If you like a laid back vibe but brilliant fish, then this is the place. Excellent service brilliantly cooked local fish - a small selection but all caught the previous night - you can watch them fishing as you eat. Never had so many sardines - watch them being grilled. But possibly the best is the 'all you can eat'... More

On a lovely sandy beach,you have to walk about 500 metres thro a nature reserve to get to but well worth it. Either to spend the day or go for a Eve I g meal.

We went preseason for a late lunch and were practically the only ones there. Very upbeat happy staff. The setting is right on the beach. We had grilled sardines (1) and a buffet antipasto (1) plus 2 glasses of wine for 26€

Since we were here in May...Zabbara is not open for dinner yet. However, we FEASTED on the antipasto for lunch and enjoy every morsel. Must have filled up my plate at least 3 times. Definitely got my $$$ worth at 12 euro/pp. AND the owner is a hoot. LOTS of personality. The owner of our B&B called ahead to make... More

Zabbara's lunch buffet (which lasts till mid-afternoon) hit the spot for us. It has a big choice of vegetables, which was welcome after our having had many pasta-heavy restaurant meals. The beach-side ambience was pleasant. We came back every day

Visited first time 2 years ago and returned last night - same fabulous food. We had the set menu - a cold mixed buffet to start with plenty of dishes and choice. The buffet was fresh and really tasty and the food top quality. The main was a choice of fresh fish or sausage. We had sardines. Cooked over coal... More

This place is on the lido Zabbara in Selinunte. The restaurant has a buffet and also proposes several dishes. It is a very casual place (you can also go with your baithing suit). Don't miss the bread (From Castelvetrano). Remember: YOU HAVE TO MAKE A RESERVATION!!!

The hostess of our B&B highly recommended this restaurant for dinner (it being shoulder season, the restaurant was not open daily). What an experience! You dine at long tables overlooking the beach. The only 2 people working at the restaruant were the grandfatherly waiter (possibly owner) and a man that could have been his best friend or brother, grilling fish... More

Another great find thanks to our hosts, Cirenza and Lorenzo at Sogna Charme E Relax in Selinute. Lido Zabbara is located right on the beach and involves a climb down a few wooden steps to reach it. Again, like my review of The Boomerang Restaurant in Selinute, this restaurant emphasis what simple local food and cooking is all about. You... More
