An uncontrived little place which offers a variety of local fish dishes. Only order from the full meal menu IF you have a huge appetite, otherwise, order dishes a la carte. The grilled calamari and red prawns are excellent as is the caponata. The fried fish is light as a feather. All and all an interesting dinner experience if you... More

What an excellent restaurant with the most delicious antipasti as part of the set menus that consisted of 7 different dishes! We had octopus salad and a cold aubergine dish as well as anchovies ,sardines, deep fried shrimps and tiny fish, each dish more delicious than the last. Accompanied by complimentary bruschetta and olives and good wine by the glass.... More

Marinella di Selinunte has not many attractive restaurants, but please visit Fresco Mare and you will be not disappointed. It is a real little gem. Situated in a renovated railway station it serves a wide range of delicious fresh fish menus. The little restaurant breathes such a nice atmosphere that one would like to be there a bit longer after... More

The set menu is absolutely fantastic, though it alone would be enough for the two of us. We left utterly happy, definite recommendation!

I'm not sure but it seems to be closed. Although we went there on Sunday afternoon the place appeared to be in some kind of a renovation. You can give it a try anyway as it won't be a time-consuming detour since the restaurant is located some 300 feet from the roundabout exit to the archeological site but it really... More

Dear Gentlemen Ron S., as well noticed the restaurant is under renovation. Probably some vs friend I had advised the local ns for positive experiences in the past.

Don't be put off by the location or the building (this restaurant is in Selinunte's old railway station) The fish is bought daily from local boats and grilled on a wood fired barbecue. The service was a tad slow and chaotic on our visit, but it didn't matter. The grilled sardines were delicious. If you're ordering a whole grilled fish,... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the proprietor of our B&B for the night and we walked there in the dark, looking for a place that could possibly be a great restaurant. We soon came to an open area that had probably been a railway line which had been decommissioned and was now a car park. In the middle was... More
