October 23, 2013 my wife & I had an excellent lunch dining experience at this wonderfully-situated ristorante. Good wine, appetizers, fish, cannily. Waiter was helpful, pleasant,and attentive, but not intrusive. Greek temples View was truly delightful. Good value.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

We decided to pop in before temples and believe me or not – one of the best decisions what we could made. Amazing food, friendly staff, cool atmosphere… Gosh I want to be there again! PS: Try mussels soup…

“Good dinner near the temples”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We finished our night tour of the temples in July and needed a restaurant near our hotel that would serve us at 10PM. We picked Il Re di Girgenti because of the TripAdvisor reviews and our hotel recommended it as well. We were warmly greeted at 10 PM without reservations, our only penalty being that we couldn't be seated on their terrace that had a lovely view of the temples (it was full). They served us a welcoming glass of prosecco, and then the 4 of us shared a mixed antipasti. The teenager of our party ordered a lasagnetta, which our he pronounced "good", I had a risotto, which was just OK, and our other 2 split a large fish dish which they liked. We shared a nice bottle of Grillo. The service was a bit slow, and the cost of the meal was fairly high. But overall, we enjoyed our meal.

I'd recommend driving here and not walking (as we tried to do from our hotel) because the restaurant is on a dark stretch of the road and there is no sidewalk. There is plenty of parking.

“Delicious food with superb view !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Trying to take a night visit to Valley of the Temple,we have to wait for a couple of hour ,to 8 pm ,to open,so we had time for dinner,and since the restaurant was close and based on the good reviews we decided to try it.
The restaurant is just outside Agrigento,on the main road leading to temples,with good parking facilities. Be aware that the opening restaurant hours are from 19 pm,the kitchen opens only at 8 pm !
We had the opportunity to got seated on the terrace,with outstanding view to temples lighted in the night.
The food was delicious : we tried fillet of black Neibrodi pig with Nero D'Avola,perfect cooked,and swordfish with orange,the best fish plate ever .
The price was reasonable,so a nice experience all in all.

“great food & service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

We were sat on the terrace overlooking the temples lit up at night. We were greeted with an apertivo which we followed up with 2 apps, the zucchini flan & the carpaccio. The zucchini flan is up there as one of the best things I'd eaten while in Sicily! It was over ricotta which was so light and topped with pistachios...SO good!! The carpaccio was good as well. All of the food was delicious and the service extremely pleasant and attentive!
