Is the food served at grotta palazzese worth the price (€350 for a 2 vegetarian set menus, with wine pairings including an additional €10 for a cup of coffee at the end)? Erm... hell no! But, that doesn’t necessarily mean I don’t recommend it. It was a relatively chilly April evening but the view, the sounds of the waves crashing below and reverberating around the cave, and just everything about the setting was so beautiful we spent the meal pinching ourselves at where we were. Would recommend booking an hour or so before sunset - then you get to see daytime, dusk and nights from the setting. It was the last night of our holiday and we went as an anniversary present to each other - no regrets and we’ll remember it for a lifetime. Tip: beautiful shots by holding your phone out of the bars on the windows outside the toilets (don’t drop it!)

I installed TripAdvisor today literally just to write this review and warn people to avoid this scam. The cave is certainly nice but the overall experience was terrible. Very cold every client had to use blankets on top of their raincoats. Service is poor, waiters didn't care and couldn't speak English except from the quotes they memorized. Food is nothing special and outrageously overpriced. We ended up paying 300euro for 2. You can enjoy the nice terraces in the sun for a week with essentially the same view or eat mediocre food in the cold in this ripoff place. The choice is yours.

Food quality mediocre, but priced like a starred restaurant. Very disapointing experience with a bad aftertaste. Way too expensive for what you get. Don't go there. Avoid, it's a rip off.

I made dinner reservations online for my husband's birthday while in Italy and it was worth the wait. The location is stunning and it's an experience that you will surely remember.
You should visit the website and read the info about the menu, prices and other useful details in order to have an enjoyable experience. We visited the location in May and it tends to get chilly and windy after sunset so you should dress accordingly or just ask the staff for a blanket.
We had an excellent dinner, great service and overall a memorable celebration.

Fantastic experience at the Grotta Palazzese!! Although it is expensive our food was delicious & the view is amazing! Got to the restaurant 30 minutes before our reservation & walked straight in without a queue. Watched the sunset over dinner & a lovely glass of wine (there is a lot of choice.) The staff are friendly, attentive & happy to take photos. We were not rushed but it was not very busy. Definitely worth a visit, we loved every minute!
