    Seven Easy

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is my favourite place in Ascona to have a take-away ice cream. Two scoops in a waffer cone or a little container cost CHF 6.00 (May 2009). I had mocca and fiore di latte which was delicious. They make their ice cream themselves.

    The place itself looks very popular as it was full and there was a relaxed atmosphere.

    Each time I go to Ascona I have an ice cream :))

    Address: Piazza G. Motta 61

    Directions: Right on the promenade by the lake.

    Grotto Baldoria: One of the best meals of my life

    by Parsley27 Written Aug 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is no menu - you just eat whatever they're cooking that night. It's all local produce, freshly prepared. I can't remember how many courses we had, but there was cheese and salami, chicken, pasta, meat and others. All the wine was local, poured into spare bottles from a large barrel in the corner. The staff were very friendly and did their utmost to ensure we had a great meal.

    Address: Vicolo S.Omobono 9 6612 Ascona

    Directions: Not far from the water front.

    The main restaurant in Hotel Tamaro: Yes...its expensive

    by evancheong Written Jan 2, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The main reason for dinning at Hotel Tamaro was because I wanted to catch a live jazz band playing over brunch. Personally I find it was very expensive given it was a buffet but the spread was very limited. For the price you pay, it wasn't value for money. But the band was good hence I took it as paying "extra" for the live music.

    Favorite Dish: No special dish but the service was very good. Mainly from foreign interns studying Hotel Management in Switzerland.
    Moreover the ambience was nice. It felt like having brunch in a garden.

    Address: Piazza G. Motta 35, CH - 6612 Ascona

    Directions: Its situated along the lake where you can find all the hotels and restaurants.
