 à la Roock

The cuisine is characterised by Mediterranean lightness and is based on classic French cuisine. There is also a pinch of flavourful adventure, inspired by Mattias Roock's culinary travels. This mixture gives the chef's creations a very special flavour. Weather permitting, you can enjoy a Mediterranean lunch or a romantic dinner at Cortile Leone. Choose your wine pairing from 530 excellent wines carefully selected by our team.

Sapori del nostro orto

"Sapori del Nostro Orto" translates as the flavours of our garden. The menu of the same name showcases the full range of Ticino dishes created by chef Mattias Roock. Let yourself be surprised by the variety and sophistication of the local produce.

"It gives me great pleasure to be able to inspire our guests with the flavourful beauty of Ticino. My work is a matter close to my heart and it is very fulfilling when this is recognised in this way" Mattias Roock


Fine wines from our winery

The winery with agricultural specialties Cantina alla Maggia is an essential part of our Resort. All our restaurants and bars offer you the opportunity to taste some of our products, to introduce you to the work we do in the fields and to give you local, exclusive and - above all - delicious experiences.

At the Locanda Barbarossa, the Cantina alla Maggia is best represented in the tasting menu "Sapori del nostro orto", and in an accompanying proposal by the glass consisting entirely of wines from our own production.

Together with my team, I try to create something extraordinary without spurning the ordinary.

If a flavour is missing, I like to grow it in the hotel's own herb and vegetable garden. In this way, I live the harmonious interplay of flavour and nature and try to surprise guests time and again with the variety and refinement of local produce.
