Description: Das Ecco im Giardino Hotel ist modern und sehr stilvoll eingerichtet. Durch das halbrunde gläserne Dach und die üppigen Kronleuchter entsteht ein sehr elegantes Ambiente. Die Kreationen von Rolf Fliegauf wurden auch mit 16 Gault Millau Punkten ausgezeichnet. Wer sich von seinem Talent überzeugen möchte, kann in dem Tessiner Restaurant Menüs in 3 - 8 Gängen kosten.

We returned to the Giardino for lunch but as we did not wanted to eat at the pool restaurant, we were asked to lunch in the 2* Michelin gourmet restaurant of the hotel, Ecco. While the interior design is more suitable for dinner, the food was amazing and the lunch menu for CHF 50 per person is a real treat.... More

I have visited the Ecco restaurant to celebrate the 40 years old' birthday of my boyfriend. For this occasion, I wanted to find the best restaurant of the region and we have found the best we have ever tried. The service was perfect, the tastes were so well defined, the presentation so raffined and sometimes surprising, the ambiance was posh... More

I have been to several two and three star restaurants and Ecco is equal with the best I have been to (Akelare in San Sebastian) The focus is on local sourcing where possible, taste and texture Try it if you are in Ticino over the summer as the restaurant closes for the winter It's not cheap but you will have...

I made a detour here en route to Italy and this is the second time I have eaten here. It is a gastronomic delight, one of the best restaurants in the world without doubt. A nice touch was Chef coming out from the kitchen to bid us Bon voyage, as I said to him - we will return!

At first we thought the portions were small but by the time we finished we were full. Everything freshly prepared and delicately served...well worth a visit. We went into... More

Interesting and slightly barmy (lobster lollipops) but the food is delicious and the service top notch. The best guinea foul I've ever tasted served in 2 styles. Good wine list and most importantly fun without being snooty.
