Walking on the busy streets of Ortigia we spotted this restaurant. We hadn't read any reviews, we sat there because we liked the atmosphere, menu and it's name was suggesting a French twist to the plates and for sure a good selection of wines. After being in Sicily for one week we thought it was time to switch a by... More

We had read about the restaurant and found it early in our stay. We were not disappointed! Ate here a number of times and the food was excellent, whatever we chose from the menu. It is quite special when the Chef comes out to discuss your menu choices with you! We loved the animated and relaxed atmosphere and the opportunity... More

A pleasant change from Italian - a French restaurant, with good choice of menu, and very good food! Generous portion size, and mostly served with fried potatoes, which were lovely. Long wine list. Asked the waiter to recommend a dry white wine, and he suggested one of the cheapest on the menu, which was lovely.

We had a bruschetta starter....bacon on goats cheese..it worked...then the melt in your mouth Angus steaks supported by fried potatoes(deep fried?) A cheese dressing was supplied too..it worked too..but too much cheese ..our fault...go easy with different protein types...washed it all down with Donnafugata Davola Nero Sherazde....no room for a desert...expensive...but the best steaks...we will not forget...a rendition of Flower...

Adorable little restaurant in the heart of Siracusa with great food. If you need a break from all of the heavy traditional Italian fare, this is your place. Able to cobble together a meal with some small plates and everything was quite tasty. Lovely staff, very accommodating.

We can see why so many people are positive about this restaurant. Nice location. Great explanation of the food on the chalk board. Excellent food. We took the spring rolls and gazpaccio. As main Salmon with soja sauce and also angus steak. All in all just good. With female staff smiling and friendly it would have been perfect. Definitely recommended.

Restaurant looked busy every time we passed of a night so we made a booking and were not disappointed that we did. From the start the service was great and attentive. Food styles were explained and wine varieties described. Choose a fantastic local Chardonnay to go with the Frois Gras Maison then the Drunken Duck and Black Angus fillet with... More

No pasta and pizza here. French/Italian food. Amazing melt in your mouth steak with the best potatoes I've ever had. Tuna steak was amazing. Started with an eggplant appetizer that was divine. I also asked for a recommendation on a bottle of prosseco and it was delicious. Going back for our last meal on Ortigia. Make a reservation bec it's... More
