The first time I visited Kentia I was with a group of roughly 8 people which was walking in the surrounding of the restaurant. The place seemed inviting and despite the crowd queuing to get a table we opted to to do the same. One of the manager/owner booked us a table and told us would have taken 20 minutes... More

Not as bad as some recent reviews make it seem. Went through some very bad reviews but decided to give it a try as it had been recommended by our b&b. Did not regret it, but nothing out of this world. The dessert, warm pistachio cake was the best part of the meal and the place is very welcoming.

Super popular with local families at lunch time. We stopped in because it was the only seaside restaurant that served pizza for lunch. While the seaside terrace was nice, the pizza was just edible, the worst we've had in Sicily. So we were not impressed.

Look beyond the long, narrow and somewhat off-putting entrance and you will find an old traditional oil press and a restaurant which overlooks the rocks and sea, serving good, tasty and locally sourced quality dishes. The night we were there a bride and groom were having atmospheric photos taken on the rocks below the terrace. but as it was almost... More

Stopped there for aperitivo before heading to dinner then let the friendly, if pushy, waiter convince us to have dinner there and even advise us on what to order. Food was OK but nothing special. However the surprise came when the bill was delivered! What we thought would be free or cheap antipasto with our aperitivo (not cold cuts or... More

Whilst it has to be said the staff need a fire cracker up their butt for them to smile. We have dined here twice now and the food is exceptional ! If you are lucky are enough to sit on the terrace the views are also incredible. Highly recommend the pizzas! From what we experienced the food and wine are... More

we've been with my wife and spend nice evening with tasty wine. The food I got was perfect, but pasta for my wife was well over seasoned, appetizer had some plastic remaining, which was not pleasant. Staff was nice and the restaurant location has cliff/sea view. Mixed feelings though while writing you to go or not to go for a... More

After a full day of wonderful Sicilian food it was hard to think of another meal, so our group opted for a lighter meal of pizza and salad. Delicious and close to our hotel. Sat on the patio. Reservations are recommended.

Overpriced, Waiting Staff that lack any Customer Service skills, it has a good location so if you want that as the priority then fine but if you want good food and service don't waste your money here. As they say looks can be deceiving.
