5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2012

although all of our food in italy has been enjoyable, our experiences at lido tropical were truly exceptional. they included creative, entirely fresh, wonderful dishes, served by warm, engaging, fluent multi-lingual staff.
I can't recommend this venue highly enough. run by a beautiful couple with a talented staff.

“Very welcomming not packed and good restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

Francesco will welcome you as a friend to his Lido. They have a good local cuisine and offer a wide variety of drinks and snacks. The chairs and umbrellas are in mint condition and the Lido size is not too big. The chairs are not to close one to the other as it is in other Lido around. Books in different languages available to borrow. The beach is haft withe sandy and haft rock. It is a good thing to have water shoes. The water of the sea is blue azure … Wonderful …

“Excellent beach-side restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2012

We are lucky to have been able to visit Tropea many times over the last 10 years. We have visited many restaurants over this period but have ended up with a repertoire of no more than five or six which we use. Last night we tried a new one......Lido Tropical and it is now definitely on our list. We thought the atmosphere, service and food was first class. The restaurant is run by people who are serious about what they do and obviously enjoy doing a good job. Highly recommended!

“Best food of our Italian vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2012

Every time at Lido Tropical was a culinary treat. We looked forward to some nice seafood there, but each time we found the catch of the day was far more than "nice" - it was mouth-watering, fresh and cooked and flavored to perfection. Apparently they have a connection for the freshest seafood caught and brought to market every morning at dawn. Their cook is creative and talented, and takes excellent product and makes it exquisite. Presented in an aesthetic manner, for example the grilled swordfish with swatches of delicious balsamic on the plate. The staff has to be the happiest crew I've seen - hard-working and talented and attentive to their customers - but fun-loving folks who enjoy working together as a team. The sign says they speak English, German, Dutch (Italian of course) , and they make all their customers feel right at home. Of course their beach and facilities are excellent - my favorite at Tropea. Looking forward to my next visit there!

“Longing to get back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

Having by far the happiest and most sociable staff this is the best place to meet new friends. Being situated on the best spot of the beach makes it the perfect place for long lazy beach days.
