Excellent spaghetti with bottarga, fair caprese, nice desserts...Location quiet and with a very good view on the harbour, service friendly (the owner especially more than the boy with sunglasses serving). However price are bit exaggerated - nowhere 19euros for a portion of spaghetti with bottarga...

We had a delicious meal here . Spaghetti con vongole, grilled sea bass and baked turbot with potatoes . Waiter recommended a lovely wine at half the price of the one we were looking at . Desert was blackberries with cognac and orange essence and vanilla ice cream - wow .
The quality of the fish deserves five stars but the dishes are simple straightforward preparations . We will definitely go back on our next visit to Porto Ercole .

I am always disapointed why in attractive places in Italy, they don't try to make a bit of an extra effort: In this case, the staff was available but not cheerfull, the dishes were ok/good but boring. Prices not exactly cheap... So whats the reason to go there again?
I suggest the management to think about how to give the clients the feel they are important and they care for them. Try to surprise us with unusual / unique experiences.

Il Gambero Rosso has been a classic along the harbour of Porto Ercole fir come here for a number of years now. And its quality has remained high since then. Try porchetta di tonno, a strong flavoured tuna appetizer. And then indulge yourself into the classics of tuscan seafood cuisine by hearing what the fresh fish of the day is. If possible, leave a space for their homemade desserts. I often visit the area in thr summet and this restaurant became my personal favourite in Porto Ercole lately. Enjoy it!
