“We loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

This was one of our favourite places to eat on our recent holiday near Bardolino - we visited 3 times and were never disappointed. Yes, it's alongside the pool on the Arca complex but it's a lovely outlook and you're quite high above Garda so there's a feeling of having escaped the crowds in the town to get some welcome air away from the intense heat closer to the lake. The service is great, the owners are extremely friendly and welcoming and the food is very good. To sum up ....... great, relaxing atmosphere. first class service, superb music, fabulous outlook and really enjoyable food! Keep it up! I hope we'll be back!

“Good, but not the best.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

First of all I have to say, this restaurant is good and I recommend to eat here for everyone. However, there is a better one in Bardolino.
The meal is perfect here, big portions, fair price. The only downward for me (attention, only for me!!!) is the ambiente, you are sitting by the pool with the view on plastic sunbeds.
But the overlooking view is nice, directly on the lake.
Service is also very nice and helpfull.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

We (my wife, youngest daughter and myself) visited this restaurant 3 times during our stay at Garda and we just loved it. The location is wonderful, but don't rely on your GPS as some of the possible roads to get there are not very accessible by car. Best way to get there is by taking the road along the lake between Garda and Bardolino, but make sure you don't miss the small little road leading towards the restaurant (coming from Bardolino, to the right, there is a sign with the name of the restaurant on it). Once you get there, the atmosphere is fantastic. All tables are situated around the swimming pool with a lovely view on the lake. Food and service are very good, not Michelin star quality but when on vacation, this is the kind of place you are looking for!

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

The restaurant at Arca is probably one of the best I've come across in the area. Kerstin & Beril have worked hard to improve on the previous owners & the menu is fabulous. It has a great selection & the portions are huge.
Worth trying are the Fish Soup served in a loaf of bread, the duck in a sour onion sauce - I could go but you just have to try it - the service is great, Kerstin runs the front of house with Alessandro & Oscar
Can't fault it & the vino locale is wonderful

“Excellent in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

The Ristor Arca is located in the Arca Apartments complex, just up the hill from Bardolino on Lake Garda.

A group of friends and I ate here many times as we were staying in these apartments, so we had a good sample of breakfasts, lunch and evening meals. The breakfasts and lunch were always plentiful and good value, and everything our group tried ranging from salads to pasta dishes were all excellent.

The owners of the restaurant were always very accommodating and courteous and were both really friendly and good to chat with, always making us feel welcome and relaxed.
Their recommendation of a local wine cocktail called a 'Chiari' made our holiday - this is surely the most refreshing drink on the planet?! You MUST try one whilst in Bardolino!

Our final night in Bardolino we decided to have our evening meal in the restaurant, inviting some friends who were staying in one of the other hotels over to join us. The restaurant was very busy and therefore the food took a little while to arrive but when it did my Lord was it worth it! Across the table we had pasta, steaks, lamb cutlets and a huge grilled seafood platter and each and every mouthful of these meals was beautiful, the best we had whilst in Italy. Add to this beautiful German beer, Italian wine cocktails and a local 48% proof spirits and needless to say we all had an absolutely awesome night.

Simply fantastic, thank you so much for your hospitality!
