Visited this place a few times now: they offer good value for money if you order. Frito misto or local fish of the day. On the other hand - they are not that friendly and please stay away from any sea food or sea food pasta.. This is not up to standard.

On the recommendation of our landlady, we decided to give this place a try. My husband is a chef and more adventurous eater than I am, especially when it comes to seafood, and I want site what we were in for, but game to give it a try. To start, we ordered the insalata di mare, which was a cooked... More

This hidden gem serves all typical local flavours of Calabria. The fried fish is awesome. The Filej pasta with fish or tropea style are super tasty. House wine is good quality. Try the truffle ice cream dessert. It is a local specialty. Also worthy a shot of the local liquorice liquor to help digesting after dinner.

How can a seafood restaurant, supposedly specialising in seafood, located in a seaside town, serve off fish! Our fried seafood platter had (amongst other fish) 2 whole fish, one of which was completely off. It smelled off and was completely mushy and my husband tasted a little bit and said it was digusting - it was deep fried and so... More

I went few years ago, then with friends and we all loved it. I came back yesterday and Filejas a la Tropeana are always great though its fish is the specialty. Also antipasto fish was great and the recommended us a wine that we loved. Incredible dinner!

We went as a group of four to this charming fish Restaurant. This establishment is run by a husband and wife team. He is the host and she is the chef. There is no wine card nor can one order ala carte. The formula is simple.... A five course menu comprised of different types of fish from Lake Garda. They... More

First time and it was a great experience. Owner was taking the order himself and he was funny and full of suggestions for us. Food was delicious. House wine was really good.

My wife and I have been coming to Tropea for a number of years and one of the attractions is the local food. Like most, we are creatures of habit, and have been going back to the same two or three restaurants whenever we visit. We have always promised ourselves that we will try another restaurant, and this one came... More

The swordfish was overcooked, the fish croquette antipasto was dry, the mixed seafood pasta was mostly rubbery octopus, the shrimp special was a lot of shell and not much crustacean to actually eat...

This seems to be a family which catches its own fish. Nothing fancy here. We shared the seafood appetizer then had a swordfish dish and a daily special of three different "fish of the day". A liter of local wine was E6. The whole bill was E66. What could be bad! Cash was preferred if not required.

Thank john w
