“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

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.

“Wonderful view and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

This is why we will come back:

- wonderful setting with open outlook on the lake
- you can also sit in the shade and enjoy the view there, if you feel too hot in the sun
- very friendly service
- seasonal dishes, preparated with care
- we asked for plain pasta with butter for our two children (10 and 14 years old) and each of them got a plate with tasty fresh noodles. On the bill we found the charge of Fr. 22.- for both plates: We appreciated very much that the restaurant was so flexible to charge one dish and split it onto two plates. Many gourmet restaurants would not handle it that way. Nice gesture!

“A delight...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

"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.
