The setting is great overlooking the ocean but that is where the good rating ends. A surly waiter who needs a few lessons in customer service, food that was average and in fact we both spent all night and the next day with a gastro which we would suggest was picked up there. The final insult was the unfriendly waiter all but demanding that a tip be added to our card payment. I refuse to tip for poor rude service and below standard food. I can not understand how this place gets any good reviews.

This restaurant in Positano was recommended to us by the owner of a small italian restaurant in Cambridge, MA. His friend, who owns La Cambusa was so excited with his U..S. friend's message that he wouldn't let us order from the menu. What he presented & chose for us was just so fresh, delicious, and perfectly seasoned.It was quite the perfect evening, dining on the open air terrace along the beach--Just magical and we're still raving about the food!!!

Fresh seafood. Perfect for lunch at the beach. Had an awesome salmon tartare and a great mixed fish plate. Yes, it is full of tourists, but Positano as a whole is loaded with tourists, so what do people expect?

I will be brief. Cambusa was recommended by friends who lived here for a month or two every summer for many years. So we went. Cambusa was a let-down.
Calamari was rubbery. Spinaci con burro must have been non-fresh. We sampled other dishes with none to recommend.
However, service was excellent and the view over the beach is great.
