Our hotel, Hotel Poseidon, recommended Ristorante La Cambusa for our first night on the town and it did not disappoint! We ordered a bottle of the local red wine, which was delicious and the bruschetta to start. For our entrees the waiter recommended a mixed fish dish when I said I was a seafood lover and it was amazing! It... More

We found this restaurant by chance Sunday noon and they were very accommodating to serve my grandson and me. Pretty decor by the beach. The seafood was delicious.

La Cambusa is definitely better value and higher quality than the other beach restaurants in Positano - you'll find cheaper & better spots inland, but this one is hard to beat if you want to be right on the water. I have fond memories of La Cambusa from visiting as a teenager about 15 years ago, and I enjoyed going... More

Nice view on the Positano beach however the food doesn't live up to this standard. This is not bad but this is not great either, just average, you can easily get the same for cheaper in a Trattoria. We had pasta and fish and pasta and lobster. The pasta were cooked ok but not much fish in the plate and... More

Visited with family and ended up walking out as much better restaurants in the town which offer better vale for money and a more welcoming greeting. Local wine is a good 10 euros more expensive than those around leaving you feeling a bit cheated.

Had a nice meal here. Food was all very good. Great setting overlooking the entire main piazza in Positano - the view is fantastic. Service was decent, but server was a bit indifferent to our being there. Still enjoyed the experience though.

I dislike being seated at a table and being immediately told to hurry because they want to close for lunch. If that is the case, don't let us in! The waiter became charming when he informed us that "no service charge" was included in the bill. The food was fine, but not memorable.

Having lunch and dinner there in the same day says something then no need to read on. The food is genuine with honest pricing and friendly service. Fresh local fish and ingredients with a small but very nice wine list. I will return when I am in Positano.
