Feeling like a fool! I ordered a grilled swordfish for 17 euro but instead the waiter recommended "a local fish". Unfortunayely, I trusted the waiter and never asked how much it was. When I got the check I got a minor chock. It was 42...More

Nestled in the bay of Naxos to the sea and with a splendid view of Taormina for over forty years, the restaurant is managed with care and attention to detail. A food product of a modern interpretation of traditional Sicilian dishes and a wide variety of fish and shellfish along with a large supply of wines are the characteristics that distinguish it.
