We went to this nice little restaurant yesterday for dinner, due to the many positive feedbacks here on tripadvisor. We got a table with a great seaview. The ambance is rather simple and the restaurant is a bit outside the city center of Giardini Naxos....More

We came 11 people at 9pm and it was no problem at all. The staff was kind, and the food was tasty and delicious. Nice location right next to the ocean!

Stayed in Giardini Naxos from 18th to 28th June and ate dinner here at least three times. Didn't rate the steak too much but the grilled prawns could represent Sicily at the Olympics and my top favourite was the Fish and Sea Food (photo added)....More

We found this restaurant on our first night. The main seating area is across the road from the restaurant itself and gives a fantastic view of the sea. The prices were very reasonable and the food quality was good. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Got to spend an evening with my partner in this lovely restaurant facing the sea. The food is always delicious, the staff is caring and friendly and the location in spot on! Couldn't ask for more from a romantic evening! definitely worth it!

Dined here 3 times in 7 days. Always highly enjoyable. The staff were brilliant. When I expressed satisfaction in one of the sauces, the chef insisted on visiting our table with different samples! Nice touch. This restaurant was a great little find for us.

There are many restaurants with amazing Siciliano cuisine on this island, but when you add in a beautiful atmosphere, an eloquent and kind staff PLUS very affordable prices, this place right on the water is a true find!
