In the restaurants and pizzarie in Castelbuono they are only using local produce of vegetables and meat. And the seafood comes from the Thyrrenian sea north of Sicily. The goods are brought directly to the restaurants by the producer - goods fresh and egological.

Have lunch with me in my house

When you are visiting Castelbuono (or Sicily) it is possible having lunch in my house where I am cooking Sicilian food mixed with bit of my heritage from the Danish kitchen.

Cycas Restaurant and Pizzaria - Bar

This lovely place is located in the heart of Castelbuono just a few minutes walking from Piazza Margherita - a few steps off the main street where the bar is just along side this street.
Inside the restaurant is a nice and hospital atmosphere and the food served is beautiful not expensive and there is plenty of it on the plaits. A good place to taste typical Sicilian produce made into excellent food.

Donjon Pub and Restaurant in Castelbuono

Along the street connecting Piazza Margherita and the castle you find this pub. It is a nice and friendly place with excellent food. It is open all day every day. The kitchen has a break though from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. but then you can have a snack from the snackbar: a panino or a pizza slice. You don't have to stay hungry!

The photo is from a beautiful post not distant from Castelbuono - only a couple of hours by foot - a nice walk in the forest. And by your return to the village you can have a nice meal in Donjon!
