Book a table on the jetty! Just about as idyllic a dining experience as it's possible to have. Superb staff, great food and not enough superlatives to describe the setting.

This place looked so good, unfortunately didn't live up to its reviews or expectations. Location is amazing at the end of the pier in a perfect location. Service was great initially. We must have chosen the wrong food on our visit. I've never had a stranger experience on quality of food in a nice restaurant. We chose a special 4 course tasting menu and I wouldn't recommend anyone else has this. Starter was scallops, this was actually one scallop thinly sliced in to 3, and coated in thick sesame seeds. So overpowering that you could only taste the sesame. Second was ravioli, taste was ok, presentation was shocking. Main was prawns done in balsamic and strawberries. This was weird and a really heavy taste. Overall pretentious and trying too hard. Wine was the only saving grace. We told waiter what we thought when asked and he didn't do anything to resolve. Still charged full price. At 45 euro plus 8 euro for bread, was poor value. I couldn't recommend.

The ambiance of having the water around you, the mountains in front and behind and soft music makes for a perfect dining experience. Then the food: a very fresh mixed salad, a generous portion of Caprese and the largest Bronzino fish that we have ever shared. The fish was perfectly seasoned and cooked and was accompanied roasted potatoes and sautéed mixed vegetables. Superb! A nice bottle of Vermentino accompanied this meal. We will be back for sure!

Dear LuBabe, thank you so much, we always appreciate good feedback like yours.
Our branzino is a good choice, we cook it in salt crust with hay to have a particular taste! The rest (panorama, lake, mountains...) is a gift of the nature, we are lucky to be here and share it with all our guests!

See you soon in our restaurant!!!

Lovely food but even nicer views from the little jetty in front of the hotel, lovely place to eat and evening meal.

We went to Al Vas last night and we had a great time. We were seated on the pier in the corner with our small dog, and we had a fantastic view across the lake. It was also really nice to watch the fish hanging around below the pier, waiting for a few dropped morsels of food. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive, and the food was delicious. I had the peppery mussels and the ravioli and it was so good, I could probably order the exact same thing a second time. My husband had the tuna tartar and the ostrich. His dishes were also very nice, but the winning dish would have to be the mussels. I think it's safe to say that we'll be back!
