Underappreciated for business lunches

A little bit out of the center of Lugano, and as a hotel not necessarily the first pick as a restaurant - well, it should be high on the list ! Very pleasant business lunch, seated at the very sunny window overlooking the lake. Service was impeccable - anticipatory, diligent, attentive, very... read more

A real disappointment. The restaurant service was slow even by Southern European standards. The food was mediocre and the prices exorbitant. You can find much better and hopefully avoid the other patrons who not only got frustrated by the slow service but also vented their ire very loudly which destroyed even the ambience

Eat in style with impeccable service. Menus combines local fare with traditional. Pastas are home made. Salads fresh and well dressed. Delightful dining room. Fish was fresh. Vegetables cooked to perfection. Wines a bit on the pricy side but nice selection of European wines. Desserts are to die for, nothing low cal😊 A true dining experience that is to be... More

Few things are more painful than a traditional restaurant in deep decline. The food was anything from average to terrible - the pike perch was almost inedible it was so old and fishy - while the service while all white glove was slow and ponderous. The atmosphere wasn't helped by one incredibly irate customer who started ranting about how slow... More

Not sure where to even start... Terrible vegetarian and regular club sandwiches, using slice pan bread that we waited almost 50 minutes for even though there were only two other tables in the bar. Freezing cold chips that were also hard and straight out of the freezer. We had driven around all day and as it was a Monday in... More
