Localisation near the sea, but La Cambusa give us small plate of sea food with nothing special taste, but with very expensive price. We wait to make the order 45 min, and wait for dinner 60 min...

This restaurant was one of the very few open in the middle of winter. There were few people in the restaurant yet service was slow - one person serving when there seemed to be more staff around. The food was very ordinary.

I was there with a copule of friends. This was one of the few places open there during the winter period and this was the only reason I was there. The sea food- if you are in Positano you are going to eat sea food- was not adeguate with the quality of environment and with the money to will spend.... More

My husband and I took a semi-private day trip from Rome to Amalfi in mid-January and our tour guide recommended Ristorante La Cambusa for lunch so we decided to sit outside on their patio which overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea. While the service was a bit slow, life in Italy as compared to the pace in the US is much slower... More

We couldn't wait to try this place after reading a lot of the reviews. Service is slow and strange. The place is kept very cool for the winter so bring a jacket. The food was terrible. My husband had the steak dinner. The steak dinner came with just one this slice of grilled fatty steak and a lemon wedge for... More

This place was really good. We ordered whole fish (bass) which arrived on a beautiful plate, definitely fresh catch, with wonderful potato and tomato sides. The price was really good. We really enjoyed the whole experience. The sauce served with the fish was otherworldly.

We were greeted by the friendliest server, kissed by the lovely owner and stuffed by the chef! We dined on Linguinie All'Astice and Spaghetti con Zucchine. Tremendous! The service was phenomenal and the view spectacular. This is equally as nice for families and the servers are happy to be there. BIG THUMBS UP!

After a gorgeous, harrowing drive, beautiful Ristorante Cambusa has the best location on the black sand beach, overlooking the cliffs and the ocean. Delightful staff were courteous and knowledgeable. Our fresh pasta with Langoustine (lobster)and fresh spaghetti Alla Vongole (clams) was first rate. Wine selection was excellent as well. Nice to know you can have both great location and views...

After reading good reviews on this site, we chose La Cambusa among the small number of restaurants open in the off-season for lunch on a Friday afternoon. A table on the patio with an ocean view was nice. However, for the price, the pasta was only mediocre particularly compared to prior and subsequent Sorrento meals, and the service was slow.... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by our driver, Luigi De Martino in Positano. We had dinner here, a nice little restaurant with a beautiful view of the water. We found service to be slow, and inattentive, and our meal when it finally arrived, was average. It was a weekday night when we dined, and the restaurant was not busy,... More
