Start your mornings with a buffet or a la carte breakfast, and at lunch or dinner, choose from fine Italian cuisine or relaxed lakeside dining. The "Little Gourmets" program offers a range of child-friendly menus and for older guests, the San Marco Lounge & Bar and Sky Bar provides perfect spaces for pre-dinner cocktails.
La Terrazza – This adults-only restaurant reinterprets Italian traditions with dishes such as black olive-crusted salmon with a curried zucchini and purple cabbage sauce. With wicker chairs, original art, and live piano music, it is the perfect place for a romantic candlelit dinner. Its summer terrace converts to a conservatory in winter.
Ristorante & Bistro San Marco – Start the day with a breakfast buffet that includes fruit, eggs, pastries, cold meats, and cheese. For lunch and dinner, the kitchen shifts to more formal fare, with a varied and frequently changing menu that includes wood-fired meats and occasional Indian specialties.

Beach Lounge & Pizzeria San Marco – This lakeside beach venue is a firm favorite with family groups. Stop in for a crisp salad, fresh-baked pizza, or vegetable focaccia.
Fun Pool Corner – Refuel and hydrate with a cold drink, light snack, or scoops of ice cream by the pool.
San Marco Lounge & Bar – Enjoy a refreshing aperitivo at this atmospheric lounge, or return after dinner for cocktails or fine whiskey by a roaring fire.
