It would be hard to say how this place could be made any better. It is absolutely lovely. We turned up with two dogs and the helpful, friendly staff bent over backwards to sort us out a table. They then took pains to explain the...More

Friendly staff, lovely views, fresh ingredients. Why, then, was it all so ordinary? There are so very many wonderful restaurants in Liguria - this one just doesn't have the 'wow' factor.

Fantastic food! Very big portions, all served in a beautiful way! We were sitting on the terrace with a view on the island Gallinara! Absolutely amazing and would highly recommend it!

We have been Babette fans for many years. There is a consistency in the quality of the food and preparation, gracious greeting, fair value. Whether you are driving or on foot (as we usually are), it takes a little effort to get here, but it...More

We loved the old Babette, on a central street in Albenga. It was elegant and had almost a French sensibility with regard to decoration, presentation and intimate service. But the store front location on a busy street afforded no parking and some people are not...More

The restaurant was founded in 2002 in the city center and in a short time become one of the reference points for quality cuisine of Albenga, then in March 2013 the dream set me up for a new adventure turns into reality with the new location on the beach in the most suggestive of the coast. Babette serves traditional seafood cooked with Mediterranean flair and imagination by the owner Fabio Bonavia and its young and close-knit staff. The menus change every season drawing ingredients from the gardens Ingauni and the Ligurian Sea! A special proposal is reserved to noon with a dedicated menu with tasty dishes offered at affordable price! Bread, pasta and desserts are all homemade Extensive wine cellar with a selection of French wines and sweet wines by the glass
