Nice place to have a dinner and listening live music. Often here are private parties. Summer terrace on a grass looks nice. Waiters are very pleasant and helpful.
High and kitchen and good vines. Absolutely recommend for delicious evening.

Thank Bogdan D

It is definitely worth making the effort to find this restaurant; it is not cheap but if you want a memorable meal served with panache and charm then this is it.
We almost succeeded in working our way through the taster menu (fish dishes); we had to bail out at the dessert stage! The most stunning starter was a presentation of carpaccio plus other fishy delights on a large slate plate with miniature oil and vinegar containers so you could dress your own. Visually and taste wise it was wonderful.

This was the worst event I have ever attended. The menu for capodanno (Euro 100,-) listed six or seven antipasti, which were not served. They must have been stored somewhere. We could not even see any of theses antipasti, all the more not eat.
The whole team was guideless and even the pasta and the main course were served cold within a cold tent where people were sitting in their coats and hats - if they had not left before dinner started.
What has got into Mister Giunta to put hundreds of festively dressed people in a tent which they were unable to heat beyond 12 degrees? He himself left for a cruise ship.
A disaster!!!
I am really sorry that tripadvisor asks for a minimum of one point, I would have liked to give not even one.

Dear Customer,
the facility where your table was placed on New Year's Eve night at Castello a Mare restaurant was designed and assembled by one of the best companies in Sicily, to shelter from the cold and to give our guests the opportunity to enjoy an openair dinner while remaining well repaired. The structure was provided with sufficient and adequate heating for the number of people expected, but that evening the outside temperature was so low that our measures proved insufficient. Unfortunately it is not easy to solve this kind of problems in such occasions! our staff had to improvise in some way shifts and adjustments in the course of the evening, giving priority to this issue rather than the obsessive service attention that usually characterizes our restaurant along with the quality of the dishes.
It was an error of judgment caused by an unexpected and decidedly unusual cold in Palermo.
Further we reiterate our regret for the inconvenience caused to you and we will be pleased to make you change your opinion reserving a welcome surprise on the occasion of your next visit to Castello a Mare restaurant.
Best regards and wishes for a peaceful new year.

The worst thing has been plastic gazebo to accommodate customers on a sunny midday; not exactly a good view and a good smell. having say this food has been delicious, waiters very kind; but such a shame for shoddy wine. Eating in front of "a Cala" bay waterfront has no price: better whether with a wine adequate to location.
Anyway A place to which come back.

Dear Customer, thank you for your appreciation! Our winter garden is a way to give you the opportunity to enjoy the panorama of the Cala in cold winter days...Please come again if you can during spring or summer, just to enjoy the pleasure of dining or having lunch on the grass of our wonderful lawn...that would be unforgettable for sure!
We are very sorry that you didn't appreciate our wine selection. Next time, please, tell our staff that your choice has not revealed so good to you, and they will be ready to suggest something different and in line to your tastes.
Thank you again and see you soon at Castello a Mare restaurant.
