We went to this restaurant because of it's unique night view of the temples. However, the meal was so exquisite that we hardly viewed the spectacular view of the Greek temples. Sicilian specialities were traditional with a modern twist to them. The pasta fish dishes were just perfect. Absolute must is their prickly pear tart with accompanying almond gelato.

We had a wonderful dinner at 10:30 pm here after an evening tour at the Valle dei Templi (the Giunone entrance and parking is just 4 km away). The outdoor tables overlook the Valle and grant a lo amazing view on some of the Temples. Food was delicious and made of fresh local ingredients - including some regional products labeled... More

First dont be mislead by the tiny nonrepresentative entrance! The great view is hiden behind the white walls of the gasoline station. We went in a small group for business dinner and this was an exceptional experience. My choice was raw fishes of Mediterian for appetizer and steak with fois gras for main course. Mixture of tastes was perfect and... More

This restaurant doesn't open until 8:00 (in July) but well worth the wait. We came back just after 8:30 and had our choice of tables. The place was filled by 10:00 so it was worth getting there a little early. Service and food were terrific and not too pricey considering that and its location. It overlooks "The Valley of Temples"... More

My wife and I are staying at the Villa Athena which has a very nice restaurant, but we wanted to try something different. Based on other TA reviews we went to the Akropolis. We had an 8am reservation on a Sunday night and were the first ones there. The restaurant has a very nice outdoor patio with wonderful views of... More

This is a lovely restaurant, with a view overlooking the valley, with the temples on the other side. If the weather permits, dine al fresco and enjoy the atmosphere as well as the view. The food was excellent and the wine selection was too.

We didn't find much worth visiting in Agrigento outside the Valley of Temples and the museum except this restaurant. We walked from the museum to town, where everything was closed because it was a Sunday. We had seen the sign for this restaurant on our way to town and decided to stop for lunch on our way back. The front... More
