My family skis mostly in Italy; after working our way along the Aosta Valley we took up the recommendation of an Italian friend to try the Dolomites. We researched a variety of ski resorts and settled on San Martino di Castrozza, an inspired choice. But even better was our decision to stay for a week at the excellent Malga Ces... More

We had a few good stops here, for lunch and drinks at various times and in various weather conditions! Outside is lovely in the sun, inside great by the fire when it had closed in. Food and drinks were great and the staff were pleasant. Cheers!

Best restaurant on the slopes in San Martino di Castrozza - but you need to book a table for lunch - it gets incredibly busy. Good kind service, very good food

We recently had lunch at Malga Ces while on a weekend drive through the Dolomites. I targeted this restaurant based on the positive reviews posted here on TripAdvisor. A tad difficult to find with the GPS navigator, we obtained more specific details from local villagers. The setting is to die for; so beautiful and unique, nestled among stoney, pointy mountain...

It' not just a view (one of the best you can find in town), localisation (in the middle of a meadow) and both friendly and really helpful staff. Also the food is great. First one may think they're a typical local menu, but then it turns out it's someting more. Some ingredients are surprising. For example excellent birramisu instead of... More

We had lunch twice in this nice Malga, once in the cozy inside restaurant, once on the nice dressed up outside space. The service is very fast and efficient, there is a fine selection of nice local dishes with daily specials. The top is coming early in the morning, reserve your table, have a nice trekking around and come back... More

Ate at Malga Ces with a large group. The restaurant is on a hill outside of San Martino. We had a very good meal with friendly service. We arrived early (i.e. 7:30 or so), so the restaurant was not very crowded. But it filled up quickly thereafter. It looks like one of the regular ski lodges that you see all... More

this "malga" is in fact a nice restaurant in a typical chalet type of the dolomites. it has an extraordinary view on the "Pale" (mountain range) of San Martino with spires and cliffs rising into the sky. you sit outside weather permitting. otherwise, the restaurant inside is pretty, warm and cosy. The staff is very friendly and the food is... More

We stayed there for 1 week and were delighted with Malga Ces. This family-owned hotel has picturesque mountain location and direct access to ski slopes. Staff were super friendly and could not do enough for us. The room was clean, warm and comfortable with all the facilities. The owners were always on hand to give advice and arrange frees shuttles...
