Il Gambero Rosso has been a classic along the harbour of Porto Ercole fir come here for a number of years now. And its quality has remained high since then. Try porchetta di tonno, a strong flavoured tuna appetizer. And then indulge yourself into the classics of tuscan seafood cuisine by hearing what the fresh fish of the day is.... More

We were staying at Il Pelicano but I preferred the food here. The wine was sensibly priced and I really enjoyed my spaghetti vongole and mixed seafood. Well worth a visit and on the through road with a sea view

8 of us ate here, recommended by the hotel we were staying at. Warmly welcomed when we arrived, had booked but off season and not busy. No Italian speakers so a very patient lady and older gentleman (owner?) explained all of the menu to us. Food was great, good quality and service was well paced meaning a relaxing evening. Views...

We ate here several times and found it very good. It was the off season during our visit and the place was not very busy. The terrace has a lovely view across the harbor and the owner and staff are helpful, pleasant and want to please, which they did. Lots of fish dishes. While the food is nothing special it... More

Usually not easy to find a restaurant who would serve you when you arrive after 2pm. We arrived at 330 but they were kind enough to accept us. We had fettuccine with frutti di mare and fritto misto to share. The pasta was home made and absolutely delicious. The fritto misto portion was just perfect to share. With a half... More

We had lunch at this little jewel. The staff was very helpful on deciding on our menu and wine. The fish (penzonia, a type of sea bream) was delicious as was the cozze di marinara and spaghetti alle vongole. The owner and waitstaff were both efficient and helpful and the view overlooking the harbor is very relaxing.

This fish restaurant has a nice terrace overlooking the harbour at Porto Ercole. Nevertheless... the dishes were really average and i absolutely advise NOT to take the tuna as it was below any expectation.
