. They wanted us to sit inside in a very small room... More

The restaurant is not easy to find but once you find it, you will "wow" because the inside is so special . Service is good. Food is good with pretty big portion. We can hardly eat any dessert .

Very nice atmosphere, nice service, good prices!!!! If you are in Palermo you have to go there! Not that easy to find the place cos they have no terrace outside but use google map or ask the taxi driver.

We started off outside but it was a bit chilly so when we asked to move inside, it was no trouble at all. Lovely anti pasti and... More

We discovered KK early in our 11 days in Palermo, and just kept going back - twice for the wine bar section, once for the restaurant. We highly recommend the wine bar. The staff were warm, friendly and very knowledgeable about the wide variety of wines available by the glass. KK is set inside part of an old Arab building... More

When you walk in you are awed by the height of the room in which there is a bar and library. The restaurant is upstairs in a covered courtyard. The food was not cheap for palermo but it was some of the best we are in palermo. Unfortunately my wife's main course was sea bass with Cous Cous and was... More
