“So good, we went back...twice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

I'm kind of embarrassed to admit this, but we ate at Seven Asia three times out of the six nights we spent in Ascona. We've been a little starved for decent sushi of late and once we landed at Seven Asia, we got a little crazy. The tempura rolls were actually quite delicious and, as we watched the sushi chef artfully prepare a special assortment, we couldn't help but wish that it was the one we ordered. It was - and it was fabulous. Seven Asia offers most of what you want in a sushi restaurant: Very fresh fish, pretty presentation and fun flavors. Service was average and our green tea and coconut ice creams were served a bit melted, but that didn't stop us from going back. Twice.

“Pricey, but OK, and not just pasta, bread, and cheese.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

They have a decent selection, but don't expect world-class fish. They have to make do with what they can get for ingredients. But, it was a nice deviation from pasta, cheese, bread, etc. The staff were nice, and the service excellent. 180 CHF for two for a large'ish dinner with drinks.

“not as good as on paper...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012

went there for dinner with high expectations....restaurant is very very nicely designed, service is average and the food does not stand up for a good Japanese (poor quality and selection of fish; tempura was poorely prepared) and if you then consider the price...next time will go there only for coffee....
