Terrazza Tiberio serves simple Mediterranean flavours using local ingredients fit for sophisticated palates; chef Francesco de Simone dishes up traditional dishes such as home-made marjoram ravioli or baked sea bass with panzanella. alongside kosher options such as fried cod with courgettes or tubettoni pasta.
If it’s balmy, you’d be barmy not to bagsy a spot on the terrace.
Lunch is served 12.30pm–2.30 pm and dinner from 7.30 pm to 11pm.
Mornings offer the full breakfast regalia, then 11am–11.30pm choose from a huge array of local specialities such as spaghetti alle vongole as well as room-service classics such as hamburgers and club sandwiches.
Jacky is the open-all-day lounge bar that spills out into a tiny front garden at the front. The fresh pastel decor and warm ambience makes it as beguiling for a morning latté as a Jacky (champagne with strawberries and Cointreau) or a Caesar Tonic Pepper (Gin, Giava's peppercorns, grapefruit and pepper) in the evening. One too many though and you might be tempted to have a tinkle on that white baby grand.
