We recently had the pleasure to stay at the delightful Eremo della Giubiliana near Marina di Ragusa. We ate several times at the elegant restaurant including lunch with a special menu on Easter Sunday. The food was beautifully prepared and served. The chef has a delicate hand and is creative with his selection of flavours and colours. He makes excellent use of produce grown at the eremo (the olive oil is outstanding) and from the area. We thought that the breads, cakes and "dolci" we had here and throughout this beautiful area of Sicily are the best we have had anywhere in Italy. The waiter, Pepe, both attentive and professional is always happy to describe each course to you in detail in either Italian or English. Breakfast was particularly good value with a real spread of pastries, cakes, cereals, hams, cheese, juices and even scrambled eggs, bacon and grilled tomatoes for the Brits!

Given the exceptional quality of the food, the ambience of both the restaurant and the hotel plus the service, prices are reasonable although wine by the glass is not a cost-effective option unless you stick to one! If you are looking for a romantic (tall candle sticks on the table) evening in an elegant setting this is the place for you.

After a late arrival at the hotel we had great room service we decided to eat at the restaurant attached to the hotel on the next evening. We reserved for 7.30, which is obviously too early for the staff. The waiter reminded me of Manuel from Fawlty Towers. Rather than let us peruse the menu he insisted we we have the today's specials. I chose a bottle of wine that I wanted to try. The waiter informed us the wine was not available. Instead of letting us choose something else he just brought another bottle. However, that was after 30 minutes of waiting. We did have excellent bread to keep us going. It is one thing to sit down and wait for your meal, quite another to have no food or drink! This was a portent of the evening ahead. The uplighting by the tables is very distracting and the pianist was quite loud. I am not sure why some venues think this is a good addition. The food took some time and the main course (heavilly recommended) was not worth the wait. That was the last time in our stay we eat dinner in the restaurant.

We had some trouble trying to get to this place due to incorrect directions, so prepare yourself well with a route before hitting the road.
However, our persistence certainly was rewarded that evening. Great food and service in a very nice atmosphere.
It's not cheap but certainly payable considering other restaurants which I've been in Sicily. We spent around 90 euros on a 3 courses dinner and wine in July 2012.
I would certainly come back there.
