This was a total find. On the way to Villa Jovis, the former palace of the Emperor Tiberius, in the North East of Capri. It's quite a climb from the Capri main square and we were tired and thirsty. This place is unflashy but has the most exquisite views. They serve salads, sandwiches and drinks plus cocktails. I had a... More

Bar Jovis is a very cool little spot to enjoy a cocktail on your way too or from Villa Jovis. My wife and i stopped in on our way back down the mountain. I had a cold Peroni and she had a limoncello with tonic. Both were super refreshing. I highly recommend stopping in here as Bar Jovis offers some... More

The owner is very rude. Refused to serve one beverage, justifying it by the fact that were two of us sitting at the table. Because of that we had to order 2 beverages. However have to admit that the view is excellent.

The view is fantastic. I don't know if our long walk contributed, but we thought their caprese sandwich was delicious. It was not a complicated sandwich but it was very tasty. They have an excellent drink selection and they also have some Gelato abs assorted desserts. If you are making the trip up then definitely stop in to Bar Jovis.... More

We stopped here for lunch after a visit to the Villa Jovis. As it is high in the hills it has a fantastic view over the bay of Naples. Food was simple but oh so tasty, a fresh tomato salad with oilive oil and basil dressing and crispy bread with a lovely chilled beer. Get there early though, we arrived... More

Had a memorable, simple lunch at this little bar after hiking to the Villa Jovis with a group of 20 other academics. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the simple Caprese sandwich was delicious! Don't miss the Limoncello Prosecco cocktail -- a must sip as you gave over the beautiful view from their patio.

Tucked away down a few flights of stairs was this gem of a restaurant, where I was greeted by (who I assume to be) the owner of the restaurant, ushered to a table and was warmly looked after by the staff. While the meals could be considered slightly expensive, they are definitely worth it. I recommend the swordfish steak.

We were on a walk to Villa Jovis and found this special little bar with one of the best sandwiches we've had in Italy. We had a ham, mozzarella and tomato with fresh baked bread. Excellent!! Also try the gellato, very fresh and perfect for a long walk. The view is spectacular and the staff is so friendly, we would... More

Good snack and easy food from Capri. Wonderfull view and staff.however it is too expensive, as almost all the island, but 3 euro for water, 3coffee and 8 for a sandwich in Italy is defintly too much also if they are good.

We came upon this little place after visiting Villa Jovis. We took the track up the hill after visiting Villa Lysis. It was quite a goat track. I think most visitors use the main walking track past all the lovely houses and gardens. So we were quite hungry and thirsty after all the walking. Great views, great service and just... More
