Expert review of Foreigners' Club

Enjoy stunning Sorrento bay views with your aperitifs.

This is one of the strangest places in Sorrento - take the name for starters (Circolo dei Forestieri) - but it does have a great terrace with wonderful views so I'm including it as somewhere where you might take an afternoon coffee or an aperitivo with a light snack. 

Food and drink: 

I'm breaking one of my own rules here as, on my last visit, the FC had a plastic-covered snack menu with the likes of paninis and toasted sandwiches on it, but remember that you're here for the view and grab yourself a terrace table and drink in the view with your G&T. Also, I'm assured that the menu has taken a step up and, as well as antipasti, including carpaccio of bresaolo (air-dried salted beef) or shrimp, rocket and parmesan, there is a long list of pastas and risottos as well as plenty of fish and meat dishes. The new menu has a rather 1970s feel to it and is clearly geared to 'foreigners' by including, as it does, the likes of prosciutto with melon, baked potatoes and apple pie. I'm going to check out the 'lemon delight' on my next trip…

Ambience: 

The club isn't on the main drag and consequently doesn't see a lot of traffic. This means that it can be a very relaxing venue and you may have that view all to yourself (but might also mean that the waiter forgets you're there), so I'd suggest nipping in for a sundowner and playing it by ear.

Service: 

It's a little lacklustre. 

Location: 

A short walk from Piazza Tasso, you'll pass it on the way down to Marina Grande

Price advice: 

Prices are slightly higher here… but it's still possible to have a starter, main and a drink for 15 euros (to around 40 euros).
