Overall we were a bit disappointed with this restaurant given it was number 2 on trip advisor. Ambiance lovely and staff accommodating, but food was not as special as we expected.

I was visiting Eden beach club for the day and having read reviews decided to forgo their menu for Gardenia next door. Service was surprisingly very good and the waiter made a few recommendations but nothing too pushy. I had the best mussels ever, fresh,...More

This location is without question the best on the island of Ischia. The landscape is much more dramatic and beautiful than other parts where it is more flat. The apartment has two balconies and a private terrace with dining area. There is a wonderful garden...More

It was a real discovery! Had never been there before nor ever heard about them! Gardenia's location is simply breathtaking: settled in the Cartaromana Bay and opposite to the Aragonese Castle, it also faces the impressive Cliffs of S. Anna and can be reached both...More

There is no doubt that this is a lovely restaurant, in a beautiful setting, but for us it's trying too hard. If you are going from Ischia Ponte then the water taxi to the right of the castle will take you for free (the restaurant...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.
