“Fabulous view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Very good food, pricey but the view makes up for it. Great combination between traditional flavours and modern reinterpretation of Apulian cuisine. Perfect to impress.

“Fantastic View and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We stumbled in here for a late lunch as it was the first restaurant we came across. We were only looking for a bowl of pasta but were so pleased with what we found. We shared the chef's choice of starters - fabulous cod tempura and stunning prawns. We then had pasta followed by dessert. All courses were excellent as was the service.

The restaurant is a lovely eclectic room with the most amazing view out across to the coast. The bill was definitely higher than in other restaurants in Puglia but the quality is very high and the surroundings and view are so good.

Highly recommended.

“A lunch with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Having pushed my 2 year old daughter up a near vertical hill in her pram to get to this restaurant it was more that worth the effort. The waiter I believe his name was stephano spoke great English which meant that I could relax and enjoy the wonderful food, ambiance and view without having to rehearse my pretty poor Italian. All the seafood dishes I had were absolutely delicious the resteraunt itself is beyond chic and the service attentive and welcoming. Had a wonderful lunch and cold not recommend this resteraunt enough.

“Nice views, good food, but expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Nicely decorated "classy" restaurant. Food was good but portions rather small and genarally much more expensive than we experienced anywhere else on our 2 week tour of Apulia. I guess you pay extra for the wonderful panoramic view of the white city of Ostuni and the sea in the distance. Service was a little slow also.

“Great food and amazing views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Set on the edge of the historic "White City", this restaurant is a delight. The food was delicious - particularly the fish and the service was attentive. We also were pleased (& a little relieved!) to find that the waiter spoke extremely good English!
With its beautiful panoramic view adding to the experience we will definitely be visiting again.
