Our car was parked at the other end of the bay and we determined to walk the whole way round to where we saw a huge water fountain spouting out of the lake like the one in Geneva.It was further than we expected and were not going to fail to reach our goal. Lunch was going to be our reward. At the end we came to some steps leading down to a waterside bar where we asked if they were serving lunch there. Little were we to know we had come to the Hotel Eden. The waiter lead us up another set of step which, do excuse me but the poet in me can't resist, I can only describe as 'a stairway to heaven'. Here was a picturesque setting of linen clothed tables set on a shaded deck overlooking the whole bay. We were able to take the one right up front and center. The staff were very traditional, a profession of which Italy must surely be very proud. We quickly realized this was going to be a five star experience. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We chose the local pikeperch fish dish, quite easily the best fish to date. Most likely just caught from the fish farms on the lake in front of us which we had stoppe to read about. Extensive wine list but for lunch a light Sauvignon blanc was perfect. Jr waiter under close supervision from Sr waiter served us perfect coffee after it was quickly spotted that fresh milk was needed! Thank you Oasis, for a lunch we'll fondly remember.
