Without considering the very high prices which are partially justified by the remote location I’d say that this can’t be the standard of a seemingly highly rated restaurant. The food was very poor all around and we tried many dishes. Very disappointed. Well over 50...More

The dinner at Hycesia was very pleasant. The food was very good, and the restaurant allowed us to bring our wine. I loved the spaghettone with pistachio and gamberi. Very nice setting, and the music is good.

Initially service was good then declined to poor. Food was average, fish undercooked in parts, then 20 minute wait for the bill. Could have walked out and would have not been missed. Unfortunately not value for money, really disappointed.

By far the best restaurant in the Aeolian Islands . Great food & great service makes it a "must visit" spot in Panarea.

Good wine list, elegant and knowledgeable owner. The food was also the best we had during a week long trip on the island where we tried all of the usual suspects.

We had stopped in to look at the menu and to make a reservation with Andrea (one of the owners) earlier in the day. She is so charming and knowledgeable that we looked forward to seeing her later that evening. The wine list was like...More

Amazing restaurant in Panarea, with a lovely couple running the place. We had dinner twice there, and the host Andrea, along with her husband who is the chef, make you feel really appreciated. The food was sophisticated and exquisite, with dishes added daily to the...More
