Beautiful and challenging food

We had a great experience at Lunasia - the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the food was just a little bit too challenging for us at times. Sea urchin ice-cream and granite on seawater and oyster sauce was beautifully presented, but didn't suit our tastebuds. The bloody mary ice-cream... read more

Was excited by the opportunity to dine here. Had the degustation menu it was all beautifully presented and arranged problem was a lot of the courses were not very good. Pasta with sea urchin was bitter, octopus ravioli was slimy. There was very little that I actually enjoyed which is hard as I am not a fussy eater. Nice setting,... More

This one starred Michelin restaurant is worth a visit. The food is eccentric and surprising but very tasty. The resort personnel is very sweet and helpful but not quite Michelin standard. All in all a good experience although a bit pricy.

First of all, this place is more than a restaurant. It is a place where they have transformed food to art. The different menus together with excellent service explain why they are awarded with a Michelin star. I can strongly recommend a visit if you want a lifetime experience to a decent price compared to this extremely high level.

We ordered the 5 course menu and it was just sublime from start to end. It took us on a 2h journey through the tastes of great food. The service was impacable, good English spoken, explaining every dish with passion, not just studied or read from a card. We had a selection of 3 different olive oils together with 13... More

Such care & attention to presentation, content & delcious meal and wanting to explain why dishes were selected & for what reason gave this review its cherry on the cake. I have rarely witnessed such an intense way of describing why the 6 senses antipasto was why it was, the waitresses were impeccablly knowledged with an impeccable & carefully selected... More

They intend to do strange food but also is terrible! Not good at all. I prefer to go to MC Donald's.

We selected the degustazione menu of 5 dishes and the restaurant offered us an extra 5 starters . All were delicious and some were very innovative like the mussel icecream or the smokey pasta. All six of us were thrilled. The environment is modern and the staff was very helpful and polite. Excellent wine list

We ate here as a family with two small children and decided to try the 10-plus-course tasting menu (3 hours), and we all enjoyed the experience, even the kids. Each course was an eye-widening surprise, and the taste surpassed the beauty of the plating. The hors d'oeuvres were a delight in terms of presentation, originality, flavours and textures, and the...
