There are probably not many of us left who remember and mourn the passing of Via Romana. But the times have changed. Formal and elegant restaurants are out, and casual but trendy ones are in. The same owners have survived and thrived in this new location on the seafront. You couldn't get any closer to the ocean unless you were... More

Lunched in the sun with magnificent views west up to the Esterel. Had not reserved but managed to get the last table outside. The cod on a fine potato puree with spinach topping was the most delicate I've ever tasted. Really melt in the mouth stuff which is very unusual for cod. My wife had the hand made ravioli with...

We really loved the food here and the atmosphere is very nice as well. The prices were not too bad either for a popular place, and the portions were generous. My favorite: the octopus. Service was not very active, always felt like you really had to make a lot of effort to get their attention.

We went to Amarea part way through our holiday and had such a wonderful meal that we went back for our last meal in Bordighera. The food was awesome on both occasions and we would go back in a heartbeat the next time we are in Bordighera.

We had a wonderful dinner here, everything was absolutely spotless. Starting from the service, kind and knowledgeable. The wine guy found the best white to match with our order of fish. We tried a bit if everything as we were a party of five. Nothing was less than perfect. The Calamari with buffalo mozzarella and the octopus, as starters, were... More

The service is wonderful here. The food is awesome. I had the cod which was over a potato with spinach, it was fantastic! My boyfriend had the frito misto which was also excellent. All plates beautifully presented and appealing. The desert a work of art! Highly recommended!
