Locanda Barbarossa, Ascona

The gourmet restaurant Locanda Barbarossa is situated in the five star hotel Castello del Sole on the shores of Lago Maggiore. It has 18 GaultMillau points and 1 Michelin star.

My husband and I spent our mini moon at the hotel and granted ourselves a dinner at the fine dining restaurant to celebrate. I’ll let the pictures talk…

Starter: Scallop carpaccio with tomato pesto, seaweed and fish roe. Delicious!


Main course: Lamb rack with gnocchi and zucchinis in a red wine jus. Devine!


Dessert: Crepes with marinated strawberries, Grand-Marnier, Nelly-Melba sauce and rosé Champagne ice-cream. My favourite dish of the dinner!


We couldn’t have wished for a better celebration menu! Apart from the very tasty food, the service staff is very charming. The Locanda Barbarossa is definitely an address to go to when in the Ascona Region.

Price: $$$
