our last meal in Lerici and we looked on Trip Advisor and stumbled on Mare Blu Bistrot. We were greeted by a young male who had not been on the job long but very courteous and helpful. both ordered seafood starters but different and they arrived on platters rather than plates. i have never tasted such good seafood even in...

Had dinner and didn't booked it in advance. No problem as it was during the week. Good fish and wine. Only problem no English menu and little english spoken (from the chef, not the waitress). But still a good choice at good prices. Dog friendly

Had a great meal here where we mixed up lots of dishes from tuna to sea bass to mixed seafood grill and it was all great. Good service by Rosa - Thanks ! Lovely wine and great setting. So loved it overall.

We had dinner at Mare Blu and ate the zuppa di fruti di mare. It was a mix of different seafood. Very delicious, fresh and affordable. Desserts didn't seem great so we passed. The chef was nice, but I think there was a big soccer game on that night because he seemed distracted!!

This is probably the best food in Lerici. Amazing fresh seafood - fried and other ways too. It's small, really small. We could only have one shape pasta for our group because the kitchen is too small to cook two pastas at once! So, you have to be adventuresome and flexible to eat here, but if you are, it's a...

I walked in for late lunch with 3 friends to an empty counter with one or two other diners - we thought they might be closing. Had a chat with them and the friendly proprietor and it seemed they were still open for business so we ordered a couple of mixed seafood and the tuna. It was all delicious and... More

This small unnassuming restaurant had the best seafood we ate in Lerici. Seared tuna, crab and shrimp ravioli, tender calamari, the list goes on. The owner made himself known to us and helped us work out the italian written menu. house wine from the barrel was great. The plastic cutlery and a bit of chaos mentioned in other reviews should...

Yes this place is cheap but you get what you pay for and it is not cheerful. Had the fried calamari (yuck-not crispy and had sweet balsamic reduction drizzled on it) and the seafood spaghetti (so salty it was like sea water had been added). Was going to get wine but it comes from a tank. For families-they don't have... More
