The Lago restaurant

No-limits dining

The creations of the Lago restaurant are as fresh and light as the hotel itself and its surroundings. They are influenced by the close proximity to Italy but are nevertheless entirely in tune with modern trends. Andreas Marquardt, Executive Chef at the Lago restaurant, caters exclusively to the needs of his guests – his vegan and vegetarian dishes are just as delicious as those with fish and meat. The culinary possibilities know no boundaries at the Lago restaurant. The same is true of the restaurant itself – a space that is flooded with light and blends seamlessly into the large lakeside terrace. Or the cosmopolitan Roof Lounge with its stunning vistas. Guests won’t be able to get enough of the view.

In 2019, Restaurant Lago received a  «Bib Gourmand» from Guide Michelin.

The restaurants at Giardino Ascona

Award-winning cuisine and casual dining

The restaurants at Giardino Ascona are innovative and sometimes progressive. The culinary delights are developed on an ongoing basis but never lose their ties to the region. The hotel features two different restaurants: Ecco Ascona of Executive Chef Rolf Fliegauf has been awarded 2 Michelin stars and 17 Gault Millau points. The cuisine of the Hide & Seek restaurant is inspired by Ayurveda and is therefore not only especially tantalising for your taste buds, but also beneficial for your sense of well-being.
