Six of us arrived in Portovenere by boat with about three hours for lunch and strolling before the return trip to the Cinque Terre. Before we even docked, my French son-in-law Fabrice had selected Le Bocche for its location -- as far as possible the center of the town. We sat outside for a fine lunch (I loved watching my 12-year old grandson devour his octopus salad; I had fried calamari) and still had plenty of time to clamber out on the rocks for pictures. Great location; good food; reasonable price.

This lounge bar/restaurant was built on a rocky cliff facing the sea and the nearby islets. We had a light lunch there, sitting outdoors on a sunny weekend in spring. The food was very good, genuine, with an excellent choice of local seafood (we had fried cuttlefish, boiled octopus with potatoes, salted anchovies served with butter, spaghetti with mussels) and cool, delightful Vermentino white wine. The location is wonderful. If the weather is good, you can sit outside, a few meters from the sea. The price was very reasonable. The service was fine. We would definitely return.

The food is average, nice atmosphere but the service is slow and waitresses are incredible unpolite, not willing to work.

We had a light lunch here, sitting outdoors on a beautiful day. The food was OK, the service average. My 'Very Good' rating is based on one thing: the location. When the sun is shining, this is a delightful spot to sit and watch the boasts coming and going. My guess is that the restaurant relies on its location and doesn't feel the need to try too hard.

Romantic spot close to the entry of the port. Lovely breeze on a hot night.
Small select menu but very tasty. All the past dishes were top class.
Professional service and reasonable price.
