Went back for Lunch two days later and was pleasantly surprised to find out the view is even more beautiful during the day. The food was great the second time round as well and... More

We have extensive history eating at this restaurant and I had always wished that they would update things... little did I know that when they did it also meant that they would do away with their fantastic trattoria style menu. They've gone to a traditional order what you want menu with no option of antipasti, primi, secondo, and dolce at... More

La Cambusa Ristorante has a great location - right by the sea and marina. We waited more than an hour and a half for the food! We complained several times to the waitress who was as frustrated as us. After an hour and a half of wait, we told them we are leaving. The manager came and asked us to... More

GREAT location; and GOOD food; but TERRIBLE service. The location here was perfect, right on the beach with a view of Taormina and Castelmola. However, while the food was good, the service was absolutely terrible. Totally agree with previous reviews that mention there are not enough staff to service what is quite a large restaurant. Nothing was synchronised. It took... More

La Cambusa is located on the beach near the harbour, a very nice spot with a beautiful view on the town and Toarmina. The quality of the food is good and a nice menu. A very large wine menu, but the staff could not advise on a wine to accompany our dishes. The restaurant is large and too little staff... More

You enter the restaurant by stairs from the promenade. The restaurant is very modern and clean and the view if you sit outside is dreamy and calming. The food was high end dining and faultless. I had stuffed sardines and my partner had swordfish rolls, daughter had bolognese all tasted fab and looked as pretty as a picture. Staff were... More

We went to La Cambusa Ristorante on the recommendation of a friend's Airbnb host in Giardini Naxos. We are very happy we went with the recommendation. It is in a great spot next to the water where you get great views looking back to Taormina and Giardini Naxos. The food was really excellent, a strong emphasis on seafood which was... More

The waiters were pushing the most expensive dishes, but all we wanted were pizzas and when they discovered we weren't going to spend a fortune on food and wine, they lost interest. Having said this, the pizzas were good, the decor and view were stunning, so pity about their attitude.
