1st time we went was at lunchtime after visiting the Valley of the Temples and though only a few people there we were well looked after. I should point out that it really is at the end of a dusty private side road as some reviewers have pointed out. No pizza at lunchtime but the seafood pasta was good and... More

The restaurant was full of tourists but actualy the food came very fast! The pizza was good, not excelent, and the meat with chips was very good! When you go make a reservation for a table outside where you can see the temples!

Not sure what this place is like during the day - it may get too crowded and the service may not be as good as a result, as some have stated - I can't say as we didn't have lunch here. We came here for an evening meal and were not disappointed. First off, to get here you really do... More

You can have a pleasant dining here only if you get a place in the balcony and the restaurant is not full. In other cases it will be a never ending suffer, staff busy and running along the rooms, high noise and long waiting time for your food. Horrible!

Not at all clear why this restaurant is recommended so highly. The location is good, but the food I had was average at best - a meagre and tasteless piece of veal accompanied by cold, stale french fries and stale bread. Service was unenthusiastic until it came time to pay, when the prospect of a tip presumably came to mind.... More

We went here as part of our tour. Beautiful food, certainly a nice one not to miss. Of course we had 3 courses which included pasta but all beautifully served individually to us.

This is not the easiest place to find but it's worth persevering, if only for the view from the terrace. It is just off the roundabout at the eastern end of the Valley of the Temples. My wife and I only had a pizza so can't comment on the rest of the food, but the pizza was excellent. We sat... More

This was recommended to us for the food and the view. The food was average -- nothing memorable -- and the view was far enough away that the lit temples didn't really stand out. We were both surprised that this restaurant receives such glowing reviews; nothing was bad, but nothing was all that good, either.

Having spent most of the day walking through the Valley of the Temples it was a joyous experience to sit in this restaurant watching the sun go down over the temples prior to their being illuminated at night. The view was more than matched by the food - after the starter of local products we had pizza and grilled lamb... More

Food was excellent. Service, was slow. Service acted like they weren't interested in you being there. Had to ask for water and other things we wanted. Waiter was unfriendly. For a true dinning experience go to Kalòs Ristorante in Agrigento.
