This is the most incredible place to dine. Regarding the food, it's absolutely fine, not bad at all, I had lovely fish courses and a great dessert. The same goes for the service, I found it to be good. You are paying to enter the most majestic dining setting that will leave you completely stunned and awestruck during and afterwards... More

Except for the location, nothing is worth this expensive adventure. For 2 meals, a bottle of water, 1 tea and 1 glass of wine we paid €120. The service was terrible: we received a table in the middle of the terrace and as we hadn't received our meal yet, I asked the waiter if he would be able to move... More

This was probably my worst dining experience ever.,! Really €40 euro for a plate of pasta that was greasy and had little flavour. €10 per person cover charge? There are some great restaurants inPolignano with good ambience and lovely food. Far superior quality to this overpriced establishment. I have paid less in Michelin Star restaurants. I came away feeling as... More

The restaurant is very beautiful, it is definitely a perfect place for special celebrations. Food was great, portions quite small as you would expect from fancy restaurant. They had amazing selection of wines and staff was knowledgeable enough to give advice. Only downfall is the cost. It is very expensive! Top restaurants in London, Paris or Rome charge similar prices... More

This place had the most awful food that I had misfortune to sample anywhere. The setting of the restaurant is quite interesting Not as spectacular as suggested. Total waste of time with some cold and arrogant service. My friends payed a fortune for very forgettable experience, would not recommend even to a mice
