We didn’t stay here (although very much wished we had!) we instead booked to come for a meal.
The drive up to the hotel is stunning, especially at night when all lit up.
The building itself is very grand and very under occupied. It feels deserted in places with sections cordoned off. But that just seems to make it all the more special.
The restaurant itself is Italian and has seating outside by a small fountain and ambient lighting. A lovely atmosphere is created, a truly special feel to the place.
Excellent as you would expect in an establish such as this and it really didn’t disappoint.
Very well cooked and tasted delicious. My husband ordered the seafood linguine which I did expect to see it presented with all of the extravagant fish on top in their shells for decoration to give the wow factor (like you do elsewhere) but that wasn’t to be the case here. The dish was served looking very plain - but it tasted good!
I had the sea bass and would highly recommend it.
My husband ordered the cheeseboard for desert and I must say, they are yet to master this! It really wasn’t good. A big lump of Parmesan was served as one of the cheese options which was somewhat strange. No crackers, instead there were four small square salad style croutons?? and no grapes. Not what is expected from a cheeseboard and so we left it.
A great selection of drinks. The Gavi di Gavi was particularly good, nice and crisp and light.
We would have liked to have seen a Malbec on the red wine list if we’re being picky!
Overall a lovely evening in stunning surroundings. Well worth a visit.
