A good restaurant, somewhat expensive. The scenery very nice. The scenery reminds me that of Remetzo Cafe in Poros/Cefalonia/Greece though I cannot find now any suitable drone picture to attach. It' s a plain cafe from outside, truly built within the rock inside, with a magical direct sea view!!!

Interesting place to see, but more special the town, special little town which deserve a visit. Food in the restaurant from 0 to 10 = 5 Service 0 to 10 = 7 The female give some attention, the men = zero Do not deserve to eat (VERY expensive for the food, they just count on the special surrounding place.

You descend down the stairs to this candlelit cavern to begin your evening. It is a magical place! We all enjoyed our meals of a selection of breads, steak and fish entrees, salads, dessert & wine. The food quality was good but the cave dining room was a memory maker!

Having read the recent reviews only a couple of hours before attending, we were a little anxious to say the least about our reservation that we made way back in January that was intended to finish off our two week honeymoon in Italy. We arrived at 7:20 on Saturday with the restaurant opening at half past. About 50 people were...

You are coming here for interior, sea, and view. Don't come for a food, gonna be dissatisfied and disappointed. Premise shall invest in Chef immediately... Quality of starters is good, but what comes after - not worth it at all, unfortunately. Paid almost 250 euros for couple, but certainly paid for the view, not a food.

We drove literally across Italy to eat dinner at this restaurant. The venue is interesting: it is a platform over the sea within a natural cave. The cave is accessible from the sea and at lunch numerous boats drove in under the restaurant and enjoyed swimming beneath us. Not quite as romantic as their site photos suggest. The food was...

Food prices are ridiculously high, attitude of staff disgusting. You can not enter the restaurant unless you are dining, a previous entry stated you could just have a coffee however this option would appear to no longer be an option
