Description: The restaurant philosophy is simple and straight forward: «fresh, uncomplicated and good». We use exclusively fresh products like cheese from the neighbouring alps, locally produced spirits and meats from local farmers. The menus offered depend on the season, our guests desire as well as the daily changing mood of your host and chef, making it clear: «we serve what we have». Please note that dinner is served in the restaurant from Wednesday to Saturday, lunch is served Sundays. Because the restaurant is rather small, table reservations are essential. Room reservations do not automatically include a table reservation.

Stayed at the hotel / guest house for four nights and only discovered the talents of the owners (a Chef) on the last night. Daniel makes his own cured meats, locally caught venison, and uses extensive local produce in his cooking. We had a dinner for five which was a mini-degustation menu, with lots of little extras and surprises. The warmth and friendliness of the venue mixed with innovative and exciting food were a real treat.

Everything is most wonderful about this hotel. The service, the rooms and the restaurant could not be better. If you like a family atmosphere where the owners actively run the show, then this is your hotel. And the restaurant, this is a dining experience not to be missed!

Having lunch on the terrace is quite an experience on a sunny day, gorgeous view, good selection of food. Dinner in the restaurant beats that experience, especially the selection of meat right done on a lava stone in front of the guest is an experience you should not miss. Portions are generous, quality is indisputable.

Set menu with a choice of two or three course menu + dessert. Great choice of wines and spirits as well as a wonderful assortment of tea.
The service is wonderful and staff made a great effort to translate everything into English for us. A lot of thought has been put into little details that make the experience out of the ordinary such as a "postcard course" (curious as to what it is? go find out ;)
Would recommend this experience thoroughly.

We arrived to be shown where to park by a a very nice boy standing outside awaiting arrivals and met our very relaxed and easy to chat to chef and owner who escorted us up to the lower room where we were offered pre dinner drinks. The lower bar/shop where drinks are offered has a lovely range of home made specialties and other items. We served ourselves some special local ham on a large impressive standing machine for guests to use for slicing and enjoyed the olive oil with bread and a fig mustard marmelade that was very good. I had to buy some of the homemade muesli before I left. We then went upstairs to the restaurant where we spoke more with the owners and ordered our menu for lunch. The views were lovely out over the lake from the wood paneled dining area.They serve different things depending on what is good in the local markets and tell you about what is available without a menu. We were served a veal and herb spread with bread to start off with followed by an exceptionally full flavoured and excellent vegetable soup. The choices are for as many courses as you like and the relaxed environment meant that you could take your time in deciding as you went along. I had the homemade ravioli of asparagus with a creamy vegetable asparagus sauce which was delicious and my husband had the three meats cooked perfectly over asparagus and vegetables with truffle potatoes which was wonderful. We were too full to try a cheese plate of the many special cheeses served on a large cheese trolley or the dessert! We did have a selection of the specially made small biscuit selection served with coffee with a nutty macaroon and many others to choose from. It was all a real treat and we were given a grand tour of the hotel rooms which looked lovely all decorated in white tastefully with baths on feet in the rooms. It would be a real treat to come and stay and maybe next time could even try the cheese platter and desserts!
