“5 course menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We had a 5 course menu and everything was really delicious : apetisers , salad with lobster and coquille saint jacques ; soupe , lamb and pannacota. Perfect service and fabulous view.
Rather pricy ( menu was 10.000 jpy = 70 euro ) but worth every penny.

“All good, but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

The hotel experience was really good except for one dinner for 10 at Tavola36 where the service was slow (one main course arrived after everyone else had finished theirs) and the main course of our meal was overall a disaster. The rack of lamb ordered by most, medium rare, was raw, and the linguine was so dry as if the chef had forgotten the sauce on both serves.

“Yes, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

The location and the view from the restaurat are great, but food and service could be improved: dishes are for sure tasty even though not fully Italian (you shouldn't taste oil in risotto) and concerning the staff is for sure kind, but sometimes missing (when the wine bucket is far from the table attendants should constantly check to fill customers glass..).
