The 'dorado' fish served must have been a maximise of 180 grams between us. The waiter had told us we were getting about 400 each. Hacing shown is the fish they werencooking for us, was hard to find the cooked fish among the potatoe dish. Very few veggies which is normal for Italy. Waiter was also avoiding to answer our...

Easy walk from local hotels, and waterfront. Service, food and wine were great! We had mussels pomodoro (an entree) for an appetizer, than split a shrimp pasta entree (we snacked all day throughout SM). The waiter was kind enough to split our entree on two plates, without us requesting. Very thoughtful. Service was excellent. We reserved the night before to... More

We have been stopping by Santa Margherita in August for many years. It is on our route by sea. We always look forward to dinner at L'Altro Eden while visiting. It is truly a magnificent restaurant. The food, the setting and the elegant owner/ chef, make it one of the best restaurant experiences in the Mediterranean. Worth a trip !!!

This is my second review of altro eden and it was delightful. We had the antopasto fritto di mare and the a orato alla liguriana. Both top notch. The atmosphere is great and the crowd mostly sophisticated italianita. So just enjoy people watching and this very, very fine cuisine!

Superb meal. We ordered mixed sea food antipasto and fresh swordfish ending with strawberries and gelato accompanied by a local wine. The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. We enjoyed the beautiful view for two hours + without a concern in the world. Highly recommend.

Great location on the port overlooking the boats and harbor. The food and service were very good, fresh fish was excellent and the creative antipasti including stuffed mussels was outstanding. We had a great dinner at this restaurant.

The food is good but the service and welcome is very poor unless you are a local or a well heeled Italian.Tourists however respectable are wasting their money.

L'altro Eden is one of the best restaurants to be found in the city! Guide Michelin never fails. In case you are not an Italian, I suggest to ask fot the catch of the day or just follow the suggestion of the waiter. Why? Because this is a restaurant typically frequented by upscale italians and that's the way they order... More
