As I expect happens with many people passing here we spotted a table near the rails overlooking the fabulous view (the same view you can stand to look at from the square) and went in to sit and enjoy. Our waiter was not very pleasant...More

A wonderful view but the standard of food and service really don't make it worthwhile. I had a sandwich there at lunchtime today which was really disgraceful - overpriced and really poor quality.

We stumbled upon Caffe Wunderbar while visiting Taormina, and were attracted by its location (in a picturesque piazza overlooking the sea). The location is fantastic, and the service very good with good-humoured waiters. The food was very good, but Caffe Wunderbar is completely overpriced. We...More

What about 5.20 euro for an espresso! It's correct others say, the location is A1, but 5.20 for one sip espresso is rediculous. The Irish coffee was 14.50 euro We didn't go back after this experience

What a spot to have an expresso or a campari. This spectacularly situated cafe on Piazza IX Aprile sports a magnificent setting, spectacular views and the most civilzed atmosphere. Be prepared to pay for such exquisite surroundings. The service is professional and pleasant and the...More

Despite the rather rude staff, we had a maneral water, a lemon granita and two rather average cheese panninis. The bill....... 30euro ($42 or £21). No view or setting can be worth this!

The Wunderbar is in a lovely spot on a piazza in Taormina with a great view across the bay and up to Etna. There are plenty of tables outside and the waiters are attentive and friendly. Each evening there is live entertainment, sometimes a musical...More
