We had dinner here on a Monday night, so it may have been a case of lacking the energy the restaurant might have on a busy night. It is down along the beach where many of the main tourist restaurants are, but seemed to be a bit more authentic. While we enjoyed the food, there are far more quaint places... More

We went for lunch at this place. The restaurant is situated first floor facing the beach. The view is marvellous. Food wise is pretty good. Should give it a go if you want a good view over your meal.

We had coffee at La Cambusa and sat at a table upstairs on the terrace with amazing views of the beach at Positano. The coffee and pastries were excellent and very good value for the location.

We met friends in Positano and had lunch together at La Cambusa. Enjoyed a nice view and good seafood lunch. Waiter was nice & food was good.

We asked our hotel for a local restaurant down near the sea front, good for a simple lunch. Cambusa was one of three recommended, and for us was a good choice. We ate on the patio at street level rather than the higher level terrace, which was fine, and gave us plenty of people watching. The food we chose was... More

We went here for the last meal of our honeymoon and were incredibly disappointed. Our starters were bland and our mains were even worse. I ordered the mixed fried fish which turned out to be deep fried mixed seafood, none of which tasted fresh and there was no taste at all. I was so sad to pay the incredibly high... More

Service was good, food just ok. Good place for people watching, as it is right near the big public beach.

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
