“Fantastic treat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

The restaurant although not fancy looking from the outside, has a sea view and an appealing interior.
The service is excellent and knowingly. The received an English menu and the waiter presented a plate of the fish available, so we could see what we would eat. In addition, he had a fish pocket book to look up fish names in other languages and for a brief description.

The guilt head was served in a pizza dough covered casserole with fresh capers - delicious. They also serve pasta and pizza if fish is not to your liking.
You can skip over both the shrimp appetizers though. The shrimp were defrosted and slightly expensive for what you get.

You can choose from a variety of wines for moderate prices, also in comparison to other restaurants in the region.

In conclusion, this is a recommendable restaurant. You can enjoy a variety of fresh and tasty fish dishes, a competent service and the sea view.

“Delicious sea food right above the sea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

We found this excellent restaurant by using the best method - looking inside and seeing it full of local people. It never fails! We had the best possible table just above the sea and what is better than eating fresh fish looking over the big waves to horizon and have a glass of good white wine. There were various delicious antipasti and a great surprise as a second dish - a whole fish under the bread cover. The staff was really friendly and it was a delight itself to see how our waiter opened the bread cover and revealed the beautiful fish. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the friendly owner came to chat.

“Location, location, location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

This excellent fish restaurant is situated right on the beach in Marina di Ragusa. It's no beach shack, though! The food is fantastic. I finally tried sea urchin which was delicious and the main course tuna probably the best ever - a nice spicy crust on the outside, pink inside and served on wonderful sweet and sour onions. Pasta with squid and zucchini and mixed grilled fish were good, too. The wine list is long but, unfortunately, quite a few bottles are not actually available. There are plenty of staff and service is efficient. Only the head waiter could make more of an effort to be friendly and helpful.

“Don't bother!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Service was terrible - seating was on plastic chairs - poor value for money - food was average - poor selection of Sicilian cuisine -- very disappointing.
