This summaries the experience made. Very few food items to select from. While the quality is good - all in all it is simply not worth the bother. Mixes between Gourmet (long wait) and would-like-to-be-trendy (pricing)

Dear Geneva2009, But your way of describing your experience is very special. It's is the 3rd comment you are writing regarding they short stay you had in our hotel. Your way doing this is unfair, and, again, the threats you have proliferated to our staff during your stay unnecessary and against the terms of use of TripAdvisor. --- To the... More

Besides the main restaurant,the Mediterranean restaurant of the hotel gives you an enjoyable alternative to dine if you booked half-board. Our hosts of the night,Julia and Selina,took their time to guide us through the different courses and did a great job!

Dinned in this cosy restaurant in March, Great veal dish, average pasta, very friendly and welcoming service. Overall good, with a particular emphasis on the local grilled veal; nice wine list. Not ecstatic about this restaurant but makes for a pleasant night out Cp & Cp Family

Half board includes is a 15-course meal. We chose 3 entrees, 2 main courses and cheese-buffet, then we were widely served. But one can of course order all 15 courses, if you manage. We didn't. The entrees were tiny, more like amuse-bouche, but we could have had 3 more or supplement. The main course was not huge but ok and... More

Classic Mediterranean cuisine restaurant in all senses. Perfect place for couples but also works for families if no small children IMHO. High season you better make at least 48hr reservation. But it worth.

The restaurant "Oh de vie" deserves an excellent review because it is truly fantastic! Not only speaking of the food and the wine, but also because of its relaxing and fine atmosphere. The light was dimmed and a lot of candles brought an almost romantic ambiente. I was there with a friend for dinner and we had a lovely evening.The... More

It took a little bit of finding but we eventually made it up to this lovely restaurant just before the clouds descended and obscured the view. Service was great and the food was simple but tasty. The sharing platter is a great dish to revive you after a morning walking and together with a cold beer there is nothing better.
