Named for the fragrant orange blossom that scents the estate, Zagara restaurant is a unique expression of place, with a menu that revels in the flavours and ingredients of the Mediterranean, from the local catch of the day, served with homegrown braised fennel and citrus, to "Spaghettoni" with shrimp from Sciacca, zucchini leaves, and lemon.


There are seafood restaurants and then there’s Amare. Walk across the sand and step inside, listening as the waves lap against the shore, and settle in for a night of sublimely fresh seafood on the beachfront.


Liolà is a stunning setting, whether you’re enjoying a romantic clifftop dinner for two or a lively family feast - With a colourful dining room that celebrates and showcases local artisanal crafts, and an outdoor terrace that looks out over the Sicilian coastline,
