“Fish, fish, fish”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

This is a very nice seafood restaurant in a central location of Porto Cesareo. There is inside and outside seating available. We have been to this place several times during our holidays in September. There was always a very fresh selection of seafood and fish available to chose from. They offer a variety of raw seafood/fsih dishes as starters which we loved. Anyone who likes raw fish and only knows sushi, should try to the italian version. Our child loved the pasta with fish and we usually went for the catch of the day in saltcrust. The waiters were very helpful also with our little one and there was a highchair available for her.
In the high season this place is packed, so a reservation is highly recommended. It can be difficult to find a parking, but that is true for all the restaurants in porto cesareo when the town is packed with tourists.

It is a high quality restaurant. You pay 35Euros/pp for a full meal.
Take the classic "linguine frutti di mare". Excellent!!!.
Ask to see and chose the fish they will cook for you.

“Great seafood and amazing wild seabass”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

Nice restaurant on the port of Porto Cesareo, nice view over the fisher boats (not the beach with people). Great raw seafood, delicious octopus salad, and amazing seabass in salt. They even found soy milk to do a macchiato milk free.
count 35-40€/pers.
