The Fassano restaurant has just been refurbished after 2 years of being closed . From an architectonical and interior decorate point of view it is a master piece . Sadly the kitchen is by far NOT up to the standards of the Hotel and the investment poured into it . The most renown dish the famous very elaborated cooked lamb... More

The architecture and setting are nothing short of spectacular. Service is impeccable. The price/quality ratio was disastrous. I don't mind spending $60 for an entree, but it HAS to Wow me. It did not. I ordered the lamb which was highly recommended and was utterly disappointed. For dessert I ordered the tiramisu and it was good. Two others ordered the... More

An amazing place! The architectural setting is outstanding, the service is perfect, and the food is excellent too! An interesting menu with many options. It is absolutely worth the drive, which is actually just 10 minutes from the heart of La Barra!

We have eaten at Fasano many times since the hotel opened as the setting, views and decor of the restaurant are outstanding. Yesterday however we had a truly disappointing experience and will not return. Appetizers cost $30-40 while entrees are in the $60-70 range. At this price level you expect outstanding service anywhere in the world, especially on a day... More

Superb restaurant. Food is delicious, service is extraordinary and the place is beautiful. I had salmon tartare and "milanesa". Before you order the waiter keeps coming with bread and a delicious paté. You never have to ask for more bread or wine because the waiters are constantly keeping an eye on you. It is considered a cool place in Punta... More

Food was mediocre, came home with nasty mosquito bites AND the valet stole my sunglasses. The manager accused me of lying and yelled at me for making accusations of theft. Never been treated this poorly. Stay away.

There is nothing to dislike about this restaurant. But if you are not accustomed to staying up late, take a nap before going so that you can do adequate people watching.
