I was recommended this restaurant from friends that normally like to eat well and they were right. This restaurant on Positano beach has a very good style and the food is amazing. We ordered mixed seafood entree and it was delicious as the main. Highly recommend it

Don't go!!! Went to Italy for two weeks years ago and this trip was ten days and didn't think there was a bad meal to be had in all of Italy. I was wrong. This was absolutely horrible. If I cooked this meal at home I would not have dared serve it to people, I would have thrown it in... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we were extremely pleased. We had a three course meal which was very good with a yummy 25 euro bottle of Tuscan white wine. What a great deal and lovely evening it's awesome service.

Everything was really good and our waiter, Rafael, made it a great evening. I changed my mind and got the fish, and Rafael was more than obliging. The fish was fantastic, my hubbie had the mixed seafood, which was done perfectly. The appetizer could have been better. We ordered squash flower and eggplant fritter. Really nice setting right on the... More

View was beautiful although early dinner would have a nicer view as it gets very dark at night in that area. They provided shuttle pick up and drop off to and from the hotel. The food was overall good but I recommend the Octopus appetizer, was delicious, by far one of the best we have tried!

Hands down, La Cambusa is the best seafood restaurant I have ever been to in my entire life. Every time I visit the Amalfi Coast, I pay a visit to this beautiful place. I always have "gamberoni alla griglia" (grilled shrimp), they are to die for. The view is spectacular, as it oversees the beach in Positano, and it's centrally... More

We had several wonderful meals up on the hill streets of Positano. Our hotel concierge recommended La Cambusa for a change, and while we were hesitant to eat at a place located in "tourist central", we went with her recommendation. Unfortunately, our experience ended up being what we thought it might be ... the good: an excellent location with a... More

Restaurante La Cambusa is definitely worth a visit. Situated in an elevated position over looking the beach it provides excellent views. The waiting staff are very friendly, the service is superb, and the menu offers something for everyone. When ordering fish you can select the fish you want and it is weighed to give you an idea of the price.... More
