They present the beautiful flavours of Sicily with the delicate skill and attention to detail of Japan. Also the sashimi, and tempura were excellent. Ate her by chance the first night and returned the second night as the food was so good, tuna tartar and pasta with shrimp and sea urchin were amazing. Matched with an excellent wine list at...

We found La Cambusa by chance, as it was recommended to us by the owner of Sicilia in Tavola, a place we wanted to but had to move our reservation. La Cambusa is, like most good Italian restaurants, unassuming but grows on you once you ask the owner what he would recommend. We had warm octopus salad, which was wonderfully... More

I was immediately enchanted by the beautiful building and arches of this wonderful restaurant in Ortiga. The food was delicious, combining traditional cuisine with some innovative and creative dishes. Wine was stupendous as well, and we finished off the meal with dessert and limoncello... divine! The combination of ambience, taste, and good company made for my favourite dining experience during... More

We were in Syracuse on a family holiday with nine of us including four kids, all 12 and under. One was celebrating his 11th birthday the night we went to La Cambusa. It's quite a charming place, housed in old stone warehouse, with the dining room on the second floor having a nice view out over the water. We arrived... More

Saw reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to try, were a little wary when we arrived at 19:30 and we were the only people there but had no need to worry. The owner discussed the menu with us and how we would like our fish cooked. Food superb with excellent ingredients and taste. Excellent meal would recommend seeking this place... More

I found this place online and was intrigued by the Sicilian-Japanese cuisine. When we arrived and walked up the stairs, the restaurant only had 1 table occupied so we were a little wary. We decided to give it a shot and I’m glad we did. We had some of the best tuna tartar and really enjoyed the fried cheese appetizer.... More

Charming setting. Lovely views over the harbor. The combination Japanese-Sicilian would be interesting but the place (and its kitchen) has seen better days. Apart from some sushi and sashimi there is nothing special about the menu and its soulless presentation. Will not return.

The food in this place is just terrible, there is not much to add. For the first time in my life I had to send back to the kitchen a dish, it was just unbeatable and smelling terribly. The rest of the dinner was eatable, which I consider already a great achievement given the start. But far far away from... More
