Sat down and at the next table the waiter had just cast Parmesan all over a lady's dinner which she had not asked for, when she said she hated the cheese topping he did not offer to replace it, so she decided to eat it anyway. We got up and left...

One of the restaurants that face the Positano beach that has excellent and attentive service with very well prepared food in a busy atmosphere.

Tonight we decided to eat here as we had heard good reviews. I checked Trip Adviser and the reviews looked good on here too. We were not disappointed! We felt very welcome from the minute we walked in. A lady spoke to us in the doorway and then although we had not booked we were invited to choose one of... More

I'm usually a picky eater especially when it comes to seafood, but Cambusa really blew my mind! The seafood was very fresh and perfectly cooked, the flavor was well balanced and spot on. The pasta was also perfect! The best part is that it sits right on the beach, so you can enjoy your meal with a million dollar view.... More

Went here on our first night and it was lovely! Beautiful setting, my boyfriend had the anchovies which were AMAZING then we both had on our pasta dishes. I had the spaghetti vongole (spaghetti with clams) and it was delicious! Amazing location and prices pretty reasonable- would recommend!

Excellent location with commanding views of the Spiagga Grande - service equally as good but the food is average at best and prices are high due to the location - this was our second visit having been in 2014 - things have not improved that much. Restaurants in this location do not need to try very hard when it comes... More

Our tour driver recommended this place, and we're glad he did! The setting is perfect - the restaurant is just above the beach, with a view of the sea. The food was great, particularly the Spaghetti alle vongole - it was so delicious I'd travel back just for that dish! The only drawback was that the service was a bit... More

The atmosphere in this restaurant was very nice, we ate here 2 times during our 8 day trip to Positano, once for lunch and once for dinner. For dinner they give you a free glass of proseco as you sit down and after a free lemoncello. The food was very good, for lunch I had the lobster with linguine which... More

My girlfriend and I had a late breakfast and had decided to stop in and enjoy a bottle of wine and relax. The waiter was friendly and brought us a bottle of water then when he came back and we informed him we just wanted a bottle of wine he told us we had to eat or leave. So we... More
