“Expensive and not good!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

I went here for lunch as recommeded by my guide book. However, a rather poor salad was twice the price of much better ones I ate elsewhere in Taormina. Coffee OK but also twice the price of anywhere else. Little atmosphere in the cafe,nice views from it but little else!

“not so special and expensive”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

In need of a coffee break and a rest while trekking the length of Corso Umberto I, we stopped at the "famous" Wunderbar. Yes it has a beautiful setting with views of the piazza, the coastline, Etna, the musicians...but you don't need the cafe to enjoy those.
Over €20 for 2 slices of Cassata and 2 coffees is somewhat over the top and that didn't include a gratuity. To be fair, the service from our waiter was prompt and he was civil if a little straight-faced. Maybe, it comes alive in the evening but it didn't sparkle for us and there are plenty of other places.
We were only in Taormina for the afternoon and we can say we visited at the Wunderbar... Nothing special and we would probably try elsewhere another time.

“Stunning views with average service”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We stopped here briefly to admire the view and grab a drink. The espresso and drinks were good, but you are definitely paying extra for the view. The location is very convenient, but the service was just average, which was disappointing given the cost. We read so many reviews saying this was the place to go, but we all agreed that it didn't live up to the hype.

“NIce view, otherwise you can do better elsewhere”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We travelled with friends and stopped here a couple of times. We had only drinks here. Drink price just ablout doubled in the evening, probably to help pay for the musical entertainment. Evening cocktails for our group cost us about 15 euros each...you can do better elsewhere.
