The Seaside Restaurant Set Inside a Cave



In the town of Polignano a Mare in southern Italy (province of Bari, Apulia), lies a most unique dining experience at the Grotta Palazzese. Open only during the summer months, a restaurant is created inside a vaulted limestone cave, looking outwards toward the sea. The restaurant is part of the Grotta Palazzese hotel located above.

Imagine the sound of water crashing against the shore as a gentle sea breeze hits your face. Wine in hand, Italian food en route and good company… yeah sign me up.

Like so many reviews on Trip Advisor, the feedback is quite varied. From the ‘best place ever’ to ‘this place is a dive’. Many of the reviews are also of the hotel itself and not just the restaurant. Plan accordingly, but the Sifter would love to dine here on the surroundings alone. Give me a bottle of wine, some bread and olive oil and I’m good!
