This is a classy joint....great linen, great staff...nicely spaced tables. it was quiet on the early evening we were there...and we were talked through the menu by the owner. Food was first class.... People sometimes think this can be a dangerous area...forget it...this comes from neurotic Americans who tend to not stray too far from their hotels. We were underchanged... More

Gadir is a high end restaurant, offering high-end, high-quality food, in a naturally elegant but sympathetic and unassuming manner, which infuses everything from the dinning room ambiance, to table settings, waiting staff and above all the food. I was about to recommend the Primi ( it will take me a long time to forget the taste of their ravioli and... More

We arrived more than two hours early to find the restaurant closed, but the charming manager Dorothea opened the restaurant for us and welcomed us in . My family and I ordered salads and pastas all of which were excellent. I came to the restaurant feeling dizzy from waking in the sun, so the lovely Dorothea brought me pillows to... More

We enjoyed the food that was served at Ristorante Gadir, but felt that we were tricked into eating more than we ordered. We began with an appetizer which we intended to share. Instead it seemed that we received three complete appetizers. The main courses were normal. Finally we all received desserts that we did not order. We did not know... More

You can expect a lovely meal here in a comfortable restaurant with a stylish mix of modern over the ancient building fabric. My fish was delicious with an interesting sauce made from sea urchin. I had never had it before and it was an unusual taste of oyster mixed with egg yolk. Very nice. Also, huge wine selection but as... More

Amazing restaurant. From beautiful starer, very tasty and subtle main, great desert modern interior to superbly attentive service (waitress was very kind and translated all the menu without even asking, describing the dishes to perfection and even giving great recommendations). House made Limoncello not to be missed!

This place was recommended to us by the Duchess of Palma. It was a little hard to find but worth the effort. I started with an appetizer of black bread and bacala with a clementine mustardo. Next course was housemade ravioli with burrito and lemon in an almond sauce. Unbelievably good! I asked for and got a cheese plate to... More

We went here after a recommendation and were not disappointed. We did check out the restaurant the night before and found the interior very nicely done. Modern with ancient arches. We were advised about special starters which was excellent, just fresh crustacean mussels, raw shrimp, sea urchin, etc. excellent pasta and as main dish again very fresh fish, prepared with... More

In palermo city, you can find a lot of restaurants of quality. Gadir is not only one of them. It has something special, very difficult to define. A mixture of several cooking skills combined with a touch of innovation gives to the dishes, even the simplest ones a special savor. The discussions with Le Chef on the menu allowed us... More
