“Yum!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

This is a lovely, little restaurant run by a Dutch woman and her son. The food was just outstanding, and the service was great. Be sure to make reservations, as the place is packed every night.

“Chrisbob”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

One of the best and one of the cheaper restuarants in Cefalu. We visited it twice and were surprised that the waiter even remembered the dishes we had ordered on the first visit. It is better to reserve a table rather than just turn up. As there is only one waiter and one cook, you can find that if the restuarant is very busy, you may have to wait to be served. However the food is worth it.

“A very special restaurant”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

A very special restaurant with only two persons in staff, a mother and her son. It worked, though we had to wait rather long for our dinner. But the restaurant was full of people, it was understandable and during the two hours we sat there, they had to refuse about 30 persons which hade not made a reservation for the evening! A place to really recommend but do make a reservation in advance.

“High level home cooking”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

La Brace is highly praised by many reviewers and we were not disapponted. Low season meant they were probably low on staff as there was only one very busy waiter. He managed OK, was friendly, but was not able to service at a high level.
The food was very good. We had sea bass and lamb. The food was not presented much differently from other tourist restaurants but the taste was superb and fish/meat cooked to perfection. The wine we chose was sold out, but the alternative was the best we had in Sicily. Will certainly recommend this place. Other places in Cefalu are mostly of poor quality.

“Easily No 1”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

After trying on three occasions we were finally able to get a table and it was well worth the wait.
The food was excellent, the service was first class despite the whole affair being run by one excellent chef and one very busy waiter/barman. It is small and a little cramped but it is truly is a joy to eat there because it is obvious that they are passionate about their food and the standards they achieve. Understandably number one and to avoid disappointment we recommend that you make an early reservation whether in high or low season.
