For our trip to Sicily, we wanted to taste as much authentic, traditional Sicilian cuisine as possible. As we travelled from the East coast to the West, we certainly got our fill. We ended our trip, however, wanting to see what a Michelin star restaurant looks like in Sicily. Bye bye blues did not disappoint. It was a combination of... More

We have been recommended this restaurant as the best one in the city. It opens at 8pm, which is bit late for us, but still ok. Location: good. It is located in a quiet residential area, but easy to find if you put it in GPS. Parking is also ok Food: we expected a lot from this restaurant, but got... More

We were a group of four women very excited to experience one of Sicily's 3 restaurants that have gained Michelin star ratings so I guess our expectations were pretty high. As regards the place, it is located on a small street, very unassuming, and in order to be let must ring a doorbell. When we walked in, we were impressed... More

Hidden away behind a closed door a few streets up from the beach but an oasis of calm & attentive service once we were inside. The food was imaginative and very well prepared. The desserts were outstanding!

A Hidden Gem wow this is Italy's first Female Chef Roberrta Benedetto who has earned a Michelin Star The meal earned its rating and then some. Four of us had the Digestionne Sampling (5 courses) and they all proved to be intriguing and tastefully prepared. Emphasis is on local fish and we were not let down The fruita de mare... More

Deliciously refined Palermo cuisine, with fresh and local ingredients. A great way to try the selection of dishes is through the tasting menu however make sure you tell the wait staff to slow down the dishes as we felt a little rushed with our meals. The entree and mains were spectacular and what you would expect from a Michelin star... More

We have eaten in Michelin-starred restaurants all over the world. Bye Bye Blues had the least expensive tasting menu we have ever had, but the quality was simply not there. Most of the dishes were made with amberjack that had little flavor and an unpleasant side taste that I normally associate with frozen fish. The remaining dishes were flavorless, with... More

I had a vegetarian tortalini dish which was the only disappointment. The deserts were Magnificent. Best I've every had!! The price was excellent for the quality, not much ore than a standard restaurant. A... More

I had a wonderful experience at Bye Bye Blues. The staff were polite yet relaxed, they spoke great English, and they really seemed to like doing their jobs. The food was super tasty and interesting, even though the foundation was quite traditional. Only one course was a little dull out of the 5 courses including dessert (and an appetizer and... More
