Fresh food and good flavours - the location is nice and the staff friendly. The only negative thing is that we had to wait about an hour for our food (not only us, but also the tables around) - might have been a one off...night? Anyway, they were forgiven since the food was really good.More

We went to this courtyard restaurant, following the suggestion of friends on our daily trip to Favignana. This place is near the well known Cala Rossa. We followed the suggestions of the friendly palermitan waiter Salvo, and I ordered a Tagliata di Tonno with Pesto...alla Siciliana, and my girlfriend the Busiate al pomodoro e ricotta, and the mixed appetizers. We could enjoy great Panelle and Caponata, the best of our 2 week stay in Sicily. And my Tagliata was a big tasty Tuna steak, better than the one I had in trapani, properly done. The price is average high. All of this in a beautiful courtyard. The owners were also very friendly and likable. They deserve the nice reviews.More

Are you up for tasting some tuna? Then go to this Cavallo bar restaurant. The menu is quite mono thematic but I have tasted a very nice “Tonno ammutato” dish which was a tuna steak in two slices of fried eggplant with a mountain of...shredded Cale and Pecorino cheese. The Antipasto Cavallo is good for 2 people. P.s. bring the “Autan” anti-mosquitoes with you.More

The staff at Bar Cavallo know good food and they serve it with the same love with which it is prepared. Their dishes are novel. Where else can you find tuna meatballs and tuna sausage? Everything else is fantastic and the classics are a notch...above everyone else's. Mussels impeteta was so good that my wife could not stop raving about the intricate flavors in the sauce. The fish is fresh and caught the day it is prepared. Save room for dessert because Bar Cavallo's rendition of Cassata is to die for. When we are here in Favignana, we visit Bar Cavallo on multiple occasions.More

We had a bit early lunch. Starter parmigiana tuna was really nice with local taste, pasta busiata was so fresh. However the best of this restaurant was the service we got. The waiter kindly helped our child changing his diaper. Their English was not fluent...though we could communicate nicely.More

And, as a matter of fact, one of the best restaurants I've ever visited. My job involves a lot of travelling and dining out. This place is simply amazing. You have to try the Pasta Finocchietto e Sarde as well as the Tonno ammuttato. On...top of this you will meet the most professional and kind waiters of the island. Highly recommendedMore

I visited this restaurant with my friends as we wanted something special for our friend's birthday. The location was perfect- the outdoor seating area in the garden was very pleasant. The food was good, nothing extraordinary however. The portions were not as I expected. I...ordered king prawns, and all I had were 4 tiny prawns in a plate. The bottarga pasta was definitely the best dish from the whole menu.More

Great food - but could do without the cheesy games and loud music (we weren't up for a Club Med experience after a very long, hot journey to get to the island). We just wanted a quiet, romantic meal... Love the island though... We went...there for peace....!More
