Great place if you want to eat near the Port. In general the food is ok, but not amazing and definitely expensive. Desserts were super tasty. Friendly staff, very professional. Probably a good place to eat with your boss or a business partner.

Four close friends enjoyed a wonderful lunch here on a Sunday in early October. The featured ingredient that week was mushrooms and the chef did them justice in a perfect risotto! Impeccable service, beautiful setting. A lovely meal.

Visited this restaurant twice in three months. Consistent quality of food and service. Equally good for a romantic dinner or a business meeting. Try the game or truffle dishes when in season.

Our first time in the country and L'Accademia was recommended to us by a local. The location near the lake was magical and the restaurant was stunning. The food was presented beautifully (see pictures) and the wine choice was quite extensive. The food was super delicious, but the service did mar our experience. It was okay, but staff should have...

We cannot praise this restaurant enough, particularly Marco, who made sure all our needs were met, and even went beyond the call of duty to mark a special day for us! For a person who has an allergy it was heaven to be able to eat out and know that I could have practically the same food as everyone else... More

Another good meal here. The mushroom special was terrific. The lamb chops were a little fatty. In an unusual service slip, the wine wasn't served until the first course was nearly done. Still, a good place.

Great Italian restaurant which is part of the hotel Angleterre. In the morning it serves the excellent breakfast for the hotel guests incl. freshly squeezed orange juice. You can go there for a nice lunch and for a nice dinner as well.

My colleagues and I enjoyed a dinner on the terrace on a beautiful late-summer evening. The food here isn’t bad. But it also isn’t particularly good - especially given the price point. In other words, value for money was quite poor. None of the dishes were memorable and some were not good at all (for example the turbot with fennel... More

I ate one dinner here while staying at Angletterre. Good food and nice presentations. Seafood was tasty and desert luscious!

Perhaps the chef was on a night off but as a group of 5, not one of us could enjoy the food presented. We were staying at the Beau Rivage and they recommended this restaurant. I know it's had good reviews and the place was really busy on a Saturday evening so maybe it was just us but raw pasta... More
