The service was terrible. We had to ask to order drinks good and had to ask for bread. Our food was cold, it was pointless to complain as other people had complained, they were given an apology and told they were very busy. The young waiters were not very experienced, and whilst I appreciate everyone has to learn, it was as if they were there under duress! Shame as the setting is lovely and the food smelled good when walking past.

Sikelia is opposite the Hilton Giardini-Naxos and we can’t recommend this restaurant enough. The food is delicious, the service is friendly, welcoming and attentive yet discrete. The atmosphere is superb.
The best thing about the restaurant is the owners, a brother and two sisters, who really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They are charming, gracious and really looked after us. They are truly masters of the art of hospitality. We can not recommend Sikelia highly enough. It’s a must visit on the east coast of Sicily.

This restaurant is of sufficient quality. Not outstanding, but quite OK. Friendly service, helpful. The taste of the food was fine and in fact, the only deception we had was the relatively small quantity of the pasta. Apart from that, it is not exceptional but of largely sufficient quality to spend a nice evening.

First time I ate there I had scrambled egg and bacon which was excellent. When I went back I had a Greek salad which was lacking in Feta, which was disappointing. Homemade icecream was lovely. The staff were so friendly and helpful
