The restaurant itself is lovely, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the food was delicious! They have a weekly vegan menu that constantly changes and that features seasonal ingredients. Raw vegan cakes were on point. I would definitely go there again :D

I was alone on business in Lugano and wanted to have a casual, good vegan dinner where I didn't feel uncomfortable eating alone. Bee did not disappoint. The vegan pizza and chocolate cake were amazing and not that expensive by Swiss standards. However, I tried...More

Surrounded by huge buildings, close to the Liceo di Lugano, is a little corner of paradise for everyone. Bee Mauri Restaurant, with its plants and its enchanting atmosphere, seems to have escaped from one of the many novels. A serene and peaceful place whose philosophy lies in serving dishes that infuse joy with color that have the pleasure of tasting them. Bee Mauri believes deeply in the idea that food connects people, that is the foundation of happiness and, after having tried their food, we can not disagree. Healthy and natural, the appearance of this place is reflected by local ingredients and chosen respecting the environment. Every second week you may find a different vegan menu or choose from delicious dishes prepared with love. This restaurant is perfect for all those times you need to get away from a stressful surrounding without leaving the city center.
