We couldn't wait to try this place after reading a lot of the reviews. Service is slow and strange. The place is kept very cool for the winter so bring a jacket. The food was terrible. My husband had the steak dinner. The steak dinner came with just one this slice of grilled fatty steak and a lemon wedge for... More

This place was really good. We ordered whole fish (bass) which arrived on a beautiful plate, definitely fresh catch, with wonderful potato and tomato sides. The price was really good. We really enjoyed the whole experience. The sauce served with the fish was otherworldly.

We were greeted by the friendliest server, kissed by the lovely owner and stuffed by the chef! We dined on Linguinie All'Astice and Spaghetti con Zucchine. Tremendous! The service was phenomenal and the view spectacular. This is equally as nice for families and the servers are happy to be there. BIG THUMBS UP!

After a gorgeous, harrowing drive, beautiful Ristorante Cambusa has the best location on the black sand beach, overlooking the cliffs and the ocean. Delightful staff were courteous and knowledgeable. Our fresh pasta with Langoustine (lobster)and fresh spaghetti Alla Vongole (clams) was first rate. Wine selection was excellent as well. Nice to know you can have both great location and views...

After reading good reviews on this site, we chose La Cambusa among the small number of restaurants open in the off-season for lunch on a Friday afternoon. A table on the patio with an ocean view was nice. However, for the price, the pasta was only mediocre particularly compared to prior and subsequent Sorrento meals, and the service was slow.... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by our driver, Luigi De Martino in Positano. We had dinner here, a nice little restaurant with a beautiful view of the water. We found service to be slow, and inattentive, and our meal when it finally arrived, was average. It was a weekday night when we dined, and the restaurant was not busy,... More

We had a really great lunch, it was off season and it was perfect. We had Alici to start with and then I had pasta with zucchini, clams and pecorino, it was probably one of the best pastas of our weekend in the Amalfi Coast and one of the best views. The presentation and service was very good. thank you... More

We had dinner here on a Monday night, so it may have been a case of lacking the energy the restaurant might have on a busy night. It is down along the beach where many of the main tourist restaurants are, but seemed to be a bit more authentic. While we enjoyed the food, there are far more quaint places... More

We went for lunch at this place. The restaurant is situated first floor facing the beach. The view is marvellous. Food wise is pretty good. Should give it a go if you want a good view over your meal.

We had coffee at La Cambusa and sat at a table upstairs on the terrace with amazing views of the beach at Positano. The coffee and pastries were excellent and very good value for the location.
