Dear guest, we are very sorry to read a review of this type, it seems only malice towards us. We know that ours is an unusual cuisine, the tastes are difficult and the philosophy must be understood well, it is impossible to please everyone. It's...More

We dined twice at El Molin in our 9-day stay in Cavalese. Each night the food, wine and service were wonderful. Wait staff were very knowledgeable and pleasant. Atmosphere comfortable and warm. I highly recommend El Molin.

Dear guests, our restaurant is a gourmet restaurant which aims to offer a complete culinary tour. If you will come over again we will welcome you at the El Molin Wine Bar, exactly nearby, where the courses are more substantial. Thank you, Best regards.
