Experience breathtaking views of the Adriatic Sea and world-class dining 22 meters above sea level.
You might’ve seen it on your social media timeline—a stunning restaurant built directly inside a jagged cliff and overlooking the majestic Adriatic Sea.
For the curious, this enchanting spot is Grotta Palazzese Hotel Restaurant, an Italian dining establishment located in Polignano a Mare in southern Italy’s Puglia region.
Sitting 22 meters above sea level, the restaurant offers a unique dining experience where diners can tuck into cuisine like Thai squid and grilled garlic prawns with Fiano di Avellino wine while gazing out to an unobstructed view of the big, blue sea.
Built centuries ago, the restaurant had been the site of banquets hosted by nobilities dating back to the 1700s. Today, it attracts curious travelers and locals alike, who flock to the restaurant during its opening months from May to October.
To work up an appetite, consider strolling through the narrow streets of the medieval town built above it, where scenic white buildings and natural caves await.
