I really wish I’d checked Tripadvisor before going anywhere near this restaurant. On leaving we noticed a Tripadvisor logo with a line through it i.e. No Tripadvisor. Pity we hadn’t seen it on arrival as that would have warned us what was in store. When we looked at the menu board outside the restaurant there were a lot of delicious-sounding... More

A restaurant that does not justify classification Michelin (stars awarded) by the quality of services and products offered; all other restaurants and terraces Giardini Naxos exceeding this restaurant by waiters hospitality, product quality and prices I can not forget the fish served unclean and unwashed or bill overvalued, unacceptable aspects that have ruined the celebrating of my birthday on the...

Let me start off with the food as cannot say it was not good. We ordered a whole lobster which was quite delicious however even though we agreed on the price beforehand, I believe we were swindled for this as well. I immediately knew something was not right. The waiter offered us a different wine than the one ordered &... More

Once again we had fallen for Michelin reccommendation (seriously I'm starting to doubt their expertise in terms food) in a single trip as the other highly rated restaurants were either closed or full and we didn't look this one on Tripadvisor (though their NoTripadvisor sign-fake reviews should have sent us on our way). The service was quite poor as we... More

Every review that I've read from tourists had the exact same experience. Forced to look at the fish of the day and lobster etc. Given food we didn't ask for.. Worst side salad ever for 6 euro each. Horrible man that intimidates you and makes you believe that it is the language barrier when he does it to every tourist... More

My boyfriend and I like a lot of the other people who have visited this restaurant were pressurised to order from the fresh fish caught that day instead of the fish we initially asked for and we also got totally ripped off. The large waiter who we later found out was the owner was the most rude, aggressive, ignorant man... More

The catch of the day- a large seabass fish costs 60€ !!! The owner got mad because we didn't want it. Finally we ordered the snappers... they cleaned it so bad that there was nothing left to eat. Finally we paid more than 100€ for nothing really

We were pressured to order lobster and eventually ordered one starter of a lobster salad as well as mains off the menu. They brought us two lobster salads which we accepted and ate thinking it was a communication error due to language barrier. Only when we got the bill did we realise we had been hustled ~ the most ridiculously... More

The restaurant looks good and there is an inviting display of fish and lobster. Ok so far. Charming large waiter gave us a sea front table, although not hard as there were very few dinners other than a large table occupied by some family. The waiter encouraged us to order lobster which I declined as main course. I did order... More

Nestled in the bay of Naxos to the sea and with a splendid view of Taormina for over forty years, the restaurant is managed with care and attention to detail. A food product of a modern interpretation of traditional Sicilian dishes and a wide variety of fish and shellfish along with a large supply of wines are the characteristics that distinguish it.
