We ate here with some friends of our who live in Ischia. We took a short boat ride over and arrived at a beautiful restaurant that overlooked the water. The exterior seating was breathtaking and very romantic. The food was the best we had ever had and cooked to perfection. The staff was kind and helpful and even let my son hold one of the lobsters in the tank. We couldn't have asked for a more prefect night.

We ate here last year on our wedding anniversary - it was recommended by our hotel, as their restaurant (2 star Michelin) was closed that evening. Boy, what a fiasco! It was a nuisance to get to (supposedly that was part of the "romance") and, on arriving, I could not have been more disappointed. Although the restaurant was pretty much empty when we arrived and, although they knew it was our anniversary, they sat us near the door, at a table immediately next to the only other couple in the room - as if we were a table of four, not two couples). There was no view to speak of - only the stairs to the restaurant. The chairs were uncomfortable and the table wobbled, so wine/water went everywhere. Eventually, we caught the waiter's attention and asked to sit at the next table over - it was even more unstable. The service was extremely bad - very slow, and inattentive - the food was unremarkable and viciously overpriced. We left after the main course - several hundred euro poorer but much, much, wiser.

The only good to come from the experience was discovering the beautiful terrace bar at the Miramare Hotel, where we waited until the water taxi was ready to take us to the Il Giardino Eden at the start of the evening and where we fled, for sanctuary and a much-needed nightcap, after a truly terrible dinner. Thank you, Hotel Miramare, for rescuing our evening - we'll be back to see you very soon!

Giardini Eden is a little paradise, you'll find a good restaurant......tables with amazing view on aragonese castle and probably the best way to spend a great day of sea in Ischia. You can also rent sunbed for your relax..........

Not worth the trip. Very crowded. The only saving grace is the crystal clear waters for swimming.

I had the unique opportunity to dine with my family at Giardino d' Eden and it surpassed my expectations. We arrived by water taxi on a beautiful Sept day and enjoyed a relaxing lunch waterside. The food was spectacular. Traditional Italian food with a contemporary flair. The family run restaurant is very warm. You can't help but relax. Next time I will bring a bathing suit to enjoy the pools. It was a highlight of my trip. I will be back!
