The food was excellent. But being placed in the center of the room was not fun. I work has a server in a nice steak house. So know how to stage time on guest ordering thier courses. We felt very rushed. Our waited wanted all the courses together. Maybe it's the way I was trained not to do.

At Palmaria you can find everything at top level: atmosphere, service, quality and refinement of each dish. A point of reference for any other restaurant.

The food was very fresh and regional. We shared the gnocchi with scampi burnt butter and sage which was exceptional. Veal with tuna sauce and veal scallopini were also delicious.

The ambience of the terrace sitting area was good as we have a table that was facing the sea. The season plate with fried calamari & prawn was quite ok, not very marvelous as compared to our previous fried seafood dish at one of the Corniglia restaurant.

The service was good.
I Only served My wine by myself, So that was a little dissapointed.
Normal I tip good But this time i did not.
But the food was not what I expexted.
Only the main dish with meat was very excellent choice. And the Wine.
The view was amazing.

Our booking for an outside table was saved by THE most helpful & friendly bar manager. Despite having booked it months in advance, the restaurant manager was not willing to honour the booking for a table outside.

We have never paid so much for so little. We waited far too long between courses and departed hungry. The management did take off the cost of our coffee and one limoncello but sadly we cannot recommend this restaurant at all.

Palmaria is perfectly situated in the middle of Portovenere with wonderful sea views. Service was almost flawless (except for the espresso I ordered and never got) and Bruno, our waiter, was absolutely charming.
We had the tasting menu - 4 courses for 65 euros.
The raw seabass dish was wonderful. Very fresh, simple, with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil - perfect.
The traditional mussles dish was also very good, just a bit too salty.
The other 2 courses did not match the beginning of the meal. Pasta with chick peas & calamari looked very enticing on the meni, but tasted mainly of MSG. Very strange in this kind of restaurant.
The seabass with vegetables (which they graciously agreed to serve us instead of the John Dory that was on the menu) was too small and really plain and bland.
We had a wonderful white wine from Elba.
Dessert (chocolate mousse ( was very good.
I feel that with a little effort this restaurant could be amazing. Unfortunately this was not our experience,

Over hyped & over priced. They try to make their food interesting bit miss the mark. For exzmple, a steamed
soggy skinned sea bass fillet serbed with mayonnaise. Stuffy and pretentious. staff was fine.

Very nice location, good service and food. Price pretty much in line with expectations. Food portions not very big, above all no/ very small side dish, but overall good choice!
