“At last. Good food - but expensive!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Serendipity brought us to Cafe Positano. We'd been to check out Da Vincenzo and were put off by the attitude of the man at the door (clearly, he would be doing us a favour!).
At Cafe Positano, got a seat on the lower deck with great views of the beach. Waiter was both friendly and funny (what a difference good staff make). The food we had was excellent BUT €10 for Bruschetta (for example) tells you a lot. Enjoyed the whole experience but would have been more reasonable at 60% of the total price charged.

“Meal with a View”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Those location looking out at the bay @ Positano at sunset was extraordinary. Waiter seated us outside under the heaters, what a view. Food good, lots of seafood, also items for the meat eater. Wine list extensive, house wine reasonable and good. The staff is friendly, like a good joke. The meal price was a little high.

“Excellent view - but a little pricey”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Location is great - breathtaking views.

The food was very good - the clams were the best. Nice house wine. It was expensive, but Positano in general is expensive.

Service was good.

“Delicious but a bit too expensive”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Had lunch there with family. The location and scenery are really great, the food (fish and sea food pasta) are delicious. The only down side was the price, we found it a bit too expensive for what it was.
