Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Reservations
Description: A charming place, a restaurant with all the features to become "historical", since it stands where the first stones of Neapolis were placed in the far Middle Ages, today Polignano a Mare. Antiche Mura Restaurant is like the "Rotonde", the enchanting restaurant of the monumental Hotel Negresco in Nice, the place preferred by the most renowned people. Our idea is to realize an attractive corner of the Apulian cuisine, combining simplicity and refinement of choice. What strikes, apart from our good cuisine, is the refinement of our restaurant and the attention paid to every single detail. Finally, natural politeness and professionality will make the atmosphere pleasant and harmonious, for an unforgettable moment to spend together with other people.

“best restaurant we experienced in Puglia”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

That was an incredible surprise! We had the starters for 2 and it was more than enough! Everything was delicious, especially the sardines and the burrata cheese. The mussels were a little too filling. We then had a delicious lobster with pasta and my husband had grilled fish. The waiters were extremely nice and professional. Desserts are also very good, but it's really the fish that blow our minds! Best experience in Puglia!

“Charming”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The owner was inviting and gracious. Menu varied, with an extensive fish selection. As a matter of fact, the owner brought us to the fish display and explained each choice to us.
Many locals eating there. The interior was well designed, warm ambiance.

“One of the most memorable meals of our trip!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Both the service and the food were excellent, the decoration and ambience of the restaurant was lovely. The vegetarian starter was amazing, and I chose a fish which was baked with olives - excellent.

“Didn´t honour reservation”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

As it was my husband´s birthday and we had read excellent reviews on TA about this restaurant, we called by on the Sunday to reserve a table for the Tuesday night. The person who took our reservation wasn´t particularly helpful or friendly but noted that we wanted to book for 8.30pm on the Tuesday evening and that we wanted a table inside. We were horrified when we arrived, expecting to enjoy a good meal, only to find that the restaurant was closed!!! Surely the unhelpful waiter who took our reservation and who spoke English could have told us that they would not be open. Their loss however as we had an excellent meal at nearby Osteria dei Mullini.

Hi,
I think you have booked another restaurant
because I do not remember your phone call.
I am very sorry for your disappointment,
but I am very happy that you had a good meal in the restaurant of my friend, Osteria dei Mulini.
