Imagine the almost perfect cafe at the beach. We had lunch and drinks there over several days in September in between swims and sun bathing. The service was friendly, The menu of paninis and salads was varied and tasty and we managed to get good...seats in the shade with a great view of the beach. The granitas and cocktails were also good. The place has a great relaxed vibe. I look forward to returning. I said almost perfect. There is no loo there so bear that in mind before setting off for the beach from Malfa.More

Fab place on the beach in Malfa. I had a panino with anchovis capers tomatos and basil which was phenomenal. Also had a lemon granita which was excellent. Wonderful beach bar!

Wonderful little cafe by the beach for food and drinks. We ate there often, it is very atmospheric and the salads and sandwiches are very good. Very friendly owner and staff.

Based on a Lonely Planet recommendation and the outstanding tripadvisor reviews, we walked down from Malfa town to have lunch at Maracaibo. Really, it is just a shack near the beach with okay food. Our panini were dry and forgettable. Our salad was lackluster, though...we saw other patrons with more appetizing looking salads. If we had been lounging on the beach all day already it would have been a good option, but definitely not worth seeking out.More

Lovely tuna salad with bread. Gorgeous setting looking out at the sea. The paninis looked huge and the food was reasonably priced compared to other places. Only downside really was that there was no toilet. (Also no milk for a white coffee).

Amazing place with a stunning view! Absolutely must see when you’re at Salina! You can take an ‘aperitivo’ or something to eat like sandwiches etc. Friendly people and you can rent mattresses because there are a lot of stones on the beach.

Lovely spot to sit back and relax with a beer or tasty panini to break up the time on the beach. They serve a few different things including some good looking salads, soft drinks, icecreams etc. They also rent the umbrellas and lilos for the...beach which we found essential. Reasonable prices, good food and nice people.More

The beach is very nice but it's nicer with this bar/restaurant and its tenders. Indeed they are very cool and helpful (they keep our luggage all the day).

We came here for lunch 6 days out of 7. It would even be worth visiting if you weren't interested in the beach. Great value for money, very tasty food and the lady who runs it is very friendly. And outstanding views.

This is the bar at the back of the beach in Malfa. You should just plan to have lunch here if you are going to the beach, no reason to go anywhere else. The prices are incredibly reasonable, especially considering their location. We had a...salad and a few paninis, all of which were good. They also have cheap beer, which is very enjoyable looking into the beach. The only downside is they were out of a few of the items I wanted. But that is to be expected for a location as remote as this. Highly recommend overall.More

Nice beach, great service from all involved, good granitas. The best thing was the panino and the salad, however - I forgot how good such simple dishes can be, but the ingredients are fresh, everything bursting with flavor and it was one of the best...meals I had in SicilyMore
