Description: The restaurants Ecco in Ascona, St. Moritz and Zürich are renowned for characterful mixtures of virtuosity and taste purism. Executive Chef Rolf Fliegauf cleverly combines natural flavours of seasonal ingredients and creates the unmistakable and multiple award-winning aroma cuisine of Ecco: pointedly, intense, unexpected.

We often dine at michelin starred restaurants, and we really love the ecco in ascona. All dishes with no exception really blow you away. If any critique than maybe that the interior is a bit dated – but you got to love the 90s italian style.

Restaurant Ecco Ascona is a two Michelin stars restaurant in Ascona and it is a well deserved two stars. The decor is simple but elegant. Beautiful room with golden chandeliers. Service was top notch and attentive. The pace of serving flowed smoothly. Food was delicious although it still lacked the wow effect. Some were on the salty side. You have a choice of two set menus; vegetarian and non-vegetarian. A flurry of amuse bouches and small plates which are all done with perfection. The focus is on local sourcing were possible. The combination of flavours, ingredients and presentation make a great dining experience. The portions were generous. Chef Rolf Fliegauf is a culinary master.

We have been here for dinner and we have made a very disappointing experience. Taste, service and price is not balanced at all. A sommelier was missing, the (German) staff had no idea about the region and the respective wines.
The menu was written like general terms of a business contract. Below in small letters what is not possible to choose - unbelievable.
Two choices were offered for the main course - the second with a 45 CHF surcharge. This is the wagyu beef but the 50 Gramm you get finally on the plate does not justify the surcharge at all. The chef explained to me his cost and calculation and how he explained it to me it is only n additional 25 CHF extra profit for the restaurant.
Very disappointing and totally overpriced. The promise given on the web page are not provided finally on your plates.

Unable to walk to the town we had all our meals for 4 days at the Ascona Hotel restaurant. Every meal was just perfect. Nothing "strange" as on some of our trips. Service perfectly fine.
