Wonderful location overlooking the sea, on the outskirts of town. Beautifully presented and tasting starter, pasta good although over salted, and very friendly service.

Cefalu is quite a busy touristy town on the mainland of Sicily. There are lots of small paved streets but very few places to eat outside. We wandered around and found the top TripAdvisor place but it was closed with no signs when it opened. Also we thought as it was early September it would be good to sit outside... More

We visited here for my birthday. It was wonderful in every way. We sat on the terrace watching the sun go down. All cocktails are five euros, wine is excellent and reasonably priced. Service was polite, efficient and plenty of English spoken. But the food was in a different class- absolute perfection! We all had different starters: my husband was... More

If you want to eat here first make sure you are hungry or don't order more than two courses. Second they don't take reservations so if you're not here by 7.30 it will be full and you will have a long wait. And people waited. And third there were no meat mains on the menu it's all fish though there... More

Just outside the old town. Perfect for lunch/drinks with panoramic views of the mediterranean. Possible to sunbathe/swim right next to it. Worth a visit!

We ate there three times during our stay. Slightly off the main street up the hill towards the lighthouse but great location, very good staff and sensible, good quality menu using good ingredients. Can recommend the swordfish with pistacchio crust and potatoes! If you are lucky you can get free parking on the road that leads to the port.

Great selection of mainly fish dishes on offer, which were very well presented. Efficient service from a small outdoor staff team, who had a good level of English and were available when required. Hope you are lucky enough to find a table and enjoy the great sea setting and food!

The service was rude and unpleasant, they did not not welcome us (yes, it was 20 min. to opening, OK). So we cannot judge the state of cuisine art. It is easily accesible by walking from the Cefal center, but in a quite area. So it loked nice for luch. Judging from the menu it is in up mid scale... More

We had walked past this restaurant during the day in an effort to find restaurants a little of the beaten track. On a Thursday night, early for Sicily, 8.00pm,we took the Last table outside. Overlooking the sea and sunset it is a lovely spot. Fortunately the food is also worth visiting for. A mixed antipasti plate was shared to start... More

We ate here 3 times during our stay. After being lured into various uninspiring places with terraces virtually in the sea that provided poor food we found the faro. It is at the far east end of cefalu as far as you can go before the new marina. Staff friendly. Food simple but good. The homemade pasta with bacon and... More
