Minerva

The terrace: breakfast and dinner

At the highest point of the hotel, our sweeping terrace with views of the Mediterranean is where guests gather on warm summer mornings to savor the generous buffet breakfast surrounded by lush birds of paradise, white bougainvillea, and solanum flowers under the shade of natural cane awnings.

When the weather is cool, or if guests prefer privacy, breakfast can be ordered through room service at no extra charge.

Each evening at sunset, the terrace transforms into the ideal spot for a romantic dinner by candlelight.

The pool bar: lunch and cocktails

Stop for a light lunch: choose our popular spaghetti tossed with island lemons or with fresh tomatoes and basil, or from our selection of salads, sandwiches, toasted panini, cheese and charcuterie platters, and fresh fruit. Unwind at sunset with a cool cocktail or one of our custom fruit juice drinks or granite, prepared fresh to order with all-natural ingredients.

The Lobby Bar

Our Lobby Bar is the perfect spot to savor a selection of the finest labels from single malt whiskey to gin, grappa, and, above all, house cocktails prepared by our bartender, who can prepare classics and signature drinks made with local ingredients including lemons and other seasonal fruit from Capri.
