• Overview
  • Food & Drink

Beloved for its historic structure and Greek, Roman and Medieval influence, the Hotel Excelsior Palace is one of those truly grand hotels. It overlooks the iconic Mount Etna and the Bay of Naxos, and exudes drama and romance ­­­– we just love its peaceful pool, beautiful gardens and cliffside location.

The restaurant at Hotel Excelsior Palace is all about showcasing the very best Sicilian specialities using local ingredients – from wines sourced in Etna to delicious home-made pastries. Whether you prefer dishes from the land or sea (or both!) you can enjoy your meal from the elegant dining room or the wonderfully Mediterranean veranda, which boasts panoramic views across the town and bay.

Ask our Flight Centre Concierge team about booking your table in advance.

Why we recommend Hotel Excelsior Palace

The Hotel Excelsior Palace has been nestled in the heart of Taormina since 1904, with the hilltop town’s restaurants, shops and Ancient Theater all within easy walking distance. Best of all, though, are its panoramic views, encompassing the town, the sea, and the majestic Mount Etna. You can even opt for a room facing the volcano (which we highly recommend), so you can spend your evenings soaking up the natural wonderment from your balcony. Guests will also love the Sicilian fare and hospitality on offer at the on-site restaurant, not to mention getting in touch with nature in the hotel grounds – a blissful haven of flora and fauna.
