Lunch near the Fish Market

We were hoping to find a nice seafood restaurant for lunch, but a few we looked at had either mixed reviews, were closed on a Wednesday or only open for dinner. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Barb

The website hasn't been updated - They are open every day of the week for lunch. I just contacted directly.

Thanks, will do.

Wrong forum, but would you also recommend reservations for restaurants in Taormina?

Hi Barb,

I've since checked with Osteria Antica Marina, and they do recommend reserving in advance.

And yes, with a specific date and restaurant in mind, why not book in Taormina? - Especially if a top reviewed and popular TA restaurant?

Your hotel might book in the morning for that evening for you.
