We really loved the food here and the atmosphere is very nice as well. The prices were not too bad either for a popular place, and the portions were generous. My favorite: the octopus. Service was not very active, always felt like you really had to make a lot of effort to get their attention.

We went to Amarea part way through our holiday and had such a wonderful meal that we went back for our last meal in Bordighera. The food was awesome on both occasions and we would go back in a heartbeat the next time we are in Bordighera.

We had a wonderful dinner here, everything was absolutely spotless. Starting from the service, kind and knowledgeable. The wine guy found the best white to match with our order of fish. We tried a bit if everything as we were a party of five. Nothing was less than perfect. The Calamari with buffalo mozzarella and the octopus, as starters, were... More

The service is wonderful here. The food is awesome. I had the cod which was over a potato with spinach, it was fantastic! My boyfriend had the frito misto which was also excellent. All plates beautifully presented and appealing. The desert a work of art! Highly recommended!

Absolutely delightful. Recommended by a local and what a good surprise. I believe we were the only partly foreigners (by partner is Italian). I had fritto misto as a starter and fried stockfish, memorable, both. And to finish, the best since I first tried this in London around 1999, a beautiful and delicious Pavlova!! :-) Goodness this was so good...... More

We had a marvellous dinner of seafood made effortlessly. Everything was beautifully prepared and piping hot. The desserts were picture perfect- especially the apple crumble, pavlova (meringue) with cream and berries and the chocolate mousse. Definitely not a place to eat everyday- too many calories but phenomenal in an unpretentious way.

Thank BrooklynPigna
