We went twice to Gardenia, one of the loveliest beaches I have ever visited (and I have visited a lot in my time!) It is a tiny, sheltered, sandy cove circled by elegant umbrellas and loungers, and has a sweeping view of the Bay of Naples. Swimming in the silky water around the tiny rocky islands is delightful and to... More

We arrived there because the good reputation here in the website. Unfortunately,it was one of our worst meal in italy. 20 euro for burnt fish, 16 euro for 4 small shrimps. Anyway, undoubtedly not worth the money.

This is the second time I ate here. I came with my students. The food is delicious and beautiful. I ate a linguine with Vongole and it was so tasty. The bread is very good to especially the thin ones. Even the tiramisu is very good. The staff are friendly and funny and the music is great. I'm going to... More

My wife and I visited Gardenia Mare for lunch on our anniversary. Simply catch the bus from Ischia Port. The location is quite idyllic; secluded, with views of the Castle and the occasional "passing traffic" of luxury yachts. But the food and service were the stars. Our waiter, when we advised my wife is gluten free, immediately adjusted our order.... More

WOW. I mean, just WOW. Soooo pretty! Lots of sunloungers, friendly staff, beverage service at your lounge chair, clean bathrooms & they rent beach towels, as well. As guests of the hotel next door (Delfini), we paid the reduced daily fee of I think 8 euro each--absolutely worth it! The water was crisp, but definitely swimmable mid-September. We loved it....

Gardenia Mare is a first class sea food restaurant that also has a secluded, safe beach and sun terrace together with apartments. We ate there for the entirety of our fortnights holiday on Ischia, also staying in one of the garden apartments, quite confident that there was no better restaurant on the Island. Every dish, whether for lunch or dinner,... More

My wife and I ate here for lunch on Sunday (our last day in Ischia). Was our third time in Ischia but our first time in this restaurant. It had been recommended to us by people and staff from our hotel. The restaurant is located to the right of Ischia Ponte. We had intended to travel by boat taxi but... More

Magic! We couldn't ask for a better place where to enjoy the most beautiful view of all the Ischia Island. The restaurant is nestled between the Scogli Sant'Anna just in front of the majestic Castello Aragonese. Easy access to this place by bus or taxi, when I called the Restaurant they kindly explained how to get there. We were welcomed... More

What a place!!! Pity that we have to leave. Access is either by road. or by boat (from Ischia Ponte). Beach resort is rather small this maintaining a certain exclusivity ! Be careful that place is always full, so better book table AND sunbeds in advance). Ask Silvano for a place in shadow if u have small children. Service at... More

Always open for LUNCH and DINNER. There is a small sand bay peeking the Aragonese Castle, where time passes slowly and enjoyable. You can pamper yourself at the beach or choose the lawn, swimming among the rocks of Sant'Anna and explore the beautiful seabed. You can relax amidst the scents of the garden and enjoy delicious Mediterranean cuisine of our chef, in the evening, for an intimate dinner and enveloping. The Gardenia Mare every moment of the day is pure pleasure.
