Lovely meals both dinner and breakfast. For dinner, was surprised with portions but at the end I wasn't hungry. Had stuffed sole & Branzino. Both well prepared and presented. Very pleasant tasting. For starters-- had zucchini flower stuffed, and the other barrata w/tomato & prawns (heated). Ample room for desert - a desert tray came over - we had fruit... More

Our dinner was included in our tour package so we could order whatever we wanted from the menu. My appetizer was zucchini and stuffed mushrooms. For my main course I ordered suckling pig, a nice tender piece of pork service along with small roasted potatoes and diced vegetables. It was really good. For dessert, I ordered apple strudel and whipped... More

Excellent and wonderful decor, piano music, very professional and friendly staff, good, although expensive, list of wines, rich and savoury food, though not surprising. A very nice experience for a luxurious hotel restaurant. And if you are lucky enough to get one of the window tables, what a view from lake lugano!

While staying at the hotel we ate here with a group which is usually the kiss of death for an enjoyable experience. Not this time. The setting is extremely impressive with old style tall ceilings, romantic views over the lake and appropriate furnishings. My wife and I had capresse salad, fresh pasta with fish sauce, veal, sea bass, and raspberry... More

We were not hungry enough for a full menu and were pleased to be able to choose just a pasta dish with asparagus and prawns, an item on a full menu list. We were brought all sorts of delicious and beautifully presented "amuse bouche" and they plied us with all sorts of extra delights including an after dinner drink with... More

Excellent view of the lake, especially if you have a window table. Kind service but rather slow. Food quite good by hotel standards.

The summer special of Middle Eastern food is the best. The selected chefs are very good. This yesr's was an Egyptian with slightly different ideas but Sami from Lebanon 2014 was excellent. Friends and I returned many times.

A real disappointment. The restaurant service was slow even by Southern European standards. The food was mediocre and the prices exorbitant. You can find much better and hopefully avoid the other patrons who not only got frustrated by the slow service but also vented their ire very loudly which destroyed even the ambience

Eat in style with impeccable service. Menus combines local fare with traditional. Pastas are home made. Salads fresh and well dressed. Delightful dining room. Fish was fresh. Vegetables cooked to perfection. Wines a bit on the pricy side but nice selection of European wines. Desserts are to die for, nothing low cal😊 A true dining experience that is to be... More
