If you want to treat yourself to an intimate, delicious dining experience, make this a must go in the Lake Maggiore area. The food was terrific, with a great wine selection, and prompt, kind service.

We spent an afternoon at this trendy spot with shimmering views of the moorings on Lake Maggiore. Hypnotic music, excellent service and early evening nibbles kept us glued to our seats. Oh yes - not to forget the fine, misting spray that dissipated the heat of the day. It's just as popular by night when it takes on a new... More

We wanted to try Seven again now that Ivo Adam has left the cooking helm. The breath-taking view is a show stopper as always. The menu has changed and one of the most interesting offerings is meat or fish prepared using an innovative contraption that is a cross between a grill and an oven. We tried both beef and dover...

We (a party of 5) had lunch at Seven and it was excellent. We had a large round table facing the promenade (near the cool mist jets). Our servers were attentive and the food was excellent. I highly recommend the risotto.

The food and service were incredible. Prices seemed high but worth it with the view. The salad looked plain but the taste was amazing. Dressed perfectly.

Not to be confused with Seven Sea Lounge, this is Seven. A restaurant that used to have a Michelin star. We arrived without a reservation, and that was fine. Although we did not get a 'front row' table, we were given an acceptable table. The waitress was not especially friendly. I ordered a beer & asked for tap water. No... More

I visited the restaurant with few friends last night. The food from the 5-course tasting menu was good. However, I must say that I have never experienced such a bad service,especially since it's a Michelin restaurant. Took around 1 hour until the first course arrived plus no one took our jackets nor said goodbye when we left.

This is my fifth time at Seven, but I was disappointed. We ordered the surprise menu with wine pairing. The menu was ok, but the pork fillet was really not tender. The main disappointment was the wine pairing which felt like they want to get rid of some bottles. Also the service was super slow.

The Seven in Ascona lies at the end of the lake promenade with a nice view on the other restaurants. You better make a reservation, the restaurant is not big and often fully booked. The interior is very stylish. Among others, you are able to watch the chefs through windows in the eating area. The cellar area including the restrooms... More

Open year-round (weather permitting), this is one of the best spots in Ascona to have an 'aperitivo'. We are frequent visitors and, on this particular visit, we enjoyed a delicious 'vin brulee'. During the summer months, a water mist cooling system keeps everyone comfortable on the sunny terrace. A great place to unwind, relax and drink in the spectacular view.
