This is a beautiful historic looking restaurant in a large, ornate room of a hotel and casino. The food was excellent but the service was extremely slow. We ordered only 2 courses but we had to wait almost an hour between our first course and our main course. The staff was very, very nice and apologetic, but out of frustration,... More

Location is great, 1st floor of Grand Casino with terrace overlooking Lake Lucerne. Staff were lovely, spoke very good English despite their modesty. Had decorated table with Birthday confetti which my partner loved. Restaurant is lovely and elegant with large chandeliers.... More

We walked by the restaurant and almost did not eat here because it looked too upscale. We wanted something good and fun, this place had white table clothes and looked like a couples (DATE) location. I am glad we decided to stay and eat here! We had the scallops atop of salmon…it was incredible.

Description
With its impressive views from the large lakeside terrace and its stylish interior Restaurant Olivo is as rewarding as a short break away, whatever the weather. At lunchtime and dinner Chef Hugues Blanchard and his team serve culinary delights inspired by the Mediterranean's light and varied cuisine. The menu features Mediterranean classics with an innovative touch as well as new creations to delight the palate.The wine list is also full of surprises. Besides the finest vintages from the established wine regions around the Mediterranean it also comprises specialities from lesser known regions.
