Our tour group took us here for coffees. It's a pleasant enough place. It does overlook the water, but it's just fishing boats. Also, it's next to gas pumps, so don't sit near there. La Kambusa's claim to fame is that in 1968 Federico Fellini filmed "The Count of Monte Christo" here, making the restaurant look like a jail.

Not the best view in town but great cappuccino and friendly service and clean bathrooms - can you ask for more? Recommend - especially the cappuccino.

We were in Ponza for three days, had lunch "by chance" at La Kambusa on our first day and came back for lunch also on our second and third day. Lunch at La Kambusa was a fixed event in our daily schedule and we would re-arrange other activities to ensure that we could have lunch at La Kambusa. The "Pasta... More

The owners have managed this place for many decades and they have seen the top of the jet-set stopping by for dinner! The owner of the restaurant also manages some boat-hiring business and he can recommend some things to do... More

This resto is clearly in the tourist trap category. It is perched on the promenade of the harbour of which once it must have had a beautiful view , but now is obscured by the parking lot. We wanted a light inexpensive lunch, so asked for spaghetti with tomato (€10) and a Penne Estate (€12) with a glass of house... More
