The food was very good, service similar, but the bill was just outrageous - even a rip of. 6 oysters - 42 Euro. Fish of the day - (just some grilled brass, nice without being spectacular) - 50 Euro. A - not very large - lobster. 90 Euro !! This was our last evening in Sicily, 270 Euro for a... More

I went here with my family for dinner. The food was tasty enough but we wanted dishes from the menu but were told not available and encouraged to have "fresh fish" grilled which was charged by the weight. The fish and prawns was very expensive and served on its own. I ordered a glass of red wine and was brought... More

My Husband and I went to dinner here and ordered the fish of the day and a lobster, which we split. The fish were small-ish and hence the order of the lobster. Two fish were $30 each, the lobster was $90. We had no idea that the bill was going to be so high for such a simple meal. This... More

This place is a complete rip-off. We were overcharged spectacularly for incredibly average food. Our waiter encouraged us to try the fish of the day which turned out to be plain grilled red snapper with some simple grilled vegetables for € 24 per person. This appears to be a ploy by the owners to overcharge people by claiming they price... More

This is a smart restaurant with linen table cloths and serviettes. They have really fresh fish, which you can choose from the tank (seafood) or on ice (fish). It's priced per 100g, the catch of the day was €6 per 100g so about €20 per serving. Plus side dishes. All freshly cooked and to you requirements. We received an itemised... More

I dined here with friends, all very pleasant until the bill came with a 25 Euro charge per person for ice cream. We were cajoled into ordering dessert by the waiter without seeing a menu & when we complained at the bill, we were told 'it is special artisan ice-cream'. I'm actually fluent in Italian (but had not spoken to... More

Horrible experience. It was the only restaurant in Siccilly where the staff did so many tricks how to rob turists! They bring just a menu without drinks and then they ask if you want them to bring still or sparkling water without showing its price and at the end you find that they charge 9 Euro per one bottle. When... More

Went here without reading the reviews. The waiters repeatedly tried to force us to have 'special' fish from the fish tank. We resisted. There were no prices for wine by the glass. We asked how much for a glass of prosecco and were told 'eh...I don't know...not too much'. We ended up getting a half bottle of house white which... More

This is without doubt my most regrettable dining experience. The waiting staff and owner all seem pleasant enough and this facade deteriorates through the meal. The bill was ridiculous...70 euro for the fish main we shared. The owner kindly chose this for us and we were given no other option. The sides were poor, as was the starter. To top... More

This was a lovely restaurant however we were charged a cover of €12 (there were 4 of us) even though we sent the bread back, this I think is a hefty charge.

Nestled in the bay of Naxos to the sea and with a splendid view of Taormina for over forty years, the restaurant is managed with care and attention to detail. A food product of a modern interpretation of traditional Sicilian dishes and a wide variety of fish and shellfish along with a large supply of wines are the characteristics that distinguish it.
