“Fantastic Dining experience”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Amazing restaurant. From beautiful starer, very tasty and subtle main, great desert modern interior to superbly attentive service (waitress was very kind and translated all the menu without even asking, describing the dishes to perfection and even giving great recommendations). House made Limoncello not to be missed!

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

This place was recommended to us by the Duchess of Palma. It was a little hard to find but worth the effort. I started with an appetizer of black bread and bacala with a clementine mustardo. Next course was housemade ravioli with burrito and lemon in an almond sauce. Unbelievably good! I asked for and got a cheese plate to finish -- served with Italian honey. We shared a bottle of Etna Blanca wine which was delicious. Service was professional. Presentation lovely. Noise level low. Altogether a great experience.

“Impressed”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

We went here after a recommendation and were not disappointed. We did check out the restaurant the night before and found the interior very nicely done. Modern with ancient arches. We were advised about special starters which was excellent, just fresh crustacean mussels, raw shrimp, sea urchin, etc. excellent pasta and as main dish again very fresh fish, prepared with much care and well presented. This is probably a restaurant that should be considered upscale. We were pleasantly surprised not to see any other tourists. Can definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Gadir surprises. Simple masterworks?”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

In palermo city, you can find a lot of restaurants of quality. Gadir is not only one of them. It has something special, very difficult to define. A mixture of several cooking skills combined with a touch of innovation gives to the dishes, even the simplest ones a special savor. The discussions with Le Chef on the menu allowed us to choose dishes that were simple but perfectly made. If the chef says "it is a fish like this or that" you discover in your plate the taste of this fish, without the usual superfectatory-exotic-unuseful-disgressive-fallacious-additional ingredients that are so commmonly used to distract your attention from taste of what you are eating. No? How many fish-dishes did you eat recently that were NON-fish at all but really strange things with relations with many flavores except fish ? With Gadir, be sure that what you will eat is targeted in one direction "sans chichis, sans flonflons " as we say in french. Simple masterworks ?

“An Oasis”
Reviewed 12 October 2012

Ristorante Gadir is an oasis in a rather squalid area of Palermo. Modern chic decor, courteous service and interesting menu with specialities from Pantelleria. Make sure you try the cassata for dessert.
