We did B&B at this hotel but no dinner, although tasting menu looked lovely but want to especially recommend the terrace for cocktails to which non-residents are welcome. They cost between 15-30 euro which sounds mad but the view of bay and Mt Etna, the high-quality drinks and accompanying snacks and pianist, friendly service and the surroundings are all truly...

This hotel is right below the entrance to the Greek Theater. It was a very hot day and we stopped here for a cold drink. What a wonderful experience. The bar is on a terrace overlooking the public gardens as well as the hotel's own beautiful garden. We ordered lemonade and it was served with a lovely little tray of... More

We ate twice at this restaurant overlooking the bay, it's a fabulous location. Service is impeccable, warm and without fault. The food is exceptionally good; sophisticated versions of classic Sicilian food, my stuffed zucchini flowers were more or less perfect and fish was exceptional. This is a grand international hotel and prices match but I would say it was worth... More

The setting is dramatic with stunning views of Taormina and the water. A dreamy dining location indeed. The service was excellent; very friendly and professional. Whoever has had a bad experience at this restaurant was probably not dressed appropriately to dine here and thus probably got the shaft. Once a table close to the edge overlooking the vistas cleared up,... More

This was an expensive meal, which is to be expected when going to a place of this caliber. The experience was very special with a fantastic view overlooking the water, wonderful service and delicious food.
