You're completely in the hands of the chef at this temple to seafood. They're good hands indeed, which is why Pantagruel is one of the most respected restaurants in Calabria. The prix-fixe menu (the only option) depends on the day's catch, but you'll surely encounter something memorable: for instance, a salad of octopus so thinly sliced and delicate that it's reminiscent of carpaccio, or a tender whole orata (sea bream) with fava beans. Pantagruel is set in an elegant
old house with sweeping views of hills dotted with little towns.
