Wide spaces, tables not too close together which is nice I'm not a big eater and if the breakfast buffet has eggs, bacon, sausages and bread, that's already good in my book :) You can easily communicate with the staff in English. Very convenient

Tavola 36 offers a great panoramic view of Osaka City. Their breakfast buffet spread is quite nice and what I did enjoy the most was their varieties of beverages. All for wellness and they even have unlimited yakult!!!

The choices were excellent. Too bad we were always in a hurry as we either had to leave early or would wake up very late. the view is fantastic from this floor so try to get a table by the window.

The breakfast buffet is both Western and Japanese and has an outstanding variety of food. There are chefs cooking right on the spot so many of the dishes are fresh to the minute. All are tasty and plentiful and contain fruits, vegetables, eggs, meats, pastries, etc.

Amazing view, great cocktails, however wine and general prices are just crazy expensive for the quality. $9US for a cup of black tea....... Deserts were poor cheap quality, very bland.

If you are ever in the Osaka Namba area and are looking for an amazing AYCE Italian Buffet, look no further than going to Tavola36 high atop the Swissotel with a million dollar view and amazing food to boot.

This restaurant on the 36th floor of the Swissotel is the hotel's breakfast bar in the morning, and becomes an Italian restaurant later in the day. The views are splendid, though Osaka is not exactly a photogenic city. The food is reasonable but not outstanding. The atmosphere is what you'd expect at a rooftop hotel restaurant. The portions are small,... More
