As rather frequently visiting high ranked restaurants world wide, I think I am able to compare, and must say this place belongs to the better ones for sure. - Although the menu is a bit conservative. Especially the seasonal dishes with... More

We were lucky enough to enjoy breakfast each day (including champagne) as well as two dinners. The food was spectacular as well as the service. Can not wait to eat here again.

It is worth for non-residents of the hotel to climb up ( by car or funicular ) to Orselina and the restaurant Orselina. A gastronomic creative cuisine by a experienced chief at a breathtaking location with great views on the lake and the mountains.

"Il restaurante" promises with its locations and surpasses all expectations you may have... Chef Fallini has orchestrated a lovely selection of "italianita" meeting every taste. Try the degustation menu... you will not be disappointed. We shall return

The Italian chef is from the Four Seasons in Tokyo, so he's the real deal. Absolutely first rate meal.
