The place itself is very inviting but I wouldn't be fooled.

Yes they serve fresh seafood, yes it overlooks the sea (just) and yes they have an outdoor BBQ.

BUT. The service is chaotic, the prices are ridiculous for what you're actually receiving (would be ok if the food was great), the portions are tiny - €15 for main course of 5 shrimps (no salad or anything to accompany). Also kept getting pestered by people wanting to sell flowers/toys/singing.

You can get all this in other close bye restaurants with better portions, service and taste for half the price.

Quite simply the most miserable bunch of staff in Sicily I would wager, however, the ice cream palour a little further up come a close 2nd !!.

We had a fantastic meal at Trattoria del Pesce Fresco "Il Vecchio Mafoni" in downtown Palermo. There are such dichotomous reviews that I suspect there may be two unrelated restaurants with similar names in different Palermo locations. I have posted the yellow sign from the front of the restaurant up with the photos on this site. It was a clean, tiny, friendly restaurant on a back street in downtown Palermo. I grew up on the ocean so I am **very** fussy about freshness and cooking, but the seafood was fresh, fresh, fresh and cooked to perfection. The staff were super-friendly. The cost was reasonable. The decor was so-so - but that's usually the case at the best restaurants in Sicily. Our experience may have been helped by the native Italian spoken by some members of our party.
