La Medusa information
Lonely Planet review
This is one of the best known and most popular restaurants in Ortygia. It made its name serving delicious couscous, but chef-owner Kamel also knows his way around a fish − the antipasto del mare (seafood starter) and fritto misto (mixed fish fry) come highly recommended. But beware, helpings are enormous so be careful not to over-order. Service is friendly and accommodating.
