Absolutely brilliant we dined here after being tired of Japanese food on a 3 week trip accross the country and it did not disappoint. The grill meats and fish and accompanying salads and vegetables was very good. Would highly recommend.

Staying at Swissôtel and decided to have a meal at Tavola36. After having Japanese for the past 3 weeks needed something different and opted for Tavola36 as it stated that is was a Mediterranean restaurant and it did not disappoint.

Loved our meals, I had the grilled salmon with seasonal vegetables and opted for the chilli and lemon sauce which was absolutely delicious.

My husband had the grilled chicken with a soy sauce which was equally as delicious.

Just wonderful with a amazing view of Osaka from the 36th floor just what we needed in japan.

Would highly recommend.

Came here on the last night of our stay at the hotel for a quiet relaxing evening away from the city and for a change from Japanese food. Tables were all set up for the views. Menu is European and offers set course options, salad bar, pastas and pizzas as well as usual a la carte choices. Lots of drinks choices. Quality pretty good overall although fish was over cooked. Definitely on pricier side but to be expected in a hotel like this. Service started off well and then dwindled as the restaurant got busier and felt like more attention paid to the locals. Good Gluten free options.

Because of the view, we chose to come up to have a nice drink with a beautiful view....
After ordering two drinks, we had our drinks we 3 olives and some peanuts.. like very few of them.... we asked for some more.. we were told that it would come at additional cost!!... ok very cheap coming from this type of hotel but let’s go for it.. we order two additional drinks but this time no peanuts came with the drinks... so maybe it’s a bit stingy to expect something to come with your drink but really given the price of the drinks you would expect much much much better.... so disappointed!

Ultimately the food was very good, if over-priced, but the process includes a fixed set of included appetizer and main courses with "upgrade" options. Appetizers and desserts are served buffet style. They views over the city are spectacular, but you pay for them.
