We bought the breakfast separate from the room accommodation. Some days we have breakfast in tavola and some days outside to discover. On the 2 days we had breakfast, I noticed the menu did not change much. But there was abundance of different kinds of bread, fruits, fresh fruit juices, power drinks among others. Cold salad and appies abound too... More

We dined in the Tavola 36 restaurant upon our stay at Swissotel Nankai Osaka. The breakfast buffet, both in Japanese and American styled, was quite delicious. You can even play with the Ramen by cooking it and adding extra small bits to it. The service was so so in this restaurant. The waiters do not really get our drinks ordered... More

Wide spaces, tables not too close together which is nice I'm not a big eater and if the breakfast buffet has eggs, bacon, sausages and bread, that's already good in my book :) You can easily communicate with the staff in English. Very convenient

The breakfast buffet is both Western and Japanese and has an outstanding variety of food. There are chefs cooking right on the spot so many of the dishes are fresh to the minute. All are tasty and plentiful and contain fruits, vegetables, eggs, meats, pastries, etc.
