A fish restaurant, that can't cook squid, should shut up shop and try something else. I had an octopus salad that consisted of a plate of tough octopus with two very small leaves and a piece of lemon. I had ordered stuffed squid, for my main, and two grilled squid were served up with the obligatory piece of lemon. When... More

This is very nice restaurant located near by the sea and the port. Very good quality food, fresh fish and wine. Nice gentle personnel will take care about you and will suggest what to eat even for simple dinner ! Good value for money, average price not to high. Suggestable

The service here was rather chaotic, although always friendly. I am not sure that makes up for it though, perhaps I would just prefer efficient. The restaurant was not full but things took too long and no one seemed in charge. The food itself was a bit of a mixed experience. The portions are generous and the mussels were tasty... More

Wandering up and down past various restaurants and saw La Cambusa to be quite busy and quite smart looking. We entered and even although several staff members saw us walk in it took a wee while to be acknowledged and shown to a table. The menus arrived quite quickly and then we waited, waited for drinks, waited for water and... More

We sat outside in what they call the garden but it looks nothing like a garden... Its just some space on one of the sides of the restaurant where there is no good light and they put in your table a lantern so that you can see. The pasta with squid, shrimp, etc was average... Then fried calamari and shrimp... More

We stopped at this pleasant little town for lunch on our way from Cefalu to Trapani. We a had a quick look at all the restaurants on the waterfront and this one looked a cut above the rest. Great service and ambience. Squid was super fresh (my Asian GF is very particular about freshness of seafood) and the local pasta... More

We were visiting Castellammare and walked by this very attractive and busy restaurant at lunchtime. We were made very welcome. The service was good and the food even better. Great value too. Try the house mixed starter and the fragottini di pesce.

Located right in the small but picturesque harbor. The menu is heavily seafood and when the chef overheard my wife speaking about her tomato allergy she offered to make her a special dish. Every dish was delicious. The waitstaff is typically casual and getting the check is a chore, typical of all of Italy.

I work in the food industry and find it hard to be overwhelmed by the food. The food was stunning but the service was a bit slow, it was very busy tho. I would definitely eat here again
