Friendly bar and owners. Enjoyed two nights here on a recent stay in Lake Como. Cracking aperol spritz. Lovely location as well. Didn't eat here so can comment on that. It was a nice place to relax, take in the views and watch the euros with the locals too.

A good place that is run by a really nice couple. Good for a coffee, cake or sandwich. They do meals but we did not eat there. Good place to chill out.

Dropped in several times for a drink, either on our way out, or on our way home (including one night when we were marooned there by a thunder storm). Also had lunch here one day. Friendly staff - who were happy to chat to customers - made us feel very welcome.

The dining experience is quite special at Iron gate. The views are spectacular and the food is good. The service is fine but really the experience of good food is exceeded by the ambiance created by the views.

We enjoyed good coffee and great cake here. The staff were very friendly. The outlook over the lake is beautiful. Short stroll to the boat stop.

With exceptional views of Lake Como this place is terrific. Relaxed and casual with a great selection of drinks and simple good food, all at the right price. Family run business that gets it just right!
