The Orange Garden is a quiet and peaceful place with an amazing panoramic view towards Rome and the Vatican. It is not very popular, and that is why - also not crowded. You may enjoy a small orange 'wood', some silence, and the great view from a terrace in the gatden.

We loved the place for its view and for the food. They serve italian food, but no pizza at lunch time. A perfect place to have lunch when visiting Monreale. Prices were mid range.

This place just blew our mind! We were strolling around looking for somewhere to eat and just behind a few orange and lime trees we could see this cute little restaurant overlooking the valley and Palermo down below...we wondered this is going to be expensive but decided to stay and eat due to its beautiful view and location..and it did...

Not as bad as Covo del Pirata in Cefalù, but not that good, either. The linguine con frutti di mare was overly salted! The fish over baked. Very fishy taste overall. Go somewhere else if a view is not important!

We stopped in here for lunch. The restaurant is set among orange and fruit trees and and has great views of Palermo. I had the caponata and my husband had mussels, and both were very good. We'd definitely return.

The terrace of this restaurant has a sweeping view of Palermo, its harbor and the Mediterranean beyond. We went on a Sunday afternoon after Mass in the Monreale Cathedral. We were six. We stayed for 3 hours. The food was great, the wine was terrific but best of all the service was warm, friendly and attentive. Most everyone else there... More

We had lunch on a rainy day and the view was still great. Sicilian antipasti, pastas, meat dishes (the one they serve on a salt slab was great). No pizzas for lunch :( Can easily recommend this. Service was slow, but then they did have a group of some 60 people which they accommodated parallel to us and since they... More

The terrace of this restaurant has a panoramic view of Palermo to die for, day or night. We at there twice. The first time we had the most expensive fish appetizer, followed by two more courses, and were impressed with the former and moderately satisfied with the latter. The second time just about everything was awful: the service was excruciatingly... More

Veeery good, but we were in a hurry...the food LOOKS very nice, but for the taste I can't say anything special...it is good, but especially nice to see, the taste is quite..average. They have a nice view on Palermo. Oh, the service is perfect, in every moment there is someone for sure, three waiters are walking around, checking if you... More

Very good service but be aware they don't open until about 8:30pm. There was a large party there but this did not affect the good service. Seafood fixed menu was delightful and included very large servings (we could have shared a meal and been well fed. Very nice view from the terrace too!
