Have had several pleasant visits to Surfer's Grill in Torbole over the years: good food and nice staff. However, our most recent visit with a group of friends was a disappointment. Sloppy timing of delivery as side dishes to main courses arrived randomly and before the entrees. Meat ordered medium was delivered rare (and merely put back on the grill... More

Right off the back i just have to say that this place is one of the best places I've eaten in the world, never mind Garda. I have eaten T-bone steaks in London and New York's finest restaurants and it matches those! We were warmly greeted by who I believe to be the owner. She was pleasant and humoured me... More

We hadn't booked and would probably recommend doing so. There was a large party in the night of our visit so we did have a bit of a wait for our order to be taken. However, once taken delivery of our food was swift and was worth the wait. We had a variety of pasta dishes and meat dishes which... More

Cheese plate, pasta & fish portions, tiramisu & pistachio pannacotta, local red and white wine. Excellent, tasteful, well prepared portions. Very professional, kind and attentive service.

Good food with nice garden. The name is a bit misleading. An Italian name would be more appropriate. We took my mum there for her birthday. We had steak, pasta, fish, gamberonis, lasagne, salmon pasta and wine. As starters caprese and beef carpaccio. For desert crema catalana. Beer and wine. 4 and 1/2 persons 150€ for a very decent dinner... More

The food was outstanding and the staff were both polite and well versed in how to keep their clients happy. The Surfer's Grill comes highly recommended for its great meat dishes and fresh... More

I dined here for 1 night in September 2015. I did not have a starter I elected to have the T-bone steak which I had in florida and it was delicious.

Service was great, friendly staff and we even got bruscettas on the house. Atmosphere was great. We had the mix of pastas for firsts - really tasty, and a huge dish. Then we had the fillet which was amazing, and fish which was actually not very good. For desert we had the lemon sorbet - perfect!
