We didn't have the "molecular" tasting menu (whatever that is) but just had choices from the al la carte. My meal was extremely disappointing. I had gnochetti with a game ragout, but the (very dry) sauce had very little juice or life, and had very little flavour. My main was scallops, which were only luke warm, and were served with... More

First, the decor of this restaurant was lovely, not too stiff, with a beautiful view of Lake Como. Second, the staff was attentive, not at all snooty, friendly and helpful. When we asked for a wine recommendation that was something different and local, he was was like a boy sharing a favorite toy - and the wine that he shared... More

My husband had the molecular tasting menu and I ordered a la carte. Everything was delicious. Staff was wonderful and the view was stunning.

This is the setting to enjoy dinner as theater. Overlooking the best view of Lake Como, Mistral is ideal for a special occasion. The chef infuses molecular gastronomy into his seasonal local dishes, so it's the best of both worlds. It's also incredibly romantic.

We were sick of the generic Italian food in Bellagio so decided to splash out on a meal at Mistral and were glad we did. The food was great and well presented, although not the best Michelin stared meal i've had (we are spoilt for choice in London) we still had a wonderful evening.

We chose this restaurant purely because of the molecular menu and the food was great but really outdated and lacked inspiration and the surprise effect you'd expect after 12 years of molecular dining in Italy. Nice wines, good service and really nice setting for a dinner. Not sure about the Michelin star, though. Something needs to be done pretty soon…old... More

Excellent service, did the mirco menu 7 course and it was ok, a couple of good courses. The desert was made with canned pineapple , bad , ice cream was good. Great room with a view, would not go again, but good to do once

The Mistral is undoubtedly the most overstated one star Michelin restaurant in the world. The tasting menu was insipid, poorly presented and to top it all, the chef ( if you can call him that) used canned peaches for his "gran finale" What a disaster of a meal. Avoid all all costs, it is not worth the view and the... More

Pidgin was cold, tuna was old, spinach was soggy, plates weren't warmed, food was simply horrible (not just average). Location, service, music, decor was great; they just need to get a chef/kitchen staff was somewhere other than McDonalds. Very disappointed.

My husband made a reservation at Mistral and asked for a special table because it was my birthday. We were not staying in the hotel. When we arrived they provided us with a fabulous table with a view that I will never forget. Our meal was delicious from beginning to end. We took our waitstaff's suggestions on most everything. I...
