We enjoyed a wonderful lunch with superb service. Although the menu was quite limited we thoroughly enjoyed the fish and the desserts were very, very nice too. All up, a great dining experience. Thank you to all the restaurant staff at Bistro Lago.

I had scotch for my dinner at Bistro Lago, and that was fantastic.. Ordered Medium-rare. Crispy outside melting inside. liked mesh potatoes. My favoriate dessert is apple tart with ice cream. It is so good, but for an improvement, it was too sweet after eating it all. Still, first bite was heaven.

Lovely Birthday lunch for two at Bistro Lago. Service was outstanding with, for me, the perfect balance between friendliness and professionalism. We're small eaters so ordered a glass of wine with a main course of Lamb and Beef - both of which were superb. Cooked to perfection and super tasty. One of only two parties in the restaurant but did not feel overexposed. Lovely setting. Would absolutely dine here again :)

We took our visitors to Bistro Lago last night...and had what can only be described as a memorable meal..! From when we arrived to a warm welcome - to being presented with a delightful menu and an equally delightful waitress...plus we have to say your/our sommelier [Portuguese] was one of the best we have encountered...it all was HUGELY enjoyable! We almost didn't want to leave you... We WILL be back - soon :-)

Unfortunately we found the food to not be that of Hilton standard. Beef creek ravioli should have been served with a spoon to fully enjoy the beef broth. Taurine should have been served with a crustini. Lamb needed more caramalization and resting time to avoid bleeding out onto the plate . Service howewas exceptional
