Our first visit to Lake Garda, and Esplanade looked to be a restaurant worth visiting. Fantastic! We booked for dinner. From the minute we walked in we were made to feel very welcome. The food was excellent. Everything was very fresh and perfectly cooked. There...More

Stopped off here for lunch. Restaurant has the choice of indoor and outdoor seating in busy or quiet areas. The vegetable open sandwich came with Marie sauce and was spot on - as was the house white wine and beer. Good service too.

We cannot add much to the dialog, as our experience matches that of most others. We can only reiterate: the setting is fantastic, the food is wonderful, the service outstanding. We will come back next time we are visiting Garda.

As it was my birthday, we decided to come here and have the tasting menu. This consists of 8 courses plus an amuse bouche, so it's quite an experience. I could actually have done without the "pre-dessert" of tiny patisserie, but all the other courses...More
