Definitely a recommendation! The waiter was very kind and helpfull (advising about the ingredients a pregnant woman can eat)! The food was delicious (we had a vegetable risotto and a fish risotto and as desert a tiramisu). As a welcome we received a prosecco from the house and a ricotta toast. You don't pay couvert (as in most of the restaurants). So the price-quality rare is good!

On our visit to Abano Terme we visited Balthazar (Apeticena & ristorante) after reading the great reviews they have on Tripadvisor. And we were not disappointed! They have a very nice menu and besides that you get some dishes explained by the staff. And as our Italian is not that good (and probably more tourists have that problem) the staff has written down versions of their daily extra's so they can explain the dishes and the ingredients in f.i. German. For their various dishes they prefer regional ingredients and they serve some excellent (regional) wines for a very nice price. And before you start the dinner you get a wonderful amuse (appetizer) which tastes as good as it looks. Because of our wonderful experience during our first visit we went again on our last evening in Abano Terme but we were 30 minutes before opening. The staff was having a meal themselves but they welcomed us and sat us in the 'lounge-corner' were we got some aperitif on the house. Which summons their attitude towards guests: guests come first. Added to the quality of the food they deliver probably makes them the best restaurant in Abano Terme (We didn't visit all the restaurants there......).

loved the food and the service. The owner was always ready to suggest local food and drinks and the desserts were to-die-for. I would suggest the semifreddo and the tiramisu and the risotto all 'ortica

A great find (thanks to Tripadvisor). Food was great. Small but good range of meat, fish, and pasta. Service was exceptional. There was even some great 80s music playing discreetly in the background!!
