“Excellent food!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

The place is really impressive and the food is excellent. The prices are right for the quality - around € 35 per person - 2 dishes (seafood predish + 2nd fish soup + white wine). The best dish in my opinion is the soup made by tomato and seafoods (huge!!) called "Zuppetta del Borgo" - let's try it

“SIMPLY THE BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2012

Visiting Marciana Marina last week on our friends motor yacht, Rosy Days, we had the good fortune to discover Borgo al Cotone Restaurant. Dining here was the high point of our visit - lunch followed by two delightful evenings. The sunsets are truly amazing! Fabulous food, great wines and super service, plus amazing customer care.
I was unaware that I dropped my money clip (€800) in the restaurant. To my surprise and delight the Proprietor cycled to the boat to return the money; such honesty is so very rare in the modern world, and we will always remember it.
We will be back!

“Good food and superior location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012 via mobile

Went there out of season, in an evening when only 3 tables were occupied. Alone.
Just followed the direction by the owner and ate very well close/on the sea.
Good dinner, even though in the category of the "non cheap" ones. I am avoiding the 5th star for a specific reason: I hate places where they charge 3€ "coperto" (i.e. just the sitting and bread) when you order a full meal.

“lovely location, food could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

the thing is that when you go to have dinner in such a lovely place, the closest restaurant I've ever seen to the sea and waves, you really have great expectations...... food was good but not very good!! Maybe they should try to serve something different, new variety of dishes . Anyway, good value for money. staff seems a little stressed.
