Italians, it is known, are a people very sensitive to the call of the table, indeed of good food. And for those Italians who also love to go to sea, being able to combine eating well and being at the table just a step away from the sea on which one has just sailed, is the top
. So here we went in search of those restaurants, scattered throughout the broad Mediterranean basin-so that, whatever your destination, you may always have one on hand-that combine precisely these two characteristics. That is, being one step, when not quite overlooking, the sea, and offering good cuisine, made of course with quality raw materials. They then range from the Balearic Islands to Greek Crete, via the French coast, the Italian sea and the beautiful coastline of Croatia.

We are on the beautiful island of Procida, in the Gulf of Naples: on the Chiaia beach overlooks this eatery (Via Pizzaco 10, tel. 081 8967602) from which there is a unique view of Marina Corricella. Traditional fish dishes and homemade pasta are enjoyed at the table.

Not quite on the sea, but about 500 meters from the port of Ciudadela, set at the end of the fjord that creeps into the ancient center of the village of Menorca (Carrer d’Alaior 40, tel. 0034 971482212), one discovers this special address that offers seafood recipes revisited with flair and international flavors.

Overlooking Matala Beach (tel. 0030. 2892045759, in Crete, is an establishment with a somewhat retro look but a really interesting gastronomic proposal. Try the lobster and the grilled catch. The Lions page on Tripadvisor

Its tables are all outdoors, just a few meters from the small town harbor in pretty Opatija (Frana Supila 12, tel. 00385 51701223), but the real top are its fresh fish dishes, declined in creative and original preparations. To be paired with local wines.

Overlooking the wild Porquerolles beach of the same name (tel. 0033 0494583248), this is the place to swim to, after dropping anchor in the roadstead. At tables on the cool veranda, you can enjoy a few but fine seafood dishes and more.
