Reviewed 9 August 2017 via mobile

While walking around beautiful Varenna this Hotel and Restaurant is a few steps away from the hustle and bustle of the main "beach". The hotel has lots of lake view tables, some under a canopy of plants the other on a terrace overlooking Bellagio and with a great view of the lake and mountains.

The staff were kind and friendly. The waiter, a strapping young man in our case, was very attentive and ready to make some small talk without ever being overbearing.

The food was good, somewhat inventive. Mostly hits with some misses. I would recommend the Spaghetti with Lavarello bottarga and cauliflower.

One might be paying slightly more because of the lake side view, and in my opinion it was well worth it!

Wonderful boutique hotel, great staff, awesome location on the lake. Quiet and a stone throw from the town's hubs.

We enjoyed a lovely apertivo with a spectacular view on the deck of the Hotel du Lac. They brought us lovely complementary cheese, olives & prosciutto with our Aperol Spritz. Romantic and spectacular! We wished we had known about the Hotel du Lac prior to our visit as we were not happy with our B&B and would have stayed there instead.

Breathtaking views of the Lake.
Service was super and the setting on the Terrace worthy of that special occasion.
The menu wasn't extensive but was all beautifully prepared with items presented in a 'fine dining' setting.
Fair price for beautiful food.
Delighted to have dined there.
Note dinner is not available for non residents

A lovely atmosphere and good food on the terrace right on the lake. The service is friendly and efficient and the dishes reasonably priced. It really is worth finding in the alleyways of this quaint old lakeside little town which is easily reached by the lake boats
