“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

The restaurant has a nice view of Taormina and a nice beach front. We ordered pizza and pasta and both were delicious. The pizza was absolutely fine, but the size of my pasta was tiny, like four spoonfuls on my plate. I’m not a big eater, but it wouldn’t be enough for a kid either. Maybe this was only a one-off occasion. Anyway, I complained and the only English speaking waiter arranged another one for me. He was really nice and helpful, unlike other member of staff. To sum it up, good food, good location, reasonable price, service varies.

“Not at all impressed”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Very average pizza, unpleasant fried fish. Staff friendly and helpful, but didn't enjoy the food. Nice beach front setting, and busy with families.

Good location, good food and good price. We shared a pizza and fries, had a bottle of water and 2 drinks and all came to less that 20 euro

“Beachside dining”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The Sayonara Restaurant has a varied menu with some very good seafood/fish pasta dishes. It is tidy and reasonably smart for such a location and good value. The staff are efficient and welcoming. The Sayonara is located on the Lungomare (promenade) at Giardini Naxos beach. The restaurant has it's own beach area equipped with sunloungers, umbrellas, etc.
Overall, a very good place to relax and dine. There is parking available along the Lungomare, though it does get very busy.
