We booked this restaurant months in advance for our Silver Wedding anniversary dinner, and it did not disappoint. Wow, what a superb evening! The food was divine, and our waitress Stephanie was wonderful. Be aware, it is not a cheap experience. However as the old saying goes, you 'get what you pay for'. We had a fabulous experience and would... More

Olivo is located inside Casino Lucern, but is nothing like any other casino-based restaurant I've been too. these are usually just overpriced and tacky. this one offers Michelin-level dishes and service. had gazpacho for startes, fresh and refreshing, with a side of broscata. Pigeon for main course with duck liver and pate on chickpea bedding. Amazing a desert combination of... More

I have been here and I must say their attention to details is a matter of "extraordinaire", lovely attentive staff with very balanced menu choices. The taste is quite exquisite that you won't find a salt and pepper around to add to your dish. Lovely ambience. Guess if it were summer the view would have been better with longer summer... More

Perhaps that is the standard when having a six-course meal, but some of the course glided from one to another, and then we sat, and we waited, and waited. Not sure if they were just busy, or if that is the custom. The food however, was all excellent, and plated lovely. The staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. I was,... More

We had 7 coarse Dinner and food was amazing, service was also good. I am pretty sure there was more than 7 coarse, some side coarse too. Only downside for all this was time, our dinner last 3-4 hours, way too long there was too much downtime between coarses.

With its impressive views from the large lakeside terrace and its stylish interior Restaurant Olivo is as rewarding as a short break away, whatever the weather. At lunchtime and dinner Chef Hugues Blanchard and his team serve culinary delights inspired by the Mediterranean's light and varied cuisine. The menu features Mediterranean classics with an innovative touch as well as new creations to delight the palate.The wine list is also full of surprises. Besides the finest vintages from the established wine regions around the Mediterranean it also comprises specialities from lesser known regions.
