“special night out”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We went to this restaurant on the advice of a tour guide who told us it was the best restaurant near the hotel we were staying at (atahotel capotaormina). the meal began with an amuse bouche of beef tartare and was followed by seared scallop soup, grouper stew, lamb chops, and pasta with shrimp. desert was a chocolate mousse with chocalate cracker.the restaurant itself is beautifully presented with a view of the ocean as an extra. each dish was not only well prepared, but also delightful to look at. prices were a little high, but in line with the quality of food and service.

“Very Average”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We went here for a meal to celebrate our honeymoon, as we were a bit good distance from taorimina, we got a taxi to take us here as it is not on the centre of taorimina. The walk way down to the restaurant was beautiful and when we were there, there was a tunderstorm so it was beautiful to watch. As a previous review said the food was only average, nothing special at all, we got the tasting menu which was all fish based and was very boring, the full menu itself was very similar, not a big choice. The desserts however were the highlight, beautiful! Finally, don't get a shock when the bill arrives, extremely expensive and over priced. I would not recommended going here specially but if you stumble across it, it is worth a visit.

“Great food, great service, great restaurant !!”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Enchanting restaurant overlooking the sea, With a great atmosphere. The restaurant staff was fenced off in order to make our visits. The food was meticulous and delicious. The desserts are delicious!

“Experience to remember......”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We went to this restaurant to celebrate my husbands 60th, what a treat! Excellent food, friendly staff and beautiful location.

As you walk down the steps to the restaurant you are met by tables full of beautiful candles, all tables had white flower decorations and jasmin was growing everywhere. Although u could hear the traffic in the background once you were seated, wine flowing and the food started to appear you soon forgot about it and just enjoyed your surroundings and the lovely tasters the restaurant offered you between courses.

Highly recommend, not cheap but definately worth it!

“Elegant lunch”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We heard this restaurant is very popular for special occasions so we decided to drop in for lunch when we had the place to ourselves. The setting is very romantic with views across the bay. Service was outstanding and food was excellent. I had a lamb ragout on pasta and our meals came with lots of little treats to enjoy afterwards.
