Unfortunately, the wind picked up the night we ate here but the view is STUNNING. Food was good too - expensive, but so are all the good restaurants in Taormina. Romantic, secluded and quite different in feel to the other posh restaurants in town.

The night before our wedding we hosted our family dinner on the stunning rooftop of the Hotel. It was very hot during our stay and the cool evening breeze up top was so welcoming and pleasant. The great wine was plentiful and the food was delicious and beautifully presented especially the amazing whole giant fish dish. A great time was had by all and we ended the evening sipping cocktails whilst admiring the smoke plumes of Mount Etna

if you are a foodie snob then you could probably pick holes in this place, for us it was a special night. The whole package, food, view, and service added up to a special evening. We had 6 nights in Taormina and set out to eat in the top 6 restaurants as set out in trip advisor, this was the most expensive but not by much, and it was worth the extra for the setting. I think i counted 7 tables all set for 2 , so you know what to expect.
Service was friendly and informed, we were made to feel valued customers, the food looked stunning and tasted wonderful, not your rustic Sicilian fare, but again there are some great restaurants in Taormina who can do that much better.
Book for around 7.30 to 8 ish to get the best from the setting, and book midweek, to avoid the crowds that pour in at the weekends.

After reading all these nice reviews we decided to go check this place, the ambience is very posh...too posh! the place looked like a wedding room. the food is overpriced , looks nice but doesn't taste good. We ordered fish and you don't expect to eat tasteless fish in one of the gem of the mediterranean. Avoid
