The restaurant is set in the garden of a small auberge. We were offered a free apperitivo when we arrived, and the waiter brought a small table for my camera and things. The food was very good, and the experience great!

I read review on here and decided to visit as it sounded fantastic. Indeed the garden area was amazing and we looked forward to al fresco dining over looking the lake. On arrival were given a complimentary pink fizz and waiters seemed ok. However we were very dissapointed with the food. My steak was cold in the middle and barely... More

Such a shame !!! I was excited to go here but ended up being a little disappointed.. The location is basically unbeatable .. The house white was tasty and the welcome drinks were a nice touch. Unfortunately the food was just very average. Maybe I'm being harsh but it's not the first time the food has been disappointing at Lago... More

We have just had dinner at La Ripa. The setting is lovely with views over the lake. The two waiters had a lot to do, but still time to talk and joke. The food was fresh and attractively arranged - and the price quite reasonable for a full meal with wine and coffee.

We plummeted from our high hopes on the rocks of bad service and arrogance. The location is beautiful, romantic, faultless. Everyone arrived at once so it was a while before the waiter graced us with his presence but that was fine given the view. The food didn't take long. My daughter's prawn pasta was excellent my fish good but the... More

The restaurant is located in a private, lakeside garden behind the hotel and is very peaceful and relaxing. The house red was good and I enjoyed the gnocchi but my friend wished there was more local fresh fish in her mixed fried seafood.

I liked the food, the service was kind and polite, the view and the sound of the lake were nice. I recommend it.

Came here for lunch on a day trip from Brig Switzerland via Simplon pass. The whole droving experience through the Alps was amazing. But the restaurant right on the lake major is a magnificent place. The views alone is worth 5 star rating. But the food and service are also amazing. Can't fault this in any way and thoroughly recommended

Visited while on holiday with my family. The food was very good and service good. Maybe a little pricey for what you get but overall I couldn't really fault the place. We had fish from the lake all cooked to perfection and very tasty. 9/10, well worth a try would be even better if their prices were 10 - 15%... More
