It was very good food. Cheese platter for starter was amazing. Cheese was good but home made onion and tomato marmalade was delicious. Main dishes was also great. Tuna steak very good and seabass covered with potato strips and cous cous, finger lick. Some more veg and bit more happy staff wouldn't hurt.

Came here because of good reviews on TripAdvisor for the food. The food was nice, although the portion of fish was incredibly small, albeit tasty. However the whole experience was ruined and we were made very uncomfortable by a 'magician' that kept coming in and disturbing the diners, and us, by imposing crap magic tricks on them and begging for...

We dined here with another couple and really enjoyed our meals. Service was attentive and very professional. We only ordered entrees and desserts. The ravioli was excellent as was the tuna. The desserts didn't live up to the entrees but they erre acceptable.

La Cambusa is a restaurant in Piazza Marina. Delightful sitting in the open air on a warm evening listening to the kids playing in the piazza. The food was very good with an excellent mixed antipasti of local ingredients followed by sea bass covered in a rosti type potato. The wine was good. The restaurant was crowded with locals, always...

La Cambusa was reccommended as a good restaurant but for us it was only ok. The food was good and the prices avarage. Nothing special. What bothered us were the people passing by the tables with performances asking for money while you are eating. This was not fair...
