For non-Italians a 5 course meal is too much. After the pasta dish, the 3rd course, we were full and not able to eat much more. We didn't always know what kind of meat we were eating from the chef's appetiser, alot of smoked meats which isn't to our taste but perhaps other people would love it.

Dear guest,

thanks for your review, but honestly we do not understand what you did not like ..
Maybe we had to give you less than the 5 courses included for all our guests in half board?
All the courses offered to our guests are marked on our menu, and we do not understand why you are not able to identify the type of meat you're eating.

If you thought that the menu was not clear enough, you could contact our staff that surely you would provide all the necessary information

In summary, we are sorry that you did not like our food, but we believe that it is just your own personal taste.

Thanks anyway for your visit and we hope that there will be another chance to change your opinion

best Regards

Best bits-food is beautifully presented, well cooked and al fresco dining was magical. Staff polite, attentive and smiled. As non residents of the hotel (Hotel Caesius Thermae SPA Via Peschiera 3 | Lago di Garda Verona, 37011 Bardolino, Italy) we were greeted by the charismatic restaurant manager and shown around the hotel. He was interested in how we had found hotel and that we were staying at the rival Color hotel up the road. We were first given a complimentary prosecco before ordering our food.
The food was interesting - my Tuna starter was deep fried which was unexpected and although tasted good was a little disappointing. My wife had calamari which was not deep fried - I thought we had the wrong starters at first. Hers was perfect. Main courses of veal and beef fillet were cooked to perfection (my fillet was rare, tasty with a tiny bit of gristle). We shared a great bottle of reasonably priced (€21) red wine and creme brûlée with pistachio - amazing taste. Coffee was served with some chocolates served on a large rock!
Compared to food at Color Hotel it wasn't quite as good however the ambiance was better, the staff as good, the wine cheaper and overall cost cheaper at €113 for a couple. My wife rates this a 5 and I rate it a 4 based on our individual meals. Go see for yourselves but you won't see a sign for the restaurant so contact hotel and make a reservation.
