Was sceptical based on some reviews but food was really good. Location was incredible and we had a top table. Toilets could be better and entrance lobby not great but restaurant, service, location all superb. Would recommend it although it is a bit overpriced.

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Polignano a Mare. Once as a couple for dinner & once for a lunchtime business meeting. I thought it was overpriced for what it was, the food was OK but not worth 200Euro+ per head. Men...More

Amazing ambience in this grotto restaurant. However the prices are a little excessive. Per person price in Euro: 130 for two courses 150 for three or 200 for fixed menu. Get there early to get the best seats

We loved this place, it’s very expensive but worth going. The food was good and man can’t wear shorts. The ambiance is delightful. I would definitely like to come back. It was great experience for our family even our children appreciate it.

We found the food good but a bit underwhelming given the price. The location is what you go for though, and this cannot be faulted. Good service. Booking essential.

As a number of places with amazing views, do have mediocre food or service combined with some of the negative reviews, I had really low expectations. I was glad to say my low expectations were uncalled for. It was fantastic. We do eat out a...More

I read many reviews here both good and bad. When we are planning our trips we usually like to reserve a table at a restaurant, that is out of the ordinary, either for the food quality or the experience. This one we booked expecting the...More
