Mars Restaurant

If you're looking for a very good meal at a place where the locals hang out, go to Mars Restaurant in Lake Como. It's five minutes from Lake Geneva and jammed on Fri and Sat nights- YEAR 'ROUND.

A lot of places are busy during the summer -tourist- season, but this restaurant is hopping throughout the year because the food is good, the dress is casual (or fancy, if you like for an evening out), the drinks are strong, and the view of the water is terrific.

You might want to try it at lunch time, if you don't like crowds. You can enjoy the wonderful lake vista and eat a hamburger or a steak, or something in between. Not a huge menu, but standard fare options. Note that the menu is the same at lunch or dinner- no cost savings, but not terribly costly anyway.

Stop by Duffy's on your way out of town for a drink. The fellow who suggested that bar was right on the mark, though I CAN NOT speak for the accomodations at either of these places.

Thanks for the great tip! We go to Lake Geneva often but are tired of the overpriced food (grossly overpriced some places) that we find most of the time. We will definately try Mars on our next trip!

Thanks again, Mark & Maria

We just love this little out of the way & off the beaten path restaurant!

The food is divine and the ambience is equally as divine!

Love it so much here, we're making it our Mothers Day headquarters this year ..2007!!

Hope its going to be a nice day so we can take advantage of the outdoor tables and the view of the lake.

Wondering if the little shack next door will be opened to rent a boat and some waverunners??? Hope so! :-)

See ya there if you're there when I am ;-)

P.S., just called to see if I needed reservations for 9 people and was told that they dont take reservations...it is strictly a first come first served basis restaurant so, dont go there on Mothers Day or any other major Holiday unless you like waiting? :-)
