The restaurant has wide choice of fresh local fish and seafood all depends on daily catch. We had one starter plate and two large second dishes - it was more than enough. Local wine is also nice.

We come here every year as it is a safe bet if you like seafood. There is a service at 8pm and one at 10pm, so don't come earlier. The terrace has a nice view over the sea (next to a heavily used road) while the inside is definitely not our taste (too cold/bright lights). Sea food is fresh and... More

We went there twice, great ambiance, great service. You can have better quality and tasty food in the area but if you want to dine in a shiny location, then this is the venue.

Dear Terry, reading the history of your reviews , and noting the places where you usually eat ( fast food , cheeseburger, sandwiches, beer, cocacola), I think you don't have the culture to judge the food quality. I spent two years in England, and I perfecltly know English food. I think we have to learningt English language, but you have... More

Cosimino is there , Iguess for few decades, it offers tables outside ( unfortunately too close to a street quite trafficated during weekends ) and a huge room inside, where I advice you when booking to ask for tables by the window, There are two main things here, the fish and the service and both , also in this occasion...

Went there with my boyfriend on the 12th april. The restaurant was empty, thought it would be great as service would be the top of the top... well I won't complain about the appetizer, it was on the average ! We asked for a salt-crusted sea bass for two persons as second dish. The waiter quite young, bright guy did... More

This is definitely my favourite restaurant in Porto Cesareo, and I always visit when I go back home. The food is great, fish is always very fresh and all the ingredients are of top quality. Service is perfect. Highly recommended!
