Overview
More
An al fresco bar with a difference. Positano’s newest watering hole is not just another seaside bar. An elegant raft suspended above the sea, vibrant with the colours of the Amalfi Coast, it represents, in design and details, a unique convergence of talented artists and craftsmen, assembled here to pay tribute to the man whose impeccable taste did so much to define the signature style of Le Sirenuse. The result is a contemporary al fresco bar with an old-fashioned, quality-first drinks menu; a place for amore, for friends, for a post-swim aperitif, for quiet contemplation of all that beauty.

This is beautifully decorated and service was great. It is a pricey place but definitely a romantic date. You can’t really see the sunset just because of where Positano itself is situated but you can still see the sky change colors. Great service.More

Views were absolutely unbeatable! The cocktails were slightly higher in price in comparison to other surrounding bars, but they were also better made with more top shelf ingredients and presentation. Highly highly recommend!!! Get in early for the best seats
