Loved the place - amazing antipasti! so much lovely food and then gorgeous pasta and dessert. great service, the only bad thing is that we tried to eat there second night running and the terrace was full - booking is advisable!

We ate at Il Celliere on a recent trip to Monopoli. The location is beautiful in a picturesque square in the old town. The service was excellent, the staff very attentive and helpful. Most importantly, the food was wonderful, with ample choices on the menu. Antipasti was great, main courses were wonderful, again table service efficient and helpful. The dessert was fantastic, although I am not a big dessert fanatic - my guests were very impressed. I think Il Celliere has everything and price quality it is good value for money. Will definitely be back.

Now called Ristorante Palmiere, this beautiful restaurant sits on the edge of Piazza Palmieri in old town Monopoli. The chef is new, but the tradition of having the best seafood in Monopoli continues (we've been coming here to visit family for a dozen years). Salmon crudo with strawberry sauce, tuna mousse, swordfish crudo with red peppers, marinated mussels were just a few of the dozen or so small plates in the antipasto. Trust me, the antipasto here is all you need to order (though we did have a dessert too). Everything was beautifully presented and the service was terrific. The chef (Stefano) greeted us at the end of the night. Absolutely terrific.

When we went, they had recently changed management and name, but that did not detract from our experience. This restaurant served amazing food, with a classy atmosphere which would have been equally suited to a larger city. The antipasti were all faultless, but the special iced fish (I can't remember the name on the list) has to be tried (and everyone else in the restaurant had one on their table). It is basically a platter of raw fish on ice, and the gamberi rossi and the oysters stood out from the rest. At around €10, this kind of quality is unparalleled, and really made our final night enjoyable. The staff are friendly and helpful, the interior is modern and clean, the food is delicious and made out of amazing ingredients. Highly recommend!
