“Best seafood of our trip”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

We found this little gem by accident and ended up dining here several times. The fresh seafood was wonderful and the service was top notch. They really treated us like family. The family wine and and dessert drinks were honestly to die for! You must check out this restaurant if you are in the area!

“Good food, perfectly situated in a fishing cove”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

The food and location was really lovely and had that rustic charm to it.Each table was lit with a little ceramic oil lantern. The only thing I would fault was the service. The young woman serving us really did not want to be there and it seemed it was a real chore for her. They need to ensure all their staff are friendly who make their diners feel welcome. The young man waiting the tables was not so bad.

“Mamma can cook Italian”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The best carbonara in Italia! That is how this review has to start. The Bar Mare Petit Restaurant is probably one of the hardest little restaurants to get to - BUT the MOST WORTH the trip. The marina area is down at the bottom, really at sea level, of a steep gully from the bay. You either walk down a traditional winding stone stairway around the cliff face or use the main road by scooter or vehicle (to the marina). Really lucky patrons just come in by boat, as there are wonderful grottos right next to the bay. To understand how beautifully isolated this marina area is from the upper road etc, check out the images on TripAdvisor for Bar Mare Petit Restaurant.
The working fishermen use this area, there is SCUBA diving and boat tours also. The seafood in Bar Mare Petit Restaurant comes from the local fishermen and we could taste it. With salt water smell in the air and fresh seafood on your plate, you could not get a much better atmosphere.
The mussels were excellent, the seafood plates overflowing with a terrific variety of very tasty fishy things. The home-made pastas would have been worth the hundred's of steps we walked up and down. Thank you Trip Advisor contributors for your previous suggestions to get down to the Bar Mare Petit Restaurant.
The wonderful service, with accompanying humour, was most welcome. (later the owners driving by, recognized us walking on the street and waved) . Visit more than just for dinner because the coffee and pastries during the day are tasty too.

“Sea food by the seaside served by super staff”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Great little place in a superb location, food wasn't bad either.Had a meal and drink late one evening. nice watching the fishermen rowing their boats onto the beach. The walk up the path to Priana was a bit of a struggle.
