“A gem of a place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Stayed at the hotel admiral - again ! , had not been at the Wonderful Sea for two years and the owner Carmen recognised us and with her cheery smile she greeted us and we sat and chatted and enjoyed a nice Cold Peroni - £4.50 euros.
May I suggest that this bar is worth a visit to sit and admire Marina Grande and take in the atmosphere.
You meet tourists and locals and it it very easy to chat and have a pleasant drink.
If you was a tasty snack they do amazing basic pizza's for £3.00 euros (incl 330ml Peroni).

We didn't try the food here but the beer, wine and welcome were all excellent. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants relaxed surroundings from which to watch the world go by.

“John McConnell Belfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Excellent little bar. Carmen, her husband, daughter Anna and son Flavio are the most pleasant people you could meet who provide excellent service and value for money. Have been in Sorrento over the last 4 years and I always go to The Wonderful Sea. Brilliant position beside the beach and they serve beautiful, cold Nastro Azurro and Peroni as well as food. A very relaxing place to sit and admire the sea, Naples and Vesuvius on the other side of the bay. Don't be put off by the plastic chairs and tables. It's the service and the people that count and you won't get better in Marina Grande or indeed in Sorrento itself.
