Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Frequented many of Tropea’s restaurants over the last ten years and although the fresh seafood cannot be bettered the menus are all very similar. It was therefore a joy to try this restaurant, little but significant changes on how the food is prepared make this...restaurant stand out.More

This was such a great family friendly beach. We were able to get snacks, water and a meal after spending a few hours in the sun! We can’t wait to come back next year!

A typical seaside restaurant in every seaside tourism city in every country you travel. The restaurant is nice with a nice young wait staff. A truly diverse menu based mainly on fish and seafood and a variety of Italian pasta dishes. The service was agile...and professional and the food "excellent". For dessert, a selection of Italian desserts that were also, like the whole meal, was excellent. Highly recommended.More

In the evening this restaurant caters to people looking for fine dining with great food and excellent wines. A quiet spot with a wonderful menu of seafood and dishes to please all. Excellent service and the seaside ambiance. Our finest dinner in Tropea.

We ate at the Lido Tropical 3 times (1 x dinner, 2 x lunches) during our week in Tropea and can highly recommend it. The food was simply delicious and is what made us keep coming back... Marije, Fran, and their friendly staff make a...real pleasure to both eat here and enjoy the sun and swimming/snorklelling at their beach. Tip: if you are looking for place to stay, Marije has a wonderful place B&B Maestrale that made our week in Tropea perfect.More

Really nice restaurant. Nice atmosphere in the evening, fairly busy with lots of tables reserved but still some free for walk ins. Nice to come when they open at around 7:30pm and see the sunset over the sea. Food was very good. We ordered two...pastas and the swordfish. Prawn and seafood pastas were both amazing but very fishy, so not good for someone not 100% about fish! Swordfish was lovely and tender and tasty. Wine was nice. Servers very attentive and friendly. Restaurant is on the pricey side, but that's what you'd expect with the location on the beachfront, the level of service and the quality of the food. We had two pastas, a secondi, 1/2 litre wine and water for €53. Would recommend if you like seafood! Couldn't comment on the non-seafood options.More

Enjoyed my lunch here. I might have had the best grilled swordfish of my life right here. Also had a Caprese salad. Everything was fresh and delicious!

The food here was simply amazing. The prawn with licorice sauce was a mix of crunchy and sweet. I don’t even like licorice but I adored the sauce. The prawns were so fresh and tender that this made for a mouth watering dish. My had...the red onion pasta and my husband had the carbonara. The pasta was so homemade and perfectly cooked. Both the sauces were perfection. We had pistachio tiramisu which was very good but i think we could have left there without dessert and have been very happy. I had lovely house white too!More

I visited this lido for the third consecutive year. This year we decided to go for dinner, as for the last two years we enjoyed lunch here. All I can say is that this restaurant never lets you down. There is an array of dishes...to choose from and everything is fresh. My favourite remains the pasta with the red onions of Tropea. So delicious....More
